How BioPreparation Works

As per Hippocrate's advice: "let thy food be thy medicine", good foods have the potential to nourish and heal. For this healing to be a reality, the nutrients in our food must be absorbed within our cells in sufficient quantities. With poor food choices, aging, and other metabolic deficiencies, this absorption becomes quite inefficient and cellular disease takes over. Due to its extraordinary broad nutrient content and bioavailability, BioPreparation's nourishing potential is much higher than that of ordinary foods and other supplements. In addition this formula has a dramatic effect on the brain! Specifically the hypothalamus and pineal glands that are responsible for the regulation of all physiological metabolisms. This includes the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, the central nervous system, the lymphatic system, the cardiovascular system and the digestive system. This is where all healing and systemic maintenance and repair begins and this is why BioPreparation can have such a powerful effect on your pet's health!

BioPreparation Benefits

  • Contains Over 4,000 Enzymes

    Cooked food (canned and dry kibble) lacks enzymes because heat kills live enzymes. Your animals need enzymes daily to digest foods. Feeding your pet processed foods every day leads to depletion of live enzymes. Without enzymes pets age faster and are plagued with degenerative diseases such as arthritis, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, etc.

  • Formulated by Nature

    To get required nutrients, animals in the wild instinctively consume algae when they drink from natural water sources (e.g. pond or stream). Our domesticated pets, fed processed foods and tap water, do not get algae and therefore are deficient in many nutrients like: protein, enzymes, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Feeding BP to our animal companions provides them the daily essential nutrients they need in the natural form and dosage that nature intended.

  • BioPreparation is a Whole Food Supplement

    BioPreparation is a whole food supplement that is safe, naturally occurring, balanced and complete with thousands of natural enzymes in a form easily assimilated by your animal's body unlike most isolated or synthetic compounds found in other supplements. BioPreparation is not, and far from, a conglomeration of separate, isolated vitamins and minerals or extracted and concentrated ingredients bound together and compressed with fillers into a pill.

  • Superior Immune System Support

    Poor immune system, degenerative conditions and diseases, and a shorter life span are all indications of sub-standard nutritional diets (dry kibbles and canned food). BP helps give back to your pets the health nature intended them to have.

  • The microalgae in BioPreparation formulas are nurtured and harvested in a controlled hydroponic environment, protected from pollutants and guaranteed free of herbicides and pesticides. They are further blended, encapsulated and bottled under strict quality control. The nutrients are protected with advanced freeze-drying technology that preserves 100% of the nutrients for many years.

  • The formulas are Kosher and Vegan.

BioPreparation Details

Available in a container with 60 capsules.

BioPreparation is a special blend of microalgae, the oldest form of food on the planet. Fossils exist of cyanobacteria blue-green algae that are over 3.5 billion years old. There are over 70,000 algae species or types of algae in the world. Some are magnificent whole foods such as spirulina and dunaliella as contained in BioPreparation.

There are thousands of known nutrients in BioPreparation, and many unknown
BioPreparation is a blend of four whole microalgae (whole as in whole food), each containing thousands of nutrients that are seen under the microscope or detected with the latest laboratory equipment. As with some fruits and vegetables, in BioPreparation's microalgae, there are hundreds and possibly thousands more phytonutrients that are too small to be seen with their current microscopes and technologies, but that will be identified in the years to come. For example a few decades ago they identified lycopene in tomatoes even though it had been present in tomatoes for thousands of years.

Nutrient Profile

    • Complete Protein Makeup

The algae in these blends have minimal cellulose in their cell walls, being composed of soft mucopolysaccharides. Their proteins are 85% to 95% digestible, far more than meat and fish (15-25%), soybeans (35%), dried milk (35%), peanuts (25%), eggs (12%), grains (8-14%) or whole milk (3%). This high digestibility rate is especially important for animals and people suffering from intestinal malabsorption problems which is very common nowadays. The elderly have even more difficulty digesting complex proteins, and many are on restricted diets.

