Postbiotics are the substances produced by live bacteria in the gut that produce beneficial effects in the body.
As science progresses, we are seeing more evidence reinforcing the inclusion of DynavytePets MicroBiome Support (MBS) into the functional food of dogs and cats. DynavytePets MBS provides prebiotics to feed the good bacteria, probiotics to support good bacteria and competitively exclude bad bacteria, and postbiotics for a healthy body.
Bacillus subtilis (Natto) the active ingredient in Dynavyte MBS is alive in spore form and once it germinates is known to produce many beneficial substances that may assist health and wellness. These substances or postbiotics include:
Bacteriocin-like substances competing against bad bacteria
Vitamin K2 for immunity and bone health and strength
Enzymes to break down food and aid absorption
Surfactin a superior antiviral
Iturin an antifungal
B vitamins for added health benefits
All these substances are now classified as postbiotics and are produced in response to the appropriate gut contents such as diet and other bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Gut health in dogs and cats is seen as a major determinant of long-term health.
