We have found for our own health and the health of our animals, that a good source of probiotics (good bacteria) is essential in our diet, in addition to the enzymes and nutrients in BioSuperfood and BioPreparation. A good "industrial-strength"  probiotic is absolutely essential after taking any antibiotic(s), since antibiotics kill off both bad and good bacteria indiscriminately. While eating yogurt is good for maintenance, it does not supply enough friendly bacteria to be therapeutic.

Pet Flora Probiotics

When a dog or cat eats grass it may be because they have an upset stomach, yet if you look closely, you'll notice they pull at the grass. Why? To get at the microscopic soil-based organisms (SBOs) that surround the roots, which they instinctively know are essential to maintaining good health, which may be missing from their diet. This is why the Pet Flora probiotics are superior to dairy-based probiotics for pets -- it's natural to your pet.

Pet Flora is a Soil-Based Organism. Soil-Based means that the natural probiotic organisms of the soil are the ingredients in Pet Flora. In the soil, these microorganisms hold down yeast and fungi, reduce acidity, and improve assimilation of nutrients to plants. Amazingly, they do exactly the same in higher animals. Pet Flora holds down yeasts, fungi, and pathogenic microorganisms, while improving nutrient assimilation. Click on the button below for more information and to order online:

Life 5 ProbioticsLife 5 Probiotics

Young Living Essential Oils produces a probiotic product, called Life 5, that we have had excellent success with. A high-potency probiotic, Life 5 builds and restores core intestinal health by providing five clinically proven probiotic strains including three advanced super strains to enhance intestinal health, sustain energy and improve immunity. Life 5 contains 8 billion active cultures and improves colonization up to 10 times in humans.

Ingredients: HOWARU™ Rhamnosus (Ld. rhamnosus), Lactobacillus acidophilus (LA-14), HOWARU™ Bifido (Bifidobacterium lactis), Lactoferrin Streptococcus thermophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Microcrystalline cellulose, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, magnesium stearate, and silica.


To order Life 5 online, go to our online Young Living site, then click on Product Catalog, choose the Nutrition category, then Supplements A-M, then Life 5. We recommend keeping it refrigerated to preserve the potency of the probiotics in it. We do not recommend using Life 5 for animals, since the probiotic strains were specifically selected for the human digestive tract.


We have previously used Garden of Life's: Primal Defense® ULTRA Ultimate Probiotic Formula for our pets. We were particularly impressed with this product after seeing our elderly cat, Connie, get well from a mystery illness when we added this to her diet. Although Connie was on a good raw diet supplemented with BioPreparation-f3+ (the most advanced formula), she became sick in November 2003. We do not know what was wrong with her—she had a strange combination of symptoms including frequent belching, diminished appetite, lethargy and depression. She also had something wrong with her throat that made her unable to meow and caused her to occasionally gag/cough like something was stuck in her throat. Our theory is that she may have had difficulty transitioning to an all-raw diet after a lifetime of commercial, cooked pet food. We started giving her the probiotic, mixed in with her food and she immediately started improving. After a few weeks, she was back to her normal self and able to meow again, with no more cough. (Note: probiotics are not a substitute for proper veterinary care.)
