Animal Essentials Green Alternative offers a synergistic balance of Certified Organic Herbs and spirulina in a great tasting formula that is designed to compliment the natural diets of dogs and cats. When added to your companion’s home-prepared or premium natural pet food, this formula provides added measures of systemic support in a food-like form that the body can freely digest and utilize. Unlike high-potency vitamin supplements that may provide more nutrients than the body can utilize, Organic Green Alternative will not place an added burden upon the liver, kidneys and digestive system.
Made with the Highest Quality, Certified Organic Herbs:
Flax: It is rich in dietary fiber and Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA’s). The dietary fiber of flax (and the mucilage it contains) is very soothing, cleansing and supportive to the digestive tract.
Burdock: A plant food that is rich in vitamins and minerals, burdock has been used for thousands of years by herbalists who recognize its powerful antioxidant properties.
Pumpkin Seeds: Besides tasting good (to animals as well as people), the oil that comprises up to 50% of pumpkin seeds is very rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. The seeds also provide a special combination of fiber, and a chemical compound called cucurbitin. Herbalists believe that these constituents are useful for keeping intestinal parasite populations (especially tapeworms) in check.
Spirulina: These blue-green algae contain one of the richest and most assimilable sources of vitamins and minerals in nature. It is well described as a “super food”. Up to 60% of the spirulina’s physical structure is the form of digestible protein, and just 3 grams of the pretty bluegreen powder may contain as much at 15,000 I.U.’s of antioxidant betacarotene (vitamin A), 755 mcg. of vitamin B-complex (including B-12), over 60 mg. of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids, and dozens of trace and essential minerals – including as much as 12 mg. of calcium, 30 mg. of phosphorus, and 45 mg. of potassium – for healthy bones and muscles. Spirulina is also a very rich source of chlorophyll, the stuff that makes plants green. Chlorophyll is believed to protect cells against carcinogenic compounds.
Garlic: A small amount of garlic contains considerable amounts of protein, fiber, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sodium, vitamin A, thiamin, niacin, taurine, zinc, riboflavin and dozens of other nutritive compounds. Plus, a single clove of fresh garlic may contain as much as 100 mg. of sulfur compounds, which have been shown to posses various immune system support and antioxidant qualities.
Nettle: Nettle is a source of crude protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, beta-carotene and potassium, along with vitamins A, C, D and B-complex.
