Benefits of Fermented Fish Stock:
It contains a substance known as glycoaminoglycans or GAGs. Basically, GAGs are a major component of joint cartilage, glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid - all things you use for optimal joint support. It is also high in anti-inflammatory amino acids which helps reduce the swelling that causes arthritis. Also contained within, is gelatin, which coats the joints and act as a shock absorber between joints. In short, fermented fish stock can help a dog or cat that suffers from joint ailments and even prevent your healthy pet from having issues.
It is a natural source of iodine and thyroid nutrients - perfect for pets that are pre-disposed to hypothyroidism, are borderline or who actively have hypothyroidism.
Fish stock has been shown to be beneficial in pets with kidney issues. If you currently have your dog or cat on a low protein prescription kibble and have not made the switch to an appropriate raw kidney diet, fish stock will help reduce your pets need for protein by 50%. It contains high amounts of arginine which is required by the body to metabolize protein waste. It also reduces blood pressure, both of which take stress off of the already weak kidneys.
Both the digestive system and the liver are impacted by the fish stock in beneficial ways. First, gelatin has the ability to line the digestive system which acts as a barrier to bad bacteria, helps heal leaky gut syndrome and helps ease colitis. It holds digestive juices in the belly longer which aids in digestion of nutrients and aids in increased absorption of vitamins and minerals. It is high in glycine which encourages liver detox.
