ForeFront Equine ForeRespiratory is designed to help support healthy, optimal lung function to aid top performance in equine athletes. It contains a proprietary blend of high-quality herbs to help protect horses exposed to pollution, dust and mold. ForeRespiratory also contains BeneCell™, a special blend of purified nucleotides that has proven equine research backing it for its ability to improve oxygen intake during performance. Additionally, this supplement contains equine-specific probiotics and colostrum. 1 pound. Details of each key ingredient follow.

Proprietary Herb Blend: Formulated with a world-renowned herbalist, the proprietary herbal blend in ForeRespiratory is designed to help support optimal lung function and maintain the integrity of a healthy respiratory tract. It includes ginger, which has been found to support lung function by increasing lung capacity. Animals with a compromised airway encounter a faster loss of lung capacity than those with optimal lung function. Decreased lung capacity impairs bodily functions, physical activity and appetite. The blend also includes coriander, sage, yucca and licorice, all of which have shown the ability to support respiratory health. 

BeneCell: A proprietary blend of purified nucleotides and other essential nutrients. Nucleotides play a critical role in the body by accelerating the cell proliferation process (cell regeneration).  Cell regeneration allows an animal to recover much quicker from any type of stress it is under (performance, illness, disease, injury, etc.).  As one of the most researched ingredients for use in animal diets, BeneCell is well-documented for its support in lung function.

Equine-specific Probiotic/Pebiotic Blend: The performance and health of a horse depends on the proper balance of digestive tract bacteria. Probiotics help ensure a healthy digestive tract, enhancing the immune system and defending against pathogenic agents in the digestive tract.  ForeFront Equine is the first equine company to use this unique equine-specific probiotic blend.

Dependent on the lifestyle and/or types of nutrition, the digestive tract of a horse could be subjected to minor or major alterations with possible vulnerability to disease. Thus, any disruption in the inherent nature of the GIT environment can inadvertently have unfavorable and irreparable, even tragic, consequences. Good bacteria known as probiotics are used to maintain the microbial balance of the gastrointestinal (GIT) ecosystem.

Experts agree that persistent viability of probiotics within the GIT is crucial to overall health, and that the good bacteria used in supplementation must be specific to the species. In animal products, the probiotic strains typically used are either human or bovine derived.  These are considered non-indigenous (foreign) as they are extracted from a non-species source. Each digestive tract (human or animal) has a different pH, temperature, and ecosystem. 

For this reason, ForeFront Equine uses a novel probiotic blend that includes two equine-specific probiotic strains: Lactobacillus fermentum and Lactobacillus salivarius. These indigenous strains were cultured directly from horses (in a non-harmful manner). Since they are host-specific, they can withstand the rigors of the equine digestive tract.  Supplementing your horses’ diet with a host-specific strain greatly increases the likelihood of those strains surviving in your equine athlete’s complex digestive ecosystem.

Colostrum: Nature’s first food, colostrum supplies immune and growth factors along with a perfect combination of vitamins and minerals to support overall health. Colostrum has applications for every age, stage of life and level of activity. The equine digestive system is largely responsible for good health and, unfortunately, poor health as well.  Stress, diet, NSAID, and antibiotic use can have tremendous negative consequences on your horse’s digestion.

Digestive integrity is key to a horse’s health in many ways, as it is the foundation of immunity. Studies have shown that colostrum is a powerful aid for supporting your horse’s healthy digestive tract and immune system. Studies have also shown that it can even help to repair the lining of the GI tract. One study published in The Veterinary Journal (July 2012) indicated that colostrum contains a broad array of oligosaccharides vital to the digestive health of newborn foals.

The colostrum used by ForeFront Equine comes from a proprietary treatment process that is recognized and approved by federal authorities and international product safety organizations. Gentle thermal processing techniques provide assurance against microbial contamination, while protecting superior immunoglobulin content, specific antibodies, growth factors, and other valuable components found within colostrum.
