Also perfect to use in combination with HOKAMIX Derma to achieve quicker results.

- ideal ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
- additional Omega-7 fatty acids (to promote the regeneration of the skin)
- additional Omega-9 fatty acids (to support the heart function and maintain a good cholesterol level)
- effective after 4 – 5 days
- tackles problems from inside the body
We can differentiate between:
- essential fatty acids (necessary)
- non-essential fatty acids (can be produced by the body itself )
- unsaturated fatty acids (which are more valuable to the organism)
- saturated fatty acids (energy supplier)
Essential fatty acids:
The entire body tissue and every organ is composed of very specific cells. The skin is the body’s largest organ and consists of innumerable single cells, just as one single hair does. Essential, unsaturated fatty acids are a component of every cell membrane. If there is a deficiency of these fatty acids, this will be of influence to the whole tissue. This results in skin problems such as scaly skin, eczema, brittle hair or a coat which is too loose and hair that constantly and easily falls out. As some fatty acids are essential, they must be supplied to the body through food. It therefore does not make sense to simply add pure oils such as sunflower, olive, salmon or evening primrose oil. These oils only contain one of the different kinds of fatty acids at a time.
HOKAMIX Skin & Shine meets the necessary ratio of unsaturated fatty acids and contains naturally high percentages of lecithin, oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, palmitin acid, stearic acid, arachidonic acid, glycerids. If you add HOKAMIX Skin & Shine to your pet’s food every day, you will soon see the skin tissue healing, decreased dryness and less shedding.
