Arabinogalactan, occurs naturally in most plant cell walls, and is an easy-to-use soluble fiber to help maintain regularity and balance GI flora. It is a extremely effective fiber that is also an immune enhancer and prebiotic. It is as safe as water, virtually flavorless, acceptable to finicky cats, and recommended for cats and dogs.
Soluble fiber: mixes easily in water
Prebiotic - Improves Bacteria In The Colon
Well tolerated: no bloating, cramping or gas
Promotes regularity and supports healthy glycemic control
Non-allergenic and does not stimulate an insulin response
Enhance nutrient absorption, and helps maintain optimum digestive function
Helps to reduce stomach acidity
Note: Arabinogalactan is the name for a patented fiber extract, which is a long chain polysaccharides extracted from larch trees. We separate it into cat and dog categories for our records.
Royal Society Of Medicine of Great Britain has written that "90% of all chronic disease is caused by an unhealthy intestinal tract," It follows then that Arabinogalactan powder may limit the progress of a disease by stimulating immune cell activation.
Arabinogalactan supports colon health by working in the colon to activate immune cells. Acting as a ferment-able fiber, it promotes growth of pro-biotic bacteria (such as Pet Flora) in the colon and contributes to healthy microflora levels.
Arabinogalactan powder enhances the immune system by increasing the number of immune cells present in the bloodstream, enhancing natural killer cell and macrophage activation, and limiting unhealthy cell replication. It also supports the immune system and colon health by moderating acidic buildup in the intestinal tract.
Dogs: for every 25 lbs. of animal administer 1 Tbl.
Administer with food or liquid up to 3x daily.
If administering with dry food, add a splash of water or broth to wet the powder.
Note: Arabinogalactan is so gentle that there is no upper limit on dosage. It supports the immune system, calms the stomach, and soothes GI function at the recommended dose but more is perfectly safe and may be necessary for some animals.
Arabinogalactan powder is 100% Larch Tree extract, with 98% Arabinogalactans.

"Arabinogalactan has worked great on all my corgis and all problems of theirs are resolved."
"First let me say that I have had great success with your products. I help run a small Cat rescue group in New Jersey.
I have used Pet Flora, Luxolite, Arabinogalactan, Anti-Inflammatory & Soothing Solution on both my own cats and those of the rescue group.
The rescued cats often have diarrhea problems and just a general state of declined health. I keep preaching to adopters the important of a
good quality food (raw or at least something like the Wellness brand) and of course your products.
We now have a kitten that has tested positive for Feline Leukemia but currently is otherwsie healthy.
We have put the kitten on your supplements of Pet Flora, Arabinogalactan and also Vitamin C and will retest the kitten in a few months.
Thank you for great products that my cats easily take in their food."
Arabinogalactan stimulates macrophage activity and therefore may be effective in preventing cancer
Arabinogalactan Research Update
Immunomodulating activity of arabinogalactan and fucoidan in vitro.
J Med Food. 2005 Winter;8(4):446-53.
Department of Biotechnology & Bioproducts Research Center, Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea.
Many polysaccharides obtained from natural sources are considered to be biological response modifiers and have been
shown to enhance various immune responses.
These data suggest that arabinogalactan and fucoidan are activators of lymphocytes and macrophages. This property may contribute to their effectiveness in the immunoprevention of cancer.
Arabinogalatcan has no effect on blood sugar levels and is well accepted by consumers
