Yeast cultures have been proven to be highly effective in keeping the microbial population in the hindgut of the horse healthy by feeding the microbes. Yeast culture interacts with gut microbes to increase fiber fermentation, protein and phosphorus digestion. Keeping the hind gut healthy is key to maintaining a healthy horse. While there are several types of ‘yeast’, it is important to choose a culture with a good research ‘track record’ in horses.
Exercise increases oxidative metabolism markedly, which results in mobilization of critical vitamins and minerals to meet increased antioxidant demand. Organic forms of minerals have been shown to increase the horse's ability to maintain a more positive mineral balance despite increased demand. This leaves the horse and particularly the equine athlete better able to cope with the effects of maximum aerobic work.
