Why proteobiotics are the next generation of probiotic technology.
How Do They Work?
It is believed most probiotics work by ‘out-competing’ bad bacteria in the digestive tract. However, new research has found that probiotics actually produce signal molecules that interrupt cell-to-cell communication (‘quorum sensing’), reducing the ability of harmful bacteria to attach, colonize and produce toxins in the gut.
However, new research has found that probiotics also produce signal molecules that interrupt cell-to-cell communication (“quorum sensing”).
Scientifically advanced probiotic products – called proteobiotics – contain metabolites naturally secreted by probiotic bacteria.
The effect of proteobiotic is on the bacteria present in the gut and a rebalancing of the good-to-bad bacteria. This unique mechanism promotes the gut health of animals receiving proteobiotics. This technology is now available in two new products, YGIA for Dogs and NUVIO for Swine.
