MaxxiDigest Plus Contains

Best Ingredients for Pets Digestive & Immune System

MaxxiDigest Plus is quite different from the other digestive formulas out there. It contains the best probiotic bacteria for pets but it is so much more than just probiotics.

MaxxiDigest Plus is an advanced therapeutic formula that supports both the digestive and immune system in dogs and cats. Simply put… MaxxiDigest Plus is Two Formulas in One.

Actually, it is even more than that as the base used in MaxxiDigest Plus offers its own health benefits to both cats and dogs. It contains antioxidants that are beneficial for the immune system and lignans that has hormone balancing properties. It is prebiotic as well.

So MaxxiDigest Plus is not just probiotics. But it is ALSO probiotics and actually very effective as such. Because it contains the best probiotic bacteria for pets, which is…

Pediococcus Acidilactici (P. acidilactici)

Pediococcus is beneficial bacteria that naturally exists in human and animal gastrointestinal (GI) tracts. Its safety is proven. It belongs to General Regarded As Safe (GRAS) from US Food and Drug Department (FDA) perspectives.

What Makes Pediococcus Acidilactici Different To Other Probiotic Bacteria?

Compared to conventional probiotic bacteria (like Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus), Pediococcus acidilactici is less sensitive to oxygen exposure and elevated temperature. Pediococcus acidilactici can survive in temperature up to 65°C and is able to grow under aerobic and semi-aerobic conditions.cat-and-dogs-digestion.jpg

This makes Pediococcus acidilactici more stable as probiotic

What's more, due to their resistance to acidic environment, P. acidilactici is able to survive exposure to stomach acid and therefore allows for delivery to GI tracts for maximum health effects.

Simply put, probiotics are not about quantity but quality. You need much less volume of Pediococcus acidilactici as they survive the stomach acid and are therefore guaranteed to make it to the GI tracts for maximum health benefits.

The photo below clearly demonstrates the advance that Pediococcus acidilactici has over more conventional probiotic bacteria. The stomach acid in our dogs and cats is more acid than in us humans. Their pH level is between 1 and 2 but lower pH means higher acidity (humans pH is 5 on full stomach).

As the photos shows, only Pediococcus acidilactici survives the acid environment in our pets' stomach. This is what makes Pediococcus acidilactici the best probiotic bacteria for pets.

That Pediococcus acidilactici is less sensitive to oxygen exposure and elevated temperature, also means that MaxxiDigest Plus has longer shelf life than conventional probiotics.

But that's not all…

MaxxiDigest Plus not only contains the best probiotic bacteria for pets. We guarantee 1 billion cfu of Pediococcus acidilactici per serving at the date of expiry, not only at the date of manufacturing.

To achieve this, an extra 100 mg of Pediococcus acidilactici is included at the date of manufacturing or total 1.5 billion cfu. That's 50% overage.

Studies Confirm That Pediococcus Acidilactici Works

As we have learned, Pediococcus acidilactici (Mito5051TM) are scientifically proven to survive through the gastric system. But how do they work for our pets digestive and immune health?MaxxiSAMe liver brain

Studies have confirmed that Pediococcus acidilactici is not only helpful to alleviate the drug side effects when administered together with drugs treatment. P. acidilactici also helps dogs and cats to accelerate their recovery from acute or chronic diseases.

"Animal research has shown that P. acidilactici is able to balance the intestinal microflora and reduce the risk of suboptimal health. Moreover, current results indicate that P. acidilactici is able to promote a healthy inflammatory response in the intestines, as well as support a healthy immune response. P. acidilactici produces several different antimicrobial compounds that lessen the number of pathogenic bacteria. It actively competes against Listeria" (Jarrow) *

* Pathogenic bacteria are bacteria that can cause infection

L-Glutamine (Glutamine)

There are two types of Glutamine but all Glutamine found in food or supplements are L-Glutamine.

Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid (a building block for proteins) that is found naturally in the body. It has many supportive functions for the digestive tract. Supplementation can improve digestive health and optimize immune system function (PetMD).MaxxiSAMe liver brain

Glutamine serves as a primary energy source for the mucosal cells that lines the intestinal tract. Stress on the intestinal cells can increase the need for Glutamine, e.g. due to chronic bowel diseases.

