What are Direct-Fed Microbials ("DFMs)?
(Direct-fed microbials are also known as probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria that can help boost the levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut, whereas antibiotics attack and kill infections and unwanted bacteria.)
DFMs support overall health
Probiotics maintain the intestinal balance, overall health and performance by
- Maintaining the body's natural immunity
- Maintaining the pH level in the gut
- Maintaining the nutrient absorption
- Maintaining the gut microfloral balance
Every animal has bacteria in the digestive system. Without it, food will not be digested. The intestine of animals contains billions of bacteria, some of which are beneficial(good bacteria) and some of which are pathogenic(bad bacteria).
Under certain conditions, such as stress, the natural balance of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system is disrupted. The number of pathogens increases while the number of probiotics decreases, causing digestive upsets, results in diarrhea, constipation and discomfort. In animals, DFMs may help restore the normal microbial balance in the gut and overall health of the animal.
