The Science is Clear...
Humans should be powered by fat and protein - not carbs. And the same goes for our dogs!
Every day, more and more research supports a low carb diet for optimal nutrition and health. Ketogenic and low carb diets are being researched as nutritional strategies to optimize health in many ways, including: Longevity, Improved Cognition, Cancer Prevention & Treatment, Seizure Control, and more.
You can find many of these powerful studies below. And as more research is published, we'll continue to update this list.
