We often tend to forget that a high percentage of the immune system is located in the gut, which is crucial for regulating immune homeostasis (stability) and health. Gut Gold is a nutritional supplement scientifically made to focus on achieving gut health. Gut Gold contains both Probiotics and Prebiotics - live yeast Saccharomyces Cerevisiae CNCM I-1077 (Probiotics) and a balanced combination of Mannooligosaccharide (MOS) and Beta-glucans (Prebiotics).

Probiotics in Gut Gold

To be considered a probiotic, the bacteria included must be alive when administered. In order to be effective, it should be alive through the GI tract and when it reaches the hindgut. The life of the bacteria can easily be diminished through heat, cold and the journey through the horse’s entire digestive system to reach the hindgut.  These life diminishing challenges for the live bacteria may lead to the probiotic not being as effective, if even effective at all. The unique live yeast used in Gut Gold has a patented microencapsulation technique. This creates the variety of in Saccharomyces Cerevisiae known as CNCM I-1077. Fatty acids are used successfully in this microencapsulation technique to provide protection from environmental aspects. This is a critically important consideration to ensure the live bacteria gets to work where it can be most beneficial for the horse.

Prebiotics in Gut Gold

Unlike probiotics, prebiotics for horses do not introduce new bacteria to the digestive tract. Prebiotics act to promote the health and growth of microorganisms already living in your horse’s digestive tract. Prebiotics essentially act as a food source for your horse’s existing gut microbes. The balanced combination of Mannooligosaccharide (MOS) and Beta-glucans help horse’s good bacteria to thrive.

Quality is the main focus for all ingredients used in Gut Gold. The prebiotic ingredients come with quality certificates for every batch of the MOS and beta-glucan content within the product.

The unique ingredients are coupled with a quality focus. This makes Gut Gold a gold standard digestive supplement for equine gut health. For more information, please contact our expert team or click here.
