There are a zillion products out there that make marvelous claims about how they will improve your animal companion’s health. Many of these claims are exaggerated, and sometimes so fantastic that they seem too good to be true–and usually, they are!

However, several years ago we discovered a product that does everything it claims–and much more. In all these years of looking, we have never found any other product that works quite as well, or that is as palatable to even the fussiest cats and dogs–an important feature!

The product is called “BioSuperfood.” It is a combination of microalgae that contains a full spectrum of highly bioavailable, concentrated nutrients: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, natural antioxidants (including chlorophyll and phycocyanin), and enzymes. This blend of algae contain 30 times more nutrition per ounce than anything we or our animals can consume in our diet. While the “potency” of the nutrients is low compared to most vitamin supplements, their maximal bioavailability make them far more powerful than they would be in another form.

BioSuperfood was developed by Dr. Michael Kiriac, a Russian doctor with a Biology degree in Cellular Nutrition and a PhD in Biotechnology. After years of research with all kinds of isolated vitamins and supplements, as well as chlorella, Spirulina and other algae, he discovered a Bio-Algae Concentrate blend of 4 species of microalgae that stopped the ongoing epidemic of cancer in controlled trials with chickens, mink, pigs and cows. The Bio-Algae concentrate named “BioSuperfood” (BSF) is the culmination of intensive work by pioneers in biotechnology, hundreds of clinical researches, tests and practical applications over the past 30 years. It contains a synergistic combination of those 4 unique species of blue-green algae.

What makes BioSuperfood (and the pet formulation BioPreparation, BP), different from other popular algae products, like spirulina or chlorella? The 4 species in BSF/BP have polysaccharide cell walls, while most other algae have indigestible cellulose cell walls. BSF/BP are much more easily digested and absorbed. Their high bioavailability makes them particularly valuable for animals with digestive problems. BSF and BP are also highly palatable, and even fussy cats will eat without complaint when either is mixed with their wet food (canned or homemade).

NOTE: If your cat eats dry food, please read this article right now; come back to this article afterward! Your cat’s life depends on it! No supplement will make up for the dehydrating effects of a dry diet, and we cannot recommend BioSuperfood or BioPreparation for cats who are being fed dry food!

Just some of the benefits that have been seen with BSF and BP in animals and humans include:

  • Improved digestion and assimilation of nutrients
  • Increased appetite and interest in eating new foods
  • Weight loss
  • Supple, healthy skin and glossy fur
  • Relief of arthritis pain, asthma, IBD, and other inflammatory conditions
  • Increased mobility in older animals
  • Increased stamina and overall energy
  • Sounder sleep
  • Shorter recovery time after surgery
  • Quicker healing
  • Fewer and briefer colds and infections
  • More balanced emotions (leading to improved behavior)
  • Balanced growth and development
  • Enhanced blood cell development
  • Cancers and tumors prevented and reduced

What’s even more interesting about BioSuperfood and BioPreparation is their ability to create synergism with food and even medications. Digestion and absorption are greatly enhanced, meaning that your pet will get more nutrition from food. The amount of medications your pet may be taking, including herbs, can often be reduced. (Be sure you work with your veterinarian to adjust dosages as your pet’s system gets healthier!)

In most cases, other nutritional supplements are not necessary and can be discontinued. BSF/BP plus pure water and a good diet will provide all the nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that the body needs!

Case Report: Simeon, 2 year old male cat
“Simeon stopped producing red blood cells, but tested negative for leukemia. The cause of this life-threatening problem was his weak intestinal cells, which could no longer absorb nutrients and release wastes. When he eats BioSuperfood daily, normal cell function returns. The BioSuperfood feeds the weak cells and supports their healthy function. As a result, Simeon efficiently digests and absorbs nutrients from his food and can build rich and vibrant blood!”

Case Report: Murphy, 15 year old male cat
“I thought I may have trouble introducing something new to Murphy! Anything new, he hates! So I’ve been mixing the BioSuperfood with a small amount of canned salmon, and he is eating it very well! I was amazed! I thought for sure he’d turn up his nose but that is not the case. I have told him that it’s good stuff and will help him feel big and strong! So maybe that is helping him too! I’ve noticed he seems more self assured, especially when he’s on the couch with me in the evenings!” (Murphy’s mom also reports that he’s getting along better with Molly the dog.)

Case Report: Sable, 5 year old female retriever
“Sable is glowing on the outside: shiny coat, sweet breath (she’d had foul breath even though her teeth were kept clean). She’s improved in her attitude and involvement around the house and yard, more playful! She rarely slows down on her leash-walks any more, and no trouble with stairs! I think the BSF may have helped her turn the corner.”

