SLIPPERY ELM BARK POWDER
Slippery Elm is a species of elm tree native to eastern North America and has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. It is very safe and non-toxic. The inner bark is dried, powdered and used medicinally to treat digestive upsets of all varieties. It draws out and eliminates toxins from the body and acts as a lubricant in the colon making it effective in treating any inflammation or ulceration of the gastrointestinal tract. Slippery Elm contains vitamins A, C, K and B complex and is high in calcium and magnesium. It is rich in mucilage - a substance that becomes a slick gel when mixed with water, which coats and soothes the mouth, throat, stomach and intestines. It can be thought of as a soothing internal bandage, which creates a protective lining along the intestinal tract, promoting a healthier, more comfortable digestive process. It can alleviate both diarrhea and constipation and also contains antioxidants that help relieve ulcers, gastritis, colitis and other inflammatory bowel conditions. Additionally, it is thought to soothe the bladder lining in cases of inflammation (cystitis). Externally it can be made into a poultice and used as a healing salve when applied to hot spots, rashes, wounds and other skin conditions. Feeding Guidelines: Slippery Elm should be mixed with cold water until the texture is slightly thicker than water. It may slow down the absorption of certain minerals and pharmaceuticals, so it is best given 2 hours before or after other herbs or medications. Daily Recommended Feeding: Cats: ¼ tsp (¼ scoop) Small dogs: ¼ - ½ tsp (¼ - ½ scoop) Medium dogs: ½ - 1 tsp (½ - 1 scoop) Large dogs: 1 tbsp (3 scoops) Humans: 1 tbsp (3 scoops )

GREEN LIPPED MUSSEL POWDER
Green Lipped Mussels are native to the coastal waters of New Zealand where they are farmed. The mussels in the pristine New Zealand waterways feed on a special variety of subarctic plankton which is rich in antioxidants, designed for protection against high levels of ultraviolet radiation. Ozone holes above New Zealand have forced the plankton aquaculture to evolve to protect themselves with powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. The mussels absorb these protective mechanisms when they ingest the plankton and in turn become a storage location of these unique fatty acids. When Green Lipped Mussel powder is extracted from the raw mussel, it remains a whole food and retains the same nutrient profile as the raw mussel. It contains protein, chondroitin and glucosamine sulfate, complex carbohydrates and a unique combination of fatty acids that are not found in any other marine or plant life. The Omega-3 concentration is very high and said to be over 200 times more powerful than the Omega-3s in salmon oil. The combination of ETAs (a type of Omega-3 fatty acid) and glucosamine play an important role in reducing inflammation and pain and improving mobility in dogs affected by arthritis. Powdered extract of Green Lipped Mussels added to food has been proven to show significant improvement in swelling, inflammation and mobility in just six weeks of treatment. It is an effective supplement for the management of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Is has also been successful in managing degenerative joint diseases. The New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel industry operates within some of the strictest quality standards in the world. The mussels and seawater around the farms are tested for biotoxins, bacteria and heavy metals. The Blue Ocean Institute - an International Conservation Organization, has ranked New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels as one of the top eco-friendly seafoods in the world and has recognized New Zealand’s high aquaculture standards. It is safe, free of any known side effects and among the most researched anti-inflammatories known to natural medicine. Daily Recommended Feeding: Dogs: 25 - 30 mg per kg of body weight per day (2.2lbs = 1kg). (Included scoop holds 1000mg) 60lb dog ( 27kg) x 25mg = 675mg
