Protexin multi-strain Probiotic from International Animal Health Products

Supplier News

Many Probiotics consist of a single strain of bacteria, but Protexin multi-strain probiotic, from International Animal Health Products , consists of seven different naturally occurring bacteria and two yeasts.

Years of trials and research has provided Protexin multi-strain Probiotic with a special “protection” to make sure the highest amounts of bacteria survive hostile conditions of the crop or stomach to make it into the gut where they will work for the benefit of the animal.

Protexin is the only registered Probiotic approved for dispensation to birds and animals. 

What is a Probiotic and how does it work?
There are billions of bacteria and yeasts in the digestive systems in the digestive systems of all animals and birds. These are known as Microflora.

Microflora are an essential element in the health of any animal as they; 

  • Aid digestion
  • Break down cellulose and other indigestible substances
  • Help the synthesis and absorption of vitamins and minerals
  • Stimulate the immune system and prevent the proliferation of pathogens. (Pathogens reduce nutrient absorption, animal performance and can cause disease)

Some benefits of using Protexin multi-strain Probiotic include:

Improved growth in farm animals
This is generally regarded as resulting from the suppression of a subclinical infection by a growth depressing micro-organism; such a mechanism has been described for antibiotic growth promotion.

Improved utilisation of food
This is achieved by increasing the effectiveness of existing digestive processes and/or by promoting digestion of substances that were previously indigestible.

Reduced intestinal dysfunction 
Includes the repression of pathogens (E.Coli, Salmonella, and Aeromonas spp) and control and treatment of scouring or diarrhoea.

Improved health
Generated by increasing resistance to infectious diseases either by direct antagonism or by stimulating immunity.

Establishment/re-establishment of Microflora
For creation of healthy gut Microflora in juvenile animals or re-establishment of gut Microflora subsequent to antibiotic use.
