There are many over the counter products on the market which support or balance gut health. A proportion of these products are pro or prebiotics relating to the support of good bacteria and the rest are antacids which offer protection by coating the surface. Gastro- g is the only product on the market which supports the horses own naturally occurring renewing processes, helping to strengthen and support normal gut function. Horses stabled for long periods, competing horses and those travelling have limited access to grazing and even less access to vital plant nutrients which help build healthy tissue. Modern diets are dependent on too few ingredients and are unlikely to supply the full range of nutrients which support the horses own ability to renew and build strong healthy tissue.
Good gut health depends primarily on the quality and thickness of the mucus lining, if the mucosal membrane is breached or becomes compromised through the stresses and strains of the modern restricted turn out, training and competing lifestyle it cannot renew or regenerate itself as fast as nature intended.
Gastro G contains a wide range of plant nutrients to replace what is missing in today’s diet.
How to feed
Gastro–g can be given as a one month course (a 1kg tub will provide a 500 kg horse with a one month course). This can be repeated twice per year and is particularly useful to use once during the Autumn/Winter season and once during the midsummer end of July/August. For horses involved in competing and travelling a full course is recommended followed by a half dose for two weeks and then a quarter daily dose for maintenance purposes.
This product is formulated to comply with the FEI and recommended up until 24hrs prior to racing for the BHA.
