Soil-based probiotics (SBOs) are species of bacteria found in soil. Unlike Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, most SBOs are spore-forming. This means they can form a hard coating that protects them from heat, stomach acids and most antibiotics. In fact, many antibiotics are made from SBOs.
The SBO's protective coating means they don't need to be refrigerated.
And unlike most probiotics that come from dairy (like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium), the SBOs in PROTECT are hypoallergenic. That's good news for dogs with dairy allergies.
The SBOs in PROTECT have been well widely used and researched and found to be effective:
This friendly little SBO is often found in fermented foods such as sauerkraut. It's well-studied and has a marked effect on inflammatory digestive conditions. Research shows it can help:
• Solve IBS and digestive issues
• Balance gut bacteria
• Improve immune function
• Stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory cytokine
• Stop the spread of cancer cells
This SBO is an inhabitant in healthy guts. Even beforeantibiotics were developed, B. subtilis was used to treat urinary tract infections and GI diseases.
B. subtilis helps the immune system product immunoglobulin A (IgA). This antibody is often low in dogs with autoimmune disease. It also bolsters the gut lining, which prevents toxins, bacteria and undigested food from entering the bloodstream and triggering an immune response.
B. subtilis also ferments vitamin K and produces 12 strong, natural antibiotics that fight harmful bacteria.
It's a powerhouse probiotic with a proven track record!
This SBO is extremely unique ... and useful! B. indicus produces large amounts of carotenoids, which are the yellow and orange pigments found in plants. These carotenoids are powerful antioxidants ... in a more bioavailable form than those from plants.
B. indicus also produces B vitamins, vitamin K2 and quinols for extra health-boosting results. Dogs with unbalanced guts (dysbiosis) won't have enough friendly probiotics to this this.
