I am always on the lookout for the next interesting, unique, special, and wickedly cool products for our beloved fur babies. (Yes, my pets are my babies!) This particular one I was very interested in because of the gaining popularity of current nutritional trends, AND because it is not only beneficial to cats but their humans as well!
Before I tell you about the specific product and company I picked, let me first tell you what it is… So what is it?
Wheatgrass (aka: Cat Grass) has gained a lot more notice and increased popularity because it is a super rich antioxidant packed with vitamins and minerals which make it the “Purrfect” supplement for us humans and our cats! It’s a win/win all around!
So we know, wheatgrass is a nutritional powerhouse. It is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Zinc, Manganese, and more! Now let’s explore the benefits!
Benefits of Wheatgrass for Cats (and Humans)
Wheatgrass contains an amazing amount of chlorophyll… Up to 70%! Chlorophyll is a natural blood booster that cleanses the blood and helps keep it healthy. It is also known to help slow down the aging process so this is a phenomenal added benefit for aging or elderly cats
Wheatgrass naturally turns off the appetite triggers in the brain while causing your cat to feel less hungry and therefore eat less. Wheatgrass, as a juice, is more potent. One ounce of juice has the nutritional value of two pounds worth as produce.
Fertility and hormones
If you’re a breeder, this is a great dietary addition because the amount of magnesium that wheatgrass produces helps to bind and heal sex hormones.
Wheatgrass naturally AIDS in the digestion process and is known to control, or even eliminate, hairballs for most cats!
If your cat naturally suffers from dry or flaking skin, most of the time this is attributed to their gut. Wheatgrass naturally eliminates bad bacteria and helps good bacteria. A natural balance results in beautiful skin and coat.
Note: Be sure you are also feeding a diet void of fillers and by-products. Check your ingredients list on your pets food. Avoid foods with corn, wheat, soy, and by-products.
Wheatgrass helps ease the pain of arthritis. Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints, and surrounding tissues. Wheatgrass naturally helps restore the muscle tissue and joint health by adding rich amounts of nutrients to these areas. This is especially beneficial to aging and elderly cats with mobility issues.
Removes heavy metals and fluorides
Wheatgrass naturally binds and removes heavy metals from the body of any living organism. It can even remove fluorides from water. It only takes about one ounce to a gallon to neutralize this. So, not only is this good for your cat, but for you as well!
Because wheatgrass is loaded with vitamins A E and C, it is the perfect supplement for eye health and eye trouble, especially for elderly cats.
It is said that wheatgrass will not only cure issues in the teeth and gums, but also aids in the prevention of tooth decay.
Methods for feeding wheatgrass
Some cats may enjoy the taste of wheatgrass as a juice, however most do not. You can offer a powdered form of it to their food as well. I’ve found the most enjoyable way is to grow it yourself! Your cat will love to graze on the fresh grass in it’s natural form.
Which leads me to…
