The Dog Grocer’s Rainbow Pops were created not just for aesthetic goals on a plate (although we do really adore how pretty they come together), they also pack a myriad of nutrients – containing a balanced blend of at least a vegetable, a fruit and a superfood in each frozen pop. Tropical fruits are intentionally added in the mixes so we eat seasonally, and the produce are cold pressed to allow easy digestion and absorption for canine digestive systems, with minimal destruction of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and micro nutrients.
What does it mean to eat a rainbow? Nature packs these powerful phytonutrients and presents them in a rainbow of beautiful colours. When we add a variety of colourful produce in our diets, we ensure that we get as many of those vitamins and minerals as possible.
Green Pop: Greens are high in vitamins K, B, and E, great for detoxification, immune system and digestion, and ensures healthy bones.
Yellow Pop: Yellow and orange produce contains varying amounts of antioxidants, such as vitamin C, as well as other phytochemicals, including carotenoids and bioflavonoids. Yellows promote a healthy heart, lower cholesterol and help with healthy joints and tissues.
Orange Pop: Yellow and orange produce contains varying amounts of antioxidants, such as vitamin C, as well as other phytochemicals, including carotenoids and bioflavonoids. They are great for cancer prevention, skin protection and supports good eyesight.
Red Pop: Red vegetables and fruits are loaded with powerful, healthy antioxidants — such as lycopene and anthocyanins. They fight heart diseases, decrease blood pressure, aid cell renewal and prevent macular degeneration.
Purple Pop: Purple and blue produce promote longevity. They are nutrient dense sources of powerful antioxidants, including beneficial plant compounds called anthocyanins and resveratrol, studied extensively for their anti cancer and anti aging properties. Bioactive phytochemicals repair damage from oxidative stress and inflammation.
Black Pop: Activated charcoal in black pop is great for detoxification, acts as an emergency poison treatment and great for kidney function. Activated charcoal has a porous texture with a negative electrical charge. This attracts positively charged molecules, such as toxins and gases, trapping toxins and chemicals in the gut and carrying the toxins bound to its surface out of the body.
