four leaf rover

Why do dogs eat dirt?

PROTECT supports immune function and a healthy digestive tract. With proven healthy soil-based organisms and natural prebiotics. In fact, current studies are underway to prove that supplementing with healthy soil bacteria decreases anxiety in dogs with severe cases. A healthy gut is integral to a healthy body and mind. 

Benefits 

PROTECT is a daily supplement for both healthy dogs and dogs with digestive/immune issues.

  • Supports a healthy gut with hardy, soil-based probiotics
  • Helps eliminate Candida and harmful yeast
  • Rich in antioxidants to support the immune system and decrease inflammation
  • Feeds beneficial bacteria in the gut
  • Helps protect the brain

How It Works

PROTECT is a daily supplement with ingredients that can target your dog's immune system and brain including:

Soil-based Probiotics:
For digestive health. Better at surviving the stomach acids than traditional probiotics. 

Saccharomyces boulardii:
A healthy, probiotic yeast used to treat diarrhea and fight off disease-causing bacteria and yeast in the gut. 

Certified Organic Wild Blueberry Powder:
Helps maintain brain function and fight oxidative stress.

Bentonite Clay, Chlorella, Humic & Fulvic Acid:
Help remove toxins and dangerous heavy metals from the body.

Cabbage Juice Powder, Organic Dandelion & Burdock Root:
A healthy range of natural, whole-food pre and probiotics.

Ingredients

Soil-based probiotics (SBOs) are species of bacteria found in soil. Unlike  Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, most SBOs are spore-forming. This means they can form a hard coating that protects them from heat, stomach acids and most antibiotics. In fact, many antibiotics are made from SBOs.

The SBO's protective coating means they don't need to be refrigerated. 

And unlike most probiotics that come from dairy (like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium), the SBOs in PROTECT are hypoallergenic. That's good news for dogs with dairy allergies. 

The SBOs in PROTECT have been well widely used and researched and found to be effective:

Bacillus coagulans

This friendly little SBO is often found in fermented foods such as sauerkraut. It's well-studied and has a marked effect on inflammatory digestive conditions. Research shows it can help:

  •    •   Solve IBS and digestive issues
  •    •   Balance gut bacteria
  •    •   Improve immune function
  •    •   Stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines
  •    •   Stop the spread of cancer cells

Bacillus subtilis

This SBO is an inhabitant in healthy guts. Even before antibiotics were developed, B. subtilis was used to treat urinary tract infections and GI diseases.

B. subtilis helps the immune system product immunoglobulin A (IgA). This antibody is often low in dogs with autoimmune disease. It also bolsters the gut lining, which prevents toxins, bacteria and undigested food from entering the bloodstream and triggering an immune response. 

B. subtilis also ferments vitamin K and produces 12 strong, natural antibiotics that fight harmful bacteria

It's a powerhouse probiotic with a proven track record!

 

Bacillus indicus

This SBO is extremely unique ... and useful! B. indicus produces large amounts of carotenoids, which are the yellow and orange pigments found in plants. These carotenoids are powerful antioxidants ... in a more bioavailable form than those from plants.

B. indicus also produces B vitamins, vitamin K2 and quinols for extra health-boosting results. Dogs with unbalanced guts (dysbiosis) won't have enough friendly probiotics to this this.
