Supporting digestive health with yeasts
Yeast parietal fractions, such as Safmannan®, will act on maintaining gut wall integrity and the immune system, aiding the management of stress during dietary transition in dogs by supporting gut level IgA.
Yeast fractions will also act on microbiota-associated mechanisms; for example, preventing E. coli development in growing dogs.
Yeast extracts, i.e. the cytosol part of the yeasts, such as Prosaf®, which is rich in bioactive peptides, nucleotides, and vitamins, will protect the brush border and even feed part of the microbiota, in conditions such as protein-losing enteropathies.
