Fresh Foods Are Vital for Peak Health
Dr. Henning Karstrom, a Swedish expert in raw food therapy says, "Even though you get all 50 known nutrients in your diet (i.e., vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, fatty acids, etc.) your health will still suffer unless you also include large quantities of uncooked and unprocessed foods."
Fresh, live foods are essential to health and well-being.
As Dr. Karstrom has stated above, diets including fresh, live foods are essential to health and well-being. Because they are enzyme active, and have not had their nutritional substances destroyed or altered by heat, fresh foods can be utilized by the body in such a way that is chemically balanced by nature.
These fresh foods affect positive results, giving tissues, bones, and organs the necessary vitamins and minerals to function at their highest levels, as well as healing and strengthening the body as a whole.
Cooked or processed foods, however, are often unbalanced. A good example is the typical dog food diet which is often processed for long term storage requirements. Because of this, many of the vitamins and minerals in these diets have been destroyed or altered. Live enzymes are totally lost.
While these foods may stimulate one body system for the good, they often harm another. Therefore, we have dogs who seem to age prematurely because while their requirements for sustenance are met, their nutrient needs for peak health are not.
Scientific study shows that dietary intake has a direct correlation with health.
Francis M. Pottenger, an American physician, provided an excellent illustration of these facts.While working on a study of the adrenal system of cats, he began to notice that the animals' dietary intake had a direct correlation with their health.
His study group consisted of a colony of 900 cats with which he experimented over a course of 10 years. Pottenger fed the first group pasteurized milk, cod liver oil and cooked meat. He reported that these cats had a high incidence of allergies, sickness, and skeletal deformities which were passed on from generation to generation. As each new litter was born he also noted that there were fewer and fewer kittens per litter, and each had a significant drop in birth weight.
The second group of cats Pottenger worked with was fed only unpasteurized milk and raw meat. The difference between these cats and the first group was remarkable. Healthy, strong, good skeletal structure, and hardly any trace of sickness or allergies characterized this second group, and like the first, they passed these traits on to their offspring.
Beware of diets consisting of 100% cooked or processed foods.
Clearly, we can see from this study the inherent danger of a diet consisting of 100% cooked or processed foods, as well as the incredible benefits that fresh, live, and nutritionally saturated foods can bring.

