Des Moines, IA, United States, 2012/10/16 - Kemin is pleased to offer RESOURCES™ Protegrity™ GI, a clinical-strength health supplement developed to promote a balanced GI system for the overall health and well-being of dogs.
GI issues are a frequent reason why people bring their dogs to a veterinarian. Whether dogs are challenged with digestive problems from stress, boarding, antibiotics, dietary indiscretions or other circumstances, Protegrity GI can be taken to help improve stool quality and help support normal GI health.
Protegrity GI is the only probiotic supplement in the companion animal marketplace that contains the patented probiotic Bacillus subtilis PB6, which is backed by over a decade of research and has been scientifically proven to be safe, stable and beneficial. Isolated from a natural source by Kemin scientists and characterized as a non-GMO strain, PB6 promotes optimum GI health by inhibiting the growth of several key intestinal pathogens, including those associated with diarrhea, to help maintain normal stool quality and GI function. In addition, PB6 does not interfere with the good bacteria that are necessary for optimal GI health. Along with PB6, Protegrity GI contains a proprietary blend of other probiotics and prebiotics to provide complete protection and to help maintain GI health.
When choosing a probiotic, it’s important to remember that not all probiotics have the same activity in the lab or in an animal. While other products in the marketplace may contain Bacillus subtilis species, only Protegrity GI contains the patented and proven PB6 strain. Research has shown that PB6 works better than other Bacillus subtilis strains to help maintain optimal GI balance and to help provide better protection against intestinal pathogens. Protegrity GI also provides a high level of stability, meaning that it maintains its beneficial effects throughout its shelf life.
While many probiotics on the market are taken in powder or tablet form, which are often unfavorable and inconvenient, Protegrity GI is available in a highly palatable chew. Protegrity GI offers dogs an easy-to-consume probiotic—making maintaining gut health easier for dogs, dog owners and veterinarians alike.
Protegrity GI is part of the RESOURCES brand, a complete line of health supplements for dogs and cats. The product line includes supplements for immune and urinary support as well as joint and general wellness. RESOURCES products are available for purchase exclusively through licensed, practicing veterinarians.
