Probiotics are live cultures that benefit intestinal
microflora and promote your pets good health
in a variety of ways.
Probiotics reinforce the intestinal barrier, which
helps prevent the attachment of pathogens (disease
causing agents) and the entry of allergens (substances
that cause allergies) into the system. These friendly
bacteria aid in the digestion of proteins and are
needed to produce many B vitamins and to detoxify
many pathogenic organisms.
They also have anti-fungal properties, enhance nutrient
absorption and help lower cholesterol. Probiotics
have proven very useful in many food allergies, and
current research also indicates that they may have
some immune stimulating and anti-cancer properties.
In times of stress, illness, poor diet or administration
of antibiotics, the good bacteria in the intestinal
tract can become overwhelmed by bad bacteria, leading
to digestive problems, flatulence and foul odors.
Disease and aging are additional factors that have
an adverse impact on the intestinal microflora. Probiotics
helps normalize your pets digestive tract with
an infusion of beneficial bacteria.
