Since enzymes breakdown the food and make it more bioavailable, and probiotics help strengthen the gut to absorb the nutrients, having both present, along with feeding the flora with prebiotics is a healthy approach. We combine all three to help your dog get the most out of their meals.
Enzymes, Dog’s Mealtime Helper
Enzymes Protease, Amylase and Lipase break down protein, starch and lipids, respectively, into small units making the nutrients more bioavailable. This will help the gut break down food further, enhancing nutrient absorption.
Friendly Bacteria for Dogs Healthy Gut
Certain strains of bacteria are “friendly” to your dog’s body, helping to both strengthen the gut and inhibit growth of harmful bacteria that can cause yeast overgrowths in the ears and skin. Good bacteria include acidophilus (lactobacillus acidophilus) and lactobacillus bifidus. Acidophilus can help your dog detoxify, has antibacterial and antifungal properties, and can aid digestion and the absorption of nutrients. Sometimes when dogs have digestive difficulties preventing nutrient absorption, we can help them by replacing or supplementing their friendly bacteria. To help strengthen your dog’s gut, we have milled select organic foods that act as PREbiotics to feed the PRObiotics that act as enzymes and digestive aids geared specifically toward dogs recovering from intestinal stress. Adding PREbiotics is important for nourishing PRObiotics in order for them to thrive. These PREbiotic nutrients come in the form of milled plant fiber, specifically, organic superfoods chia and flaxseed, ground to increase bioavailability, which also delivers healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. You will also find organic wheatgrass in Pro-Active Biotics™, with the health benefits that include oxygenating/energizing chlorophyll, a natural internal cleanser.
