+ Resistant Starch
We have paired this the most researched and recommended species and genus of beneficial bacteria for gut health, behaviour & allergies.  Working together with a nutritional scientist we have formulated a gut health food that we're incredibly proud of.

What makes this gut health food super special is mixing it with the world's highest quality, most potent resistant starch Australia Green Lady Finger "Green Banana" (not flour) which is an incredible resistant starch which feeds and boosts the good bacteria in the gut.  Here are some other benefits of resistant starch:

  • Helps to heal & seal the gut

  • A unique combination of soluble, insoluble and fermentable fiber to promote gut health and assist in the prevention of colorectal diseases

  • Boost energy

  • Rich in inulin to regulate digestion & helping dogs feel full

  • Awesome source of 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) / serotonin to balance temperament

  • Lowers blood glucose levels

  • Decreases inflammation

  • Improves absorption of nutrients

  • Rich in vitamins & minerals

  • Rich in dietary fiber

  • Rich in bio-actives

Contraindications
Gut Dust is for apparently healthy dogs where pet parents would like to support their dog's gut health. Gut Dust's resistant starch affects the gut microbes and exerts microbial effects. Studies have been conducted that show that resistant starch can change the function of gut bacteria and help with reducing chances of developing colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease, however, if your dog is or has been affected by Candida yeast then resistant starch which feeds bacteria may not be appropriate for your dog if your dog has a higher level of harmful bacteria - resistant starch cannot pick and choose which bacteria it feeds - please discuss the use of this product with your Vet / Dermatologist.  If your dog has a medical condition such as IBS or similar, you should take the advice of your Vet in relation to which strains & gensus they feel are most suited to your dog's medical condition.  We cannot give you medical advice.

Directions for use
Simply mix the recommended amount in with your dog's food or wet food such as meat, yoghurt, kefir, etc. either daily or every 2nd day.  Gut Dust can be double dossed in times of digestive stress.  If your dog is currently taking antibiotics, give Gut Dust no less than 2 hours after giving antibiotics.

Storage
We recommend that once open, that you store in the fridge to maintain the high level of CFU's.
