Animals produce substances including enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract to breakdown food that aid digestion and absorption. The gastrointestinal microbiota contribute to this digestion and absorption by producing their own chemicals that include enzymes.
Dynavyte Pets MBS contains Bacillus subtilis natto (B. natto) that produces various enzymes and other substances that assist digestion in the body. However, enzymes produced by B. natto also have other effects:
Some of the proteolytic enzymes (or proteases) produced by B. natto can degrade staphylococcal enterotoxin protecting the body from its toxic effects.
“Staphylococcal enterotoxins cause food poisoning and toxic shock and may lead to multiple organ failure resulting from massive activation of the immune system (24). There is also evidence that suggests a critical role for staphylococcal enterotoxins in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (27).” Ref below.
