Green Gruff chews are meant to be taken every day so our pets experience the ongoing support of having a daily supplement. The vitamins and minerals found in our chews aid in dogs living a happier, healthier life. The ingredients in many dog foods aren’t enough to provide the nutrients necessary for a longer life.
At some point in your dog's lifetime, they will likely experience anxiety-related issues, skin irritation, or mobility problems. Green Gruff supplements can aid in combating these issues and assist with living a healthy and comfortable life. Read our FAQs for more information too.
The Key Ingredients That Make Green Gruff Great
We've teamed up with Dr. Jeffrey Powers, former chair and current council member of the American Veterinary Medical Association for biologics and therapeutics. With help from Dr. Powers, Green Gruff supplements are made with sustainable protein and organic ingredients that will promote and support overall health. Protein is very important in our pets' diets - which is why we set out to find the best source for our supplements - Crickets. Cricket protein promotes faster absorption and easier processing of actives into the bloodstream. Cricket protein also contains the 9 essential amino acids dogs need in their diet, has more iron than spinach, and more calcium than milk. All elements of cricket protein harmoniously work together to produce an amplified endowment effect through interaction. On top of the health benefits cricket protein provides, it is an entirely more sustainable protein than any other naturally found. With less land usage than chickens, more protein per pound and less emissions than livestock, cricket protein is ideal in terms of sustainability.
We don't just make the best dog supplements, we make them the best way too
All of our supplements are made without the use of heat or water. By eliminating the use of heat, all of the beneficial ingredients and nutrients within are preserved. Without using water in our supplements, they're guaranteed to never dry out. Not including water also allows us to avoid the high-level use of preservatives and other preserving additives that other manufacturers include to extend shelf-life. Our supplements are all made in the US within 100% solar powered facilities. Our process is also Good Manufacturing Practice certified and The Safe Quality Food Program certified.
What are the Benefits of CBD?
CBD is a product that is directly derived from cannabis. Some associate cannabis with the psychoactive or "high" effect that comes from the THC cannabinoid in the marijuana plant. However, while it is a derivative of the marijuana plant, CBD does not induce a high and has been found to provide many benefits for humans, and for our furry best friends. Among the large amounts of benefits CBD can offer, aiding in anxiety-related behavior is the most well known. CBD has been found to alter the way our dog's brain receptors respond to serotonin, a chemical linked to mental health. CBD can reduce stress, the correlating physiological effects such as elevated heart rate, improve PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) symptoms, aiding in better sleep, and much more.
Another supportive element of CBD is neuro-protection. CBD has been found to slow, or sometimes stop, neurodegenerative disorders. Neurodegenerative disorders deteriorate the brain and nerves over time. CBD has also been found to reduce the brain inflammation that accompanies, and more often than not, worsens neurodegenerative disorders. Giving your pup Green Gruff with CBD can aid in maintaining their brain and mental health for years.
Lastly, CBD when given to your pup, can aid in pain management. As we know, our younger dogs love to be active. Dogs get sore just like humans do and although we all wish they can talk to us, they can't always tell us if there's something wrong. CBD can support aiding the pain associated with soreness, pulled muscles, sprained limbs, and more. For older dogs or dogs susceptible to joint or back pain, CBD can support the return to long games of fetch, outdoor walks, and having fun like they did when they were puppies!
At Green Gruff, we see the benefits of CBD in our dogs every day. It has helped all of our furry best friends in many ways and we're sure your pup can benefit too. Giving your dog Green Gruff with CBD can allow for mail-man chases, long games of fetch, and head-out-the-window rides for years to come.
