For anxious pets or those with behavioural issues we recommend our Health + Calmness Formula with Hemp Seed. In addition to sugarcane fibre and red sorghum, Chica Health + Calmness also contains defatted hemp seed. Defatted simply means that much of the excess oil is removed by crushing and drying the hemp seed.
Hemp is rich in protein, fibre and omega fatty acids, containing essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals. While some of us associate hemp with the psychedelic properties of THC, the hemp used in Chica is derived from a completely different cultivar. In Australia hemp used for foods must be tested to be free of THC.
Hemp has been scientifically shown to deliver anti-inflammatory properties, improve cardiovascular health, boost the immune system, promote healthy skin, can improve brain function and reduce hyperactivity.
Rich in protein and fibre, hemp seed also promotes a healthy gut, can help liver function and can reduce cholesterol.
