FloraComplex

Complementary feed for the support of the intestinal flora containing a high concentration of probiotic cultures.

Antibiotic therapies, deworming or even an infestation of parasites can disrupt the balance of the intestinal flora. The substantial amount of probiotic intestinal cultures in FloraComplex ensures that they survive the passage through the stomach in sufficient numbers and reach the intestines. There, they stabilise the intestinal flora and thus strengthen the immune system. Thanks to the inulin present in FloraComplex, the cultures accumulate in the intestine, where they serve as a nutrient base for various microorganisms.

Ingredients (excerpt)

  • 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.

  • Purple coneflower extract (Echinacea purpurea herba)

    In vivo studies have shown that various Echinacea preparations, when administered orally, have an immune-modulatory effect.

  • 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.
