An Ancestral Diet

Sage is based on an ancestral diet, fresh food that is seasonal and organic from the earth, and formulated to fuel all body systems. Sage supports the effective functioning of all organs.

Sage Supports

  • digestion and assimilation of nutrients
  • gentle detoxification (pesticides, chemicals, heavy metals and cellular debris through bowel movements to avoid toxic shock)
  • optimal functioning of all internal organs and meridians (zang fu jing luo)

Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine models formulate the seasonal nutrients that address imbalances of yin yang. Sage pet foods contain ingredients which are anti-inflammatory, promote circulation, relieve aches and pains of contractile tissues, and create an internal environment that does not support  phlegm, fungi or unwanted bacteria. Sage also supports the immune system, and strong bones and teeth. Our formula is a definitive model for the effective functioning of the whole body, internal organs and meridians.

Sage signature vegetables mimic a wild prey diet, with specifically formulated cultured (fermented) nutrients. This ancient process of food preserving does far more then preserve.

Fermentation Benefits

Fermenting consumes the natural sugars in the vegetables, which breaks down complex proteins into readily digestible amino acids, and improves the bio-availability of all the nutrients present in the food. Fermentation allows for a much broader array of nutrients, creating new nutrients and providing friendly bacteria and enzymes that aid digestion and fight disease by competing for receptor sites on the mucosal lining of the intestine. Fermentation reduces or eliminates altogether potential toxins in food such as oxalic acid, nitrites, and other potential toxic chemicals found in foods.

Eating fermented live foods is an incredibly healthy practice directly supplying the digestive tract with living cultures essential to breaking down foods and assimilating nutrients.


It hasn’t taken long for our customers to see positive changes in their pets that have health challenges. We are proud of the ever-increasing numbers of excited and grateful customers benefiting from the wisdom in Sage. We are excited by the vitality and longevity potential we have formulated in our foods, humbled and grateful for the loyal support of our customers, and the benefit they and their animal companions are receiving.
