Fourflax as you know it, is changing...we are re-branding to ProVida.
In the early part of 2015, the Fourflax team took on a new mission, to develop a new name, look and design for the brand.
As animal health suppliers, we wanted to create a brand with a more scientific and professional feel, with an underlying sense of Veterinary credibility to it. On the one hand, it had to feel like a clinical professional treatment, whilst on the other, it should evoke some of the natural feelings of care and affection one has towards animals...and this was where ProVida was born!
ProVida (pronounced 'pro-veeda') in essence, translates to 'for life'.
We bring to animal health a range of supplements proven to offer significant health and wellness benefits.
"Originally we looked into flaxseed oil as a palatable source of Omega oils and the neurological benefits it could bring. We needed something we could easily hide in the primates food without strong smells or tastes (primates are a lot pickier than people think!)
We use Fourflax Flax Seed Oil with all primates (spider monkeys, siamang gibbons, ringtailed lemurs and black & white ruffed lemurs) for psychological and coat maintenance.
Additionally it is used on hoofstock such as giraffe to aide in general condition and in cheetah for joint health.
I would recommend Fourflax to anyone!"

"Thanks to the support of Fourflax Animal Health Products, our carnivores and primates at Hamilton Zoo have been enjoying the addition of flaxseed oil in their diets. We apply it daily to our carnivores meat diet and over fruit and vegetable diets for our primates.
In the three months that we have been using the flaxseed oil we have seen positive results in coat condition and also noticed improvements in their general health and wellbeing. Some of our visitors have commented, “the chimpanzees skin looks so good”, which we credit to the use of Fourflax flaxseed oil. The long term benefits of using such a product is evident in the health and welfare of our animals."
Catherine Nichols, Team Leader Mammals, Hamilton Zoo
RICHEST SOURCE OF OMEGA 3
Flax Seed Oil provides the richest (almost 60%) natural source of Omega 3, an essential fatty acid (EFA).
Fourflax works closely with Canterbury farmers to ensure the supply of fully traceable and quality Linseed seed for the production of our Flax Seed products. This traceability guarantees the quality of the seed planted in the ground, the resultant seed going into the presses, and therefore the finest quality finished products.