    • Amino Acids

Contains 20 amino acids; all eight to ten essential and 12 non-essential amino acids in high availability or non limiting form.

    • A Complete Range of Naturally Occurring Vitamins

These formulas contain the array of vitamins that most living beings need to carry on metabolic processes. Not only do they contain all vitamins, including a full Vitamin B Complex, vitamins A, D, K, E & C, BUT also contain all co-dependent nutrients for these vitamins to be functional and active for proper assimilation.

    • Minerals

There are more then 100 dietary minerals and trace elements detected in each of these formulas. But when using specific element analysis, some amount of all known dietary minerals can be detected! Minerals are constituents of the bones, teeth, soft tissue, muscle, blood, and nerve cells. They are vital to overall mental and physical well-being. Minerals act as catalysts for many biological reactions within the body, including, muscle response, the transmission of messages through the nervous system, and the utilization of nutrients in food.

    • Trace Elements

Contain some amount of all known trace elements occurring in a most animal/human friendly form, that is naturally occurring from the plant kingdom. In biochemistry, a trace element is a chemical element that is needed in minute quantities for the proper growth, development, and physiology of the organism. For this reason, in biochemistry they are also called micro nutrients.

    • Enzymes

These formulas contain thousands of enzymes! We believe that no other food or combination of foods contains so many naturally occurring enzymes. Some of these enzymes are critically important for health, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD is an iron-containing enzyme that supports important body-cell processes and also protects the cells from free radicals. Enzymes are specialized protein molecules facilitating most of the body's metabolic processes - such as, supplying energy, digesting foods, purifying your blood, ridding the body of waste products etc.

    • Fatty Acids

Contain Omega 3, 6, 9, GLA and several more including some yet undocumented or undiscovered. Most of us think of fatty acids as oils coming from fish or seeds. You will be happy to learn that these formulas are a rich source and especially high in GLA, which is a critical nutrient that is universally lacking in the American diet.

    • Chlorophyll

Spirulina in these formulas is one of the richest sources of chlorophyll with a perfect balance of magnesium. All plants, algae, and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) which photosynthesize, contain chlorophyll usually with the proper balance levels of magnesium required for photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is sometimes called "green blood" because of its similarity to the hemoglobin molecule found in human blood cells. In fact, both are constructed of almost identical molecular structure called pyrrole rings, and both substances are chemically known as "porphyrin pigments" by scientists. In addition, there's nothing more supportive to cleansing than chlorophyll. And people who follow Western diets (high in processed foods and animal foods) are in desperate need of cleansing.

    • Polysaccharides

The algae found in these formulas have unique cell wall made of complex polysaccharides, which have been shown to stimulate interferon production and exhibit strong anti-tumor activity in a series of studies conducted over the last several decades.

    • Phytonutrients

These formulas with their mix of blue-green, brown and red microalgae contain thousands of phytochemicals and colorful pigments making up the entire color spectrum found in nature from blue to green and red. We know today that the principal nutrients for prevention of cancers are found in colorful fruits and vegetables (American Cancer Society). Those nutrients are the mixed of phytonutrients such as antioxidants, carotenoids, chlorophils and other compounds found in those fruits and vegetables and especially concentrated in BioPreparation and BioSuperfood formulas.

    • Antioxidants

Contain extraordinary antioxidant compounds and especially those like alpha-carotene and beta-carotene known as "pro-pro vitamin A" for their capacity to not only traverse cell membrane but to span across the cell membrane. An antioxidant is a molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals, which start chain reactions that damage cells. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions by being oxidized themselves.

    • Carotenoids

These formulas contain an extraordinary number of yellow/orange pigments called carotenoids. Carotenoids are organic pigments that are naturally occurring in plants and some other photosynthetic organisms like algae, some types of fungus and some bacteria. The extraordinary amounts of carotenoids and several lesser pigments such as phycoerythrin, tetrapyrrole, and phytonadione found in these algae are not just the "color" of living organisms, but are used to carry on metabolic processes throughout the body. Without them, enzymatic reactions would be reduced until cellular disintegration occurred.

