Gentle Digest 60 caps by Ark Natural is specially formulated probiotic to give your pet's digestive system the boost it needs! Gentle Digest provides a source of beneficial intestinal bacteria and helps encourage their growth. All mammals have numerous beneficial bacteria living in their digestive tracts, including humans. Animals provide food and a warm home for these bacteria, and in exchange the bacteria help us digest our food, absorb nutrients, and eliminate toxic substances. Pets naturally eat fresh raw food, which provides such beneficial bacteria. Therefore, pets eating any type of pet food or cooked food may suffer from a lack of this beneficial bacteria.
What are the benefits of Gentle Digest? Restores digestive balance; alleviates minor constipation and diarrhea. Aids digestion and absorption of processed pet foods. Pets may also suffer digestive difficulties due to wheat, corn, soy, sugar, and starch commonly added to pet foods. Normal levels of lactobacilli in the intestines are known to enhance the absorption of essential trace elements including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron in both animals and humans. What special ingredients does Gentle Digest feature? Gentle digest contains patented Lactobacillus bacteria sporogenes. These are microencapsulated lactobacillus spores which are resistant to heat and stomach acid. Sporogenes germinate within the optimum growth environment of the intestines to deliver a maximum concentration of viable (live) lactobacilli. Many probiotic products on the market for both humans and pets are useless because they contain virtually no live bacteria. Gentle digest also contains fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) from chicory root. FOS are small sugar polymers that serve as preferred foods for lactobacilli, hence encouraging their growth. When should I use Gentle Digest? If pets have constipation. If pets are taking antibiotics. Antibiotics also kill beneficial bacteria, so Gentle Digest can be used safely along with antibiotics to re-establish digestive balance. Use for aging animals who have difficulty digesting and absorbing food. If pets have occasional diarrhea, flatulence, or foul smelling stools.
Lactospore Sporogenes (minimum 50 million live spores), Chicory (Source of FOS) 50 mg.
Gentle Digest should not be used daily for healthy pets with no digestive problems. If pets have vomiting, diarrhea, or foul smelling stools from more than 2 consecutive days, please consult a veterinarian.
