Gut Balancer contains a specially protected live yeast which ensures that high enough numbers of live yeast cells reach the hindgut to beneficially influence hindgut function. The rate at which it is fed also delivers the highest amount of yeast compared to any other product on the market ensuring it is highly and rapidly effective. Gut Balancer also contains a source of mannanoligosaccharide (MOS) and betaglucans, which help stimulate the growth of good bacteria and bind mycotoxins produced by fungal contamination of feed. In two studies in horses with loose droppings and diarrhoea, feeding Gut Balancer for a period of just 7 days resulted in improvements in GI health

Hindgut disturbance in horses can lead to problems such as loose droppings, failure to maintain weight and condition, or to more serious conditions such as colic or laminitis. Unlike us, 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, decreased resistance to bacteria and viruses and damage to the liver and kidneys resulting in 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 which have a beneficial effect on health when eaten are often referred to as probiotics; when translated this means literally “for life”. 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 our unique protection system, we ensure the optimum level of live yeast reaches the hindgut without being affected by the conditions above. The benefits include stabilisation of the conditions in the large intestine resulting in the stimulation of natural fermentative activity, improving fibre digestion helping to realise and unlock potential from forages such as hay and haylage and improving the efficiency of digestion.

Gut Balancer should be fed on a daily basis to help support a healthy Gastrointestinal (GI) tract and to reduce the risk of hindgut disturbance (e.g. colic). It is also ideal for older horses, poor doers and horses and ponies that lose condition at any time of year. Gut Balancer should also be fed to horses or ponies with acute GI disturbance (e.g. diarrhoea) and at times of increased risk of GI disturbance such as increased stress, travelling, competition, change of yard or a change in hay or feed etc.
