How it works
Optagest works with the body’s natural processes to provide a healthy, balanced digestive system. It contains prebiotics which serve as food for native bacteria in your dogs gut. This targeted feeding promotes a healthy intestinal balance, supporting a happy tummy without ever introducing foreign bacteria. Digestive enzymes break down food so your dog gets the most nutritional value out of whatever they eat. By working with your dog’s natural physiology, Optagest can provide faster, noticeable differences in digestion.
ingredients with a purpose
Optagest is 100% human-grade, and because it contains no living ingredients it is highly shelf-stable. Optagest’s quality is not affected by oxygen, water or heat less than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. It contains no filler, preservatives, sugars, grains, or flavors that could further irritate sensitive systems. This simple, thoughtful formula makes an ideal digestive support supplement for dogs of all ages.
Inulin is a natural plant-based prebiotic that feeds the healthy bacteria already living in your pet’s gut. It plays a large role in healthy digestion and a healthy immune system.
Amylase is a digestive enzyme specializing in the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates allowing your pet to have more sustained energy throughout their busy days.
Cellulase is an enzyme that breaks down cellulose, the main structural component of plant tissues. This key ingredient helps to convert cellulose into more easily digestible and readily absorbed nutrients.
Protease is a digestive enzyme specializing in the breakdown and absorption of proteins to help your pet get the most of their meals.
Lipase is a digestive enzyme specializing in the breakdown and absorption of healthy fats, keeping your pet’s gut healthy and happy.
