Flora4 Greens Plus 100% Raw Organic Ground Sprouted Seeds – Whole Food Supplement and Digestive Aid. Live Probiotics and Enzymes. Nutritional Food Topper for Dogs and Cats.
New! Flora4 Greens Plus with organic sprouted Broccoli and organic Chia!
Carna4 has 2 great dog and cat food toppers: Flora4 Original and Flora4 Greens Plus
Our amazing Flora4 Ground Sprouted Seed mixes simplify the chore of effectively supplementing the live probiotics, plant enzymes, phytonutrients and whole food vitamins & minerals that are lacking in an all-meat diet. Flora4 contains only 100% raw organic sprouted seeds, making any raw diet easy and consistent. Our Flora4 Original formula is a blend of organic sprouted barley seed, flaxseed, and lentils, ground into a fine powder and packaged in daily servings. Our new Flora4 Greens Plus contains organic sprouted broccoli seed, pumpkin, peas, sunflower and chia. Mix formulas to give your pet the nutrition of 10 different seeds, or alternate.
You can use Flora4 whenever your pet needs supplemental enzymes and probiotics for a wide range of issues:
- During and after treatment with antibiotics re-seed the gut
- To correct intermittent diarrhea, constipation, gas and soft stools
- To aid digestion when transitioning from one diet to another for the first time.
- For immune support (sprouted Broccoli is great for this!)
- Relieve itchy skin, dry coat, yeasty ears
- Get up cat hairballs
- No Synthetic Ingredients
You can add Flora4 to every meal to supply all your animal’s non-meat nutritional requirements. Or if you already mix foods like tripe, green leafy & root vegetables into your animal’s raw diet, try using Flora4 every couple of days to “fill in the gaps”. That way, you can be sure that you’re not missing any essential vitamins & minerals with your homemade recipes.
Your raw-fed cat can also benefit from the intense nutrition in Flora4. Be sure to add healthy sources of taurine such as organ meat – pork liver and duck liver are two excellent examples.
Flora4 is extremely versatile. It can be sprinkled into raw, home-cooked or commercial kibble to boost nutrition and complete the diet or raise the nutrition. If your main pet food contains vitamin/mineral additives, then you should consider supplementing the diet with doses of Flora4 every day or two, to make sure your pet is getting really bio-available nutrients from food, not just synthetics. Our testing has shown that dogs and cats love the mix of flavors from meat + our sprouted seed blend. Flora4 gives Raw feeders the convenient whole food supplement they’ve been waiting for — no need to use bottled synthetic products again!
Flora4 contains guaranteed levels of live probiotics (18 billion cfu/kg) and enzymes (1 million U/kg); effective doses of 26 essential vitamins & minerals; and high levels of Omega 6 & 3 fatty acids – all from raw food – that combine to provide a variety of health benefits for dogs and cats.
Flora4 Original ingredients: 100% raw ground USDA organic sprouted barley, flax, green and red lentil seeds. Flora4 Greens Plus ingredients: 100% raw ground USDA organic sprouted broccoli, pea, sunflower, chia and pumpkin seeds.
Available in 18 oz ( 510 g) reclosable bags and individual single-serve 1.5 oz ( 43 g) packets
Your pet already eats well….so why supplement with Flora4?
Our Flora4 Sprouted Seed Mix delivers total nutrition that ONLY COMES FROM WHOLE PLANT FOOD. Sprouting unlocks and activates massive amounts of vitamins, minerals, probiotics and enzymes stored in nature’s original building blocks. Once sprouted, seeds become highly digestible sources of intense nutrition which is easily absorbed by the body. This is far more effective than relying on synthetic vitamins & minerals which do not work in harmony with natural body metabolism.
When your dog or cat gets its nutrients from actual food, it also absorbs thousands of micro-nutrients that surround each vitamin or probiotic, working synergistically with the body to help it absorb and use the vitamins. These micro-nutrients are only available within the natural structure of a whole food and are left behind when a synthetic vitamin is chemically extracted. When added to conventional pet food, Flora4 can provide your pet the missing nutrition just as nature intended.
Flora4 perfectly supplements raw and home cooked diets with all the necessary vitamins, minerals, live probiotics and enzymes which may be insufficient in a pure meat diet. Or Flora4 can be added to any kibble to supply highly bio-available, food-based nutrients for vibrant health.
The plant-based enzymes in Flora4 are biologically active in a broad pH range, which means they support your pet’s healthy gut flora in a larger portion of its digestive tract, where pH levels can vary considerably.
Flora4 also adds soluble fiber to your dog’s diet, keeping intestines functioning smoothly and also helping keep your dog feeling full longer. Perfect for dogs eating a raw diet without much volume.
Finally, as a probiotic supplement, Flora4 is uniquely effective. Most commercial probiotics are created by isolating individual strains of microorganisms, and artificially stimulating their reproduction in a laboratory environment. In the final product, the selected probiotics have been separated from the intrinsic supporting microbes that were present in the original natural state and critical to the survival of the selected strain. In isolation, the absorption and use of the probiotic by the body will be greatly reduced. In contrast, when a native probiotic found in a raw food like Flora4 is ingested while still in its natural host environment, it remains supported by the full range of original microorganisms that allow it to function. It will stay healthy, viable and be much more bio-available for absorption within the animal’s intestine. Now that’s something to toot about!
Try Flora4 as a handy stool corrector for those times when your pet gets a bout of diarrhea. The high quality fiber from the sprouted seeds helps form a good stool, while the massive doses of natural probiotics and enzymes will help to correct the digestion issues in a short period of time. Usually, a couple of days’ treatment with each meal is all you need.
Our customers continue to tell us about their experiences with Flora4 – helping to manage a variety of issues from yeast problems to skin & coat conditions to allergy symptoms. The concentrated, bio-available nutrients, fatty acids, antioxidants, probiotics and enzymes can give Flora4 an important role in supporting your pet’s immune system and keeping him healthy.
