Description

Animal Essentials’ Plant Enzymes & Probiotics assists in the digestion and absorption of nutrients which are necessary to maintain your pet’s good health. A small, very economical sprinkling each day will relieve extra burden placed on the digestive system by breaking down fats, carbohydrates, cellulose and protein. As your dog or cat’s body ages less enzymes are produced and supplementation is necessary for optimum health. Digestive efficiency can also be reduced by excitement, anxiety or stress of any sort (travel, separation, working stress, etc.). To ensure optimum digestion and health we recommend the addition of this supplement to each meal.

Key Benefits

  • Assists in the digestion and absorption of nutrients which are necessary to maintain your pet’s good health
  • Adding just a sprinkle a day will help the digestive system by breaking down fats, carbohydrates, cellulose and protein
  • Digestive efficiency can be reduced by excitement, anxiety or stress of any sort
  • Contains a blend of plant and microbial produced enzyme, none from animal source
  • For optimum results the supplement should be added to the food and should be moistened shortly before feeding to be effective

Nutritional Info

Ingredients

Alpha Amylase: Helps In the Digestion of Carbohydrates By Helping to Hydrolyze the Alpha 1-4 Glycosidic Linkages of Polysaccharides to Dextrin, D-Glucose, Maltose and Oligosaccharides. Beta Amylase: Works On the End of the Starch Molecules Instead of In the Center, As Does Alpha-Amylase and Results In the Production of Sugars from the Starch Molecules. Proteases: Work On Proteins to Reduce Them to Individual Amino Acids (What They Are Composed Of); Some of These Are Acid Stable Proteases That Start Their Work In the Stomach. Proteins Take the Longest and Are the Most Difficult Food Component to Digest. with Acid Stable Protease the Decomposition Starts Earlier In the Digestive Tract, Thus Providing More Complete Digestion. Lipase: Helps to Metabolize Fats (Triglycerides). the Fats Are Broken Down Into Mono Glycerides, Diglycerides and Glycerol. If Given In Larger Quantities the Lipases Can Enter the Bloodstream and Help Remove Excess Triglycerides from the Arteries and the Veins Improving Circulation. Cellulase: As the Name Implies, Breaks Down Cellulose (Fiber) By Helping to Break Down Cell Walls, Resulting In Both Necessary Solubleand Insoluble Fiber. Hemicellulase: Hemi Cellulose and An Amorphous (Sticky) Type of Cellulose That Form Long Strings As Cellulose, Is Crystalline. This Enzyme Helps Break This Polymer Down Into Its Individual Sugars---Primarily Xylose. Bromelain: Is Extracted from Pineapple (Ananas Comosus) and Is A Protolytic (Protein) Digesting Enzyme, That Helps Break the Proteins Into Oligio Peptides and Amino Acids. Probiotic: Is A Lactic Acid Producing Bacteria, Which Bears Spores. These Organisms Exhibit the Characteristics of Both the Genera Lactobacillus and Bacillus. Because They Are Encapsulated In Spores These Organisms Are Protected from the Environment and Heat. They Are Activated In the Gut By the Hydrochloric Acid, Producing Lactic Acid Bacteria. Treatment with Antibiotics Results In the Killing of These Bacteria, Which Guard Against Yeast Colonies (Candida Yeast Species). These Desirable Bacteria Inhibit the Growth of Putrid Bacterial In the Intestine, Thereby Maintaining the Balance of Intestinal Flora. Calcium Sulfate: the Primary Carrier or Excipient for This Product Is Food Grade and Adds A Minimum Amount of Calcium to the Diet, About 200 mg Per Gm of Product.

  • good product but not great

    By on

    Both my cats notice when the powder is in their food, even after I have stirred it well, and most times, they won't even touch the wet food after I have mixed it in. I can't say that I notice a huge difference, but I will continue to use it and see how it goes. However, I did buy the liquid form which helps with digestion and bad breath and that works like a charm.

  • Plant enzyme and probiotics

    By on

    One of my senior cats age17 was vomiting food or hair ball almost every day. She has been taking a probiotic for almost a year. She is also taking Mirilax for constipation. My vet has tried to put her on digestive enzyme with probiotic but she detects in food and will not eat. I thought I would order another brand and try it. My kitty has accepted it in her food. Vomiting has lessened. I am so happy that she is not getting sick as often. This product is an answer to prayer. PS. My other senior cat is accepting it in her food too.

  • So Far So Good

    Since we started giving this probiotic to our (mixed breed) dog a week ago, she has had a noticable increase in appetite plus a decline in stomach gurgling and accompanying gas. We mix the recommended dosage of powder with a small bit of cooked oatmeal, which our dog loves. Nothing else has helped, so we have been happy with the product!

  • Tasteless (or at least palatable)

    By on

    I needed a probiotic/digestive enzyme for my cat with IBD. He wasn't exhibiting any symptoms but I want to be proactive and needed something tasteless because he is super finicky. He doesn't mind this in his food at all.

  • Probiotics are essential

    By on

    My Service Dog is a Doberman , which have sensitive tummies. It keeps his stool firm and aides with flactulance. It isn't the best probiotic , yet still a 4 out of 5. I also like no Grains or garlic. Too many Companies ignore the FACT being in the field that GARLIC lowers the RBC Count? It should not be in any treat, food or supplement. To add many supplements are not in a Grain Free version which would then reverse the point of helping with allergies. Grain free means ALL GRAIN free or they will itch. At least in my Capones case.

    By on

    I have used this product for years and love it! Glad to see that Chewy has it. It SHOULD be refrigerated after opening to protect the viability of the ingredients. It's on the bottle but in small print & can be missed. I love that it is tasteless & in powder form - so easy to add to my dogs' food.

    The product does say to refrigerate for best use, which I didn't notice at first. Hope it's still viable?? My cats don't seem to mind taste when added to their food. It's a powder so I sprinkle it on dry kibble or mix in canned food. They seem to keep healthy & have healthy elimination.

  • An amazing product that works.

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My 6-month-old kitten has had intestinal issues since I first adopted him at 3 months. It's been a struggle (and a lot of money) trying to figure out what was wrong and after a lot of trial and error over the past 3 months, a week on this product has really improved his digestive troubles. His stools have formed up and he has gained some necessary weight from the digestive enzymes finally allowing him to absorb the nutrients from his food. I'm sure after more time on this product that he will continue to improve!
