Sage Pet Foods
Sage is raising the bar in effective pet nutrition. Your dog and/or cat will quickly feel the advantages!

Fermented produce, super foods, sea vegetables, and a proprietary blend of herbs and probiotics naturally all in one, with raw quality hormone free proteins, organic fruits, berries, herbs and health enhancing spices.

The Goal

To provide an ancestral diet, as close to authentic as possible with the added advantage of the latest researched backed nutritional breakthroughs. To address what I believed was most negatively influencing the health of our modern day four legged family members.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and that is what we at Sage strive to provide. Food as Medicine. The latest nutritional strategy designed to fuel all body systems, supporting effective defenses against a world of off gassing modern materials, poor to non-existent nutritional standards for our pets, busy stressed household environments, support against the ravages of our modern world, the increase of disease, a decrease in life expectancy. The writing is on the proverbial wall, but by the grace, and the closest innovation in pet food advancement to address such drastic decline has been the Raw diet.

The research bares out the advantages of a Raw diet; my own personal experience erased any lingering doubts. Personally, I couldn’t get past the frozen vegetables, still it did not deliver the full nutrient potential of quality grown food. My research into my own healing and that of senior family members introduced me to, among other things, the health enhancing properties of fermented foods. The fermenting process broke down cell walls exposing nutrients as well as producing some vitamins and allowing for double extraction of some health supporting herbs. But most importantly it’s easily assimilated in the intestinal tract to quickly and effectively deliver to the body systems.

Next was to supply the highest quality of naturally grown fruits, berries and vegetables, to provide a full spectrum of nutrients. Keep it as local as possible to support our community, and provide the local immunity wisdom of our own produce to best address local health challenges. The hundred mile diet.

Based in natural strategies for health, our food choices, in the five element health theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine target and provide energy to effectively fuel the function of each organ and body system. This makes it very simple, provide optimum easily assimilated nutrients that fuel the body, and the body will strive to achieve as nature intended, Balance and Homeostasis.

The new Science of Epigenetics now shows us that the vitality and health of living cells does not depend on the nucleus or DNA , but the environment of the cell. The environment of the cell is determined by the effective function and nutrition of the membrane of each cell.

Longevity now (according to the research) is understood to be a result of Telemere length and the nutrition that support and effect it. Quantum Sciences are providing many insights and strategies for the challenges of todays world. At Sage, we continue to invest in research and development for the benefit of all our family members, and recognize with sincere and deep appreciation, the many gifts of being a proactive pet parent.

  • Your fermented vegetable and herb supplement sounds interesting to me. I would like to know what fermentation process you use. We already feed raw but just local, grain fed scrap meat, I sometimes add seaweed and garlic but not all the time. I think our boy could use some fermented veggies in his diet.

    • Hi tHi Tania, sorry for the delay, the flu hit and I am in catch up mode.
      We Cultured vegetables is a distinction made to our fermentation process as salt is not used in our process. Normally the natural occurring bacteria is what ferments and breaks down and preserves food in a Saurkraut. We choose bacteria known to support the digestion system to ferment our product. This allows for more controlled processong time, as well as the greatly enhanced value these particular bacteria provide. Also the synergistic activity of some bacteria provide an all important double extract from particular herbs. This provides access to the full compliment of healing properties without the added time and expense of double extraction processes. This is of huge value and cost savings to our customers. Digestion being the foundation of effective function, our formulation of whole foods nutrients made not only, bio available but nutrient dense by this process, is sage support to fuel all organs and body systems, and build effective immunity in the ever increasing deluge of toxic materials in all our everyday lives.

  • Regardless of the kind of products that a farmer wants to produce, a sensible transition strategy needs to be in place to allow a conventional farmer to adapt to a

    new and more effective process in organic farmer in just 3 to

    5 years. if they put rocks in the produce

    section they could put “inorganic” labels on those and that might make sense.

    After all, the USDA has very strict guidelines for agricultural products that wish

    to carry the official USDA organic seal. Honey is also being used in beer and

    other beverage like teas and is readily

    becoming a hugely useful product that puts a lot of

    beekeepers back in the spotlight to produce high quality honey.

    “Milk and Honey, er, Hormones.

  • fantastic issues altogether, you simply won a brand new reader.
    What would you suggest in regards to your put up that you just
    made a few days ago? Any certain?
