NUTRITION: Postbiotics



A postbiotic is: “a preparation of inanimate microorganisms and/or their components that confers a health benefit on the host”. Postbiotics can have a positive effect on the beneficial bacteria within the horse’s gut, which can support: mobility, digestion, and immunity.


More than 70 percent of your horse’s immune system is found in their gut. That’s why gut health is linked to immune health. It’s also why probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics are an essential part of keeping your horses healthy. So what’s the difference between prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics?


Probiotics are the “good” or “friendly” bacteria that promote a healthy digestive tract and work to break down and digest food. Prebiotics are fuel for probiotics, support their growth, and help the immune system keep bad bacteria under control. When you feed prebiotics to probiotics, you get postbiotics. Simply put, prebiotics + probiotics = postbiotics.
