Sprinkled Superfoods are not only the easy to use to help maintain a healthy lifestyle, they are known to be super healthy for hoomans. They boost our immune system even improve chronic conditions for us! Well the same goes for your pup. Dogs have an assortment of important dietary needs and with increasing concern over the ingredients in commercial processed dog food, healthy superfoods are an excellent addition to every dog’s diet. These sprinkle superfoods are easy to get in any healthy stores, they come in powder form so you can just sprinkle them on top of your pup’s daily bowl!
Here’s the top 10 PawHi recommended superfoods to sprinkle into your dog’s bowl!
Moringa is loaded with vitamins and minerals! It contains 12 times the amount of vitamin C than oranges, as well as high amounts of Iron, calcium, Vitamin A and Potassium. Moringa is also rich in antioxidants including beta-carotene, quercetin and chlorogenic acid. This has been shown to slow cells’ absorption of sugar, lower blood sugar levels and cholesterol. Moringa even helps to fight against cancer!
There are a number of strong benefits of how this herb can help your dog! Because all dogs are subject to arthritis, turmeric can play an important role due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It tops the list for natural remedies for treating dogs with stiff joints as well as helping to prevent blood clots and even cancer.
If you think you spend you so much money on your dog’s calcium and extra vitamins whilst you always throw your left over egg shell in the bin, then don’t do it again! Egg shell, especially when raw, is rich in minerals and calcium. Grind and make sure it’s powdery so it’s easy for you to sprinkle it on their bowl, make sure they are fresh too!
Chia Seeds are becoming more and more popular with us hoomans to help boost our health, so why not add them to your dogs diet!? These superseeds are rich in Omega 3 and fiber, whats even better is that unlike flax seeds we don’t need to grind them, just sprinkle.
One of the richest natural sources of amino acids, kelp is 25% protein and 2% fat. Full of vitamins and minerals, Kelp contain iodine, which is essential for healthy thyroid function, and iron to support circulation. Kelp is also really beneficial for out pups skin and coat!

Maca is rich in vitamin B, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium and amino acids.
Maca has many health benefits which have been great for hoomans, and is also proving to be great for our four legged furriends too! Maca is a good general superfood for overall health, energy, moods, reproductive health and skin.
Recently it has been discovered that pumpkin seeds work as an effective deworming agent against tapeworms and other intestinal parasites in dogs.
