Some people believe that probiotics do not work for horses and they may have good cause to believe this. Some equine probiotic products do not actually contain true probiotic organisms and probiotic products that are contained in processed feed are often not live - or true probiotics. Many other probiotic products use temperature sensitive ingredients that are not live or reproducible and/or do not survive the stomach acid in significant enough quantities to be effective in a horse’s hind gut.
The Equine Choice Probiotic and Prebiotic product contains organisms that the horse would get if he were grazing in a natural environment for several hours day and night. They are temperature stable, live, reproducing probiotic organisms that survive stomach acid and can reach the hind gut alive in large enough quantities to make a positive impact on the hind gut microbes. They are not a drug and do not test.
Research shows that beneficial gut microbes are key players in maintaining healthy mucosal linings throughout the digestive tract. High numbers of these beneficial digestive microbes are important for effective digestion, allowing helpful nutrients to pass through intestinal walls and blocking unwanted substances from passing into the body cavity ( as happens with leaky gut syndrome). The mucosal lining is an integral part of the body's immune system, is involved with hormone regulation, and plays an important role in hydration, ensuring proper water and electrolyte absorption is happening in the hind gut.
