Offering a balanced diet is essential to every equine’s health and wellbeing; the combination of sufficient and correct exercise plus quality feeding will produce the optimum condition needed for whatever discipline the horses or pony is being asked to do.
Nutri-Gut supplement from Scientific Nutritional Products optimises digestive wellbeing and limits the risk of health conditions such as stress, diarrhoea, gastric ulcers, colic and dehydration as a result of digestive upsets.
Nutri-Gut from Scientific Nutritional Products contains a unique blend of Prebiotic for Horses and Probiotic for Horses carefully chosen to enhance the “good bacteria” population of your horse’s digestive system and suppress the harmful types. The top quality supplement combines Fructo-oligosaccharides and Mannan-oligosaccharides with Yea-Sacc 1026 offering a multi-focused mechanism to promoting optimum digestive health.
Horse Probiotics exert their effects as follows -
Competitive Exclusion: One of the most important roles of the microflora in the small intestine is the inhibition of pathogenic bacteria by competitive exclusion to the gut wall or lining. Probiotics for Horses provide additional support by further reducing possible ‘gaps’ in the microfloral lining of the gut.
- Nutrilites: The probiotic microflora also produce naturally occurring acids, which help to maintain the ideal environment to promote the growth of friendly bacteria.
- Toxins: Many of the strains of bacteria included in a probiotic produce compounds that actually inhibit the reproduction and growth of invading bacteria.
- Immunity: Probiotics have also been reported to increase the horse’s resistance to disease.
Fructo-oligosaccharides and Mannan-oligosaccharides are Prebiotics. They cannot be digested in the small intestine and so are utilised entirely in the hindgut, provbiding the friendly bacteria with the optimum nutrients to reproduce and multiply, thus maintaining a stable gut environment.
Nutri-Gut can be fed every day for all round good health or at times when digestive upset is likely such as times of stress.
Optimal digestive health is vital to ensure a happy, healthy horse and for many horse owners, striking this fine balance can prove a challenge. Horses and ponies are notorious for their sensitive digestive systems and the horse’s unique and one-way digestive system requires particular nurturing in a domestic environment as a modern lifestyle has meant many equines experience more stabled time, richer pasture, increased concentrate feed and more extensive exercise and competition schedules.
