Stress and diet changes can affect the intestinal microflora, and probiotics can help to re-establish levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Probiotics may also improve health conditions in dogs and cats exposed to stress and infections. Research has shown that Enterococcus Faecium is a useful nutritional agent in antidiarrheal therapy.
Studies have shown that supplementing prebiotics such as Fructo Oligosaccharides and Mannan Oligosaccharides can increase the number of friendly bacteria in the colon while reducing the population of harmful bacteria.
Kaolin and pectin act as adsorbents. Adsorbents work by binding to harmful bacteria and toxins and removing them from the gut. Glutamine plays a role in the health of the immune system, digestive tract, and muscle cells. It acts as a mediator in the development of intestinal epithelial cells. Stress on the intestinal cells caused by digestive tract upsets can increase the need for glutamine as the body replaces the cells lining the intestinal tract.
