What it does
Important nutrients are missing in depleted soils, limited forage, feed processing and storage, and trends in pet and equine feed formulation. Seagreens® Ascophyllum nodosum contains all these nutrients. Its unusual breadth and density of nutrients – all of the vitamins, minerals, trace elements, polyphenols, amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, soluble fibre, enzymes and antioxidants – provide the micronutrients for domestic and grazing animals and sufficiency in soils and land-grown foods. In the soil this means support for microorganisms. In the plant it supports growth and vitality. In the animal, improved performance, immunity & temperament. It variously cleanses the blood and liver; repairs the hoof; maintains the bloom and overall condition; strengthens resistance and recovery and enhances the absorption and value of other feed nutrients.
How to use
Daily inclusion levels for each type and size of animal are also given in the necktag attached to each jar.
The Granules should be mixed in feed or given by hand and can also be infused in drinking water. Safe in permanent daily use. For livestock inclusion levels please request information about our agricultural Mineralizing Meal which has additional uses in composting, seed soaking, soil and watering.

What is Nutritious Food Seaweed?
NFS makes the quality of certified seaweed in a product transparent to consumers, with access to its nutritional profile. The total composition of NFS seaweed is monitored and must meet minimum and maximum criteria both for the good stuff (nutrients) and the bad stuff (contaminants), compliant with the most stringent international food safety standards. NFS is more than a quality standard, enabling the sustainable production of world class seaweed for human consumption which gives seaweed producers access to new markets at home and abroad. Rooted in the principles of biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming, with aspects of marine science, botany, nutrition and conservation, NFS has been administered by the Seaweed Health Foundation together with the Biodynamic Association since inception in 2014.

“I would like to order more Seagreens® Food Capsules as they have proved very beneficial. My husband and I can certainly tell the difference after not taking any for a while – a good test to show that we need to continue taking them. Our dog has also benefitted from the Seagreens® Pet & Equine Granules in recovering from a sprained back leg. He has more energy and better weight. We’ve noticed his digestion is not so good when we stop giving him the Granules.”

“All the cats and kittens are now having Pet & Equine Granules in their food. They are eating it up without any problems. They usually turn their noses up in suspicion when you add anything at all so this is good. It will be particularly interesting to see if there is any improvement in the breeding performance of Lily, who only ever has a single kitten! Also my young imported girl who had health problems as a kitten has just been mated and will be on it throughout her pregnancy.”

“I am writing to tell you about an experience with Seagreens that I hope you will find helpful. I have a Golden Retriever who has suffered from ‘hot spots’ all his life. For such a silly sounding name, the hot spot syndrome is an awful malady for both dog and owner to cope with. The spots are large raging sores that start out as an itch and can erupt anywhere on the dog’s body. There is no medication that seems to help. They just have to run their course. Because they itch so much and because the dog naturally scratches, a secondary infection is common. The sores take about a month to heal and I have not found a vet yet, who knows what causes them. They can only treat the resulting infections. We accidentally had a steer from a plumber who was working at our house, about a seaweed remedy he had found successful on his Golden Retriever. For three years we have been giving Tubby 1 teaspoon per day of your Seagreens Granules. In year 1 the hot spot eruptions diminished considerably but still appeared from time to time. In year 2 they vanished. We are now well into year 3 and so far, no new ones! Fingers crossed that the Seagreens® will continue to work. Please feel free to use this testimonial to help other Retriever owners in some way. Vets don’t seem to know about this and therefore neither do their clients. Retrievers are really wonderful dogs and this malady is horrible. They only know to scratch, lick or bite the spot and this only makes it worse. If you could do anything to help these lovely, happy, mad, wonderful dogs it would be incredibly kind. One last story – we go often to Cornwall where we walk by the sea. Tubby has always loved seaweed and eats it every time we go to the beach. I have always heard that animals have a way of knowing instinctively what is good for them. It makes you think there really is something to all this.”

“My 13 year old cairn terrier, Jasper, is taking Seagreens® Pet & Equine Granules and has been doing so all this year. He has a history of skin problems, digestive troubles and sensitivity to loud noise – in short, a bundle of problems. This year has been radically different. Usually by this time of year he is almost bald from tail to shoulders, from scratching and licking, and his tummy is not bloated any more. The only change to what I have tried in previous years is to start Jasper on your Seagreens®. so that is what I am crediting with his improved health. Many thanks, I could not recommend the product more highly.”

“I can confirm that the cat is thriving on your Pet & Equine Granules and my daughter is going to start her dog on them too. My other daughter, who took Seagreens® Food Capsules intermittently, has been encouraged to take two capsules a day. She is about to embark on a nutrition course. I’m afraid I’ve yet to get my husband on them, although I am working on it!”

“I must tell you what has happened since December 2009 when I started giving my little Norwich Terrier Freddie the Pet & Equine Granules. I bought him as a 7 month puppy from a reputable breeder, but at a year old he showed symptoms of demodectic mange. January 2009 I took him to the University of Cambridge, Queen’s Veterinary Hospital where they confirmed his condition and told me that puppies get this from suckling from their mother who carries the condition. It is all to do with the puppies immune system that perhaps is not strong. But after putting him through 3 lots of complete shaves to enable the vets to treat his skin it was not until September that the vets eventually considered the mites were dead. At that time I was not aware of the Pet & Equine Granules, although I am a long term advocate of Seagreens® for myself. I had tried everything for his immune system, even importing powders from the USA. In December I was ready to order some capsules for myself when I noticed an article about your Pet Granules, and knew that I should try them for Freddie. The results in the last 3 months have been phenomenal! He is bright eyed, lively and eating well, especially celery, which he seems to crave (something to do with the fact he had had toxic washes for so long, and apparently celery contains an anti-toxic agent). I am convinced his immune system has improved since taking the Granules, and congratulate you for producing them. I have recommended them to my local vet.”

“Performance horses can be prone to ulcers due to feeding cereal diets from a young age. A horse’s stomach is small compared to its overall size and weight and feed needs to be no more than 2 – 2.5% of body weight. Nonetheless especially working and performance horses need high energy diets. Feeding modern compound feeds which have an over-abundance of starch can cause digestive disorders like colic, laminitis and tying up. A balanced feed should therefore include protein, essential fatty acids (especially Omegas 3 and 6), vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. In other words, a broad spectrum supplement. Seagreens® provides the complete nutritional spectrum as a natural whole food. It includes all the minerals and approximately 25% polysaccharides found only in seaweed. These slow digesting natural sugars are found to be an effective prebiotic, helping to digest carbohydrate and make a significant contribution to the health of the gut and bowel. In 2010 we conducted a small trial among selected under-performing racehorses between 2 and 6 years old during training. None of the horses had previously had Seagreens® and no other changes were made to their feed intake. After 3 months on 20 grams Seagreens per day in their feed, the trainers noticed increased strength, better temperament and better coat. They described the acceptability and appeal of the Seagreens to the horses as ‘excellent’ and ease of inclusion in the feed as ‘very good’.”

“My Mum has used Seagreens Pet & Equine Granules on her dog which had dry skin patches and they have totally cleared up since she started sprinkling the Granules in the dog’s food.”
