One of the Herbsmith supplements Bailey's will be putting on our shelves is the Microflora Plus. This product has 10 billion probiotics, which is 100x the quantity of most competitors. Probiotics are the good bacteria in the body which promotes healthy digestive tracts. The more probiotics in the gut, the more sound the digestion and the more nutrients are absorbed from food. It's important to note as well that good bacteria competes with bad bacteria for food (known as pre-biotics). If there aren't any pre-biotics in the body, the probiotics have nothing to live off of. With this in mind, Microflora Plus provides both pre and probiotics, along with digestive enzymes and G.I. tract soothing herbs! This is 4-in-1 supplement is perfect for dogs experiencing loose stools, diarrhea, anal gland issues, and bad gas.
Other items we'll be carrying for gut health: Scooter's Butt Bars (great for anal gland issues and general bowel support), Slippery Elm (great for dumpster divers or dogs with constipation),
We'll also be carrying their joint supplement Sound Dog Viscosity. In order to have an effective foundation for joint health, dogs need glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid and MSM, all which take about 2-3 weeks to start providing relief. Herbsmith also includes anti-inflammatory herbs that take only a few hours to kick in, giving instant relief to senior pets! These anti-inflammatories also help the body make better use of glucosamine and chondroitin by allowing a clearer path to the affected areas.
Other joint health supplements we'll be carrying include Comfort Aches (great for dogs with torn ligaments that need instant anti-inflammatory relief), and Soothe Joints (great for older dogs with stiff joints or arthritis).
We'll also be carrying Glimmer, an omega-3 and omega-6 supplement using krill and anchovy oils, which have low heavy metal and toxin content, also including skin-supporting herbs like black sesame.
A product we're especially excited about is Clear AllerQi. This is a supplement made specifically for dogs who suffer from seasonal allergy symptoms. This strengthens the body's defense system and helps maintain healthy histamine levels and helps support the body's detoxification process. This also strengthens over time, so it will provide continuous and strong support throughout allergy season. This takes 4-6 weeks to take effect and strengthens over time.
A partner supplement to Clear AllerQi is Milk Thistle. This helps the liver filter harmful particles including environmental toxins and heavy metals.
Senior Dog Wisdom is a supplement in cognitive health to nourish the brain. This contains antioxidants and mitochondrial function enhancers in order to fight aging and promote production of serotonin to increase brain function. It also includes DHA which is vital for brain activity. This supplement provides optimal brain health and alleviates symptoms of dementia as while as acting as a preemptive protection against dementia. It's recommended that this is used in the last 1/3 of a dog's lifespan.
We're also going to be carrying their Taurine Boost formula, which is a heart-health supplement to help our pets' heart function properly by providing amino acids as the building blocks of vital proteins. It also contains antioxidants and omega-3 sources.
