20 Jul Maintaining Digestive Health with Probiotics in Total Supplements
The health of your horse – using Probiotics in Total Supplements
Whether purchasing the Total Supplements Equine or Canine formula, you will find that probiotics are a key ingredient in both products. Naturally found in the digestive tract, probiotics in total supplements are a type of bacteria that helps to promote health and optimize digestion.
While bacteria is usually something that we think of as being bad, there are both good and bad types of bacteria. Good bacteria, such as probiotics, can actually help the body replace the good bacteria that is lost after taking antibiotics. They also help the body balance the good and bad bacteria in order to make the body work as it should.
There are many different types of probiotics, but the two most common are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Lactobacillus, which is found in yogurt and other fermented foods, can help with diarrhea. Bifidobacterium, which is found in some dairy products, may help to ease the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome and other conditions. They also help to move food through the digestive system and may even help to improve oral health, urinary health, prevention of allergies and colds and skin conditions.
To ensure your horse or dog enjoys the greatest benefits possible from the probiotics in Total Supplements, we use a process known as micro-encapsulation to enclose the probiotics in very small sealed capsules. This allows the probiotic to be released slowly by body heat so it can be delivered to the digestive tract where it is best utilized.
