Supporting the Equine Digestive System

Let’s review the functions of the digestive system:

➡ Breaks down food into a simple form to prepare for absorption

➡ Absorbs nutrients

➡ Contains the microbiome which aid in digestion

➡ Acts as a barrier with tight-junctions to stop invaders from entering the bloodstream

➡ Contains about 70% of the immune system

We target specific areas to support the gut, specifically the intestinal wall and the microbiome.

Maintaining gut health:

Equine Gut Support is a comprehensive supplement that contains some of the most helpful items to support gut health. It includes Bio-Mos®, Yea-Sacc®, glutamine, aloe vera, slippery elm and beta glucans.

Equine Ulcer Support is a supplement that promotes a healthy
stomach when ulcers are suspected.

Yea-Sacc® is a probiotic, based on saccharomyces cerevisiae 1026®, which promotes greater digestion of fiber, enhancing the uptake of energy.

Bio-Mos® is a prebiotic, rich in a proprietary mannan oligosaccharide, specifically supporting the “good” microflora. This supports a healthy immune system.

Integral A+® is a supplement designed to bind mycotoxins. This is especially important when the feed may be suspect. It was designed to bind mycotoxins in grains, hay and pastures.

Glutamine is an amino acid that supports the growth of intestinal villi, a healthy intestinal barrier, and tight junctions; reduces inflammatory signaling which helps protect against stress.

We want our horses to be as healthy as possible. A key factor in that is good gut health.
