LactoHealth™ Probiotic is a nutritional supplement containing live bacteria, which attaches onto the walls of the digestive tract, collecting valuable fats and proteins for the body’s consumption.
These fats and proteins are the keys for the growth and health of any animal.
By increasing the promotion of healthy bacteria, the animal's overall health is increased, and the cost of feeding is lowered through increased absorbtion.
The word "probiotic" means "for life”.
The use of probiotics for promotion of digestive balance is not a new concept.
The present day world has created new pressures for a pet's digestive balance.
Poor quality food fed to todays urbanised pets creates imbalances, and this is further aggravated by the increased activity and stress related to new activities.
There is an ever increasing use of antibiotics (meaning : against life) and this can easily lead to good bacteria being killed along with the bad. Probiotics ( for life) help to restore the system to balance.
One thing which has not changed in the evolvement of these wild animals to pets, is the their digestive system.
A Probiotic is a product containing viable, lactid-acid-producing bacterial strains (primarily lactobacilli and Enterococcus faecium - see below) which are administered orally, either alone or in feed, with the intent of establishing a favourable intestinal microflora.
The concept behind administration of probiotics is nothing new. In his book, The Prolongation of life, published as long ago as 1908, a Russian scientist named Metchnikoff, attributed the longevity of the population of Bulgarians to their consumption of large quantities of fermented milk products containing, what he identified as Bacillus bulgaricus.
Later researchers identified the organism as Lactobcillus acidophilus - see below. From this early theory, the modern day concept of probiotics has evolved.
