Probiotics for Pets
Whether you're new to animal health or a professional raw feeder, Pet Potions & Remedies Probiotics for Pets is exactly what've been searching for.
- If you've been wondering, 'where do I even start?', the answer is HERE.
- If you've been wondering if there is something simple you can give to help boost your pets general health and vitality, the answer is THIS.
- If you're struggling with health issues and wondering if there's something more you can do to help, the answer is YES, absolutely there is, and THIS IS IT.
Bacteria are the foundation of good health. Sounds funny but it's true. There are actually 10 times MORE bacterial cells in your body than human cells, and these bacteria perform vital functions that our own cells simply cannot. In a nutshell, we NEED them to survive, and we need the right balance in order to thrive!
Unfortunately there are a lot of environmental factors that kill off our own (& our pets) natural healthy bacteria. Simple things like the chlorine or fluoride in tap water, some medications, the use of garden, landscaping and farm chemicals like pesticides, herbicides & weed killers, using lots of antibacterial cleaning products in the home, and of course antibiotics. As a result we can be left with insufficient good bacteria to keep our immune system healthy and strong, and that's where probiotics come in.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
This is not just any probiotic, this humble little tub is full of naturally fermented, certified organic wholefoods, REAL foods, that have been exposed to a mother culture (containing 14 different strains) of good bacteria, which in turn has started to pre-digest those foods.
Pre-digestion may sound icky but its amazing. It basically means that the bacteria have started to break down the foods, thereby making all of the nutrients in them, the vitamins, minerals, amino acids & phyto-chemicals easier to digest, absorb and assimilate. YAY!
The next stroke of genius is that this tub contains not just super easy to absorb nutrition, not just 14 different strains of probiotic bacteria, but also PREBIOTICS!
Prebiotics are fibrous foods that act as a food source for probiotic bacteria.
PROBIOTICS = BACTERIA
PREBIOTICS = FOOD FOR PROBIOTICS
Given that we have 10 times more bacteria in and on our bodies, it would be quite difficult to supplement with ALL the different types that we know of (and that's without even considering the ones we haven't discovered yet!).
So instead we provide a good dose of good bacteria (probiotics), plus some food for them and their billions of friends (prebiotics) with a nice side benefit of readily accessible nutrition. WIN WIN WIN!!!
WHAT CAN PROBIOTICS HELP WITH?
Research in the field of probiotics is constantly evolving, and because they are so basic to life and health, improvements and therapeutic benefits can be seen across a wide variety of conditions, including;
- helping with digestion
- increasing nutrient absorption
- preventing inflammation
- skin problems
- supporting immune function
- autoimmune disease
- gastrointestinal problems
- diarrhoea and constipation
- kidney disease
- pancreatic disease
- urinary tract infections
- and more....
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED DOSE?
Dosing is also super easy, simply sprinkle the powder onto any food or drink. Hot, cold, doesn't matter. It's completely stable so wont be degraded either way.
We advise that you begin with small doses so that your pet can adjust, 1/4 (one quarter) of a teaspoon for about 2 weeks is a great way to start before increasing the dose incrementally for your pet.
For most pets, one tub lasts AGES, we're talking 2-4months per pet, which is fantastic value for money. Of course it depends on the size of your pet, but when you consider that 1/2 a teaspoon only weighs 1-2g, that's 75-150 days worth in every tub!!
Simply put, there really is no good reason NOT to try this with your pets.
