Features & Benefits
gutWise™ Nutrient Release Technology
A proprietary blend of prebiotics, probiotics, marine-sourced calcium and NutriVantage® for horses helps maintain total digestive health. These components are delivered in an exclusive extruded form to help support nutrient digestibility and availability.
Stable Digestive Environment
Probiotics and prebiotics aid in maintaining digestive health and microbial fermentation for sustained nutrient digestibility, absorption and assimilation.
Bioavailable marine-sourced calcium helps support gastric pH and health.
NutriVantage® for horses incorporates exclusive components that may help aid in nutrient availability and maintenance of a healthy gut environment for immune support.
Limited Starch and Sugar
A low starch and sugar diet is often recommended by veterinarians and nutritionists for horses with metabolic and digestive challenges.
A sequential release of energy from fat and fermentable fiber provides lower starch calories to meet complex energy demands and help maintain normal digestive health.
Healthy Rate of Intake
The light and airy nature of extruded feeds may facilitate the breakdown of feed while encouraging slow consumption and more thorough chewing for maintaining digestive health.
Nutrient Density and Release
A nutrient dense diet means more nutrition by weight, potentially delivering more of what your horse needs in less feed for ideal health and body condition.
Fiber sources such as soybean hulls and beet pulp may help maintain healthy hind-gut fermentation while providing extra calories in a safe and natural form.
Antioxidant nutrients including stable vitamins and biologically available trace minerals help maintain normal health and metabolism.
Body Tissue & Integrity
Amino acids such as lysine, methionine and threonine are important for growth and maintenance of all tissues including bone, muscle, hoof and hair.
Healthy Skin and Hair Coat
Sources of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids plus protein, B-vitamins and trace mineral complexes may help promote healthy skin, hair coat and hoof condition.
Omega-3 fatty acids, stable vitamins and balanced minerals may help maintain joint and bone health and strength.
