The all new and improved Gut Balancer is a balanced combination of Pre and Pro-Biotics and features specially protected live yeast which ensures that high enough numbers of live yeast cells reach the hindgut therefore beneficially influencing hindgut function.
The feeding rate also delivers the highest amount of yeast compared to any other product on the market. Gut Balancer also contains a source of mannanoligosaccharide (MOS), fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and betaglucans, which help stimulate the growth of good bacteria and bind mycotoxins produced by fungal contamination of feed. With two clinical trials and very high levels of gastro-intestinal live yeast, this award winning product delivers highly effective and rapid results, with results seen in a little as seven days.
Unlike humans, horses rely heavily on fermentation by a number of different species of bacteria to digest plant material in the large intestine. Changes in diet, stress and exercise can lead to imbalances between the different species of bacteria, which in turn can upset the environment in the hindgut and cause overgrowth of bad bacteria.
Fungal toxins (mycotoxins) which are common feed contaminants, but difficult or impossible to detect without laboratory testing, can lead to growth impairment, poor condition, poor health and poor performance.
Why is our Gut Balancer Unique?
Gut Balancer contains a protected live yeast of the species Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The yeast inside each granule is protected from acidity, heat and moisture by a layer of dead yeast cells which enhances stability meaning that more yeast cells reach the hindgut alive. Micro-organisms such as yeast have beneficial effects and are often referred to as ‘probiotics’. In the hindgut, probiotics such as specific species of yeasts if fed in sufficient amounts, and in a formulation that ensure they survive the conditions in the stomach and small intestines, can influence the balance between good and bad bacterial species.
By using the unique protection system, you can ensure the optimum level of live yeast reaches the hindgut without being affected by the aforementioned conditions.
Benefits include stabilisation of conditions in the large intestine, resulting in the stimulation of natural fermentative activity, improving fibre digestion and helping to realise and unlock potential from forages such as hay and haylage, aiding the efficiency of digestion.
