100% organic wholefood vitamin-mineral supplement SFRAW HEALTHY POWDER
Over 33 years of Natural Rearing/Raw Feeding experience and research went into the sourcing of unique ingredients used to produce a completely updated version of this traditional daily Vitamin-Mineral blend.
SFRAW Healthy Powder contains "best in the world" sourced 100% organic whole-food ingredients that help fill in the gaps that may be seen in home-prepared fresh food diets which rely on various butcher cuts of meat/organs/bones, etc. instead of feeding whole prey.
The ideal nutritional template for dogs & cats is that of wild foraging whole prey animals eaten off the natural substrate in nature (soil, etc). Wild-foraging species of whole prey include nutritional components missing from butchered and processed for human consumption animals such as the fur/feather, hide/skin/connective tissue, and blood. In addition, the nutritional profile of wild-foraging prey species (protein, fat, bone and organs) differs from that of domestically raised species of animals raised for food and processed for human consumption. Our soils have, over time, become depleted of minerals and beneficial microbes. We have learned just how important it is to fill in these nutritional "gaps" created with the removal of these parts from the natural animal through modern processing, as well as possible nutrient gaps found in wild sourced foods.
We make two versions of our HEALTHY POWDER:
1) HEALTHY POWDER (without bone meal) is the ideal supplemental to add to all of our SFRAW GRINDS and may be added to supplement any balanced meal. HEALTHY POWDER without bone meal can be safely doubled. It may also be safely added to any of our SFRAW FORMULAS during times of stress or whenever extra nutritional support may be beneficial. We recommend feeding HEALTHY POWDER in combination with our NUTRITIVE SEASONAL HERBS PLUS:
- RED GOLD
- COD LIVERS
- RAW FROZEN OMEGA-3 RICH SEAFOODS
- PASTURE-RAISED EGG YOLK
- and/or HEALTHY FATS such as GHEE or RAW, FULL-FAT PASTURE-RAISED DAIRY (UNSALTED BUTTER)
NOTE: Many of the same ingredients of our HEALTHY POWDER (plus more!) are included in our VITALITY BLEND. VITALITY BLEND should not be combined with HEALTHY POWDER for long periods of time, but these supplemental foods may be used in combination for short periods, as needed. Our VITALITY BLEND is added to all SFRAW FORMULAS and also sold separately as a FRESH/FROZEN raw wholefood multi vitamin-mineral supplement. During times of stress,
2) HEALTHY POWDER WITH BONE MEAL, especially when fed in combination with our NUTRITIVE SEASONAL HERBS + RED GOLD, COD LIVERS, RAW FROZEN OMEGA-3 RICH SEAFOODS, PASTURE-RAISED EGG YOLK and/or HEALTHY FATS such as GHEE or RAW, FULL-FAT PASTURE-RAISED DAIRY (UNSALTED BUTTER) is a unique raw meal “pre-mix” that includes additional calcium intended to be used to balance your pet’s ca:ph ratio in a home-prepared boneless meat/organ based diet only. Healthy Powder with Bone Meal is a simple pre-mix and an easy way to prepare balanced meals at home or to take on the road to make quick easy meals while travelling – simply combine with locally sourced fresh meat, meat with organs or meat with eggs.
Our Healthy Powder includes ingredients that mimic important nutritional components and nutrients provided naturally in whole prey:
The “FEATHERS & FUR” prebiotic fiber component is represented by the following ingredients:
- CAROB is 100% raw (this is exceptional, most “raw” carob powder is actually pre-roasted), organic and incredible food that supports gut health and digestion as a prebiotic low-glycemic insoluble fiber, and it also provides beneficial vitamins & minerals. As a traditional nutritive herb, carob was used to help prevent joint dysplasia when fed to growing puppies. Carob is an excellent source of calcium and potassium, and also contains magnesium, copper, iron, manganese, and zinc. It is a valuable source of vitamin B6, C, D, and E. Our Australian carob is the best quality and best tasting carob in the world and is 100% Certified Organic and Non GMO Certified.
- PSYLLIUM HUSK POWDER is a source of organic, gluten-free, low-glycemic insoluble fiber that maintains healthy bacterial balance in the gastrointestinal system as a prebiotic. It is well tolerated by most animals.
The “HIDE, SKIN, CONNECTIVE TISSUES” collagen component is represented by:
- COLLAGEN from pasture-raised beef for cellular repair throughout the body – particularly supportive of joint, gut and skin health.
The “BLOOD” and trace mineral component is represented by:
- KELP –an excellent source of iodine as well as sodium, potassium, magnesium and contains more than sixty bio-available minerals, vitamins, fiber, and a host of bioactive compounds and phytonutrients. Our certified organic kelp is an Icelandic blend of different species that is third-party tested for heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides, petroleum residues, radioactivity, and microbiological concerns.
- DULSE - good source of potassium, iron, and other essential minerals and vitamins, and it contains about 20% protein. Hand-harvested from carefully selected beds of the North Atlantic to be in compliance with Organic standards, ensuring maximum quality and minimal contamination. Tested for heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides, petroleum residues, radioactivity, and microbiological concerns.
- SPIRULINA - gram for gram, spirulina may be the single most nutritious food on the planet. It is an excellent source of protein (with all essential amino acids and similar in composition to eggs), vitamins and minerals including iron; carotenoids, GLA, SOD, and phycocyanin. Our spirulina is certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified.
“ANTIOXIDANTS” for living in a toxic world:
- OUR OWN WHOLEFOOD VITAMIN C - we prepare own organic superfruit blend for the best, cleanest and most useable and biologically recognizable forms of antioxidant vitamin C. We blend whole fruit Organic Acerola Cherries, Organic Amla, Organic Rosehips, Organic Camu Camu as a complete complex that includes ascorbic acid, bioflavanoids and important co-factors required for proper tissue growth and repair, red blood cell formation, collagen production, and adrenal gland function. While dogs make their own vitamin C, natural reserves may become depleted during periods of growth, breeding, illness, increased physical activity or stress. Using a 100% whole food source of vitamin C is important for the body to recognize the many beneficial compounds found in this powerful antioxidant.
