Source of extra energy during hardwork, competition and long distance running
Improves horses performance and endurance
Boost immune system and prevents against infection
Yeast Cell wall
yeast also increases efficiency of energy production in animals like cattle and horses that ferment fiber via microbial breakdown. Although the exact mechanism remains elusive, one theory is that the yeast feeds the beneficial bacteria that convert fiber into energy in the cow’s rumen and the horse’s hindgut.
Although all horses can benefit from more efficient energy production, this is of extra importance to senior horses, whose ability to break down fiber eventually decreases, sometimes resulting in declining body condition.
Feeding probiotics and enzymes is a preventive therapy; when a horse is given a balanced source it complements and ensures that the horse is efficiently and effectively digesting his feed for maximum absorption of nutrients. Digestive enzymes along with probiotics assist the horse to utilize more of his usual and daily feed rations by supporting the entire digestive process.
Which horses could benefit from OPTIMUM HORSE SUPPLEMENT
- Apart from good doers, all horses will benefit from being able to get more from the fibre that they consume as this means needing less cereal-based feed. Manufactures of quality foods are thus including them in a wide range of products.
- Horses vulnerable to digestive upsets, such as the young and the old.
- Horses with diarrhoea, colic or really foul smelling or loose droppings.
- Underweight horses.
- Horses that get excited or stressed when they compete or travel often urinate more frequently and some also develop very loose droppings. They may also come back from a show all tucked-up and pre- and probiotics are sometimes able to help this.
- Starved horses – bacteria are alive and like any other living organism need a food supply. If a horse has been starved then it is likely that the friendly bacteria will have been too.
- Injured or sick horses on box rest. This often means a sudden change of diet and many also require antibiotics/medications, all of which makes them vulnerable to digestive upsets.
- Horse with gastric ulcers or nutrition-related laminitis. Pre- and Probiotics will not cure the disease but they may help to reduce the risk of further problems such as colic.
IMPORTANT: For the best results and for the good of the horse I do recommend feeding them on a ‘regular’ if not daily basis.
Double the dose during competition, feeding the normal amounts at other times, and also have good results.
