In words, "Absorption." As you can imagine, what your horse's gut does with the food it takes in is a veritable miracle. I have always wondered if we could insert a tiny camera in some feed and watch what happens in the entire gastrointestinal tract. Let's look at a basic feed pellet and take a journey.

Top-grade feeds will lean heavily on proteins (about 12-16%) and add varying amounts of carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. If ingested with an appropriate amount of water, these nutrients begin to digest and then take off in all directions so they can be absorbed and do what they are designed to do to feed the various systems of your animal.

Please allow me to generalize for the sake of illustration here. Our little camera goes into the stomach, and a miracle of digestion takes place at various speeds and degrees of completeness. Here is where our camera has to clone itself into tens of thousands of tiny cameras to follow this source of life and energy through about 70 feet of intestines and break off to go to the right places and do the right thing like a traffic cop.

Total Gut Health Supplements for Horses - Horse Digestive Supplements

To help answer my original question, let's look at our Ramard Total Gut Health. A proven horse digestive supplement and a topline for horses.This supplement's advantage is its formulation of a state-of-the-art ingredient called TGH. TGH promotes the growth of healthy intestinal microflora, helping to support intestinal health and immune function while replacing efficiency lost with compromised GI systems. TGH supports the body's normal healing processes and mucosal lining.

TGH was formulated to help with the following issues:

  • Poor absorption
  • The discomfort of the intestines due to an overabundance of bacteria
  • Occasional loose stool or stomach upset induced by changes in the environment, stress, or dietary changes
  • Supports normal stomach pH and maintains proper gut flora
  • Colic caused by sand and other materials
  • Prevents free radical damage
  • Supports the protective layers of the bowel

As I said at the beginning, a well-functioning horse gut is a veritable miracle, so give it as much help as possible.

Thanks for being a Caring Horse Owner.
