Herbsmith Microflora Plus
Microflora Plus is a natural dog digestive supplement that will keep your pup regular. Even the healthiest of dogs can benefit from a solid probiotic, as Microflora offers nutritional benefits for pups in all seasons of life. From room-clearing toots to the occasional bout of diarrhea, our digestive enzymes & probiotics for dogs can help provide relief for the GI tract (…and for your nose in the case of the gassy pooch!). Watch Willie’s story below for a first-hand look:
One of our most popular supplements, this digestive aid for dogs and cats helps promote proper digestion and bowel health through gut-soothing herbs, digestive enzymes, probiotics and prebiotics. Each of these work in a different way to help support and maintain a properly-functioning digestive system.
Probiotics are “good bacteria," living microorganisms projecting health benefits for their host—namely, digestive systems. They're quantified by the number of colony forming units (CFUs), a term that describes the probiotic's ability to reproduce. The higher the CFU, the better the effect of the probiotic on the body.
Prebiotics of our digestive enzymes
Prebiotics are essentially the food source for probiotics. They are long-chain sugars that encourage the growth of good bacteria in the gut. It's important to have a high-level CFU probiotic that accompanies prebiotics.
Digestive Enzymes, close up and iconified version
Enzymes work to break down nutrients. Some molecules are harder to break down for dogs & cats (for instance, the cellulose found in plant-based foods). Digestive enzymes break down large molecules into smaller, more usable pieces that can be utilized effectively by the digestive tract. Microflora Plus contains digestive enzymes that are specifically geared towards a carnivore’s needs, including elevated levels of amylase and cellulase.
Herbs and our natural remedies
Herbs soothe GI distress naturally, without interfering with the digestive enzymes and probiotics already at work. Ginger, cinnamon, and licorice are all gut-soothing herbs that can be found in Microflora Plus.
