Prebiotics have been making waves in the health product market across the world, offering a boost for the human body’s natural defense with products such at Yakult and Actimel. This recent success prompted the creation of Viyo prebiotic drink for pets.
As with humans, 70% of the natural defence system of a dog or cat is located in the intestines. Healthy intestinal functioning is therefore crucial to strong resistance. Improved intestinal functioning helps cats and dogs stay in top form.
Viyo helps enhance natural defences in 3 ways:
1. Intestinal Bacteria
Viyo contains FOSim+. The formula ensures that the active prebiotic components Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) and inulin are efficiently taken up, due to the liquid formula, where they are needed the most: in the intestines. Here, they raise the number of good bacteria which support natural defences. The prebiotic active nutritional fibres stimulate the development and activity of positive intestinal bacteria, such as bifidus and lactobacillus. As a result, more good bacteria are present in the intestines to fight disease causing germs and to prevent intestinal infections.
2. Intestinal Wall
The intestinal wall works like a filter through which positive nutrients are absorbed into the body and damaging bacteria are stopped. The intestinal wall is covered with a biofilm intended to prevent bad germs from penetrating the organ. Viyo promotes production of this biofilm: after all, a thicker biofilm constitutes a more efficient barrier.
3. Immune System
Viyo stimulates the response capacity of the immune system in the intestines so that damaging bacteria are more easily fought.
Currently Viyo is available for 3 different life stages: Kitten/Puppy – Adult – Senior. Viyo is available through 3 different channels, with adapted formulas of the product: Retail, Breeders and the more potent Veterinary product.
Benefits Of Prebiotics
-Anti-oxidants prevent or repair damages caused by free radicals
-Proportions of omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids are optimal for anti-inflammation
-Ensures the digestive system is functioning effectively, allowing all nutritional elements to be absorbed into the body more efficiently
-Fight off damaging variants, infection, and organ penetration, while providing support for natural deficiencies.
-Compact stool and a glossy coat.
Viyo contains Fosim+, a liquid prebiotic formula that increases the quantity of healthy bacteria in the intestines. Fosim+ is a formula that contains the active prebiotic components fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin in a unique and highly palatable liquid formula. Thanks to the liquid formula, Fosim+ is taken up into the intestines quicker and more effectively and guarantees a better effect than tablets or other powder or diet formulations. Here, the fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin increase the number of good bacteria, which support natural defences. The prebiotic fibres fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin from Fosim+ ferment in the large intestine and, as a result, the growth of healing bacteria in the intestines is boosted, to the detriment of potentially damaging variants. Average consumption of 0.1 g of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin per day is considered to be effective. This corresponds with a daily, 30 ml portion of Viyo.
