“Digestive Nutrient-Antacid Combination”
Formula of nutrients to support normal pH and aid in buffering the stomach lining from damaging acids that can be produced during heavy exercise.
The Inside Scoop...
Studies have revealed that gastric ulcers occur in up to 90% of performance horses. Gastric ulcers cause poor appetites, colic symptoms, poor performance, weight loss and discomfort. The horse's saliva acts as a buffer to the naturally occuring acids present in the stomach lining. When saliva is not available due to heavy training and elapsed time between feedings, the stomach lining is unprotected. Antacid formulas aid in buffering the stomach lining during excessive exercise and stress. Gelatin contains a number of amino acids (histidine, lysine, leucin, tryptophan, valine, phylalanine, methionine, threonine, and isoleucine); amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and act as buffering agents.
