100% Natural British Ingredients
We are passionate about using only the best home grown ingredients in all of our products, all of which are traceable right from the growing stages through to final bottling. No chemicals, pesticides or additives have been used in the making of our superfood supplements!
We use premium cold pressed culinary grade flaxseed oil and concentrated active herbal tinctures which have not been subject to drying or heating processes and as such their goodness and nutrients have been retained. In this form they are at their most powerful and effective. The British farms that we use are DEFRA/Red Tractor/cGMP licensed.
To assure you that you are getting a 100% natural, raw & pure product, our products are intermittently tested by an independent DEFRA approved laboratory which validate the products freshness and purity.
As a result of this testing, our products have been given an 18-month seal of approval for freshness prior to opening and then a further 8 weeks once opened.
Let’s start with food..
When it comes to food, there is a perception that there is no need to supplement if you are feeding what is labelled as a ‘balanced’ diet. Most dog foods today claim to include everything that your dog needs to maintain good health. Dry (kibble) and wet foods are labelled as balanced & complete with added nutrients and/or supplements, however, any type of food that has been through a manufacturing process will lose a percentage of its nutritional value.
Added supplements are generally in the form of botanicals (herbs) and oils, both of which are known to have huge health benefits when fresh. Many claim to support joints, are calming, aid digestion or relieve skin issues. However, the percentage of herbs used in most dried or wet foods is so minimal that they rarely provide effective support of any specific ailment. Plus, more importantly, when botanicals undergo any type of manufacturing process – heating or drying – their bioactive compounds are compromised making them deficient of any real nutritional value.
It is also important to remember that every dog is unique. Some working dogs will require additional support than their house dog counterparts! Plus different breeds may require added support of their joints, heart etc.
An ingredient that is vital in your dogs diet to keep them healthy are essential fatty acids (EFA’s) which can be found in the form of fish or plant oils. EFA’s cannot be made by the body and have to be supplemented in the diet. These oils are classed as ‘good’ (polyunsaturated) fats and are shown on labelling as flaxseed oil, salmon oil, hemp oil etc. When oils are added to dried dog food in the manufacturing process they become oxidised due to being heated and thus provide little or no nutritional value or health benefit. Oils that are added to home cooked foods have the same fate due to heating (even at low temperatures) as do any wet or raw complete foods that are prepared and then frozen as they lose their EFA’s through the thawing process because they have been subject to light and air. Therefore, oils need to be taken in the ‘raw’ state, poured over the prepared food, in order for them to be really beneficial.
By adding herbs, oils or any similar type of ingredient in its natural, raw state just before you feed your dog you are making sure that they are getting the correct level of supplement according to your dogs individual needs, with all of the active compounds and nutrients necessary to make a real difference to their health. Proflax supplements are 100% natural, fresh and ready blended to simply pour over your dogs food once daily.
Rebalancing emotional stress
It is vital to support your dogs emotional wellbeing as well as their physical health. If we are anxious or upset they too will pick up on how we are feeling. It is important to maintain calmness, provide suitable exercise and provide plenty of mental stimulation so that they remain emotionally as well as physically happy. In today’s busy world this can be a challenge!
Proflax supplements are ‘holistic’ which mean they support your dogs emotional as well as physical health and wellbeing. This is unique for any supplement.

“My old girl has been showing definite signs of improvement in her mobility over the last month, so much so, that I have bought more of the Bone and Joint treatment for her. Her tummy has been amazing since starting the B&J with only a couple of relapses, but that was probably due to eating something she shouldn’t have! She seems much brighter and happier too – so all in all – huge ‘thumbs up!’”
As we and our dogs get older there are several areas that require extra support; joints, brain, heart, liver, kidneys and immune, digestive & circulatory systems. Generally dogs aged 7+ fit into this category, but as with humans, every dog is individual.

The first 12-18 months of your pups life are critical as they form the foundations of their health and wellbeing, both physically and emotionally. The combination of a nutritious diet, mental stimulation, exercise, positive interaction with people and other animals plus lots of love make for a happy puppy! Your pups skin, bones, organs & nervous system grow at an astonishing rate in the first year to 18 months, so juniors need lots more calories than adult dogs and require a higher amount of nutrients and essential fatty acids to support their rapid growth. A nutritious, healthy fresh diet is recommended. We would also recommend supplementing your pups food with Puppy Power to support their growth and development.
