Postbiotics are much less widely known than both Prebiotics and Probiotics, but recent research suggests that they have an equally important role, if not more important, in maintaining and improving our Dogs Health.
In fact, most of the health benefits that have been attributed to Probiotics may indeed be due to Postbiotics.
As your dog’s microbiome assists with the daily Operations of their Body, communicating with distant Organs and Influencing many aspects of their Health and Wellbeing, it plays a crucial role in everything from their mood to their digestion and immune system.
We are only now fully understanding the importance of good gut health and the Microbiome, the Gut is consistently exposed to broad harmful pathogens from the external environment. It acts as a barrier against infections, involves in digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune response. Any disruption and dysfunction in the gut microenvironment can cause huge implications on the general well-being of our Dogs.
The ADH Postbiotic Game Changer: what we do and what it does for your Dog!
As part of our supplements, we provide dog owners with our specially formulated canine Probiotic strains fermented into Activ Dog Health canine Postbiotics.
In a similar manner to how the gut ferments Pre and Probiotics to create Postbiotic metabolites, Activ dog health grows the Postbiotics through an all natural fermentation process. We then make a healthy treat with this formula for our dogs to consume, ensuring they remain healthy and happy.
Postbiotic metabolites are key ingredients for a healthy microbiome! In the coming months and years you will hear a lot about Postbiotics and their benefits, we only now really understanding their crucial role in gut health and a healthy microbiome.
During the first two weeks, you will notice increased nutrient absorption through weight gain. We have observed that some dogs on our Postbiotics require 20% less food, which is both a great saving and a demonstration of the fact that nutrients are absorbed more effectively. There will likely be a tremendous improvement in the coat health and also in their stools.
We have found that our postbiotics increase your dogs’ health and wellbeing, reducing the amount of visits they need to the vet. Preventative medicine makes the old saying “a healthy gut makes a healthy dog” more true.

Postbiotics are an incredible new finding in gut health research. In terms of your overall digestive health, Postbiotics help to reduce intestinal inflammation. This is vital because Probiotics can’t do what they are supposed to do when there is inflamed tissue. Bad bacteria ends up destroying those Probiotics before they can even start their good work.
Combining your pets Probiotics with Postbiotics ensures the healthy Bacteria is better absorbed and delivered to where it’s supposed to go.

By consuming Postbiotics, it allows for the immediate delivery of beneficial metabolites into your dog’s body. This reduces the reliance on Prebiotics and Probiotics to release Postbiotics and allows for Probiotics to work better.
The microbiome, which refers to the collection of microorganisms living in and on the our dogs body, continues to be a rapidly evolving area of research.
Here are some recent developments:
Gut microbiome and brain health: Research suggests that the gut microbiome may play a role in brain health and neurological disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and autism. Studies have found that certain bacteria in the gut can produce neurotransmitters and other compounds that affect brain function, and that altering the gut microbiome through probiotics, diet, or fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) may have therapeutic potential.
Microbiome and cancer: Research has shown that the microbiome may play a role in the development and progression of various types of cancer. Studies have found that gut microbiome composition is associated with colorectal cancer.
Microbiome and immunity: The microbiome has been found to play a crucial role in immune function and regulation. Research has shown that the gut microbiome is involved in the development and function of immune cells, and alterations in the gut microbiome have been linked to autoimmune disorders, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and multiple sclerosis. Studies are ongoing to explore the potential for microbiome-based therapies for these and other immune-related disorders.
Microbiome and personalized nutrition: There is increasing interest in the potential for microbiome-based personalized nutrition. Research suggests that the gut microbiome may affect how individuals respond to different types of foods and diets, and that personalized dietary interventions based on an individual’s microbiome may be more effective than a one-size-fits-all approach.
Overall, the microbiome continues to be an exciting area of research with the potential to revolutionize our understanding of overall health and disease.
A daily Postbiotic will improve the absorption of a variety of vitamins and minerals from food and supplements.
In addition, Postbiotics can manufacture B vitamins, and there may be a synergistic relationship between vitamin D and Postbiotics.
If your dog is experiencing the signs and symptoms of a micronutrient deficiency, it’s important to look for the root cause, which is often related to suboptimal gut health.
Postbiotics can support immune health, provide digestive support, improve gut function, and help to restore the ability to adequately absorb nutrients, including vitamins.
Gut microbiome: Finding the right balance
There are literally trillions of microorganisms that live in your dogs intestinal tract, and this is what’s referred to as their gut microbiome. In order to stay happy and healthy, that microbiome needs to be well balanced with both good and bad bacteria.
Just because some bacteria is termed as ‘bad’, that doesn’t mean it should be eliminated from your dogs body. In fact, a well-balanced gut microbiome needs a balanced mix of both good and bad microorganisms. This way, they can work in tandem to keep your dog in good health.
From bacteria to fungi, protozoa and viruses, all these things play a role in their gut microbiome – an environment teeming with good and bad bacteria. And when things like poor diet and other health issues cause their bacteria levels to be out of balance, it can have a negative impact.
So how do we fix it?
Simply by supplementing their diet with Postbiotics namely Activ Daily once a day.
The overall goal when it comes to taking probiotics, prebiotics and postbiotics isn’t to overload their body with one or the other. Rather, it’s to ensure there is good balance in their gut microbiome. Through the right balance of good and bad bacteria, they’ll work in harmony to keep them healthy and feeling their best.
Due to increased stability, temperature and pressure tolerances, Postbiotics have significant shelf-life benefits when compared to live probiotics.
The term postbiotic was recently defined by an panel of scientists convened by the International Scientific Association of Probiotics and Prebiotics as “a preparation of inanimate microorganisms and/or their components that confers a health benefit on the host.” This definition focused on the progenitor microbial cell or cell fragments, not just metabolites, proteins or carbohydrates they might produce. Although such microbe-produced constituents may be functional ingredients of the preparation, they are not required to be present in a postbiotic according to this definition.
A recent research paper showed that when using postbiotics for certain gut imbalances, positive results were shown from as early as 1-2 weeks.
