~ Multi Strain Probiotic Blend
Probiotics enhance the immune response of the digestive tract. Lactic acid bacteria produce lactic acid which inhibits yeast growth by lowering intestinal pH and blocks the receptors or adhesion sites of pathogens, creating a barrier against infectious organisms. 30 billion allergen-free CFU (colony forming units) to defend against harmful gut bacteria by repopulating the digestive system with friendly bacteria.
Papain, a substance derived from the unripe tropical fruit papaya, is a proteolytic enzyme. Papain helps the body break down protein foods, like animal meat, and is commonly used to support the improvement of gastrointestinal dysfunction and digestive issues. Chemicals in Papain may increase immune system function and they may also promote the release of natural chemicals that attack tumor cells. Papain is anti-parasitic.
~ Larch Arabinogalactan
Prebiotic Larch Arabinogalactan is a Larch tree extract that supports colon health. It is often used as an effective adjunct to cancer therapies due to its ability to stimulate the immune system and block metastasis of tumor cells. Its uses in people include chronic fatigue syndrome, viral hepatitis, HIV/ AIDS, and autoimmune diseases. It is also commonly used for infections.
Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme mixture derived from the stem, fruit, and juice of the pineapple plant. When taken with food, it aids in the proper digestion and absorption of food as it breaks down protein. When it is taken between meals, it is absorbed intact and circulates through the body where it exhibits anti-inflammatory and pain relieving actions. It is beneficial for the cardiovascular and circulatory systems, as well as the digestive system.
Betaine HCI is a delivery form of Hydrochloric Acid. In the stomach, the Hydrochloride Acid converts pepsinogen to pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down protein. When taken as a digestive supplement, Betaine HCI promotes the production of additional Hydrochloric Acid in the stomach which may aid digestion and assist in the absorption of proteins, calcium, iron and B12.
~ Porcine Pancreatin
Porcine Pancreatin 8X USP isa mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by the exocrine cells of the porcine pancreas. It has eight times more enzyme activity than the USP standard. This product provides protease, lipase and amylase to assist in digestion and to improve the absorption of fat, protein, and energy. When taken away from food, it exerts anti-inflammatory and pain relieving actions.
Q. How much to feed my pet and how long will a 41g jar last?

< 2.5 kg: 1/16 tsp for 280 days
2.5 - 7kg: 1/8 tsp for 140 days
7 - 18kg: 1/4 tsp for 70 days
19 - 27kg: 1/2 tsp for 35 days
27 - 40kg: 3/4 tsp for 23 days
> 40kg: 1 tsp for 18 days
Q. Do I need to feed this to my pet long-term?
A. No, Healthy Gut helps the body to correctly digest food and provides pre and probiotics. It is best used in rotation with Gut Soothe and Love Bugs as part of a comprehensive balanced-gut health care plan.
We have customers that feel that their pets do better when they use Healthy Gut on an ongoing basis. It could be because the pets have a compromised ability to produce the proper amounts of their own digestive enzymes.
Benefits of Healthy Gut include increased energy and lessened arthritic pain.
Q. Can I use this if I feed dry food?
A. You absolutely can! When feeding commercial kibble or processed food of any kind, adding digestive enzymes will help the body to “break down” the dry food and increase nutrient absorption. You may notice reduced stool volume - an indication that more of the food is being used by the body.
Q. Does this need to be refrigerated after opening?
A. The product is freeze-dried. While refrigeration is not necessary, we believe it will help to maintain optimal freshness.
Q. Does this expire?
A. Yes, please check the bottom of the jar for the best before date.
Q. What is the difference between Gut Soothe and Healthy Gut?
A. Both products have the same base - the pre and probiotic blend that makes up Love Bugs.
Gut Soothe has the added herbal components that target inflammation and soothe the mucosal lining.
Healthy Gut has added digestive enzyme components.
