Why is phycocyanin important?

The blue plant substance has anti-inflammatory properties and protects the cells as a radical scavenger.

How well the spirulina powder can be absorbed and utilized by the body also depends on how it is prepared. For example, pureed dishes such as soups or shakes simplify the work of the digestive system. Whether vegetable or rice dishes, salads and even pastries: Spirulina algae, in combination with other healthy foods and spices, can make tasty dishes with a kick, which are easily digestible and do not burden the body

What is healthy for the master, is also healthy for the animal in smaller portions. Most cats today lack important minerals and vital substances such as vitamin A, vitamin B1, essential fatty acids, selenium, vitamin E, calcium and phosphorus, because many cat foods can only contain and supply these artificially or not at all. From these deficiency symptoms usually follow various diseases. 

The cat food "Purina ONE® DualNature™" supports the immune system through spirulina and thus provides the cats with vitamins and a lot of protein, which should contribute to the stability of the blood sugar level and strengthen the bones of the four-legged friends.
