Pre-biotics provide support and energy to the ‘good’ bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract. Good bacteria in the gut compete with pathogenic bacteria and inhibit the growth of the pathogenic “bugs.” By supporting good bacteria in the digestive system, the horse is able to efficiently absorb the nutrients in feed.
A reliable source of prebiotics is live yeast cultures. Yeast culture products contain proteins that include enzymes such as protease and amylase, which help horses, especially young horses, digest fiber. These cultures are often combined with bacterial fermentation products. Dead yeast cultures, such as brewer’s yeast, do not provide the same benefits as live cultures.
Benefits of pre-biotics include:
Improved gut health
Improved feed efficiency
Improved nutrient absorption
Reduced risk of digestive upsets
Reduced stress impact during competition or diet changes