Glutamine supplementation is commonly recommended for pets with acute or chronic bowel disorders including inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, leaky gut syndrome, and irritable bowel syndrome.

L-Glutamine builds and soothes inflammatory tissue in the gut lining. It repairs the damaged intestinal mucosal barrier stopping gut permeability, the leaking of large proteins into the bloodstream. It can also lead to better absorption of nutrients in the intestinal tract.

Glutamine may also reduce the gastrointestinal toxicity of some chemotherapy drugs and may minimize inflammation of the intestinal tract caused by radiation therapy (Withrow and MacEwen's Small Animal Clinical Oncology).

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)

MSM is the source of sulfur in the body. It is maybe best known for its role in supporting joint health but MSM offers various other health benefits.

MSM maintains healthy connective tissue and has natural pain and anti-inflammatory properties. It effectively fights inflammations resulting from autoimmune reactions (in which the body's immune system turns on itself) and can also be helpful as allergy relief.

N-Acetyl-D–Glucosamine (NAG)

Glucosamine comes in different forms. Glucosamine HCL and Glucosamine Sulfate are the best known but they are commonly used in Joint Supplements For Dogs. N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, or NAG, is one more form of Glucosamine and is found in the outer shells of shellfish.

NAG helps to protect the lining of the stomach and intestines, i.e. helps to maintain normal intestinal permeability.

N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine is commonly taken for osteoarthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease (PetMD).MaxxiSAMe liver brain

Fucus Vesiculosus

Fucus vesiculosus (also known as bladderwrack) is an algae (seaweed) that grows in cooler oceans all around the globe. 

Seaweed is packed with nutrients. It contains iodine, which is used to prevent and treat some thyroid disorders. It also provides iron, energizing B12, and dietary fiber, along with folate (folic acid) and riboflavin.

"That nutritional profile suggests that seaweed could help raise energy levels. The magnesium and seaweed’s fiber will help you avoid constipation. Some medical testing suggests brown seaweed can fight some cancers and infections" (Healthline).

Simply put, Fucus vesiculosus supports healthy thyroid function and metabolism.

Bromelain

Bromelain is an enzyme that occurs naturally in pineapple. It's mainly used to ease pain and swelling, which is why you find Bromelain in our MaxxiFlex Plus Joint Supplement.

Boxer-and-Cat-Digest-800.jpg

But that's not all. Bromelain helps with many digestive problems too. The digestive fluids in our dog's and cat's system destroy most orally ingested enzymes prior to them being absorbed. Bromelain however is a proteolytic enzyme, i.e. it has the ability to break down proteins.

This means that Bromelain can help the body to digest food and absorb nutrients more efficiently, as well as effectively heal various issues in the gastrointestinal tract.

Bromelain is also a natural antihistamine, i.e. digests the histamine molecule. Histamine causes allergies so Bromelain can help relief some of the most common allergy symptoms.

Papain

Papain is another popular digestive enzyme and works similar as Bromelain in supporting digestive health in our pets. It has also been shown to be as effective as aspirin as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent in a variety of medical conditions.

Proteolytic Enzymes For Pets

Papaya and pineapple are two of the richest plant sources of digestive enzymes. Papain and Bromelain are the respective names for the proteolytic enzymes found in these fruits.

The primary use of proteolytic enzymes is as a digestive aid. Digestive enzymes may help foil this so-called “leaky gut” problem. They can be helpful for a wide variety of other health conditions, especially food allergies (presumably by digesting the food so well that there is less to be allergic to), atopic (allergic) dermatitis, hairballs, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and autoimmune diseases (Total Health Magazine).

Pancrelipase

Pancrelipase is a combination of three enzymes (proteins): lipase, protease, and amylase. These enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are crucial for normal digestion. Pancrelipase is used to replace these enzymes when the body does not have enough of its own.

Pancrelipase improves the pancreatic function (supporting the pancreas to breakdown carbs, fat, and protein).shutterstock_114350371.jpg

It is used to treat pancreatic disorders in pets, including pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (EPI) in cats and dogs. EPI causes an inability to normally digest food and generally results from repeated bouts of pancreatitis.