Spirulina for its large protein and mineral values

These formulas contain two species of Spirulina; Spirulina Platensis and Spirulina Pacifica.  Spirulinas are blue green micro-algae, unseen to the naked eye, usually grown in warm and brackish water. It contains between 60 to 70% complete and highly digestible proteins. Its protein makeup contains 18 to 22 amino acids, including all the 8 essential amino acids. Spirulina is a rich source of vitamins A, B, E, H, and of thousands of enzymes, dozens of minerals and trace elements, and chlorophyll.

It is also one of the best source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) – an essential fatty acid necessary for tissue growth and regeneration. Due to its soft cell wall all of Spirulina’s nutrients are easily assimilated.


Dunaliella Salina for its extraordinary mix of carotenoids

Dunaliella Salina is a single celled, salt-water micro-algae that under appropriate growth conditions can accumulate large amounts of beta-carotene and other carotenoids. Dunaliella contains other carotenoids such as alpha carotene and xanthophylls like zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin and lutein. It also accumulates very high concentrations of glycerol.

High concentrations of beta-carotene and glycerol offer Dunaliella protection from the saline conditions and osmotic pressure of the environment where it lives. Natural mixed carotenoids found in Dunaliella salina are among nature's best antioxidants.


Haematococcus Pluvialis for its high content in astaxanthin

Haematococcus Pluvialis is the world's highest source of astaxanthin, a unique natural carotenoid pigment and an extremely powerful biological antioxidant. A growing body of scientific literature shows that natural astaxanthin surpasses by far the antioxidant benefits of vitamin C and vitamin E.

Astaxanthin holds superior antioxidant activity and has an ability to support and maintain natural inflammatory response. Additionally, scientific research has proven that astaxanthin is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and the central nervous system better than many other antioxidants.

 

Other Ingredients: Vegetarian Gelatin, Water and Glycerin. Please notice that there are none of the usual synthetic additives found in most other capsules and tablets.

These usage guidelines have been composed based on information gathered from years of empirical research conducted or managed by Dr. Michael Kiriac in the U.S.S.R. from the years 1973 to 1996, from use and research conducted in Canada since 1996, and more recently from input of practitioners and customers both in Canada and in the U.S.A. about their usage of BioPreparation with animals.

Holistic Usage

If one wants to use BP as per Hippocrates’ advice “Let thy food be thy medicine”, then one must let go the palliative mindset (a specific remedy for a specific symptom) in favor of the holistic approach (remedy aimed at the whole of health and the root cause of the symptom). Transitioning from our palliative training to the holistic one involves faith, trust, wisdom and experience. Faith and trust are innate while wisdom and experience are acquired. The holistic approach in the context of BP means that you are going to nourish the body a certain quantity of BP in order to derive whole body benefits which include energy, growth, repair, cleansing, protection and regeneration or cell splitting.

With food “no one food or quantity of a food fits all”, and as per any other diet or nutritional program, flexibility and respect of individual biochemistry is recommended. In general, for health maintenance and prevention, one can feed an average size pet anywhere from a pinch up to 3 capsules per day (of a single formula or a mix of formulas) depending on the animal specie, its size and several factors and on each animal case by case:

  • selected nutritional support program objectives and goals – i.e. nutrition, remedial, performance

  • animal unique biochemistry, adaptation and sensitivity

  • other program underway (medication, supplements, etc)

  • may vary based on need (or not) for speed

  • multiple parallel objectives

For more advanced nutraceutic use, you may contact us for suggestions.

Selection of formula(s) and quantity of capsules/amount per day

The first thing to consider when using BP is that “you have to eat some to derive benefits”. BP is a micro food with mega nutrients which delivers more or less nutritional results and benefits base on the quantity consumed. There are two BP formulas, and each one contains the four algae and their thousands of nutrients occurring in different proportion or distribution. Due to these differences, each formula results in nutraceutical value and beneficial effects.

