Australian Organic Seaweed Meal
Highly digestable Australian organic seaweed meal for horses and livestock is a readily available form of natural vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
Juliette de Bairacli Levy was the first to recommend seaweed as a nutritional supplement for animals, in the 1930s. Veterinarians of the day mocked her suggestion, but today she has been proved to have been correct. Kelp is now widely used and accepted as a valuable and inexpensive feed supplement for all livestock including horses and dogs.
Kelp iswidely used as an anti-inflammatory, demulcent, emollient, protective against radiation, anti-cancer, anti-tumor, antibiotic, immuno-stimulant, anti-viral and soothing to intestinal mucosa.
The alginates in kelp:
- Assist in the prevention of absorption of toxic metals like mercury, cadmium, plutonium and cesium.
- Protect the body against radiation.
In dogs, it is recommended by Martin Zucker (The Veterinarians’ Guide to Natural Remedies for Dogs”) for cancer, heart disease, mange, old age, stool eating and thyroid gland regulation.
Hilary Page Self (A Modern Horse Herbal) says that kelp is “used extensively for underactive thyroid, and as an excellent source of minerals for the body and used externally for compresses to reduce inflammation and arthritic pain.”
Pat Coleby who has written a number of books on Natural Horse Care , Natural Farming and Natural Pet Care is also a great proponenet of the use of seaweed meal and recommends it as part of her dry lick for horses and livestock.
Seaweed meal is an all natural product harvested from the ocean. It contains Calcium, Sulphur, Zinc, Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron, Iodine, Cobalt, Boron, Molybdenum and many other trace elements. The concentrations of minerals can vary depending on where the kelp was harvested from and the ocean conditions at the time of harvest.
