TruMune is a postbiotic derived from the fermentation product of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This proprietary dry product includes residual yeast cells and yeast cell wall fragments.

The Role of TruMune in Canine Health

TruMune® is great for your dog's health in three main ways. First, it boosts their immune system, helping them to better fight off illnesses. Second, it improves their digestive health. This helps maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria in their gut. Additionally, it supports their stress levels. All of these benefits work together to keep your dog healthier and happier.

Research-Based Proof of TruMune Benefits in Dog Food

A study at the University of Illinois provided strong evidence of the benefits of TruMune. The study involved 16 healthy adult English Pointers. It investigated how TruMune affects fecal characteristics, serum oxidative stress biomarkers, and whole blood gene expression in dogs undergoing transport stress.

The results were impressive.

  • Improved Stress Markers: Dogs that ate food with TruMune had better levels of malondialdehyde and serum 8-isoprostane. These are substances in the body that tell us how much stress the body is under. In simple terms, lower levels mean less stress on the body. This means TruMune helped reduce the stress on dogs' bodies.
  • Better Fat Processing: The decrease in these stress markers also suggests that the dogs' bodies were processing fats more effectively. This is great for their overall well-being.
  • TruMune also seemed to reduce unnecessary immune activity. This doesn't mean their immune systems were weaker. Instead, it means their immune systems weren't overreacting, but were functioning more effectively.
  • The dogs that had TruMune showed no big changes in the moisture content of their feces. This suggests that TruMune promotes stable digestive health. This might sound odd, but it's actually a good sign of stable and healthy digestion.

All these points together suggest that TruMune can help reduce stress in dogs and help boost their immune systems. This can make them healthier overall.