General Suggestions

  • Even when there is more than one Formula to give, as much as possible, feed no more then one capsule at a time, scheduled every few hours starting first thing in the morning until reaching the total capsules for the day. For larger animals like a horse or cow, it is OK to give two capsules at one time.

  • When 2 formulas are suggested, alternate each formula. When the total capsules for one formula are finished, continue with the remaining capsules for the second formula.

  • Though not required, you may feed capsules alongside meals or snacks.

  • Water is important for animals eating BP. Use filtered water without chloride. It is important to ensure the animal drinks plenty of water as to avoid dehydration. In some instances, to accomplish this, one can sprinkle a small amount of sea salt on their food to make them thirsty or add lots of water to their food and monitor their water intake.

  • Avoid commercial dry foods; look for fresh wet and raw real meat.

  • For pets, feed the animal at least 50% of raw foods

  • Feed the animal with organic food as much as possible

  • Where appropriate, exercise the animal frequently.

  • Allow the animal to be in the sun daily 30 to 60 minutes - early morning and late afternoon.

  • Modifications to program due to reactions are normal and can be different for every animal and condition.

  • Mix BP powder well with food/feed or feed directly, but make certain it is ingested.

  • For high performance goals, degenerative conditions, injuries and other health issues: Augment the number of capsules as well as introduce F3+ when required. A protocol for these goals, objectives and conditions can be obtained from your professional that introduced BP.

Durations of Use

Duration of use may vary depending on specifics and conditions, frailty or other issues with each animal. Generally, degenerative conditions that took years to settle in will require between 3 to 6 months of the initial program suggested. Following the initial program, a lifetime maintenance program of at least a pinch (for very small) to 1 capsule of F2+ per day will be recommended. Often with nutritional supplements, one may observe early results or no results, and decide to stop the program prior to achieving the desired results. It is recommended to follow through with the program until the goals are achieved.

Adaptation Mode

Because of the nutraceutical benefits of the products, as with any dietary changes, it is suggested to start giving the product gradually to allow nutritional changes to take place gradually within the body and be well received by the animal. Select from the Adaptation Modes below the appropriate mode based on the health condition and/or desired goal for the animal.

Start with one dose per day of each suggested formula; increase the dose for each suggested formula every two (2) to three (3) days until you reach the suggested total dosage per day.

Slow - Start giving 1 dose per day of each suggested formula; increase the dose of each formula suggested every four (4) to six (6) days until you reach the suggested total dosage per day.

Caution

With condition of high blood pressure, brain injury, thyroid condition, pregnancy, fragile intestine and any other serious or fragile health condition, it is important to start the program in Slow mode.

Combining

BP is micro-food and will combine well with other vitamins, herbs, greenfood and diets. There are no known contra-indication with drugs.

Suggestion of Usage by Species

Dog
Maintenance: 1/3 to 1 capsules of F2+ between 1 to 3 times per day.
Advanced: 1/3 to 1 capsules of F3+ between 1 to 3 times per day.

Cat
Maintenance: 1/3 to 1 capsules of F2+ between 1 to 2 times per day.
Advanced: 1/3 to 1 capsules of F3+ between 1 to 3 times per day.

Cow and beef
Maintenance: 1 capsule of F2+ two to three times per day.
Advanced: 1 capsule of F3+ one to two times per day.
Note: Dairy cows protein feed will need to be reduced by ~1.25 lb gradually over the first four weeks.

Horse and Pony
Adaptation: 1 capsule each of F2+ and F3+ twice per day for two weeks.
Maintenance: 1 to 2 capsules of F2+ twice per day.

