Research has proven that the digestive system plays a profound role in promoting and sustaining healthy life. It applies to humans and pets alike. However, figuring out what food is truly beneficial to our furry friends can be daunting. They simply cannot tell us and that’s where our cutting-edge microbiome science comes in.
The microbiome is an ecosystem of trillions of microorganisms also called microbes that reside in the gut and are unique to each pet. These microbes (e.g. bacteria, yeast and fungi) can have both positive and negative effects on our pets' digestive health, immune system, and their overall well-being.
The good microbes produce vitamins, short chain fatty acids, help digest food, signals to the brain that can affect mood, and protect your pet from the undesirable bacteria.
Even if your pet is young and looks healthy, there are still things you can do to help promote quality of life by keeping their microbiome healthy.
By having an insight into your pet's microbiome you now can take the guesswork out of their feeding and give them exactly what they need. True nutrition that balances and reinforces their gut microbiome can promote a healthy immune system and support a healthy lifestyle.
