Why ZipZyme™?

  • ZipZyme™ Omega
    A "Game Changer" in Omega 3 pet nutrition.


    Feed ZipZyme™ daily for:


    DHA is the most important Omega 3 fatty acid  that helps to improve and prevent many chronic pet health issues. These include cognitive decline, heart disease, inflammation, asthma, arthritis, and certain cancers, just to name a few. DHA is a necessary building block for healthy brain development and optimum cognitive functioning throughout your pet’s life. It strengthens their immune response and is a tool for healthy weight management.

    DHA is so important to your pet’s health that your pet is unable to achieve optimum health if this important nutrient is lacking. DHA must come from the food they eat… until now. ZipZyme™ Omega is a “game changer” in Omega 3 DHA nutrition. This wholesome food source from ocean algae provides a clean highly bioavailable source of DHA. In addition, ZIpZyme™ contains anti-oxidative enzymes that protect the cells from damaging oxidation that affect all extracted oil essential fatty acid oil as well as the metabolic enzymes that create DHA.

    Ocean Algae – the source of Omega 3 Nutrition.

    Algae grows throughout the world’s oceans and is a basic food for the fish that populate the seas.  Ocean algae contains metabolic enzymes that create the DHA needed by all animals – pets and humans.  Fish eat the algae, thereby acquiring the enzymes. The fish are then caught, and killed so that the Omega 3 containing oil can be extracted.

    ZIPZYME™ is not extracted oil, but fresh whole cell Omega 3 laden algae

    Unfortunately, the process to produce and package fish oil is seriously flawed.  To obtain the fish oil, and the DHA in the oil, the processors use heat to extract the oil. Heat above 115• F creates the potential for damaging oxidation of the molecules, completely destroys the enzymes and reduces the viable DHA yield in the finished product.  The molecular structure of fatty acid molecules, as well as the lack of protective enzymes, also contributes to such damaging oxidation.  This can transform the Omega 3 molecules into rancid, toxic chemicals.

    Recognizing that heat destroys the algae’s metabolic enzymes, PhytoSmart embarked on a development program to create a sterile growing system that would preserve the algae’s enzymatic activity without resorting to damaging heat levels.  We now continuously produce ZipZyme™ in our patented sterile growing system SPAGS (Sterile Plastic Algal Growth System).

    ZipZyme™ stands above all Omega 3 extracted oils that can be toxic to your pet and begin to spoil as soon as the package seal is broken. Once opened, the contents are exposed to the air and begin to oxidize – and over time becomes rancid. This can often occur in as little as 90 days. Once this damaging oxidation process starts there is no going back!

    Extracted Omega 3 oil contains none of the  anti-oxidative or metabolic enzymes found in algae. Therefore no extracted Omega 3 oil can deliver the full array of health benefits provided by ZipZyme™.

    As validated in the Guardian

    The negative health consequences of Omega 3 oxidized extracted fish or algal oil are validated in the article that appeared in the UK newspaper on January 17, 2022 – https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/jan/17/revealed-many-common-omega-3-fish-oil-supplements-are-rancid.

    ZipZyme™ Omega offers Omega 3 marine plant based  nutrition for pets of all sizes. It is a safe, natural, whole-cell algae Omega DHA nutrient that helps protect and repair your pet’s health. When eaten daily, ZipZyme™ Omega DHA helps support cognition and brain health, reduce allergic reactions,  alleviate skin/coat issues,  improve circulation and mobility, repair metabolisms, and more.

    To maintain freshness we recommend treating ZipZyme™ like an item of produce — either freezing or refrigerating the pack/pouches until you are ready to feed ZipZyme™ to your pets. Our newest addition to the ZipZyme™ family, KRUMBLE™ is likewise protected from damaging oxidation, and no longer requires refrigeration or freezing.

    ZipZyme™ products deliver the most natural, bioavailable DHA nutrition directly from the source: ocean algae – without all the problems found in extracted Omega 3 oil products.  And because ZipZyme™ is produced without heat the enzymatic activity remains active and intact.

    These algal metabolic enzymes work to prevent the accumulation of unhealthy saturated fats that are a gateway to animal illnesses. They do so by converting glucose to healthy DHA laden fats. Feed your favorite animal friend ZipZyme™ Omega daily.

    ZipZyme the safe alternative for cats

    The Omega 3 oil you are using CAN BE toxic to your pet!

    Fish oil manufacturers use heat in their production processes destroying the special enzymes that algae naturally possess, thus limiting the health benefits that might be derived from Omega 3 nutrients.

    Toxic oxidation can begin to occur within weeks — much sooner than the expiration date.  The antioxidants added by manufacturers offer little added protection. Once this damaging oxidation process starts there is no going back! 

    The whole cell DHA nutrition offered by ZipZyme™ is the safer, better game changing solution. Any benefits to brain, heart, and metabolic health derived from Omega 3 extracted oils are therefore vastly limited compared to the whole cell DHA nutrition provided by ZipZyme™.
