Why your pet needs Only Natural Pet GI Support
Occasional digestive upsets usually are not a major cause for concern – it’s a rare dog or cat that has never had an episode of vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, or indigestion. But if problems like these are more common with your pet, there’s a good chance that their digestive system is impaired and could use some help.
Only Natural Pet GI Support delivers advanced gastrointestinal support to dogs and cats, aiding digestion with a unique combination of probiotics, vitamins, herbs, health-building co-factors and enzymes. This best selling formula is ideal for animals suffering from chronic or recurrent poor digestion, food allergies, or irritable bowel issues.
Carefully Selected Ingredients
- L. Acidophilus – This well known probiotic helps balance intestinal microflora when it has been disturbed by illness or antibiotic use. Acidophilus helps normalize digestion, which helps to reduce gas, bloating, and bad breath.
- Saccharomyces Boulardii – Clinical research with this probiotic has demonstrated its consistent ability to resolve diarrhea, whether related to acute infection or to chronic bowel dysfunction.
- Slippery Elm Bark – This herb has been traditionally used to soothe the digestive tract and intestinal walls. Slippery elm provides mucilage, which forms a slippery substance when combined with water. Mucilage can reduce irritation of intestinal tissues, promote healthy detoxification in the bowel, and help maintain regular elimination patterns.
- Alfalfa - A rich source of vitamin K, this botanical helps support rebuilding of the intestinal wall and other mucous membranes, and helps the body to produce more of its own beneficial microbials. Alfalfa is known to balance hyperacidity in the digestive tract and has been traditionally used for digestive ailments. Alfalfa also supports the body's normal inflammatory response.
- Licorice Root Extract - Licorice is included in most Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal formulas to balance the other herbs and to promote vitality. An adaptogen, it is believed to bring the entire body into balance and to promote well-being. Licorice has also been used in Western herbal traditions to soothe stomach upsets.
- Proteolytic Enzymes (Pepsin, Papain, and Bromelain) – Enzymes are essential for proper digestion and for assimilation of nutrients found in food. They also support the body's normal inflammatory response.
- Folic Acid - A member of the B complex of vitamins, folic acid aids in protein metabolism and in the formation and growth of healthy nerve cells. Folic Acid helps in the development of antibodies, which help the body fight infection. It also helps protect against intestinal parasites and food poisoning.
- Quercetin – This powerful bioflavonoid supports the body's normal inflammatory response and also provides antihistamine and antioxidant properties. Research with quercetin indicates it may be helpful in preventing stomach ulcers, due to its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the stomach.
- L-Glutamine - An important amino acid with cellular energy producing qualities, L-Glutamine helps protect the lining of the stomach and also may prevent the formation of stomach ulcers.
- Pantothenic Acid - Also known as Vitamin B5, pantothenic acid works with enzymes to aid in metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Vitamin B5 is important in the synthesis of amino acids and fatty acids, and deficiency in this important vitamin is thought to contribute to constipation and stomach upsets.
