Intestinal health and hygiene and a good liver function are essential to the horse’s well-being and ability to perform ... Good nutritional management not only relates to the choices of diet in terms of roughage and concentrate quality and quantity depending on the horse’s life stage and work level; but also to ensure the health of the organs that process this carefully selected food. Top of the list of systems under review are those that constitute the intricately linked hepatic and gastrointestinal systems. The gastrointestinal tract is not only responsible for the absorption of nutrients (vitamins and minerals) but is also responsible for their synthesis as well, not forgetting of course the vital role it plays in water balance. The liver likewise is at the centre of the nutrient processing system not to mention the detoxification and elimination of undesirable elements.



For the development and maintenance of a healthy gastrointestinal tract

Readily assimilated cereal sources (flaked oats, barley and wheat) provide a valuable energy source to the horse during periods of intestinal tract is under attack. Linseed and sunflower are energy rich as well as their polyunsaturated fatty acid profile. Burdock is a rich source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS), mucilage and bioflavonoids that support normal intestinal transit and local immune defences. Milk whey protein, rich in globular proteins and in glutamine not only provides an energy source for cells lining the intestine, vital for their integrity and peptide elements that help support local immune defences.
