Fine Fettle Feed Happy Tummy (Equine)
The principal way in which Happy Tummy charcoal works is by re-balancing the acid/alkaline of the digestive system. It is comparable to passing a superb biological filter through the system where it adsorbs toxins and re-balances without adding anything to, or burdening, the system in any way. Its role is a passive one.The re-balancing of the pH facilitates an environment where minerals, vitamins and nutrients are utilised at their optimum. The trickle feeding of Happy Tummy to equines on a daily basis helps maintain condition, good temperament and excellent performance all round. For equines with gut-related problems this is the safest and most effective feed supplement with which to address these issues. Results are very quick, there are no detrimental side effects, it’s easy to use and very economical.
WHAT IT IS:Happy Tummy™ is made up of specially selected, 100% pure hardwood charcoal sourced from sustainable woodlands. It contains no fillers, binders or additives. It is made from naturally active charcoal produced in a traditional way. We chose a particular hardwood charcoal for our product because of its superior and special properties. NOTE: This type of charcoal is an approved feed material, whereas activated or medicinal / industrial charcoal is not an approved feed material.
Charcoal – a Brief History & an explanation of Charcoal & ‘Activated’ Charcoal:Charcoal is naturally active / adsorbent and has a long history of use as a filter, as an adsorbent, and as an antidote to poisons. Historical records of its use in these areas and others go far back into history as early as 1500 BC in Egypt. Hippocrates, circa 400 BC and then Pliny, AD 50 recorded the use of charcoal in a wide range of applications, and the principal use appears to have been to adsorb unpleasant odours, and gas/smells from within the intestinal tract. ‘Activated’ (also known as medicinal) charcoal is new to mammals and our civilization. It was created initially for industrial use and commercial production of powdered activated carbon began in Europe in the early 19th century when it was widely used in the sugar industry. It is made from charcoal which has been subjected to the man-made processes of extreme high temperature steam and / or acid washing, to produce super adsorbents. Its use in other applications spread rapidly when it was accidentally discovered that it was effective in decolourising liquids. Industrial scale production began in the early part of the 20th century and the products are known as PAC (powered activated carbon) or GAC (granular activated carbon). Both are highly super adsorbents and, depending on the raw material used (e.g. nut shells), some can be even more so. Happy Tummy ™ charcoal is made from hardwoods (sustainably sourced) and is naturally ‘active’ and adsorbent. It is not ‘activated’ and is the type of charcoal we and other mammals have evolved with over the millennia. Its long legacy and history of safe and benign use stands witness to its efficacy.
