The Science of Chica
The benefits of Chica to your pet’s health and wellbeing have been extensively researched. Both the underlying science and the real outcomes have been tested through scientific and animal trials.
Trials have demonstrated Chica’s effectiveness in:
Reducing systemic inflammation
Improving intestinal health
Improving control of blood sugar levels
Feeding and nurturing the microbiome (broad spectrum pre-biotic)
Lowering the glycaemic index of foods when consumed as part of a meal (makes your pet feel full for longer which reduces overeating)
Reducing recovery time after surgery
Reducing the incidence and severity of chronic constipation
Increased weight loss when used as a part of a diet.
Our research has been conducted over eleven years, with our scientists working in collaboration with five of Australia’s most prestigious universities (Macquarie University, Sydney University, and the University of New South Wales, Queensland University of technology, Monash University), conducting multiple clinical trials in hospitals in Australia and overseas (including at Royal Melbourne Hospital (AUS), Royal North Shore Hospital (AUS), and the Advocate Group Hospitals, (USA)). And our research work has been published in over a dozen peer reviewed medical journals and resulted in three PhDs being awarded.
Better yet, our clinical research and testing has not been conducted on animals, but rather on you and I. That’s right, the research supporting the health benefits of Chica has largely been conducted on humans.
