Stimulation of local gut immunity
An immune challenge is one of the main problems faced by pets. The immune system is a complex defence mechanism which protects animals from environmental stress, pathogens, infection, etc. 70% of the immune system is located in the gut.
Here again, selected parietal fractions from yeasts which are rich in betaglucans, can protect pets by stimulating the production of IgA in the gut as an additional means of countering pathogens.
Mannans and β-glucans (1.3 and 1.6) in Safmannan® yeast fractions are associated with a significant increase in IgA secretion.
