The fruit of the Australian native Davdison plum is rich in flavonoids, vitamins, minerals and several other important secondary metabolites, such as anthocyanins as well as proanthocyanidins. We explain how that benefits dogs and why we include it in our supplements, especially for senior dogs.
Olive is a rich source of valuable nutrients and bioactive substances of medicinal and therapeutic interest. Olive fruit contains phenolic acids, and it’s these phenolic acids, and in particular, hydroxytyrosol, that’s behind the inclusion of olive fruit extract in our Hypoallergenic balancing pre-mix, designed to help support a healthy skin and coat.
Nutritional yeast (also known as savoury yeast flakes, yeshi, nooch, or brufax) is an inactive form of yeast that is a powerhouse of essential amino acids, B-vitamins, bioactive minerals, immune system boosters, and powerful antioxidants.

Polyphenols are natural chemicals that are abundantly found in many plants including fruits and vegetables, green tea, black tea, coffee, chocolate, olives, red wine, and extra virgin olive oil. (Not all of those foods are good for dogs and cats BTW!)
These super-phytochemicals are jam-packed with antioxidants and a big reason we focus so much on whole foods in our Bestie Kitchen supplements.
