Smidge Small Batch Supplements in Southfield has added fresh, grass-fed emu oil softgel small-batch supplements to the company’s product line.

The supplements are meant to offer essential nutrients lacking in even the best whole foods diets, and the emu oil grass-fed emu oil softgels are sustainably sourced from heritage-bred emus that graze on the pastures of southeast Australia.

The oils contain a combination of unadulterated, natural nutrients — especially vitamin K2 (MK-4) and omega fatty acids (3,6,7 and 9). Each serving contains 1,500 mg of 100 percent pure Smidge Emu Oil, including 6.4 mcg of vitamin K2 (MK-4).

“The best part is the vitamin K2 in our Emu Oil doesn’t require conversion like other forms of vitamin K (such as MK-7, the plant form),” says Dann Corrigan, co-owner of Smidge. “So, your body can readily use and absorb it,” “You also won’t find it at your local health food store. It’s that precious.”

Vitamin K2 supports collagen production, skin, bone, and dental health, according to published scientific studies, says Corrigan. The emu is a flightless bird native to Australia that has survived between 60 and 100 million years, as stated by zoological reports.

“We went through Herculean efforts to provide Heritage-bred Emu Oil. It’s the best source of vitamin K2 because it’s from animal fat, and our customers were asking for it,” says Corrigan.

The emu oil is rendered promptly at a low temperature from the bird’s fat. Emu fat stores nutrition and energy for when it’s needed most: during drought, famine, and reproduction phases.

“This process retains all of the oil’s rich nutritional properties and cofactors, while other brands may remove the fat and freeze it for rendering later,” says Corrigan. “And we maintain quality and control over the entire process, from rendering to bottling the oil in fresh, small batches.”

The product also has no fillers, additives, or common allergens. The manufacturing facility’s certifications include Australian Made, Australian Grown, ECASS Certified- ISO 9001, ECASS Certified – ISO 22716 and GMP Certified.
