SPRING, Texas, Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Natural Algae Astaxanthin Association (NAXA) announced that Zesty Paws Life Energy Bites has earned the NAXA Verification Program seal. The NAXA Verification Program (NAVP) tests products to verify that they contain natural algae astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis algae, which has been scientifically proven to have health benefits for humans and animals.
"Pet parents are no different than human supplement consumers—they want to know that the astaxanthin they're giving their pet, is the scientifically proven astaxanthin extracted from Haematococcus pluvialis," said Scott Steinford, NAXA President. "NAXA's third-party independent testing assures consumers and manufacturers that what's in the bottle is the natural form of astaxanthin that has been clinically tested."
Life Energy Bites contains 2 mg of natural algae astaxanthin per chew along with other natural and organic ingredients to boost energy.
"We believe that pet parents deserve to know what goes into their pet care products, so we are transparent about every ingredient we use in our carefully crafted, science-backed formulas," said Zachary Popovich, Director of Operations, Zesty Paws. "Qualifying for the NAXA Verification seal reinforces our commitment to being a company our customers can trust and that our products have in the bottle what they say on the label."