Goat and Sheep
Maintenance: 2 capsules of F2+ per day - one AM and one PM

Poultry
Maintenance: 3-4 capsules F2+ per 1.5 kg of feed. First mix well 2 capsules with two handfuls of feed, then mix well the resulting two handfuls feed with ¼ of the remaining feed, and then mix well this resulting feed with the balance of the feed.
Notes: A 20% productivity increased was observed in the poultry at the Moldavian research center, with better essential amino acids, albumin and fat content, reduction of diseases and mortality while not using antibiotics, resulting in healthier and better tasting meat. BP helps with the essential assimilation of calcium so important for the bone mass and the egg shell, while allowing for larger eggs.

Ferret, Mink, Rabbitt
Maintenance: 1/3 capsules of F2+ three to four times per day

Hamster
Maintenance: a pinch to 1/3 capsules of F2+ twice per day - one AM and one PM

Bird (small birds)
Maintenance: 1 capsule F2+ mixed to one day feed for 10 small birds
Note: Mix well with feed, to avoid loss of product.

Fish (small pet fishes)
Maintenance: a pinch to 1/2 capsule F2+ in water to feed up to 50 small fishes per day.

Notes
After a day or two, animals will get used to the smell and taste of BP and instinctively will look for the algae powder in their food.

Why is this one of your favorite products?

This is a favorite product of ours for two reasons. The first is that both BioPreparation and BioSuperfood adhere to the basic principle that pure, natural, whole food nutrition is the best way to attain wellness and longevity and this directly correlates with our beliefs. The second is that we have witnessed first hand the powerful, healing effects these bio-algae concentrates can have on people and animals.

What is the difference between these formulas and the many synthetic nutritional formulas found on the market today?

BioPreparation and BioSuperfood are composed of whole, organic water plants that have thousands of both discovered and undiscovered nutrients. These nutrients are fully assimilated by the body without causing toxicity or digestive burden. Often, only a fraction of the content of "health food vitamins" are actually absorbed by the body. Additionally, man-made supplements only contain what the formulators choose to include and this can lead to deficiencies, or worse yet toxicity issues, especially when mixing with other supplements.

How are these formulas different from other brands of algae?

BioPreparation and BioSuperfood contain the micro-algae Spirulina Pacifica, Spirulina Platensis, Dunaliella and Haematoccocus for its high concentration of the carotenoid Astaxanthin. You can be assured that these bio-algae concentrates never contain any toxic or contaminated algae since they are grown in controlled bioreactors and not in the wild. Everything from the selection of light, heat, water and nutrients is done under the supervision of Dr Kiriac.

From over 20 years of research, the formulator, Dr. Michael Kiriac, has learned that specific light, heat and water conditions are necessary to maximize the nutrients of algae. The concentration of nutrients in these formulas far exceeds that of any other single or mixed algae. This level of technology and purity is the principal reason why these formulas are a breed apart in the algae market. Dr Kiriac's algae are more "nutraceutical" than any other algae and have a much greater potential to awaken the body's own natural ability to heal.

Are the BioPreparation and BioSuperfood Formulas considered a raw food?

Yes, they contain 100% raw ingredients in their natural, unrefined state.

How much BioPreparation should be consumed each day?

See the Instructions Tab for detailed guidelines. This is dependent on needs, goals and budget. In my case I give my cat 1/4 BioPreparation F2 capsule mixed in with each meal and my dogs (weighing between 35 and 50 lbs) get one F2 capsule mixed in with each meal. They are all healthy so my supplementation goal is for anti-aging and disease prevention.

How much BioSuperfood should be consumed each day?

For most people, we recommend starting with one or two capsules per day, increasing to six per day. Follow the directions on the bottle, work your way up at your own pace and also trust your intuition. No two people are alike. For example I personally take 6 BioSuperfood capsules each day. I take three F3 and three F2 spread evenly throughout the day. So it is very much dependent on your personal needs, goals and budget. My goal is antioxidant protection for anti-aging and disease prevention. I include the F3 in my diet for the extra antioxidant protection. However, you could just as easily take six f2 per day or just one or two for that matter. There are some people I know who suffer from severe imbalances, acidosis and/or Candidiasis. They can feel effects such as dehydration and other symptoms when taking BioSuperfood. They may have to start with only 1/4 capsule at a time for days or weeks until their body begins to adapt and rebalance.

