Sustenance Herbs, dedicated to unsurpassed quality

sustenanceOver 13 years ago, Joyce Belcher decided it was high time to turn her passion for holistic health into a business.

Sustenance herbsShe expanded her studies to focus on herbs, and launched Herbs for Life, Inc. in 2008 and worked with several holistic and integrative veterinarians, establishing custom formulas creating a unique line of organic pet supplements as well as a line of herbal medicinals, Joyce’s new company quickly began to thrive…and so did her customers

From the start, Herbs for Life, Inc has been dedicated to unsurpassed quality.

Each one of their products is made using 100% non-GMO, certified organic and/or wild harvested ingredients, and no chemicals are added or used, ever, in the manufacturing process.

The company prides themselves on safety and efficacy and plans to continue growing without losing focus of her mission.

Sustenance 3“Our mission and passion is and has always been to help pets get healthy and stay healthy as nature intended,” she says. Whether an animal needs a daily supplement to balance their immune system or a botanical medicinal to address a more serious issue.

Her Detox Liver Cleanse, for instance, has been a game changer for the health of many animals.

It works to remove heavy metals, restore normal healthy function of the eliminatory organs (Liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, blood and neurological systems) and, like all her products, contains NO inactive ingredients.

Joyce felt the name of her supplement line, Pet Wellness Blends, didn’t fully encompass the values she so strongly upholds.

Sustenance 2So what did she do?

She rebranded!

This product line can now be found under the name “Sustenance Herbs”, a title that better reflects its ability to support and maintain health.

“Sustenance refers to something that is consumed that sustains life or health,” says Joyce. “And the happiness that pet owners have when their dog, cat or horse is healthy, happy and feeling great is what keeps me going!”

Forage First GS: Support for optimal gastric health

James Lattimer Ph.D, PAS

Forage 1Gastric ulcers affect an estimated 50 to 90 percent of all performance and racehorses. 

Common symptoms include decreased appetite, colic, behavioral changes, weight loss and reduced performance.

This man-made condition is a product of stress, reduced forage intake, meal feeding and/or high starch diets.

But, through dietary modifications, horse owners can decrease the risk of ulcers in their horses.

Most dietary interventions help buffer stomach contents and include continual access to pasture, providing a free-choice forage, replacing grass hay with alfalfa, substituting starch with fat, and minimizing stress.

Forage 2Unfortunately, even when owners do things correctly their horses can still suffer from gastric discomfort.

This is why we at ADM Animal Nutrition developed Forage First® GS, a unique supplement with a triple action formula designed specifically to help support a healthy stomach.

The proprietary mineral complex provides marine derived calcium and magnesium in a unique honeycomb structure which acts as a strong buffer, helping neutralize gastric acid.

Lecithin, a natural phospholipid, can interact with the gastric mucosa, providing an additional layer of protection for the stomach lining.

Pectin, a water-soluble fiber, can help increase the viscosity of the stomach contents which may help further protect gastric mucosa.

Forage 3In a field study conducted at a commercial equine hospital, six mature performance horses presented signs of gastric discomfort and underwent gastroscopy to evaluate gastric mucosa health.

Each horse was diagnosed with grade 2 ulcers of the lesser curvature.

Owners were given Forage First® GS and instructions to not begin any other possible interventions including nutritional/management practices, housing, exercise and/or pharmaceutical.

After 30 days, a second gastroscopy revealed a 75 percent reduction in ulcer scores.

This data supports the use of Forage First® GS to help support a healthy gastric environment.

Forage First® GS is available locally at Sensenig's Feed Mill in New Holland, Pa.

For information on this product specifically from Sensenig's or for any of your equine nutrition needs please call Ashley, Sensenig's Equine Consultant at (717)354-4756.
