The research is still emerging, but so far the results have been positive regarding the benefits of horse probiotics and digestive enzymes for a healthy gut flora. Which is something Basic Equine Nutrition is happy to help our equine community with via our new product – ‘Probio Max’!

So …What Are the Benefits of Horse Probiotics?

Both horses and humans alike can benefit from probiotics, aiding in intestinal flora and creating a ripple effect including…

  • Improving digestion
  • Reducing digestive upset
  • Natural antibiotic properties

There is still much to be learned regarding the microbiome; but such research is quickly emerging. Along with it, so too is the amazing nature and importance of both probiotics and digestive enzymes for a healthy gut flora.

How Do You Know If Your Horse Needs Probiotics?

As simple as it may sound; when a horse alternates between hay feed and grass grazing, it can actually upset the delicate function of their gut flora. In addition, stress from travel, seasonal changes and activities, along with a variety of other factors, can attribute to a horse’s digestive flux.

So how do you know if your horse needs probiotics? Here are some reasons why you may want to consider a supplement such as Probio Max:

  • To give young foals a head-start with their digestive system
  • To assist in the recovery process from an infection
  • To counteract stress and the effects of it
  • To help process dietary changes
  • To manage diarrhea or minor colic
  • To assist older horses with more efficient digestion