What is the difference between BioPreparation and BioSuperfood?

The BioSuperfood formulas are specifically designed for humans, though as with other earthly foods, our animal companions can also consume them. The BioSuperfood formulas have the same nutritional makeup as the BioPreparation formulas, except that they are freeze dried at a less cold temperature in order to achieve a slightly coarser powder. This was done to adjust uptake assimilation for humans as we have longer digestive tracks, unlike dogs and cats that have very short digestive tracks.

The BioPreparation formulas were originally designed for animals, though as with other earthly foods, we humans can also consume them. BioPreparation has the same nutritional makeup as BioSuperfood, except that is freeze dried at a colder temperature in order to achieve a slightly finer powder. This was done to increase uptake assimilation for the shorter digestive tracks of animals like dogs and cats.

What is the difference between formulas F1, F2 and F3?

The BioSuperfood nutritional formulas F1, F2, F3, and BioPreparation formulas F2+ and F3+ were developed in order to accommodate individual biochemistry. No two people or animals are alike. For example, a developing child has a different health state and different resilience, immunity and nutritional needs than; an adult, an athlete, a vegan, or someone with a severe degenerative condition.

All of the formulas contain some amount of the green algae Spirulina Pacifica, Spirulina Platensis, and of the red algae Dunaliella and Haematoccocus Pluvialis. Together these algae provide thousands of nutrients with proportioned nutritional and protectional values. The green algae contain a broad spectrum of proteins, minerals and chlorophyll that have great nutritional value, while the red algae contain a large amount of mixed carotenoids / antioxidants, phytonutrients and fatty acids that have much higher protectional values and a greater ability to cross the brain barrier and thereby nourish and protect the hypothalamus-pituitary axis.

Due to an increasingly larger amount of red algae from F1 to F2 to F3, the formulas increase in brain reaching nutritional and protectional efficiencies. This is due to the fact that red algae contain more carotenoids and fatty acids that can efficiently cross the blood brain barrier and the blood iris barrier.

When will I notice a difference after using these formulas?

The beneficial effects of consuming BioPreparation or BioSuperfood can be experienced within hours of consumption, while the more subtle benefits work to provide long-term protection and well-being. Some people may experience noticeable changes within a few weeks of use - others may notice differences right away or, conversely, notice no effect whatsoever.

While the benefits of consuming these formulas may not always be tangible, there is no doubt that their nutrients are working at the cellular level throughout your, or your pet's, entire body. As with any other health pursuit, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly in order to reap more of the full, long-term benefits of these micro-algae formulas.

I experienced tiredness and a headache after taking one of these formulas. Why is that?

It is normal when first starting to take one of these formulas that some people, or animals, may experience symptoms of detoxification, which may include a low grade headache and tiredness. These symptoms are the body's way of releasing toxins. These micro-algae formulas contain an abundant amount of chlorophyll which helps to rid the body of toxins. It is important to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help flush out any toxins and prevent symptoms of detoxification.

When is the best time to take this supplement?

For maximum results, we recommend that you take one capsule of BioSuperood at a time starting first thing in the morning and continue taking one capsule at 3 to 6 regular intervals throughout the day preferably on an empty stomach before meals. For your pet you may provide BioPreparation in a small amount of almond butter, yogurt or soft food and/or mix in with meals.

Some algae can contain toxic levels of mercury. How do you know these formulas don't?

Both BioPreparation and BioSuperfood are certified by Health Canada for their purity and exact content. Health Canada imposes that each lot is analyzed for its nutrient content and verified for heavy metals and other pollutants.

There are over 25,000 different species of algae in the world. Most are found growing in the wild and some beneficial to all living creatures are cultivated by man for consumption; unfortunately many are toxic to some degree due to their habitats or pollutants.

