What is Max’s Gut health?
Max-Gut Health is a unique combination of calcareous marine algae and a highly active live yeast, designed as a probiotic to support a healthy gut environment in horses.
Max-Gut health’s acts on the gut microflora to:
0. Promote the growth of fibre digesting bacteria
Horses do not have the necessary enzymes to break down fibre and rely on the large population of bacteria present in the hind-gut to carry this out through a process of fermentation. This results in the production of volatile fatty acids that provide a significant source of ‘slow release’ energy for all horses irrespective of age, breed or workload.
When horses undergo a period of stress fibre fermentation is often decreased. Therefore, promoting the growth of fibre digesting bacteria in the gut reduces the extent of this reduction and helps to maintain gut and animal health.
2. Reduce acid accumulation in the hindgut by competing with lactic acid forming bacteria
The inclusion of concentrates in the horse’s diet is often essential to meet energy, vitamin and mineral requirements. However, when undigested starch and sugars from concentrates reach the hindgut, the microbial fermentation process produces a higher level of lactic acid. This creates a more acidic environment in the hindgut (lowering the pH),
The live yeast within Max-gut health competes with the lactic acid forming bacteria for sugars in the hindgut to reduce the acid load helping to maintain the correct ph balance.
