Lucerne, scientifically known as Medicago sativa, is a herbaceous plant and is also known as ‘alfalfa’. Alfalfa is grown worldwide as a forage crop for livestock because of its rich nutritional value and ability to fix nitrogen from the air into the soil. This plant is also a useful addition to their food for dogs:

1. Rich in nutrients:

Lucerne is a nutritious crop and contains a wide range of nutrients, including protein, fiber, vitamins (A, B, C, E and K) and minerals (iron, calcium, magnesium).

Magnesium is involved in the conversion of food into energy. It plays a crucial role in the activation of enzymes necessary for the production and storage of energy in cells.

One of the most important functions of iron in the body is the transport of oxygen. It is an essential part of hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that binds and transports oxygen from the lungs to tissues and organs.

2. Source of proteins:

Lucerne is a good vegetable protein source. Proteins are the building blocks of the body. They play a crucial role in the construction, growth and repair of tissues such as muscles, bones, skin, coat, nails and internal organs. In addition, proteins act as enzymes that catalyze biochemical reactions in the body. Enzymes are involved in various processes, such as digestion, metabolism and energy production.

In addition, some hormones, which influence the regulation of various bodily functions, are made from proteins.

3. Fiber content:

The combination of soluble and insoluble fibers in alfalfa contributes to healthy intestinal function, regulation of bowel movements and support of a balanced intestinal flora. It is important to include fiber-rich foods in a dog’s diet to promote digestion and, for example, prevent hard stools.

4. Antioxidants:

Lucerne contains natural antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, which, among other things, help neutralize free radicals in the body.

Vitamin E is an essential nutrient for dogs, meaning a dog’s body cannot produce this vitamin on its own and it must come from their diet.

Furthermore, vitamin E is involved in the development and maintenance of muscles. It can help reduce muscle stiffness and improve overall muscle function. During times of stress, illness or recovery from injury, the need for vitamin C may increase.

5. Minerals for bone health:

Alfalfa is a source of minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which are essential for bone and dental health. These minerals contribute to supporting a strong skeleton in dogs.
