Following a treatment with antibiotics it is highly recommended to optimize your pets nutrition with high levels of probiotic cultures and immunostimulatory substances. The composition of natural ingredients and biological microcultures in FloraComplex stabilize the natural intestinal micoflora and strengthen the immune system of your dog.
Professional intestinal repair with the optimal concentration of probiotic intestinal microcultures
FloraComplex for dogs has the highest concentration of probiotic micro-cultures available for pet use. FloraComplex contains on average 100 times more probiotic microcultures in a daily dose than other comparable products. The inulin in Floracomplex ensures that the intestine is sustainably enriched with probiotic cultures.
Probiotic intestinal cultures (Enterococcus faecium)
Enterococcus faecium cultures have a positive effect on the intestinal microflora. They colonize the intestine and help to naturally build up the intestinal flora. This increases the paracellular density of the intestinal epithelium and reduces the secretion tendency. The regulation of intestinal peristalsis is additionally supported by Enterococcus faecium cultures. Probiotic cultures such as the Enterococcus strain also have an inhibitory effect on pathogenic intestinal bacteria: The cultures influence the binding capacity of the pathogenic intestinal bacteria by changing the luminal pH value. The competitive situation between probiotic and pathogenic bacteria around binding sites or receptors on the intestinal epithelium also contributes to the inhibitory effect. This is particularly important in giardiosis, as the giardia are displaced in favor of the natural intestinal flora. The cultures support the intestine in the production of a biofilm that can prevent the attachment and penetration of pathogenic agents into the intestinal mucosa.
Purple coneflower extract (Echinacea purpurea herba)
In-vivo studies have shown that several echinacea compounds have immuno-modulating effects when administered orally or parenterally. This is due to an increase of the number of spleen cells and leucocytes as well as the activation of the phagozytosis performance of the granulocytes.
Inulin belongs to the genus of prebiotics, i.e. oligosaccharides, which are not digestible by the body's own enzymes and thus represent a fermentable substrate for the bacteria of the intestinal flora. Inulin can promote the growth of beneficiary intestinal bacteria i.e. enterococcus faecium. On the other hand, pathogenic germs are not supported. Because of this, inulin is said to have a positive effect on the immune system. When inulin is metabolised by bacteria like enterococcus faecium, organic acids are released. These have a stabilizing effect on the intestinal microbiotica. Infection research on puppies reveal that using inulin as a food additive reduced the colonisation of salmonella.
