BioSuperfood (BSF) is a blue-green algae supplement that contains a full spectrum of concentrated, highly bioavailable nutrients: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, natural antioxidants (including chlorophyll and phycocyanin), and metabolic enzymes. This particular blend contain 30 times more nutritional power per ounce than any other food product. It is truly a “superfood.” While the milligram weight of the nutrients is low, their maximal bioavailability make them far more powerful than they would be in any other form. (In this regard they are similar to Standard Process products, which are also produced from whole foods.)
BSF was developed by Dr. Michael Kiriac, a Russian physician with degrees in Cellular Nutrition and Biotechnology. He performed research for three decades, using isolated vitamins and other supplements, as well as chlorella, spirulina and other algae, in an effort to stop an ongoing epidemic of cancer in chickens. His research also included mink (which are obligate carnivores much like cats), pigs and cows. He weeded out all the ineffective components until he found a concentrate that he named “BioSuperfood.”
What makes BSF (and the pet formulation BioPreparation or BP), different from other popular algae products, like spirulina or chlorella? It contains a synergistic combination of four unique species of blue-green algae. These species have polysaccharide cell walls, rather than the indigestible cellulose cell walls of most other species such as spirulina. BSF and BP are therefore easily digested and absorbed. Their extreme bioavailability makes them particularly valuable for animals with digestive problems. BSF and BP are also quite palatable, and even fussy pets will eat without complaint when either is mixed with their wet food.
NOTE: If your pet eats dry food, please read this article right now; and come back to this article afterward! Your pet’s life depends on it!
Just some of the benefits that have been seen with BSF and BP in animals and humans include:
- Improved digestion and assimilation of nutrients
- Increased appetite and interest in eating new foods
- Weight loss
- Improved immune function
- Resistance to infections
- Supple, healthy skin and glossy fur
- Resolution of inflammatory conditions
- Increased mobility in older animals
- Sounder sleep
- Increased stamina and overall energy
- Rapid healing
- Shorter recovery time after surgery
- Balanced emotions (leading to improved behavior)
- Balanced growth and development
- Enhanced blood cell development
BSF and BP create a synergism with food, and even with many medications. It greatly enhances digestion and assimilation of nutrients, so that your pet gets more nutrition from food. The dose of herbs or drugs your pet may be taking, including herbs, can often be reduced. (But be sure you work with your veterinarian to adjust dosages as your pet’s system gets healthier!)
Case Report: Sable, 5 year old female retriever
“Sable is glowing on the outside: shiny coat, sweet breath (she’d had foul breath even though her teeth were kept clean). She’s improved in her attitude and involvement around the house and yard, more playful! She rarely slows down on her leash-walks any more, and no trouble with stairs! I think the BSF may have helped her turn the corner.”
Case Report: Simeon, 2 year old male cat
“Simeon stopped producing red blood cells and became very anemic. The cause of this life-threatening problem was his weak intestinal cells, which could no longer absorb nutrients and release wastes. A daily dose of BioSuperfood feeds the weak cells and supports their healthy function. As a result, Simeon now efficiently digests and absorbs nutrients from his food and can build rich and vibrant blood!”
Case Report: Murphy, 15 year old male cat
“I thought I may have trouble introducing something new to Murphy! Anything new, he hates! So I’ve been mixing the BioSuperfood with a small amount of canned salmon, and he is eating it very well! I was amazed! I thought for sure he’d turn up his nose but that is not the case. I have told him that it’s good stuff and will help him feel big and strong! So maybe that is helping him too! I’ve noticed he seems more self assured, especially when he’s on the couch with me in the evenings!” (Murphy’s mom also reports that he’s getting along better with Molly the dog.)
