Gut Balancer Express is a balanced combination of Pre and Pro-Biotics and contains a specially protected live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) at very high levels, which ensures that high enough numbers of live yeast cells reach the hindgut to beneficially influence hindgut function rapidly and effectively. The yeast inside each granule is protected from acidity, heat, and moisture by a layer of dead yeast cells to enhance stability of the yeast, meaning that more yeast cells reach the hindgut alive. Micro-organisms which have a beneficial effect on health when eaten (such as yeast) are often referred to as probiotics; when translated this means literally "for life". Gut Balancer Express also contains a source of mannanoligosaccharide (MOS) and betaglucans, which help stimulate the growth of good bacteria, support the immune functions of the GI tract, and bind mycotoxins produced by fungal contamination of feed.
Hindgut disturbance in horses can lead to serious problems if not managed effectively. 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, poor health and poor performance. 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. The benefits include stabilization of the conditions in the large intestine resulting in the stimulation of natural fermentative activity, improving fiber digestion to help realize and unlock nutrient potential from forages, and aid the overall efficiency of digestion.
Gut Balancer Express should be fed when fast and effective gut support is required such as change of diet, travelling, worming, during antibiotic treatment, and with sudden stress or change in environment.
