Science Supplements® Gut Balancer Horse Hindgut Support helps supports gut health and aid digestion. It offers a balanced combination of pre- and probiotics, with optimum levels of protected live yeast. Results may be seen in as little as 48 hours.

Winner of the BETA International Innovation Awards, Gut Balancer is a balanced combination of prebiotics and probiotics and contains a specially protected live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) at very high levels to help ensure that high enough numbers of live yeast cells reach the hindgut to beneficially influence hindgut function rapidly and effectively.

The yeast inside each granule is protected from acidity, heat and moisture by a layer of dead yeast cells to enhance stability of the yeast, meaning that more yeast cells reach the hindgut alive. Micro-organisms which have a beneficial effect on health when eaten (such as yeast) are often referred to as probiotics; when translated this means literally “for life.”

Gut Balancer also contains a source of prebiotics, including mannanoligosaccharide (MOS), fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and betaglucans, which help stimulate the growth of good bacteria, promote the immune functions of the GI tract, bind mycotoxins produced by fungal contamination of feed, and positively influence the pH and help stabilize the microbial population of the hindgut. In two studies, improvement in fecal scores were seen in just seven days.

Unlike humans, horses rely heavily on fermentation by a number of different species of bacteria to digest plant material in the large intestine. Changes in diet, deworming, antibiotic use, 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. In the hindgut, probiotics like the specific species of yeasts found in GutBalancer, if fed in sufficient amounts and in a formulation that ensure they survive the conditions in the stomach and small intestines, may influence the balance between good and bad bacterial species. The benefits of providing probiotics includes stabilization of the conditions in the large intestine resulting in the stimulation of natural fermentative activity, improved fiber digestion to help realize and unlock potential nutrients from forages, and aiding the overall efficiency of digestion.

Gut Balancer can be fed on a daily basis to help support a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) tract and to help support overall health and aid digestion. It is also ideal for older horses, poor doers, and horses and ponies that lose condition or have a hard time gaining or maintain weight. Gut Balancer may also be fed to horses or ponies at times of increased stress, travelling, competition, change of housing, or a change in hay or feed.
