Gluten-Free Living Magazine selected Life's Abundance Probiotic for inclusion in its April 2017 issue.
Providing your body with a regular source of “friendly” bacteria is important. There was a time when you could get healthy bacteria through foods but today most foods are so overly processed and pasteurized that the healthy bacteria aren’t alive by the time you ingest them. That’s why a daily probiotic is so valuable. There’s an ecosystem of bacteria (known as the intestinal microbiota) living in your intestines, which contains both “good” and “bad” bacteria. When the balance is tipped toward “bad” bacteria due to many factors including lack of sleep, stress or other causes, it may affect your digestive health and overall well-being.
The Life’s Abundance Probiotic formula was developed with an award winning probiotics manufacturer in the USA, focused on supplying the highest quality strains that are vigorously tested using top technological advances.
Two of the most important criteria for evaluating a probiotic are whether it can survive passage through the stomach by resisting gastric acidity and survive the intestines by resisting bile acids - both of which our probiotic formula have proven to do in research studies.
Life’s Abundance Probiotic formula has a potency guarantee of at least 25 Billion CFUs per capsule and a shelf life of 2 years at room temperature. Unlike some other probiotic formulas with shorter shelf lives, ours is guaranteed to stay stable, longer at room temperature.
Some of the benefits of the probiotic formula are:

Many consumers place ‘blind faith’ in the pet food industry. The general consensus is that if a food is on the store shelf, it must be nutritious and safe. But the sad reality is that many pet products (including food and treats) are routinely recalled, but not before there have been dreadful consequences.
Life's Abundance was started in 1999 and has never had a single recall. To this day Life's Abundance remains a small, private company that still uses a hands on Veterinarian formulator. Life's Abundance pet foods are the careful creation of holistic Veterinarian, Dr. Jane Bicks and are proudly made in the USA.

Have you ever asked yourself, "If pet food companies are concerned about providing the best nutrition possible, why do they make differently priced foods?
That's a fair question and one that deserves a fair answer.
If two foods that are made by the same company are marketed and sold as 100% nutritionally complete and balanced for your pet, yet one is more expensive than the other, what's the difference? If both pet foods are of equal quality there is no need to spend money on the higher priced food, right? But if both pet foods are not of the same quality, then we have to question the nutritional benefits of each food!
Life’s Abundance pet foods only come in one variety – The Best They Can Make. While they understand most people want to watch their budgets and not spend more than is necessary, they also understand that you get what you pay for. Most people never consider that buying cheaper foods can lead to more expenses down the road with regard to vet costs, nutritionally related ailments, and shortened life spans. They may also not realize that it often takes twice the servings of a cheaper food to equal one serving of Life's Abundance, which eliminates any perceived cost benefit.
The philosophy is simple, people who love their pets want to feed what is best, not what is cheapest!

(Article by Dr. Jane Bicks from the October 2014 Life's Abundance Newsletter.)
Animal hoarding is not just a complicated psychological disorder, it’s a public health danger. Most recently popularized by Animal Planet’s ‘Confessions’, animal hoarding is a growing problem in the U.S. Current estimates put the number of animals trapped every year in hoarding situations at 250,000. Experts believe that many more remain unreported. Dogs and cats aren’t the only species ‘collected’ … reptiles, rabbits, birds, rodents, even farm animals are accumulated by hoarders.
Generally speaking, animal hoarding has two common elements: one, a household with more than the typical number of companion animals and, two, an inability to provide minimal standards of nutrition, shelter, veterinary care and basic sanitation. Sadly, a third aspect can prove even more deadly, with extreme neglect which can result in untreated disease and starvation. Regardless of how bad the situation becomes, hoarders seem unwilling to admit their inability to provide for their animals. In most cases, they remain blind to the horrific conditions of their own creation.
So, what causes someone to become an animal hoarder? New research suggests attachment syndromes are to blame, often in conjunction with other mental disorders -- most commonly obsessive compulsive personalities, but also with paranoia, delusional thinking and dementia. Some begin hoarding in the wake of a traumatic event, such as the loss of a close family member. Many view themselves as full-time rescuers, believing that they’re saving animals from pain and hardship. Typically, they have no awareness that they are actually hurting their animals.
Here are some of the warning signs that someone might have a problem with animal hoarding:
Some hoarders go to excessive lengths to hide their secret, going so far as to pose as a legitimate rescue group or animal sanctuary, complete with an approved non-profit tax status. They create elaborate websites, disguising the true circumstances in their homes. To determine whether or not a hoarder is masquerading as a rescue group, here are some things to watch out for:
If someone you know is an animal hoarder, there are some ways that you can help.
Pick up the phone and call your local animal welfare enforcement agency, police department, animal shelter or veterinarian. They can help to initiate the healing process. You may not want to be the person who gets anyone “in trouble,” but just know that a simple phone call could be the vital first step towards recovery for all involved.
Reassure the animal hoarder that it's okay to accept help. Remind them that everyone gets overwhelmed at some point in their lives. It’s not uncommon for animal hoarders to obsessively worry about their animals. Once they fully comprehend that their animals need urgent medical care, most are willing to take immediate action.
Seek the assistance of social service groups. Animal hoarding is not just about the animals. Agencies specializing in aging populations, adult protective services, health departments and other mental health groups will know best how to get hoarders the help they need.
Volunteer. After hoarding situations are uncovered, the removal of so many animals can be a staggering burden on local shelters. Volunteer your time and/or financial support or whatever you can do to help during the transition phase.
Educate others about the harm a hoarding situation can cause. Animal hoarding has often been portrayed as a harmless eccentricity — for example, the “crazy cat lady”. Members of your community need to be aware of the negative impacts. Who knows perhaps they’ll be inspired to help other overwhelmed animal caregivers, too!
