“The heroes of the gut” and what it is all about…

15. March 2021 — von Madeleine Paul

…you will find all of that out in this blog post. Important vitamins, enzymes and fatty acids are formed in the intestinal microbiome. But even an otherwise relaxed microbiome can become unbalanced because of antibiotic therapy, deworming or the infestation of pathogens. In these cases, the immune system needs support.

The probiotic intestinal cultures in FloraComplex stabilise the gut flora and strengthen the immune system. FloraComplex2 and FloraComplex3 are an addition to the original FloraComplex. Our personal probiotic heroes are Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus acidophilus and the super bacteria Bacillus subtilies.

Enterecoccus faecium is a gram-positive, facultative, anaerobic streptococci bacteria belonging to the enterococcal genus. Enterococcus faecium passes through the stomach unharmed and multiplies rapidly in the gut. Well there, it lowers the pH value by producing lactic acid. Enterococcus faecium also displaces pathogenic germs and stabilises the gut flora.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a gram-positive, facultative, anaerobic bacillus. It is one of the most well-researched probiotics for dog and cat health. The bacteria produces lactic acid, improves the consistency of the faeces, reduces the amount of faecal E. coli bacteria and inhibits the reproduction of clostridia and other enteropathogens. In addition, lactobacillus acidophilus modulates the local immune defence and protects the intestinal epithelium from pathogenic adhesion.

By consuming oxygen and producing certain enzymes, this bacteria strain can create a comfortable environment for beneficial bacteria in the gut. Bacillus subtilis spores survive the low pH value in the stomach and multiply in the intestines. Supplementing the diet with bacillus subtilis reduces the ammonia content and pH of the faeces, improves the consistency of the faeces and supports digestion. In addition, bacillus subtilis helps to achieve a shiny, beautiful coat.

FloraComplex2 and FloraComplex3 contain highly concentrated intestinal cultures with up to three different bacterial strains. Coming in the shape of a powder, the heroes of the intestine can be easily administered and do not need to be stored in the refrigerator. Suitable for pets suffering from allergies and diabetes.
