Spirulina is a microscopic algae in the shape of a perfect spiral coil. It contains the most remarkable concentration of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain or herb. Its the highest protein food- over 60% all digestible vegetable protein. It has the highest concentration of beta carotene, vitamin B-12, iron and trace minerals and the rare essential fatty acid GLA. (gamma-linolenic acid)
Spirulina contains a number of unique phytonutrients like phycocyanin, polysaccharides and sulfolipids that enhance the immune system, possibly reducing the risk of infection, cancer and autoimmune disease. It is rich in natural carotenoid antioxidants that promote cellular health and reduce the risk of cancer. It has cleansing chlorophyll which helps detoxify our bodies of ever present pollution.
Both test-tube studies and animal-based research suggest that spirulina may help to:
• Strengthen the immune system
• Improve gastrointestinal health
• Aid in detoxification
• Reduce the rate of cancer
• Help allergies

This is the powerhouse of nutritional supplements containing vitamins, minerals, amino acids and a VERY high level of chlorphyll (one of the most effective cleansers and detoxifiers that nature offers). It also contains an ingredient called “chlorella growth factor” and highly rich in nucleic acids which aids aging and a weak immune system

Wheatgrass is a complete food in itself, containing all the essential vitamins, amino acids, and minerals needed to support human life. This organic wheatgrass powder is a handy way to enjoy all the benefits that eating wheatgrass has to offer your pet
Nutritionally, wheatgrass is a complete food that contains 98 of the 102 earth elements
The high chlorophyll content allows increased red blood cell production and high blood oxygenation. Wheatgrass powder, derived from wheatgrass, is a natural detoxifier, and since millions of the world’s canines survive on shop-bought dry foods which may contain an occasional ingredient not necessarily beneficial to your hound, wheatgrass can be helpful in ridding your dogs body of the toxins it doesn’t need.
Wheatgrass is known to be helpful in digestion, and can also relieve constipation, which when prolonged can cause difficult or painful passing of feces. A small amount of powdered wheatgrass added to a dog’s water bowl can help with hydration, and proper water consumption also reduces the possibility of constipation. Equally uncomfortable are issues of the bladder, which wheatgrass has also been shown to relieve
Wheatgrass contains vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, calcium, magnesium and amino acids. All dogs need vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, and while these are normally contained within a well-balanced food, vitamin deficiency can occur, especially as your dog ages. Wheatgrass powder is also used for its anti-inflammatory properties, which can aid the geriatric dog with issues such as arthritis.

Kelp is a recognized food supplement for humans. Now vets and advocates of an holistic approach to pet health recommend it for dogs and other animals. This seaweed is rich in natural salts and minerals, and it has a number of benefits for your dog’s health.
Thyroid, Adrenal and Pituitary Glands
Kelp is known for being iodine-rich. Thyroid problems are often associated with an iodine deficiency, and kelp as a natural source of iodine is a long-standing medical treatment for people with thyroid problems. The rich mix of iodine and other minerals in kelp makes it an ideal supplement to keep your pup’s entire glandular system, particularly the thyroid, adrenal and pituitary glands, in healthy working order. This in turn ensures your dog’s metabolism works efficiently, which is an important element in maintaining a healthy weight. If your pet has hypothyroidism, where the thyroid function slows down, kelp is recommended as a supplement to the standard thyroxine treatment usually prescribed by vets.
Allergies and Fleas
Anything which helps flea control is good news for dog owners. Diane Stein, in her book “The Natural Remedy Book for Dogs and Cats,” says after three weeks of kelp supplementation there is a noticeable reduction in fleas on animals who have an infestation. This suggests that kelp repulses fleas and that using the supplement regularly is a useful addition to chemical flea treatments. Kelp also reduces itchiness in those dogs with skin allergies and improves the overall condition of your dog’s skin and coat.
Kelp also supports many of your dog’s other body functions. It cleanses the digestive system and keeps its juices balanced. Because it is high in iron it fortifies the blood, which then helps the heart to pump more efficiently. In older dogs especially it is recommended for strengthening the immune system, which can protect them from a range of diseases. Also, dogs on kelp supplements are thought to heal faster from surgery, because the amino acids in the seaweed support tissue repair. And it could help you and your dog to live longer. The Japanese have long maintained that eating seaweed is a source of their longevity.
