The intestinal microbiota, which contains more than 400 bacterial species, can be altered by antibiotic use, aging, and premature or caesarean births.1-3 The intestines are critical barriers that selectively allow absorption or promote the excretion of dangerous compounds, and their function depends on a healthy bacterial balance.1,4 The most commonly used probiotics are Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, which are safe for both adults and children.4 They effectively colonize the intestines; however, once their ingestion ends, their counts decrease or disappear.1,4,5 Probiotics promote the presence of beneficial bacteria by competing with pathogens for colonization of the gastrointestinal tract.4 In addition to decreasing the survival of pathogenic bacteria by reducing the pH, probiotics reinforce the epithelial barrier.4 They control permeability by mediating tight junction integrity, and prevent pathogenic adherence to epithelial cells by increasing mucin release on intestinal surfaces.4 Synbiotic products support the growth of bacteria already living in the colon, and enhance the growth and survival of supplemented probiotic strains.1 NPN 80041897 10408 1.

My dog is taking this probiotic recommended by our vet. It is in powder form so it's very easy to feed a dog according to their weight. It is tasteless and can be sprinkle on food.
My 2 year old loves it. I tried it and it tastes like powdered candy
This is a great product and i was VERY excited to see that it is available! will definitely be ordering some asap!