|Information on the Ingredients in
Springtime Fresh Factors
Yeast Culture: 350 mg/tablet – for live enzyme activity
It is well known that yeasts are one of nature's best vitamin foods. Live enzymes in Fresh Factors' yeast culture are retained by a special process which stabilizes the yeast without destroying its "live" properties. The result is a more complete, more natural, and far more powerful product than is possible with common pasteurized yeast.
Desiccated Liver: 215 mg/tablet – for rich vitamin/mineral content and palatable flavor
Desiccated liver makes Fresh Factors super palatable for dogs. Liver is also extremely nutrient dense and provides many important vitamins and minerals – including organic iron.
Bee Pollen: 215 mg/tablet – for rejuvenating "live food" factors
Pollen contains greater concentrations of living enzymes than any other part of the plant.When pollen experiments were conducted with domestic animals, research found that calves showed significant weight gains when fed 40 gm of pollen in their daily diets. It also showed improved fertility in hens.
The pollen in Fresh Factors is the most nutritional part of the plant. It contains a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, fats, sugars, hormones, and protective antioxidants. Studies have shown that bee pollen can remain alive and viable for 20 years or more. (Click here for more information)
Chondroitin Sulfate: 250 mg/tablet, min. 90% pure – a natural body lubricant
Chondroitin sulfate is an essential element for healthy connective tissue. Muccopolysaccharides, also known as glycosaminoglycans (or GAGs) are produced in the cartilage to keep the joints moist. GAGs are produced by the body to protect joints from wear and tear. One of the causes of long term joint damage is inflammation, which attacks the lubricating nutrients. The major nutrient in this group is chondroitin sulfate, which is a natural body lubricant. Chondroitin sulfate is an essential element for healthy connective tissue and many studies have shown a significant absorption rate of oral chondroitin sulfate supplementation. (Click here for more information).
Kelp: 90 mg/tablet – a powerful mineralizer and natural source of trace elements
Kelp is a type of seaweed that can be eaten raw, but is usually dried, granulated, or ground into powder. Kelp is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements.
Kelp is recommended as a daily supplement in the diet and can be used as a salt substitute. (Click here for more information)
Biotin: 700 mcg/tablet – for supporting healthy skin and coat
Biotin is a well known supporting nutrient for a healthy skin and coat.
Red Star Nutritional Yeast Culture
Springtime has used Red Star® brand nutritional yeast exclusively for over 20 years.
Springtime chooses to use nutritional yeast culture (saccharomyces cerevisiae) made by Red Star®, a complete protein and superfood containing 18 amino acids, B-complex vitamins, dietary fiber, as well as many other nutritional components and minerals. Red Star® Yeast, the largest manufacturerer of yeast products in North America, has over 50 year of extensive experience in the development and production of nutritional yeast.
What It Is
Red Star® nutritional yeast is an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. Red Star® derives its primary grown nutritional yeast from pure strains of saccharomyces cerevisiae grown on mixtures of cane and beet molasses. Red Star's® special growth medium and unique drying process are the secrets to the exceptional performance and flavor of Red Star® nutritional yeast. This process retains live food factors, a unique and valuable quality.
Red Star® nutritional yeast is grown specifically for its nutritive value. In addition to protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, it contains additional functional and beneficial components such as beta-1, 3 glucan, trehalose, mannan and glutathione. Studies have shown that these components have potential health benefits such as improved immune response, reduction of cholesterol, and anti-cancer properties.
Nutritional yeast is also known for its B-complex vitamins. The B-complex vitamins are essential to the wellness of body, mind, and spirit.
What It Is Not
Red Star® nutritional yeast is not made from byproducts of breweries, distilleries or paper mills. Red Star® nutritional yeast is not a genetically modified organism (GMO). Red Star® nutritional yeast contains no added sugars or preservatives.
Candida yeast infection (Candida Albicans) is a body yeast infection. Red Star®'s nutritional yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is not found to be a cause of yeast or candida infections.
Brewers yeast is an inexpensive but bitter byproduct of the brewing industry that has a good nutritional profile, but typically not nearly as high as Red Star® Nutritional Yeast which is grown for maximized food nutritional benefits.
Torula yeast (Pichia jadinii), is a by-product of the paper mill waste streams obtained by growing Pichia jadinii on wood sugars.
Dairy yeast, or whey yeast (Kluyveromyce marxianus), is obtained by growing Kluyveromyce marxianus using cheese whey or whey permeate.
Wine Yeast (Saccharomyces fermentati) is used in fermenting grapes into wine.

Fresh Factors – Not Just For Dogs!
Springtime service is excellent! You order stuff and get it in just a couple of days! I have a young cat named Sam that injured himself somehow and obviously had back, hip, and shoulder pain. He either fell out of a tree or off my second floor porch, I'm thinking. He got a little better, and then got sore again so I ordered Fresh Factors for him - a product I have used in the past with great success! After a couple of days taking Fresh Factors he is like a different cat! Great products, great service!

Hot Spots – "...she is not licking anymore"
Last December, I took my little brown dog, Gracie, to my vet at least three times for a treatment for terrible lick granuloma that she had on her rear leg. She was put onto a protocol of antibiotics and several other drugs to help her heal. Unfortunately, none of them worked.
I decided that going natural was the key to our success. I adjusted her diet cutting out corn, wheat, soy and dairy, and I added Fresh Factors and Omega 3-6-9. Today, almost a year later, she is not licking anymore, and her leg has healed (and she has great skin and a beautiful coat)! I'd love to say that it is a miracle, but I am more convinced that you simply provide a good product that does what it says. Thank you – I look forward to shopping with you for many more years.

"…great improvement in my dog's walking."
Our dog, Elmo, was born with many physical problems, which we have tried to care for. Fresh Factors was recommended to me by a friend for Elmo's joints. After a couple of months, I saw great improvement in my dog's walking. Thanks for a great product.

