BioStar’s story begins with Lionheart, Tigger Montague’s performance horse, who had not responded to any treatments or therapies, but who finally responded with a whole food diet. The recipe that was used became BioStar’s first formula, followed by much more, born in Tigger’s Virginia kitchen. The formulas and research has grown into the BioStar we know and love today.
Lionheart suffered crippling inflammation of the bursa. On the advice of her veterinarian, Dr. Tim Ober, the last resort was to have a surgeon perform a neurectomy. From a horse competing at the highest level of the sport, to this prognosis, it was a huge blow to have nowhere else to turn. Tigger decided that perhaps whole food would be supportive before more drastic and permanent options were undergone. What happened next was a complete and utter surprise to both Tigger and Dr. Ober. The horse improved and came sound, by feeding a combination of sprouted foods and whole foods. No longer was a permanent surgery or lifetime of pharmaceuticals on the table. This formula was where BioStar got itÃ¢s start and was later dubbed, Furnace EQ for itÃ¢s ability to stimulate nitric oxide production in the body and reduce inflammation. From that moment on, a wide variety of formulas for horses began to get underway and BioStar as a company was born.
From the humble beginnings in TiggerÃ¢s kitchen, to the release of a full canine line of supplements and treats in 2013, the company retains the principles and values it was founded on as it expands to wholesale and topical treatments. These include:
GMO-free ingredients (no genetically modified organisms)
Coal tar free ingredients
High nutrient availability from dehydration and freeze drying processes (no cooking or high heat processing)
Products tested for efficacy and palatability before being released to market
Emphasis on providing a customer service experience that places the customersÃ¢ needs first.
Today, BioStar is headquartered in Gordonsville, Virginia. They have been certified for good manufacturing practices with the Non-GMO Project, and boast a production team and customer support staff that is second to none. BioStar focuses on choosing employees as carefully as they choose their ingredients!
