Good Bacteria Why Your Pets Need Probiotics

Probiotics are so important to good health. Do you know why and how they work? They help boost the immune system especially needed for dogs that have health problems such as canine lymphoma like my Curley.

There are quite a number of products from all kind of yogurts and even  pet foods which contains probiotics, known as “friendly” or “healthy” bacteria. When they are used in pet food it is referred to as “direct fed microbials”.

Everyone’s digestive system including our pets contains millions of helpful bacteria (like Probiotics) and of course those that are not favorable. The “direct fed microbials” found in Life’s Abundance can help the immune system adapt to internal changes within the body and thus naturally support good health.

Did you know that whenever you or your pet takes antibiotics, it kills all of the bacteria, regardless of their ultimate effect on the body (by providing healthy functions versus unhealthy outcomes)?  That is why it is often recommended that you eat yogurt while taking antibiotics.  This is to re-establish the healthy bacteria in the GI tract and to avoid intestinal distress, both during the course of treatment and in the days immediately following completion of an antibiotic therapy.

Helpful bacteria can have several positive effects on one’s body, including:

• converting foods into vitamins and energy
• fighting the unhealthy microorganisms
• by stimulating the immune system
• promoting the health of the gut lining

Adding direct fed microbials to pet food can help a dog or cat’s natural digestive system to work more effectively  allowing the pet to get more nutrition from food because they help to ensure a healthy intestine.

Life’s Abundance Pet food formulas contain multiple types of direct fed microbials, all of which are guaranteed to be viable after cooking so they can take up “residence” in the GALT. To protect these beneficial bacteria, they micro-encapsulate the direct fed microbials prior to cooking in their foods. This process ensures that they will survive in order to establish and maintain healthy digestive system cultures.

Know your options: I am trying to learn as much as I can about boosting immune function and eliminating tumors and restoring my pets body’s natural, healthy metabolic balance. Cancer is not an infectious disease, it is simply a symptom of cell division gone wrong, and it is something the human body can heal if you give it the right tools and I hope to find them.

    Why We Need Probiotic Supplements

    Our bodies are designed to function best with millions of friendly probiotic bacteria living in our intestinal tract. In the past, we replaced the probiotics in our system by constantly through eating organic vegetables grown in dirt that was rich with soil-based organisms or drinking raw milk straight from the cow. I myself remember walking into the garden, pulling up young carrots, brushing as much dirt off them as possible and eating them on the spot. Think of the probiotics that were going into my system before I could wash them down the kitchen drain or boil them for 15 to 20 minutes.

    Today we need probiotic supplements because there are so many influences that prevent us from getting the probiotics our bodies need.

    * Today, at least in the United States, many people eat a horrible diet composed of highly processed foods that are filled with chemicals and simple sugars and carbohydrates. Potato chips and Oreo’s are utterly devoid of anything living as are most of the boxed and prepared foods sold in the grocery stores.
    * Because of the modern agricultural practices, such as the heavy use of pesticides and fertilizers, the soil-based microorganisms are no longer living in the dirt of most farms. We need probiotic supplements to replace what is missing in our food.
    * The use of antibiotics (remember the “anti” means “against” biotics) directly kills the all bacteria in our intestinal tract.
    * Drinking chlorinated water destroys our intestinal flora. The reason we put chlorine in the water is because it is able to kill bacteria and, unfortunately, it gets the good ones along with the bad when we drink it.
    * The medical treatment of radiation and chemotherapy also destroys our intestinal flora as well as damaging our immune systems. Any course of chemotherapy absolutely must be followed with heavy doses of probiotic supplements.
    * Farm animals are continuously fed antibiotics to keep diseases down. When people eat them they also are taking in these antibiotics which then harm the beneficial bacteria in their systems.
    * Many people who are concerned with health use enemas and colonics for detoxification. These practices can wash some of the good bacteria out of their systems.
    * Alcoholic beverages tend to harm probiotics by killing them directly, encouraging harmful bacteria and yeast overgrowth.

    I’ve dedicated my life to natural healthy organic foods, supplements and helping to educate consumers on what we need in our bodies and what we should avoid at all cost. Most consumer don’t know most of the things that can keep them healthy. With the very unhealthy mass produced, genetically modified, chemically enhanced foods and supplements on the market, consumers need the proper information to start avoiding all those products. When there is enough demand for high quality foods and supplements, then we will be able to tackle America’s Health problems. Until then, it will be very hard to fight big business and stop them from adding harmful ingredients and making products by un-natural mean just to stretch them further and last longer in-order to protect their bottom line. We have the power as the consumer and it’s all about spreading small amounts of information like this article to help educate everyone.

I hope to write another article soon and keep posting great content in blogs like this.

    Thanks and keep up the great work!!