After - Kona now has soft and silky fur!
Before Fresh Factors and Bee Pollen -
Mange – "Within two weeks, her scabs had healed…"
Dear Springtime, I just wanted to thank you for such wonderful products. We adopted Kona from a shelter at eight weeks of age. After two weeks we noticed she started to lose her fur and developed scabs on her head. She was diagnosed with demodectic mange and a secondary skin infection. She eventually lost almost all of her fur.
Frustrated with a lack of progress in her recovery we took her to a new vet who put her on an anti-parasitic medication. It was that time that our new dog trainer recommended your products as a way to boost her immune system and overall health. I started her on Fresh Factors and Bee Pollen for Dogs every day. Within two weeks her scabs had healed and to our delight, we spotted some fuzz growing on her head. After five weeks her fur had almost completely grown in and she looked like a normal dog again. Even the vet was amazed at how good she looked. He originally told us she might never get better and he had to admit he did not expect her to look so good so soon.
I'm sure her recovery would have taken much longer without your products. Her coat is now so beautiful and we constantly receive compliments from people about it. She also has not had hot spots or any other problems that dogs with "sensitive skin" like her usually have. I recommend your products to everyone. We will be lifelong fans of Springtime! Thank you so much!

"He isn't limping at all anymore."
I have a rescue Schipperke, Bono, who was diagnosed with a mild case of degenerative joint disease in his front right elbow after I got him. And these Fresh Factors have worked wonders for him. He isn't limping at all anymore.

"...whenever anyone says 'hot spots,' I say 'Fresh Factors'..."
I just got my UPS Quantum View notice that my order has been shipped. You guys are fast! My Corgi, Woodrow, is on his last few days of my supply of Fresh Factors and so I appreciate the fast service.
Just gave your info to my neighbors here in Plymouth/Manomet, Massachusetts – their Collie, Duncan has hot spots for the first time this summer. I originally found you many years ago via my daughter, Jenifer, of The Pawsitive Dog in Boston. At the time, my deceased Golden had terrible and recurrent hot spots. She suggested I try Fresh Factors. They helped him immensely. Since then, whenever anyone says "hot spots," I say "Fresh Factors" and pass along your catalog or web address.
Woodrow isn't bothered by hot spots (perhaps because have given him Fresh Factors from the first day I adopted him) but I still give them to him for his coat and general well-being, even more important now that he has joint problems.

Squeaky no longer limps!
No More Limp for Boyfriend's Dog …
My boyfriend has a Maltese mix called Squeaky, who had a badly atrophied rear leg. He told me his vet said a lot of small dogs have a limp like that and it's just something they live with (Huh??!!). Since I've had previous experience with Fresh Factors, I told my boyfriend that I knew how to help his dog.
After about two months feeding Fresh Factors, there was an obvious difference. In the morning, the dog didn't run out of the bedroom holding his leg up every other step. The limp was only obvious at more random steps. After six months, the dog didn't hold the leg up anymore, and the leg was growing in size and strength. After a year, you can't tell the difference in size between the "bad" leg and the good one, and Squeaky had stopped limping.
Thank you for making me look good to the boyfriend! ...and for making such an awesome product.

Fresh Factors – Fast Recovery From Surgery
We started using Fresh Factors when Emmett, our English bulldog mix, had a spiral fracture to his right leg in January 2008. Emmett had already had a total hip replacement and a TPLO on one knee when the accident happened. Texas A&M set Emmett's leg with a steel rod and an external fixture and advised us we were in for at least 14 weeks of grueling attentive cleaning and care to pull our sweet Emmett to mobile status again. After just 10 weeks the doctors at Texas A&M were amazed at Emmet's healing progress and removed the external fixture, FOUR WEEKS EARLY. They had to know what we were feeding Emmett. We explained that the week we brought Emmett home after they had set his leg, we received a catalogue from Springtime and ordered Fresh Factors to give it a try. The results were amazing. Thank you.

"He is happy, bouncy and full of life."
I mentioned with my last order that my vet discovered Boomer, my Lab, had problems in both his shoulders. I doubled his Fresh Factors. He seems to be doing great! He is almost eight years old and just as playful as ever! He is happy, bouncy and full of life. His coat is absolutely beautiful, full and it glistens in the sun. I feel it really makes a difference in his overall health and well being.
