Explained - The 4 Active Nutraceuticals in the Oatinol Delivery System

Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to their basic nutritional value.

Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies the following four active nutraceuticals to:

  • Maintain gut cell integrity.
  • Maintain the lining of the gut.
  • Support the immune system.
  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E. They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.

Phospholipids

Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Why Should I Feed Digestive Aid for Dogs?

Digestive Aid is designed for dogs struggling with digestive issues, including poor stools (constipation or diarrhoea) and dogs who are struggling to absorb essential nutrients in the diet.

It is formulated with our Oatinol® Delivery System™ designed to improve the absorption of nutrients through the gut wall and help block pathogens. Digestive Aid also includes a toxin binder to address commonly found toxins in your dog's feed or environment as well as 4 prebiotics for supporting your dog's gut health:

  • Galacto – Oligosaccharides – encourage multiplication of beneficial Bifidobacterium specifically within the lower gut and also increase bowel mass.
  • Mannan - Oligosaccharides - these have a positive regulatory effect on the composition of gut flora.
  • Fructo – Oligosaccharides - encourage healthy stools whilst feeding the good bacteria in the colon.
  • Xylo – Oligosaccharides – help establish good bacteria in the gut, improve the structural element of the gut and promote healthy lipid (fat) and blood sugar levels.

The Verm-X used in Digestive Aid is an award winning veterinary approved formulation to address gut issues & hygiene, and micronized beet pulp also helps develop lower gut villi which increases the absorption potential.

Is Digestive Aid for Dogs Safe for Pregnant and Lactating Bitches?

Yes Digestive Aid is suitable for pregnant dogs. In most cases, Digestive Aid will help to improve digestive health in the mother including the absorption of essential nutrients, and help achieve a healthy puppy.  

Is Digestive Aid Suitable for Puppies?

Yes, our supplements are suitable for all dogs regardless of age or exercise level.

Do I Need to Give a Loading Amount?

No not usually. Thanks to Oatinol, we usually see a high rate of nutrient absorption with our supplements and therefore your animal will benefit quicker. If your dog is fussy or sensitive to changes then we would advise introducing the supplement over a period of 10 days, starting with 50% of the recommended amount and increasing this gradually.

Can Digestive Aid be Given Alongside Your Other Supplements for Dogs?

Yes you can give Digestive Aid for Dogs along with any of our other supplements. There may sometimes be a crossover with ingredients, but your dog will simply pass any excess amounts and the chances of side effects are very small.

However, we would advise some caution with Raw Aid for Cats & Dogs, especially if you are also giving fortified complete feeds or other multivitamin & mineral supplements.

Can I Try a Sample Before I Buy?

Yes of course, if you would like a sample of one of our products please just get in touch.

Are There Any Side Effects I Should Look Out for With Digestive Aid?

Unless your dog has an allergy to any of the ingredients themselves, there are no known side effects from the product.  

Is Digestive Aid Economical to Feed?

Digestive Aid can actually be very cost effective, especially when you consider the potential costs of rejected feed, sickness and veterinary bills.

Would Digestive Aid be Suitable for a Dog with Gastro Colitis?

Yes it would be suitable. Digestive Aid will be able to support the body's natural anti-inflammatory processes thanks to curcumin and piperine, as well as helping with absorption from the prebiotics and providing overall digestive support.
