Four Leaf Rover PROTECT - Soil Based Probiotics for Dogs (156g)
PROTECT, now with even MORE beneficial probiotics, is a daily supplement used to support your dog's immune system and enhances brain function.
PROTECT is great for healthy and unhealthy dogs alike. Rich in antioxidants, this soil-based probiotic helps support the immune system and feeds beneficial bacteria.
SUPPORTS A HEALTHY GUT
Soil-based probiotics are better at surviving the stomach acids than traditional probiotics for improved gut health support.
Helps absorb nutrients from food and remove pesticides and dangerous heavy metals from the body.
ENHANCES BRAIN FUNCTION
A six year study showed blueberries helped delay mental aging in humans by up to 2.5 years.
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 widely used and researched and found to be effective.
Bacillus Coagulans is a friendly little SBO 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 is an SBO 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 produce 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!
Saccharomyces Boulardii is considered to be a probiotic but it's actually yeast. But don't confuse it with brewer's yeast!
This little guy loves to attach to heavy metals and eat them. Dogs are constantly exposed to pesticides, vaccines, and harmful heavy metals found in food.
It is a healthy way to remove toxins before they travel to the organs and harm your dog.
It is also used to treat and prevent diarrhoea, including infectious diarrhoea, such as parvovirus,and the overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the gut.
This friendly yeast has also been shown toeffectively fight yeast overgrowth and Candida.
Organic Wild Blueberry Powder is made from blueberries, the most nutrient-dense berries. Plus, they're one of the richest sources of special antioxidants called polyphenols.
Wild blueberries are richer in antioxidants than highbush blueberries.
The antioxidants in blueberries have been shown to fight DNA damage, a common precursor to diseases like cancer. In one study, blueberries reduced oxidative DNA damage by 20%. And powdered blueberries performed just as well as fresh ones.
Blueberries can also maintain brain function and improve memory, thanks to their antioxidant activity. In fact, a six-year study showed blueberries delayed mental aging in humans by up to 2.5 years.
Bentonite Clay comes from volcanic ash. It has a unique structure that can absorb negatively charged toxins, including pesticides, lead, mercury, and other heavy metals.
Over time, toxins can build up in your dog's body and interfere with organ function. Bentonite clay has been found to bind to these toxins and help cleanse the body. It can also fight harmful bacteria and encourage the growth of friendly bacteria. This also helps your dog's gut absorb more nutrients.
Chlorella pyrenoidosa is a species of single-celled green algae. It's extremely nutritious and offers health-boosting properties:
- Helps detox by removing heavy metals and other toxins from the body and brain
- Helps the immune system produce more antibodies, which fight foreign invaders in the body
- Rich in antioxidants
Organic Dandelion Root Powder is another antioxidant powerhouse. But it's also rich in prebiotics. Prebiotics are compounds that are fermented by probiotics. They basically feed the healthy (probiotic) bacteria populations in your dog's gut.
Organic Burdock Root Powder is also rich in healthy prebiotics. It's rich in fibre, including inulin and FOS. They inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the gut and improve immune function. Burdock root can also lower blood sugar.
Fulvic acid is released into the soil as organic matter decomposes. The resulting substance supports your dog's body in many ways:
- Rich in minerals (which is important because most dogs are deficient in minerals)
- Helps the body absorb nutrients from food
- Naturally high in antioxidants and electrolytes
- Can balance the microbiome and restore gut health
- A natural source of pre and probiotics
- Reacts with free radicals, heavy metals, and toxins and helps eliminate them from the body
Humic acid comes from the earth just like Fulvic Acid and SBOs. It's also rich in minerals and trace minerals. Because it's getting harder to get enough minerals from food, adding them to the diet is part of a solid health plan for every dog.
Humic acid also helps protect cells from viruses and removes pesticides from the body.
