Who We Are.

Kelzyme® was founded in the 1980s and trademarked in the 1990s under different names to mine, license, test and market the deposit of fossilized sea kelp discovered in Northern Nevada by Milton Christensen. Since then, Kelzyme has grown as a company and now makes its unique product available to livestock and poultry producers, private livestock owners, commercial agricultural growers, and home gardeners looking for a simple and natural alternative. The Kelzyme® offices are located in Brooklyn, New York & Clayton, California. Our production facilities are in Northern Nevada.

Our unique and all-natural mineralized deposit is sold around the world, including Europe, Central and South America, Asia, Africa, Canada, and the United States.
