What is Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains?
This is a high potency probiotic supplement for pets, supplying nine different strains of probiotics with added prebiotics. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains contains beneficial strains specific for dogs and dogs, at a highly effective potency.
Beneficial bacteria exist throughout the bodies of humans and animals. They are vital to our existence and regulate numerous physiological processes. These organisms are passed from a mother to the offspring during birth and begin to populate the body inside and out, including the mucosa of the digestive tract and the layers of the skin. Throughout life, there are many things we come into contact with that can harm this microbiome or microflora, as it is sometimes called. Stressors can include medications, infections, environmental toxins and unhealthy foods.
Ingesting beneficial bacteria through foods and supplements supports the microbiome to stay strong and healthy. Probiotic bacteria are a normal and necessary part of the body's defence against harmful pathogens. Without these beneficial bacteria, the body is less resistant to infections, has difficulty digesting foods and displays less neurological stability.
Be sure when comparing the strengths of different probiotic supplements, that you are comparing the same milligrams or grams. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains guarantees the viability of the healthy bacterial strains until the date of expiry at 5 billion CFU (organisms) per 500 milligrams (equivalent to 10 billion CFU per gram).
FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) are added as a prebiotic and soluble fibre to support the health of the probiotics as well as the beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.
What is Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains Used For?
Increasing research demonstrates just how important a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria really is. Of all the cells that comprise the immune system, approximately 70% of those cells are located in the intestines. When pathogens are orally introduced into the body, the cells in the gut provide a major part of the body's natural defences and ability to fight harmful bacteria and viruses. This is true for humans as well as animals. Put simply, healthy gut flora help maintain a strong immune system.
The key to maintaining a healthy balance of flora is to incorporate probiotics into a daily regimen and/or make probiotic-rich foods part of a regular diet. Probiotics are found in lacto-fermented foods, such as fermented sauerkraut (i.e. not the kind made with vinegar or wine). Fermented dairy products such as unsweetened yogurt and kefir also help supply the body with beneficial bacteria.
Why do so many animals require probiotics for optimal health?
As mentioned, the factors that can damage this vital microbiome in the digestive tract range from unhealthy foods to environmental toxins to medications. A single course of antibiotic treatment, though sometimes absolutely necessary, can wipe out the intended harmful bacteria it is meant to destroy but also the beneficial bacteria, leaving the body vulnerable to recurring infections, digestive problems, allergies and more.
Besides the maintenance of good health, there are many conditions that benefit from the use of probiotics:
- Sensitivities, particularly diet-related
- Bowel health and Digestion
- Urinary tract
- Skin disorders
- Physical and emotional stress
- Before and after kennel boarding
- Diet change
- If taking medications, especially antibiotics
Always seek the consultation of your veterinarian, as needed.
A note from the Wellbeing veterinarian...
"I can't stress enough the importance of regular feeding of probiotics to your dog. It might help to think of probiotics as a food and in many ways. They are a part of food that most people eat very little of in their modern diets and something dogs receive little to none of, unless your dog enjoys regular servings of fermented sauerkraut. I know my dog doesn't!
Probiotics are safe and effective and Pet Wellbeing's Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains supplies the correct strains, in the correct potency, to deliver a comprehensive product. Unfortunately, there are too many probiotic products available that offer a shortage of strains (or strains that may not be very useful to pets) in less than ideal quantities. Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains supplies 10 billion organisms per 1.2 grams
Ultimate Probiotic 9 Strains stays freshest if refrigerated after opening.
Probiotics are easily mixed with food, although most dogs will happily lick the powder up, given the naturally pleasant taste. Probiotics are ideally given after a meal but really can be given at any time, including with food. It is far better to feed at any time of day, than not at all, including on an empty stomach. There will be no issues tolerating probiotics on an empty stomach.
My recommendation is to incorporate probiotics into your pet's diet any time and not wait until there is a big need. It is some of the best insurance you can provide for the future health of your pet."
