NEKTON-Biotic-Dog is a probiotic feed supplement for the stabilization of the intestinal flora of dogs. With lactic acid forming bacteria, which also occur naturally in the intestinal wall of dogs, favoring there a healthy digestion of food. Natural mannan-oligosaccharides and fructans support through its prebiotic effect a positive composition of the intestinal flora. Ideal for indigestion and for regeneration after illness or antibiotic treatments. The probiotic substances in NEKTON-Biotic-Dog are also proven to increase the body’s immune defense.
Dogs suffer frequently from indigestion. The causes are varied and often not even known exactly. Many problems with digestion occur during diseases or after antibiotic treatments, for example. Also new allergies as well as food intolerances are sometimes cited as the cause. Often the colon is sensitive to stress, as occurs during transport of the dogs or in situations which demand from the dog great effort and Attention.
As a result of these factors, the balance of the intestines is often attacked. The pH-value and the composition of the important intestinal flora can change, whereupon the organism reacts sensitive. Whatever, a constant environment in the intestine is important for its function – the best possible utilization of the food. Last but not least, a healthy gut is also important for the well-being and can affect the behavior of the dog positively.
NEKTON-Biotic-Dog contributes to the stabilization of the intestinal flora and draws on purely natural ingredients. To prevent acidification, which favors the growth of harmful bacteria in the gut, the contained rice starch increases the pH-value and thus creates a more favorable environment for the beneficial bacteria, including Enterococcus faecium. These bacteria contained in NEKTON-Biotic-Dog belong to the natural intestinal flora of humans and dogs and support their regeneration. Rice starch is also 100 % absorbed in the dog intestines, it is energy-rich and does not burden the organism.
As an important (prebiotic) food for beneficial intestinal bacteria, NEKTON-Biotic-Dog contains indigestible carbohydrates from the cell walls of yeast (mannan-oligosaccharides), as well as from plant by-products (fructans). The cell walls of yeast also provide so-called beta-glucans which bind harmful substances in the intestine that can subsequently be excreted.
Another probiotic substance is inulin which is contained in dandelions. Dandelion soothes the intestines and has a choleretic, diuretic and an appetizing effect. The contained sesquiterpenlactones but also the high potassium content of the plant is responsible for the diuretic effect. Further, dandelion has a stimulating effect on the metabolism and is anti-inflammatory and spasmolytic.
Nekton-Biotic-Dog also contains a moderate amount of yeast to supply the organism with numerous micronutrients such as various B-vitamins. Thus, a possible deficit of these nutrients, caused e.g. by diarrhea, is counteracted.
Of course, NEKTON-Biotic-Dog does not contain sugar and preserving agents and is free of gluten.
