A worthy introduction: Seaweed

Supreme Source is adding seaweed to its cat and dog foods. This USDA organic seaweed is loaded with vitamins and potential health benefits.

Why Seaweed?
The seaweed found in Supreme Source is Ascophyllum nodosum, a species of seaweed cultivated on the lush shores of Nova Scotia. The weather conditions on this rocky coast of the Northern Atlantic produce a naturally hardy strain of seaweed that is hand-harvested in small batches by farmers with decades of experience. The seaweed is blended into a nutritional supplement and then infused into Supreme Source pet food.

For centuries, seaweed has been consumed for its purported health benefits. Recently, scientists have begun to recognize the potential health benefits of seaweed consumption and are beginning to study these benefits. A growing number of animal studies and in vitro studies support the potential health benefits of seaweed in pet food.

Superfood of the Sea
You may be wondering, what kind of health benefits? Not to get too scientific, but seaweed contains biological compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols have been found to have antioxidants and can improve the immune system and digestive health of our pets.

Seaweed is loaded with nutrients, vitamins and minerals, making it the perfect complement to the already included antioxidants and mix of fruits and veggies found in Supreme Source pet food. Seaweed contains fiber, which promotes healthy bowel movements, along with carbohydrates that act as prebiotics and promote healthy gut bacteria.

Every bag of Supreme Source pet food is now infused with this superfood ingredient. Look for it at your local grocery store!
