Powerful blend of prebiotics and probiotics designed to stop occasional diarrhea flare-ups.
Gut Maintenance Plus Active Ingredients:
- Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii)
- MannanOligoSaccharides (MOS)
Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii pronounced "ess-boo-lar-dee") is a yeast-based probiotic first described in 1920 and the subject of over 250 peer-reviewed articles. S. boulardii has been shown to resolve diarrhea caused by antibiotics. (Czeruka et al.). More recently, researchers found that in dogs with chronic enteropathy, adding S. boulardii to the standard treatment resolved diarrhea within 5 days. (D'Angleo et al.)
Because probiotics like S. boulardii do better when accompanied by the food they like to eat (prebiotics) Gut Maintenance Plus also contains MOS. MOS is derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (commonly known as brewer’s yeast) and has been shown to improve intestinal health and work synergistically with S. boulardii. (Spring et al.).
PreforPro is a prebiotic bacteriophage cocktail that prepares the gut to ensure healthy probiotic bacteria have room to flourish. Developed and patented by Deerland Enzymes, more than 20 studies have been performed to confirm the safety and efficacy of PreforPro in humans.
AnimalBiome has been recommending these ingredients to our customers since 2018 with very positive results and created this proprietary blend to make it easier for our customers to get all three ingredients in one bottle at doses more appropriate for cats and dogs.
