In a well functioning gut microbiome, the microbes in the gut help to digest the food your dog eats, producing beneficial compounds that help your dog stay healthy. These compounds are called “postbiotics.” Supplementing a healthy dog’s diet with the right postbiotics can boost their immune system and help them stay healthy. Postbiotics can further help dogs with imbalanced gut microbiomes by directly providing beneficial compounds that their gut microbiome may not produce in sufficient quantities that help with gut function and reduce inflammation.
