FloraComplex²

Supplementary feed for cats and dogs. Natural support of the intestinal flora and the immune system with highly concentrated intestinal micro-cultures. Suitable for pets with allergies and diabetics.

Two bacterial strains for a healthy intestinal flora

Important vitamins, enzymes and fatty acids are produced in the intestinal microbiome. Nevertheless, even an ordinarily relaxed microbiome can become unbalanced: Through antibiotic therapies, deworming or the infestation of pathogens. The probiotic intestinal cultures contained in FloraComplex stabilize the intestinal flora and consequently strengthen the immune system.

Ingredients (excerpt)

  • Inulin (prebiotic)

    Inulin belongs to the genus of prebiotics, i.e. oligosaccharides, which are not digestible by the body's own enzymes. Therefore, it is a fermentable substrate for the bacteria of the intestinal flora. Inulin can promote the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria such as Enterococcus faecium - whereas pathogenic germs do not benefit. Consequently, inulin is recognized as having a positive effect on the immune system. Organic acids are released when intestinal bacteria such as Enterococcus faecium metabolize inulin. These acids have a stabilizing effect on the intestinal micro-biota. Studies conducted on puppies have shown that inulin added to the food, reduced colonization of Salmonellae.

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus (Probiotic Bacterial Cultures)

    Lactobacillus acidophilus is a facultative anaerobic, gram positive rod bacterium. It is one of the most researched probiotics for dog and cat health. The bacterium produces lactic acid, improves fecal consistency and supports the maintenance of healthy intestinal flora. In addition, Lactobacillus acidophilus modulates local immune defences and protects the intestinal epithelium from pathogenic adhesions.

  • Enterococcus faecium (Probiotic bacterial cultures)

    Probiotic cultures such as the Enterococcus strain exert an inhibitory effect on pathogenic intestinal bacteria. The cultures influence the binding ability of these intestinal bacteria by altering the luminal pH. Competition between probiotics and pathogenic bacteria for binding sites on the intestinal epithelium contributes towards the inhibitory effect: Unwanted microorganisms are ousted in favor of the natural intestinal flora.
