Why feed Probiotics?
The domestication of horses has lead to changes in feeding which the horse's body is not designed to deal with. Horses are designed to live on roughage diets high in fibre and trickle feed throughout the day, but domestication has led to feeding bulk feeds of cereals which are high in starch and simple sugars.
Starches and sugars are usually digested in the small intestine but this can only cope with small quantities at a time. Any undigested starch passes into the hindgut where it rapidly ferments, leading to a build up of acidity which affects the hindgut environment. The hindgut contains friendly bacteria, yeasts, fungi and protozoa which assist in the fermentation process and help get rid of the "bad guys", pathogenic microflora. The population of microflora in the gut is constantly changing, and levels are affected by factors such as increased acidity levels due to high levels of starch from cereal diets which is deterimental to "friendly bacteria".
Millions of friendly bacteria die naturally and are lost from your horse's digestive tract daily. Replenshing the healthy balance of "friendly bacteria" is vital to normal digestion and immune function, helping your horse to maintain weight, condition, health and vitality. Live yeast is scientifically proven to help maintain this healthy balance of "friendly bacteria".
There are many probiotics on the market, but if you check out their ingredients there are very few which contain live yeast, which is the ingredient that help maintains gut flora.
Millions of friendly bacteria are lost from your horse's digestive tract every day. 70% of your horse's immune system depends on a healthy intestine. Stress, age, diet, travel, antibiotics and worming can impact on your horse's natural defences.
