Pet Minerals


Our beloved pets, like us (their humans), need fresh water and minerals to help sustain a long healthy life.  In fact they could benefit from the same mineral supplement that has helped many of us achieve "wetter water", a more alkaline cellular environment, and increased oxygenation within our bodies.

Hydrating at the Cellular Level


We  might not pay much attention to the water content in the vegetables we eat but we really ought to.  When we are born our bodies are made up of almost 78% water. As we age, the water content in our bodies start to decrease.

Boosting Brain and Memory


We can joke around about an occasional bout of forgetfulness. Sometimes we can also find humor in it occurring more frequently as we age.
