A unique, stable probiotic organism that promotes gastrointestinal health
- supports healthy gut flora
- no refrigeration or special handling required
- stable, healthy bacteria survive stomach acidity
- recommended to maintain proper gut flora
The canine and feline intestinal tract contains trillions of bacteria that, in a healthy animal, coexist in a beneficial, symbiotic relationship. They help digest food, produce vitamins, regulate metabolism, and control normal immune response. Providing animals with supplemental probiotic bacteria promotes a healthy intestinal environment by producing lactic acid and secreting fatty acids helpful to the growth of other beneficial microorganisms. Bacillus coagulans is a lactic acid-producing bacteria that represents a breakthrough in probiotic supplementation. This beneficial bacteria is dormant until ingestion, when it reverts to a growing bacteria in the intestines. Because of this it resists being destroyed by stomach acid; in contrast, many probiotics lose most or all of their potency before use and do not survive the journey through the stomach.