MaxxiDigest Plus starts by supporting the pancreas with pancrelipase helping the breakdown of all food eaten even the not so good food (high carb). Pancrelipase provides three enzymes, lipase for fat, amylase for carbs and protease for protein digestion essential to digestion and absorption of numerous nutrients, especially fats.

Pancrelipase is made from the pancreas of pigs.

Vitis Vinifera (Grape Seed Extract)

MaxxiDigest-Plus-Front-View.jpgAs all dog owners know, grapes can be toxic for our dogs (no report of cats becoming ill from grapes but they are still unlikely to eat them). The grape seed extract and the oil of the grapes are however not toxic and actually offers important health benefits to both dogs and cats.

Grape seed extract contains ingredients that are anti-inflammatory, anti-allergen, and antioxidant. Which makes it good ingredient in an advance digestive and immune formula for pets.

Grape seed extract is made from the crushed seeds of the grape (a byproduct of the wine manufacturing industry).  

L-Cystine

Cystine is not the same as Cysteine but both are amino acids. Cystine plays an important role in protein synthesis; it helps determine the protein’s final shape. Study on rats also showed that cystine boosts the levels of an enzyme that removes fats from the bloodstream (Livestrong).

L-Taurine

Taurine is an amino acid that supports the neurological development, helps to regulate the level of water and mineral salt in the blood, and has antioxidant properties. Taurine has been shown to be beneficial for the heart function, but it but has many other benefits, including calming and stabilizing effect on the brain (which is why it is one of the key ingredients in MaxxiCalm).

Dogs can suffer from Taurine deficiency, i.e. if the body does not produce enough of it. 

"Taurine is found primarily in muscle meat, and is completely absent in cereal grains. The lack of taurine in the diet caused serious eye and heart diseases to develop" (Only Natural Pet)

Chromium (Polynicotinate)

Chromium is a trace element (metal) that helps keep blood sugar levels normal by improving the way the body uses insulin. Supplementation of chromium may aid body fat loss, retain and build lean body mass, lower elevated blood sugar, and reduce blood cholesterol levels.

Chromium's effect on dogs and cats has been studied both for weight loss and regulation of glucose in diabetics. Chromium may be helpful in diabetic animals (especially cats) that are difficult to regulate on insulin (Pet Education).

Biotin

Biotin (or Vitamin H or B7) is one of the 8 vitamins that are found in the B-complex. As well as help supporting and maintaining healthy skin and hair (which is why it is in our MaxxiOmega), Biotin is required for proper function of the enzymes in the body.shutterstock_135327395.jpg

The MaxxiDigest Plus Base

The powder base used in MaxxiDigest Plus contains defatted flax, sunflower, and sesame seed fibre that also provides immune and hormone function properties. This is a concentrated form of fibre supplying nearly double the lignan content from what is in whole flaxmeal.

Lignans has Hormone Balancing Properties

Lignans are a group of chemical compounds found in plants. Lignans are high in antioxidants and fibre, and have anti-estrogenic effects, i.e. may help to regulate the hormone levels.

Lignans offers various health benefits for our pets. Being high in antioxidants, they support the immunes system. While the hormone balancing properties of Lignans means they are beneficial for both male and female animals that have been spayed or neutered.

But that's not all…

shutterstock_243387817.jpg

The Base in MaxxiDigest Plus is also Prebiotic

The fibre helps with the digestion and many conditions related to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Pediococcus acidilactici is the best probiotics for pets but prebiotics are needed to feed the probiotics.

"Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your digestive system healthy by controlling growth of harmful bacteria. Prebiotics are carbohydrates that cannot be digested by the human body. They are food for probiotics. The primary benefit of probiotics and prebiotics appears to be helping you maintain a healthy digestive system" (WebMD)

This is one more thing that makes MaxxiDigest Plus different from the other digestive formulas out there.

By putting the digestive and restorative medicinal ingredients into a base of defatted seed fibre base of flax, sunflower, and sesame (the prebiotics) we are improving the immune function by feeding the dogs and cats intestinal flora. By so doing, the bacteria will flourish, cleaning up the environment and allowing better absorption of the medicinal ingredients in the formula as well as from the animals' food.

The base in MaxxiDigest Plus is not just filling, it has its own health benefits for cats and dogs.
