Foundations of Skin & Coat Health

Rich in omega fatty acids, Glimmer is a great way to support skin and coat health. With EPA, DHA, and GLA, Glimmer maintains the skin’s normal moisture content and may help tame seasonal shedding. This dog skin care supplement may also lend a helping hand during allergy season. The perfect boost for dogs of all ages! Regular $108.97

Clear AllerQi + Glimmer

A supplement for dogs and cats with seasonal allergies, Clear AllerQi cools the skin & harmonizes the body’s defenses to cope with allergic reactions due to environmental factors. This allergy support supplement helps maintain healthy skin and normal histamine levels, all while supporting the body’s detoxification process.

Milk Thistle + Clear AllerQi + Glimmer

Our 100% organic ground milk thistle is the cherry on top of our skin and coat support line. Helping with normal, healthy liver function, Milk Thistle supports the body’s natural detoxification process, especially after exposure to heavy metal or environmental toxins.

Dr. Chris Bessent says: "the body is like a gently simmering pot of water..."

When the pot begins to boil over, it’s the equivalent of an allergic reaction. This is because there is an imbalance of heat and fluid in the body. As the pot boils, the vital fluids in the body evaporate and phlegm accumulates (which is what causes an allergic dog’s coat to be greasy, gooey, or stinky). In order to stop the boiling, you need to either turn down the heat with heat-draining herbs and add more water to the pot with fluid-protecting herbs.

Some Key Components To Ultimate Skin & Coat Health

Seasonal allergies are a result of the body over-reacting to environmental allergens that invade the body, like pollen, dust, and molds. While these things aren’t inherently dangerous, the body can categorize them as threats anyway and react in a way that causes imbalance. Even outside of allergy seasons, the skin needs proper care and nourishment to remain healthy. The skin and coat can benefit greatly from the following things:

Omega 3s
Heat-Draining Herbs
Milk Thistle
Fluid-Protecting Herbs
Essential GLA

Krill & anchovy are super great protein-based sources of EPA and DHA (ideal for a carnivore!). They are also very tiny fish, which makes them less of a harbor for high mercury levels. Unlike salmon (which is often used as a source of Omega 3), anchovy and krill are at the bottom of the food chain, so they do not experience the effects of biomagnification quite like salmon do.

A Closer Look at Oils


Oils have long been used for maintaining hydrated skin. They are a natural way to restore moisture to the surface of the body, promoting health skin and a shiny coat. Oils are derived from fats, which have a complex family tree.

 

Saturated fats break off into long-chain and medium-chain triglycerides (and are generally bad for you in large amounts). Beneath long-chains are the “bad fats”, AKA the ones that really aren’t good for you. Coconut oil comes from the medium-chain triglycerides and is one of the few types of saturated fat that can be good for the body. Unsaturated fats (the “good fats”) split off into monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids fall under the polyunsaturated side.
