What is it?

Gut BalancerTM is a balanced combination of Pre and Pro-Biotics and contains a specially protected live yeast which ensures that high enough numbers of live yeast cells reach the hindgut to beneficially influence hindgut function.

The rate at which it is fed is guaranteed to deliver the highest levels of Pre and Probiotics compared to any brand.  Gut BalancerTM also contains a source of mannanoligosaccharide (MOS), fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and betaglucans, which help stimulate the growth of good bacteria and bind mycotoxins produced by fungal contamination of feed. In two studies, results were seen in just 7 days.

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.

Why is our Gut Balancer Unique?

Gut BalancerTM contains a protected live yeast of the species Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The yeast inside each granule is protected from acidity, heat and moisture by a layer of dead yeast cells which enhances stability meaning that more yeast cells reach the hindgut alive. Micro-organisms such as yeast which have a beneficial effect on health when eaten are often referred to as probiotics; when translated this means literally “for life”. 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. By using our unique protection system, we ensure the optimum level of live yeast reaches the hindgut without being affected by the conditions above. The benefits include stabilisation of the conditions in the large intestine resulting in the stimulation of natural fermentative activity, improving fibre digestion helping to realise and unlock potential from forages such as hay and haylage and aid the efficiency of digestion.

Gut BalancerTM should be fed on a daily basis to help support a healthy Gastrointestinal (GI) tract and to help support gut health and aid digestion. It is also ideal for older horses, poor doers and horses and ponies that lose condition at any time of year. Gut Balancer may also be fed to horses or ponies at times of increased stress, travelling, competition, change of yard or a change in hay or feed etc.

Gut Balancer or GastroKind? What is right for my horse?

GastroKind is developed for the stomach and Gut Balancer is for the hindgut. The stomach and hindgut work in different ways and have different requirements.

What’s in it?

A highly concentrated protected probiotic and prebiotic including mannanoligosaccharide (MOS), fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and betaglucans, which help stimulate the growth of good bacteria and bind mycotoxins, which help maintain normal digestive function.

Saccharomyces Cerevisiae When feeding live yeast-based probiotics to horses it is essential that they are fed in a form which protects them from stomach acid so they reach the hindgut alive. We use a protected live yeast, which is capable of withstanding acidic conditions, but will then be broken down in the hindgut releasing the live yeast. Supplementing encapsulated live yeast can have the following benefits for horses:

  1. Supporting microflora in the caecum (hindgut)
  2. Improved fibre digestion
  3. Limiting the overproduction of lactic acid in the caecum
  4. Improved body condition
