Seaweed is the unrivalled multi-supplement, which delivers a blend of natural nutrients that can be deficient from soils and feed. The healthy and sustainable feed ingredient contains over 60 minerals, and trace elements, vitamins, carbohydrates, amino acids, essential fatty acids, natural bioactive hormones, growth factors and anti-oxidants, making seaweed the ultimate superfood.
The ocean contains a constant reservoir of micronutrients that are absorbed by seaweed and stored within the algae in a protected, colloidal state. This colloidal structure means that > 98% of all the micronutrients are absorbed in the animal allowing them to fulfil their diverse range of functions. The health benefits of seaweed are multi-factorial and only with modern scientific knowledge can the full extent of seaweed be researched.
Shamrock Farm Enterprises uses seaweed as the primary ingredient of all our animal supplements, offering the producer the very best that nature has to offer.
