Your pet’s gut microbiome is ideally made up of trillions of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes. These microbes are essential to several key biological processes and systems that keep your pet healthy and happy. Some experts consider gut flora to be its own class of vital organ, each of the roughly 1,000 species of bacteria playing its own important role in your overall health. The food your pet eats determines the diversity and effectiveness of her gut flora, which determines whether she can digest fiber, whether her immune system is strong and reliable, and whether her brain functions normally. It can also cause her to gain excess weight and develop diabetes.
A healthy and diverse gut microbiome can reduce inflammatory diseases like irritable bowel syndrome, seal the gaps between intestinal cells that cause leaky gut syndrome, prevent disease-causing bacteria from sticking to the walls of the intestine, and reduce the risk of heart disease. Shinto’s meal plan promotes a healthy gut microbiome by providing a healthy and diverse source of beneficial gut bacteria. The organic nature of our formulas encourages the small intestine to absorb nutrition, ensuring your beloved pet gets everything she needs to live a longer, healthier, happier life.
