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.
Shrinking Cyst - 12 Year Old Beagle Mix
I ordered Longevity for my dogs a few months ago. I have three dogs with different issues (ages from three to twelve). My oldest, Sonny, is a 12 yr old Beagle mix with shoulder issues and a growing cyst on one side of his neck. We had the cyst looked at and aspirated by a vet and it was determined to be a fatty deposit. The only problem was that it continued to grow in spite of efforts to control his fat intake. Because of his age, we wanted to avoid having it surgically removed if possible. After about two months on the Longevity, I felt his neck, and surprisingly, the cyst was shrinking! It is now half the size it was before the Longevity. Is it the product? I guess there's no way to be absolutely sure, but I am sure we'll stick with it.
I am happy to report that his fatty cyst is continuing to shrink! I will keep you guys posted and hopefully the next email will be about it being completely gone.

Annabelle, held by Heidi's 13 year old daughter, Helena, feels younger than ever!
"...I have weaned her off of ALL of her medications..."
I just want to say Thanks! My 11-year-old, 8-lb. Toy Rat Terrier, Annabelle, was on Gabapentin, Tramadol and Metacam for a pinched nerve in her back. She would barely walk, even in the house. I found out about Longevity when searching for alternative methods for handling chronic pain.
Now, 2 months later, I have weaned her off of ALL of her medications and give her Longevity twice a day. She is back to her normal self and back to her long walks around the neighborhood. She is running around, playing fetch, and acts younger than ever. Her coat looks beautiful, and her grass allergies are not as severe this year either. I swear your product is a miracle cure. I can't thank you enough for giving our Annabelle her life back.
With best regards,

"...itchy, dry skin starting to heal..."
I recently started all 28 of my racing sled dogs on Springtime's Longevity.
All 28 love it. Even my picky eaters are licking their bowls clean!
After only a few days, I could see an improvement in all their coats. After 3 weeks the difference in appearance is amazing, and the dry, itchy skin is starting to heal.
Thanks for such a great product. You now have another loyal customer.

Roxy's Coat Blossomed!
"...I have weaned her off of ALL of her medications..."
Dear Springtime, I have used both Longevity and C-Complex with great success with my older dogs who have since passed away. I wanted to let you know that I have referred so many of my clients from the dog grooming shop where I work. One client used it with great success: Her dog's coat grew out, was no longer dull and sparse, and it became full and soft. My experience with my dog Roxy (12 years old) made a me a believer that your products really work. She had a thyroid condition, and even though her coat was recovering with the help of medicine, it still didn't quite grow. But when I added your supplements, it made her coat blossom. It made her have the coat she should have had. Also, my dogs have had weepy, goopy eyes, and it made them clear up. I know it helped boost their immune system for sure. It also made them also act a little younger. I just remembered something that blew my mind with your supplement for Roxy. She had a growth on her pad that was almost size of a large gumball, poking on the top of the foot between the toes. The growth almost completely disappeared with being on the supplements! I almost considered surgery, because how much it bothered her, but the surgery was pricey . I am so thankful for what it did for her in all sorts of ways. She was my heart dog.
