BRAZIL NUT POWDER - SKIN, COAT & DIGESTIVE SUPPORT* THE PETZ KITCHEN ADULT DOG & CAT HOLISTIC SUPER FOODS* 

The BRAZIL NUT grows wild in the Amazonian Rain Forest River Basin of Peru. It is an enormous canopy tree, growing to heights over 150 feet, and produces woody, seed pods containing clusters of nuts. Although widely known as a nut, it's actually a seed!

BRAZIL NUT POWDER is prized for its renewing and lubricating actions on skin and coat as a primary emollient, and may help address alopecia (hair loss, thinning coat), including its vulnerary (wound healing) plant actions to help promote hair growth. Its antioxidant content may help condition skin and coat and may help protect against follicle damage related to hair loss.

BRAZIL NUT POWDER may also be helpful for dogs and cats who struggle to maintain or gain weight, however, use in moderation and do not exceed suggested dosage due to its high fat content. Using BRAZIL NUT POWDER in excess of the suggested dosage could result in excessive weight gain due to its high fat content and could potentially lead to blocked digestion or pancreatitis in dogs or cats. 

When used as instructed, BRAZIL NUT POWDER is rich in fiber and its tannin content may help address conditional needs related to stomach upset while also protecting the liver and its antioxidant content has been used to for its special protective actions for prostate health.

The BRAZIL NUT requires a complex, interrelated, ecological system for the tree and seed nuts to thrive. A single specific bee species (genus Xylocopa) is required for pollination of the tree, and a single insect species influences the seed and fruit production. A single animal species called the agouti rat is capable of chewing through the durable fruit pods to ensure the seeds are dispersed, promoting future generational growth. Additionally, the male stamen of the plant has a structure not found in any other plant family in the world!

The trees, bees, insects and animals all reflect the delicate and intricately intertwined survival requirements of this tree; a common story of dependency that exists for all species in the Amazonian rainforest and river basin regions. As such, it is at risk for deforestation, and The Petz Kitchen only works with sustainable growers and harvesters of this invaluable but easily decimated tree.  

BRAZIL NUT POWDER contains a rather simplified nutritional profile in comparison with other Amazonian foods, representing approximately 70% fat and Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids comprised of palmitic, oleic, and linoleic and alpha linolenic acids and small amounts of myristic and stearic acids and phytosterols, plus 17% protein and dietary fiber.

BRAZIL NUT POWDER also contains amino acids such as cysteine (8%) and methionine (18%), and is rich in glutamine, glutamic acid, arginine and selenium. The amino acids help enhance the metabolism of selenium and other naturally occurring trace minerals including thiamine, copper, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous and zinc. A single serving of BRAZIL NUT POWDER can help provide the daily needs of selenium, when lacking in the diet.

Its natural, healthy phytochemistry includes plant actions such as antioxidant,  anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous (especially for the prostate), digestive, nutritive, emollient, hepatoprotective (liver protector) and vulnerary (wound healer).

Underweight and malnourished dogs and cats according to suggested dosage; for  dogs and cats requiring an emollient in their diets due to skin and coat loss.
