BioStar US creates supplements and treats for the dog (and
horse) owner with the health and wellbeing of their pet in mind. By
utilizing a range of natural, whole, real ingredients, their
products aim to target immune system support, weight management,
and so much more. We had the pleasure of speaking with the BioStar
US team to ask them more about their products and what makes
BioStar US a great choice for pet owners. 

What goods/services do you provide?

We formulate and create unique supplements from whole
bioavailable foods that are organic, high-quality, and raw, never
baked. BioStar US empowers dog and horse owners with knowledge and
insights into alternative nutrition sources using the oldest
medicine on earth: plants. Our products address whole health: the
mind-body connection, joint support, daily wellness, and overall
equilibrium.

 

Why are your products unique? How does your company stand
out?

As leaders in our field, BioStar US has exceptionally high
standards for every ingredient and method of production. Your
dog’s wellbeing is our number one focus above all else, therefore
we use only the best, most nutritious, whole food ingredients for
our supplement formulas. Each product is handmade with love by our
dedicated production staff and our products are free from coal tar
derivatives, wheat, soy, added flavorings (artificial or
“natural”), and petrochemicals. We source organic and non-GMO
ingredients wherever possible.

 

Why is BioStar US a good choice? What are the
benefits?

From top to bottom, BioStar stands apart from other supplement
companies — not only because we use real, whole food, but because
we know fundamentally that whole food and health are strongly
connected. We don’t sacrifice raw material quality to save
money, and we don’t sacrifice our employees’ wellbeing in
order to boost profits. We know without a doubt that our product
formulas are unique to BioStar — not replicas, copies or generic
alternatives to what some other company has created. We seek out
specific ingredients from small, conscientious suppliers, ensuring
better quality control and a closer relationship from farm to
table. We offer a guarantee of freshness, performance, and
palatability. Our blog articles bring you information on whole food
nutrition so you can make the best decisions about the care and
health of your horses and dogs. We believe in our products because
we’ve seen the BioStar difference firsthand in our own dogs.

What are your corBioStar food mixere
values? How do they influence your business practices?

Just as BioStar’s focus on ingredients in our formulas is of
utmost importance, so is our dedication to give back by supporting
larger sustainability efforts like GMO labeling, saving the
pollinators, biodiversity, no-till farming, the reduction of
chemical fertilizers, pesticide and herbicide reduction, the
importance of a healthy soil microbiome, and reducing the carbon
footprint. Each quarter, a charity is chosen and a percentage of
product sales goes directly to it. Charities range from horse and
dog rescues, to environmental organizations, to sustainable
agriculture initiatives. Each are given the spotlight in
newsletters, highlighted on our website, and featured in social
media posts along with donation information. From there, BioStar
builds on these philanthropic ideals to join forces with the
American Sustainable Business Council, an organization that
promotes sustainable and vibrant economics, working towards better
environmental policies in the government and in the media. In 2017,
BioStar created a sister company, Changing Tides, that
promotes environmental sustainability through conscious gifting.
The selected products are made ethically and sustainably, and
support vendors that promote community, recycling, and the
conservation of our wildlife, wild places, resources, and clean air
and water. BioStar believes in being the change we’d like to see in
the world.

 

What is the inspiration for the creation of BioStar?
Tigger with Australian Sheperd

BioStar was born in Tigger Montague’s kitchen in
Charlottesville, Virginia — the result of her trying to help her
horse overcome crippling inflammation of the bursa that had not
responded to any sort of treatment options or therapies. Tigger
decided that adding some whole food would at least be supportive
before more drastic and permanent paths were followed. The horse
improved and eventually came sound after feeding a combination of
sprouted foods and whole foods. No longer was permanent nerve loss
or a lifetime of pharmaceuticals on the table. This diet was the
foundation for what would become BioStar. Soon after, a wide
variety of formulas for horses were in development and the company
launched in 2008.

In 2013, Tigger’s Australian Shepherds decided that the horses
were getting enough of the spotlight and we expanded our products
to include a full canine line.
