The importance of bacteria to immune defense and health
Stomax/prebiotics re-instate balance and the healthy bacteria flora in the intestines. Good intestinal flora has been proven to be of major importance to the well being of the body, while a spoiled bacteria flora has been proven of significance for the propagation of disease in both the intestines and the rest of the body. Beneficial bacteria prevent the growth of injurious bacteria that form toxins and can damage the intestines. The bacteria flora of dogs is more sensitive than that of humans. Consequently, it is especially important to establish a balanced bacteria flora and help the beneficial bacteria increase in number. This can be achieved by using Stomax as an additive.
WORKS IN THREE DIFFERENT WAYS – SIMULTANEOUSLY!
1. Normalizes defecation
Stomax contains healthy fiber that is important to the digestion. When your dog or cat eats sufficient fiber, intestinal movements are made more efficient and it becomes easier for the intestines to transport waste products out of the body. This is particularly important if the stomach is a little hard and motions are difficult. At the same time, these fibers are effective when defecation is looser than normal, because they absorb any excess liquid in the intestines.
2. Stimulates beneficial bacteria and micro-organisms
Stomax contains the effective and well-documented prebiotic inulin/oligofructose that contributes to more efficient use of minerals and nutrients from the daily food intake.
Inulin/oligofructose has a broad spectrum effect. This means that it is beneficial to a large area of the intestines. Moreover, Stomax contains yeast fibre that functions as a nutritive additive for the important benign organisms that live in the large intestine where nutrition is obtained from food. The yeast fibres also stimulate the intestines muscular action, otherwise called peristalsis.
3. Protects and supports
Lecithin is a natural fatty acid that is important to digestion. In Stomax lecithin has two important functions. One, it binds up water and the nutritious fibers forming a jelly that protects the sensitive membrane in the stomach and intestines. Two, it is important for the optimum function of the pancreas, something that is essential for both the digestion and the metabolism. When your dog or cat receives a dose of Stomax, the amino acid lysine is released in the intestine. Lysine strengthens the digestive process and helps the natural immune system to remain strong and effective. Stomax is additionally enriched with B vitamins for strength and stamina.
Important facts about Stomax®
Stomax is based on a broad fibre complex and lecithin. Stomax stimulates effective digestion. Lecithin is a phospholipid extracted from GMO-free soya and which strengthens the protective effect of the stomach lining. Fibres (PV70) are carefully selected for their unique and beneficial properties. They have been extracted from potatoes and have an extremely high water holding ability (important with abnormally loose faeces) and a high proportion of galactose and cellulose. I kilogram of Stomax is equal to the fibre provided by 50 kg of potatoes!
Stomax contains a unique yeast culture that provides nutrients to the micro-organisms in the blind gut and the large intestine. This helps to strengthen the natural flora essential to normal stomach and intestinal functions. A balanced micro flora enables the dog to make good use of the nutrition obtained from food. Prebiotica (inuline/oligofructose) works together with the intestinal flora yeast culture and contributes to optimum balance. Stomax is enriched with the important B vitamins and the amino acid, metionine.
