Equine Gold, the renowned digestive health supplement, has now become Gut Gold. It is the same great product just with a fresh new name.
Same Unique Ingredients
A significant percentage of the immune system is located in the gut, which is critical for regulating immune homeostasis (stability) and overall health. Gut Gold is a nutritional supplement scientifically designed 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, the bacteria should be alive through the GI tract and when it reaches the hindgut. The life of this bacteria can easily be diminished through heat, cold as well as by 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 which 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 the horse’s digestive tract. Prebiotics essentially act as a food source for the horse’s existing gut microbes. The balanced combination of Mannooligosaccharide (MOS) and Beta-glucans help the 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, coupled with a quality focus and long shelf life, makes Gut Gold a gold standard digestive supplement for equine gut health. For more information, please contact our team on 051 304010 or click here.
