(Newswire.net — March 24, 2016) Kensington, CA — Recent media attention has focused on the restorative powers of superfoods for humans, but Dr. Helena Weil, Ph.D., of the Wellness Management Consultants firm near San Francisco, California knows that such superfoods can also help our four-legged companions live a healthier, longer life. The superfood Dr. Weil recommends in particular is known as “bone soup”, an inexpensive preparation made from boiling bones with vegetables and herbs. Sometimes called bone broth, it is filled with vital nutrients and trace elements that can help dogs recover from illnesses as well as to lead more active lives. “Bone soup has many benefits for dogs,” says Dr. Weil. “It is a great source of protein while it serves to detoxify the liver while protecting delicate joints.” To learn more about Dr. Weil and her background in nutrition, visit http://www.healthgrades.com/provider/helena-weil-xhhqd.

The broth Dr. Weil recommends for dog owners contains large amounts of substances like glucosamine and chondroitin, both proven to improve joint function in older patients – humans and animals alike. Hyaluronic acid found in the bone soup can stimulate the production of collagen, helping older joints and ligaments function like those of a much younger animal. The soup also promotes healthy digestion, helping to restore damaged intestinal linings and improving the appetites of dogs recovering from illnesses. The high gelatin content brings protein into the equation, allowing pet owners to reduce up to 50 percent of meat-based proteins in the animals’ diets.
