Now let’s talk pet probiotics, shall we?

If you search up probiotics all you get is the same old pet probiotics with the same old Lactobacillus strains. Now, I’m not saying Lactobacillus is a bad strain of bacteria to use, it’s just that Bacillus strains are so much better!! And here’s why…(I preach but I also try to back up what I say)

First, and probably the most important fact is, Bacillus species are able to withstand high heat and harsh conditions, like acidic pH in the stomach. This sets them apart from other probiotic strains. Why is this so important you ask? Because it just is! LOL, I’m kidding.

Bacillus species produces spores, or endospores. The formation of these particular, incredibly robust, Bacillus strains (Bacillus coagulans, B. subtilis, B. licheniformis), like the ones found in Mia’s Paws Daily Probiotic Blend, produce spores that are resistant to many food processing conditions, including heat. Also, these crazy little endospores can pass through the stomach and into the intestines where they are able to grow and multiply as normal flora, and without being destroyed by the immune system.  Now isn’t that so cool? Well maybe it’s a little boring to you but not to me! I love science. And I love animals! Okay so this is also important because our stomach acids are so harsh they usually begin to break down or even kill some bacteria. Luckily, this isn’t the case with Bacillus, these spores can survive harsh environmental conditions.

Next, the bacterial spores of Bacillus, such as the ones featured in Mia’s Paws Daily Probiotic Blend, produce antioxidant compounds in the form of carotenoids. These can aid in removing free radicals from the body.  This is the good part, these carotenoids can help in preventing oxidative stress on the body which can then lead to diseases like diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic diseases. Wam, Bam, thank you Ma’am!!

Who would of known that something so small that you can’t see with the human eye, can be so important and vital to protecting your pets health!!

Now, probiotics are amazing in maintaining good health but what makes them even better is mixing them with PREBIOTICS!! Prebiotic fibres help feed and strengthen probiotic bacteria. Taking the two in combination can help make your probiotics more effective. Prebiotics don’t actually contain bacteria. They nourish and fuel to help bacteria grow. All prebiotics are a type of dietary fibre called inulin. Inulin is a prebiotic that can be used as food for gut bacteria. AMAZING!!!

All I’m saying is Bacillus strains of probiotics rock!!! Adding prebiotics to the formula just makes it that much better!!! And if you love and cherish your pet like I do then you’ll more than likely need to try Mia’s Paws Daily Probiotic Blend. Help boost your pets immune activity, protect them from pathogens, and improve their overall gut health. I mean, Bacillus is the choice of probiotic ingredients for food, nutraceuticals and pharmaceutical applications, so give your pets the probiotic of choice. Mia’s Paws Daily Probiotic Blend, nothing but the best for your pets!
