It was love at first bite when Cooper tasted these meaty treats modeled after the Italian gnocchi made by his sweetheart Nutella’s mom. We added pure L-Carnitine to help support antioxidant activity, facilitating absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, maintaining the integrity of smooth muscles, and facilitating energy source utilization by the cardio-vascular system.
Sourced from deboned fresh meat, beef is an excellent source of digestible protein that contributes to maintaining superior nutritional value and taste. It is very high in Lysine, Leucine and Arginine, three essential amino acids important for the maintenance of muscles, organs and metabolism, and is also a source of energy given its moderate fat content.
Source of highly digestible proteins from fresh eggs, offering a high level of fat as well. Eggs have the highest Biological Value of any protein source, with a 100 percent score as they contain all the essential amino acids (those that must be present in food as they cannot be produced at all or in sufficient quantities by the body to meet requirements), and elements necessary for the creation of an entire living being.
*Biological Value (B.V.) is defined as the relationship (%) between quantity of the nutrient (protein) absorbed and the amount used and held in the animal’s body. It is evaluated according to the amount of essential amino acids «E.A.A.» present versus the amount of nonessential amino acids «N.E.A.A.». The more E.A.A. present, the higher the B.V.
Source of highly digestible proteins from fresh eggs without fat (no yolk). Eggs have the highest Biological Value of any protein source, with a 100 percent score as they contain all the essential amino acids.
Rice is the most widely grown cereal in the world after wheat. Brown rice is a whole grain rice that still contains bran and germ, has a higher content of fiber, minerals, and B-complex vitamins. It is the most nutritious of rice, because only the bark has been removed. Still containing the germ, brown rice is more likely to go rancid. It is a source of highly digestible carbohydrates containing very low level of fibers (shelled grains).
Oat is a source of highly digestible carbohydrates containing a good level of fiber that aids digestive system functions. It may also help maintain a good level of energy by its influence on blood sugar level as well as on the cardio-vascular system.
Also called vitamin Bt, it is an amino acid that has an important role in the utilization of fat as a source of energy and hence in weight control. The body obtains it either by endogenous synthesis or from foods such as red meat. Its primary function is to facilitate the transport of long-chain fatty acids into mitochondria, which are converted into energy. These fatty acids cannot otherwise cross the mitochondrial membrane. Only a certain percent of the L-carnitine requirement is met by synthesis in the body, so supplementation is often a positive element for the metabolism. Other roles of L-carnitine in the body include support for antioxidant activity, facilitating absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, maintaining the integrity of smooth muscles, and facilitating energy source utilization by the cardio-vascular system.