Little Big Cat is proud to recommend BSFand BP to our furry (and non-furry) friends.  There are several formulas and we want to make sure your pet is getting the formula best suited to his or her circumstances, at the correct dosage. Click here to get started.

Science & Research

BioSuperfood boasts a multitude of nutrients. A more indepth breakdown of nutritional values can be found HERE


Beginning in the early 70’s, the Academy of Science and later the Ministry of Nutrition of the former Soviet Union invested more than 20,000 person-years of research and development into producing nutrient-rich blends of algae, coined Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC). This patient and innovative research delivered blends of algae that held extraordinary nutritional properties.

Consisting of complementary and synergistic mixes of the best algae selected among thousands investigated, BAC far exceeds the benefits of any single alga, algae blend, green food or superfood known today. These concentrates were studied and tested in large animal populations and were also used in the real life production of millions of chickens, thousands of pigs, minks and dairy cows. These tests began a decade before and continued long after the 1990 breakdown of the former Soviet Republic.

In 2001, I wrote a book detailing these twenty years of intensive Soviet research. This book also tells the dramatic story of Michael Kiriac, PhD who pioneered algae research during those years as the principal scientist for the Academy of Science. His research led to the extraordinary algae blends in BAC, as well as the innovation of hydroponic technologies, some of which were patented and are still in use today.

BAC was tested extensively with over twenty animal species, including rats, rabbits, birds, fish, cats, dogs, goats, and horses. I will relate only those projects that are considered undeniable proof of concept due to the number of animals involved. These blind study cases provide compelling evidence for the benefits of using BAC.

Chicken Research

The most compelling results for the effectiveness of BAC were demonstrated at a large poultry research center in Moldova from 1985 to 1995. A farm with a starting population of one million chickens was used as a principal research center in a production environment to demonstrate the prevention of cancer. In those ten years with BAC, the farm’s population grew to 1.5 million and a 20% gain in overall productivity was achieved.

Here are some of the benefits that were seen:

  • Eradication of Marek’s disease
  • Greater vitality, reduction of disease
  • Larger eggs with stronger shells due to higher calcium content
  • Viability increased from 90% to 98% (birth mortality dropped from 10% to less than 2%)
  • Increased egg laying period from 17 months to 24 months (due to reduction in bone loss)
  • 50 additional eggs per chicken, per year
  • Higher nutritive value of the eggs
  • Better tasting meat and eggs

Dairy Cow Research

In Russia, many clinical trials showed significant results with cows using BAC. A large trial was done on a dairy farm with 15,000 cows. This farm, which had been affected by cancers and low productivity, saw significant benefits after introducing BAC. Here is a partial list of observations from this trial:

  • Increased viability of donor’s embryos and resulting fecundity
  • Increased spermatozoid count and motility (4-5 times)
  • Increased instances of multiple births (twins)
  • Increased viability of newborns
  • Increased butterfat and protein percentage in milk
  • Extension of lactation periods decreasing turnaround for new cows
  • Reduction of daily protein/feed by 10%-15% with no decrease in milk
  • Increased calcium absorption and retention, reduction of bone loss
  • Reduction and prevention of metabolic mastitis by over 90%
  • Faster healing of mastitis with less loss in lactation time
  • Prevention and relief from arthritis
  • Fewer hormonal disorders
  • Reduction of thyroid problems in calves and quicker healing
  • Increased fertility, fecundity and viability
  • Increased immunity and prevention of tumors and cancer
  • Accelerated healing and tissue repair, strength and flexibility
  • Prevention and reduction of degenerative diseases and associated costs
  • Prevention of encephalopathy through increased immunity
  • Balanced mood and less excitability
  • Improved digestion and detoxification
  • Elimination of the use of antibiotics and growth hormones
  • Healthier and better tasting milk and meat

Pig Research

A pig farm with 54,000 pigs near Voronege was plagued with various cancers and low productivity. The following results were observed:

  • Increased spermatozoid count and motility (4 times)
  • Increased size of pig litter
  • Increased viability of piglets
  • Increased fertility

Mink Research

In Siberia, hundreds of mink farms containing a total of more than 10,000 animals were affected by various cancers and low productivity, adversely affecting this important Soviet industry. The following results were observed:

  • Increased viability of donor’s embryos and resulting fecundity
  • Increased spermatozoid count and motility (4 times)
  • Significant increase in litter size
  • Increased viability of new borns
  • Shinier and healthier coats
  • Increased fertility

Dog Research

In this informal study, hundreds of dogs, the majority of which were German Shepherds, were observed over the course of several years. The dogs were used in Moldova to guard the poultry research farm from foxes and other predators. The following results were noted:

  • Increased litter size
  • Increased viability of puppies
  • Minimal health problems as compared with the neighboring farm’s dog population
  • Increased fertility
