Rosemary Extract

Herbs have traditionally been used to strength the body and help treat disease. The herb rosemary, when used in the proper form and amount, can be beneficial to both pets and humans.

Researchers at the University of Maryland Medical Center have found that in humans, rosemary can help improve memory, relieve muscle pain and spasms, stimulate hair growth and support the circulatory and nervous systems. They further state that it might even help prevent some forms of cancer, or inhibit its growth.


In fact, rosemary extract has been a pet food ingredient for more than 20 years. The regulating agency for pet food in the United States, the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), approves its use.


Unfortunately, incorrect information that rosemary extract might be harmful to pets has been circulating on the Internet. We vigorously object to these false statements, and intend to set the record straight. Studies have proven that rosemary extract is safe and has numerous health benefits. Also, negative side effects cited on the web actually pertained to rosemary oil, a toxic, volatile oil meant for topical use only. Rosemary extract, not rosemary oil, is the form we use in our pet food. Rosemary extract is purified to exclude all traces of rosemary oil. Furthermore, the amount of rosemary extract used in pet food is miniscule, typically at a rate of one ounce per 2,000 pounds of food.