In order to avoid airborne pollution including sun ultra violet damage, the sensitive algae in these micro-algae supplements are grown in covered facilities called bioreactors where temperature, turbulence and light can be controlled and enhanced. And to further avoid toxicities from oceans, lakes, or open lagoons, pure and mineral rich water is obtained from geysers stemming from two thousand feet below a Siberian volcanic peninsula. The algae are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and without antibiotics, growth hormones or any additives.

I have an Italian Greyhound who started having seizures at about age 5 (she was adopted from rescue at 3 years of age.) Though just a few seizures each year at most, but they were pretty significant in strength when they happened. They seem to come on in times of extreme stress or if there was a long stretch of time between meals. Lili has been on a raw diet since I adopted her (Aunt Jeni's Homemade).

At about age 13, she started having what I call "the wobbles". I'm guessing now these were probably mini-seizures, quite possibly related to hypoglycemia. These happened much more frequently than the larger seizures she was having a few times per year. I continued her raw diet, and added Bio Preparation F2, as well as omega 3 fish oil.

She is now 17.5 years YOUNG and has not had any seizure or "wobbles" since she started taking BioPreparation. She has a spring in her step and is a really happy, healthy girl.

Whenever I hear of any health challenge one of my friend's is having with their pet, I recommend BioPreparation.

I'm such a huge fan of this product that I take it too.

I added Bio Prep to my Golden's diet along with Seaweed Calcium, Digestive Enzymes & Probiotics, Repair and Strengthen. Since 8 months of age , 11 vets./ holistic intergr. vets. Their care with some help in her conditions but, not much. We found Phil and Maria!! Last fall is when we started on these products. Our Golden had immune problems, leaky gut, over abundance of yeast (as in bathing and drying her with a hair dryer every 2 ) hormone, her fur was very thin with sores and yeast all over her. With in 4 weeks of using the products that Phil and Maria choose for us she was getting better. AMAZING PRODUCTS! Both Phil and Maria are knowledgeable and take the time to talk with you! Can not say enough good things about them!! Thank you both so very much!! Our 4 yr young Golden is healthy and happy now! Glad we found you !

My vet said my dog was in the beginning stages of renal failure. After a lot of research I started him on this supplement and his last blood test showed his values have improved quite a bit. My vet was very impressed and said to keep on doing whatever I've been doing because it's working. Very happy I found this product.

I am so pleased with the improvement in my cat. Since I started her on Biopreparation her appetite is better and her coat has come back in thicker than it has been in quite a while. After all the products I have tried this one is just amazing.

I've ordered BioPreparation Forte Formula F3 for our dog who is a mix, Border Collie/Labrador. She is going on 10 and she has Lipomas, one of them was inoperable due to it being infiltrated in her chest/shoulder muscle. Ive done a lot of research on Lipoma and it appears to be very common with older retrievers. Ive changed her diet to a high quality dog food and started her on the BioPreparation, twice a day. Her Lipomas are slowly shrinking and I think its because of this product. She also appears to have much more energy since she is on this formula and her has become very soft and shiny. I will keep her on this formula probably indefinitely since it seems to do her a whole lot of good.

My dog had been looking older and a little lethargic for a while now. My vet said it was just age setting in, but I didn't want to believe that. After talking with the folks at this wonderful company, they recommended I give this product a try. A couple of weeks later and my baby is looking healthier than he has in years. His coat and eyes just look so much brighter. I can't believe the difference. I recommend this product to all my friends now.

After only a couple of days I noticed a difference in my dog. I said "aren't you feeling good today" because she was smiling and tail wagging, and then I remembered I started using this new supplement. She really has a bounce in her step. I am very happy I decided to try this product!

I called one day and spoke with Maria and told her I was concerned because my dog's eyes were looking a little dull and cloudy and I was concerned about cataracts. She explained to me about all the special nutrients that support eye health and how they can cross the retinal barrier. I am back to buy more and I have to say my dog's eyes are looking brighter and she also looks like she feels a whole lot better. I think the natural ingredients in this product really make a difference.
