Bio-Start Plus Contains;
• A massive level of probiotic (billions) of good bacteria to completely dominate the gut flora and maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria over bad.
• A prebiotic (MOS – mannan oligosaccharides) which are specific sugar molecules which attach to bad bacteria and take them out of the gut and again encouraging a better balance between good beneficial bacteria and bad ones.
• Beta-Glucans to improve the immune response when challenged with disease.
