FLORActiv is a combination of nutrients whose synergistic effects support proper nutrition of enterocytes, their regeneration, and a restoration or maintenance of adequate microflora in the gastrointestinal tract. Furthermore, the preparation boosts the immune system and protects against oxidative stress during illness.
L-glutamine – an endogenous amino acid, a primary source of energy for enterocytes. During illness ensures fast regeneration of the gastrointestinal tract restoring its functionality. Stimulates the synthesis of IgA (local immunity) and the production of B and T lymphocytes (general immunity). Maximum absorption and utilization of glutamine by the epithelial cells takes place within a few hours of damage. This amino acid promotes the absorption and utilization of glucose and sodium ions from the intestinal lumen.
Inulin – a prebiotic, soluble dietary fibre, boasts a stimulating effect on the growth of beneficial intestinal microflora, stimulates the proliferation of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Acid metabolites of beneficial microflora prevent the growth of potentially pathogenic bacteria.
Oligofructose – soluble dietary fibre, beneficial for intestinal microflora and the digestive tract. Effectively protects the body against the development of pathogenic bacteria, while promoting proliferation of beneficial bacteria of the Bifidobacterium spp. Oligofructose, by its ability to bind water, promotes a sense of satiety. Inulin and oligofructose, by stimulating the growth and maintaining normal intestinal microflora, are instrumental in the prevention of cancer, mainlycolon cancer in humans.
Vitamin A – essential for the growth and regeneration of gastrointestinal cells, boosts immunity by its involvement in the maturation and differentiation of immune cells, i.e. monocytes, lymphocytes and neutrophils. Its deficiency significantly undermines phagocytic activity of macrophages.
Green tea extract (Epigallocatechin Gallate) – boasts antimicrobial and antioxidant properties and enhances the treatment of inflammatory diseases. By increasing the number of T cells boosts the immune system. The antioxidant effect of green tea extract is relied on in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies.
Zinc (in the form of amino acid chelate) – boosts the immune system and accelerates the regeneration of the gastrointestinal epithelium. Exhibits strong antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties. The anti-inflammatory and immuno-stimulating properties of zinc are relied on in treating inflammatory and autoimmune diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
Recommended daily dose of the product to be given according to the body weight of the animal:
• for every 10 kg b.w. – 1 small flat scoop (1.6 g)
• for every 20 kg b.w. – 1 large flat scoop (3.3 g)
For smaller animals the portion can be divided proportionally to their weight. It is recommended to mix product with kibble, wet feed or water.
