Exclusive LifeSource® Bits

Now Enhanced with Super 7 Antioxidants

LifeSource Bits contain a precise blend of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists. And now all BLUE Life Protection Formula dog foods feature LifeSource Bits that have been enhanced with our Super 7 package of antioxidant-rich ingredients:

  • Apples
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Cranberries
  • Pomegranate
  • Pumpkin
  • Spinach

The ingredients in LifeSource Bits help support:

  • Immune system health
  • Life stage requirements
  • Healthy oxidative balance

And LifeSource Bits are "cold-formed" to help retain the potency of their ingredients. This means that we minimize the amount of heat that LifeSource Bits are exposed to during the manufacturing process. It’s the same concept as when you cook vegetables at high heat—the longer you do, the more heat-sensitive nutrients are lost.
