Max Gut-Health – 4,5 kg

Omschrijving:

Gezonde darmen - Gezond paard.

Max Gut Health is een unieke combinatie van kalkhoudende zeealgen en een zeer actieve levende gist, ontworpen als een probioticum om een gezond darmmilieu bij paarden te ondersteunen.

 

Max Gut-Health werkt in op de microflora in de darmen om:

 1. De groei van vezelverterende bacteriën te bevorderen

Paarden beschikken niet over de noodzakelijke enzymen om vezels af te breken en vertrouwen op de grote populatie bacteriën in de blinde- en dikke-darm om dit te doen via een fermentatieproces. Dit resulteert in de productie van vluchtige vetzuren die een belangrijke bron vormen van "langzaam vrijkomende" energie voor alle paarden, ongeacht leeftijd, ras of werkbelasting.
Wanneer paarden een periode van stress doormaken, is de fermentatie van vezels vaak verminderd. Het bevorderen van de groei van vezelverterende bacteriën in de darm helpt de darm en de gezondheid van het dier in stand te houden.

2. De zuurophoping in de darm te verminderen door te concurreren met de melkzuurvormende bacteriën

De opname van krachtvoer in de voeding van het paard is vaak essentieel om te voldoen aan de energie-, vitamine- en mineralenbehoeften. Echter, wanneer onverteerd zetmeel en suikers uit krachtvoer in de darmen terechtkomen, produceert het microbiële fermentatieproces een hoger gehalte aan melkzuur. Dit creëert een zuurder milieu in de darmen (verlaging van de pH). De levende gist binnen Max Gut-Health concurreert met melkzuurvormende bacteriën om suikers in de dikke darm om de zuurbelasting te verminderen en zo de juiste ph-balans te behouden.

 

Naast de voordelen voor de darmgezondheid biedt Max Gut-Health een bron van biologisch beschikbaar magnesium en calcium.

Magnesium speelt een belangrijke rol bij de zenuw- en spierfunctie. Paarden met een tekort aan dit belangrijke element kunnen tekenen van nervositeit, behoedzaamheid, prikkelbaarheid en spiertrillingen vertonen; magnesium wordt vaak toegediend vanwege zijn kalmerende invloed op paarden. Veel magnesiumbronnen zijn niet volledig biologisch beschikbaar voor het paard, wat betekent dat dit mineraal de absorptie grotendeels omzeilt en wordt uitgescheiden via de ontlasting, wat bij overmaat tot diarree kan leiden. Het magnesium in Max Gut-Health is voor 98% biologisch beschikbaar, wat betekent dat het direct beschikbaar is voor opname en voor gebruik door het paard, waarbij het teveel wordt uitgescheiden via de urine. Supplementeren van Max Gut-Health helpt ervoor te zorgen dat aan de dagelijkse behoefte van het paard wordt voldaan.

Calcium is essentieel voor de sterkte van het skelet, de bloedstolling, de spiercontractie en het energiemetabolisme. In een gepubliceerde paardenonderzoekstudie waarin de kalkhoudende zeealgencomponent van Max Gut-Health werd vergeleken met calciumcarbonaat, toonden de resultaten een significant verschil in bloedmarkers van botmetabolisme (vorming en resorptie) en botdichtheid. Deze resultaten suggereren dat de ondersteuning van botdichtheid door supplementering, kan helpen bij terugkeer naar het werk (Nielsen et al., 2010) (2).

"A Healthy Gut Leads To A Healthy Horse"

We have been in the problem horse business for over 25 years, in that time I have researched and learned so much about horse behaviour and why it changes. 

This product for many horses has been a game changer. A healthy gut leads to a healthy horse

DID YOU KNOW...

Max Gut-Health promotes the growth of fibre digesting bacteria..

When horses undergo a period of stress, fibre fermentation is often decreased. Therefore, promoting the growth of fibre-degrading bacteria in the gut enhances fibre fermentation and helps to maintain a healthy gut.

AND THAT...

Max Gut-Health reduces acid accumulation in the hind-gut?

The live yeast within Max Gut-Health competes with the lactate-producing bacteria for sugars, thereby reducing acid load and helping to maintain pH within the hindgut. Maintaining a healthy gut environment optimises overall health.

How Max Gut-Health can help your horse:

- Improves feed digestibility

- Improves coat and hoof condition

- Provides a bioavailable magnesium and calcium

- Promotes good gut health during periods of stress

- Reduces lactic acid accumulation in the fore and hind gut

 

Signs Your Horse Has Acidosis

Signs that your horse could potentially have acidosis of the hind gut, (there could also be other physical reasons, always seek a vets advice).

1. Is your horse hot, you can’t put your leg on and you feel as though you are a passenger rather than a rider?

2. Does your horse cramp behind when jumping?

3. Are they funny about having a hind leg picked up?

4. They aren’t muscling up quite as you would expect?

5. General tightness through the body?

6. Loose droppings?

7. Suffer from tying up (Azoturia)?

8. Poor dooer (horses though can still look really well and still have a low level of acidosis of the hind gut.) Horses that are systemically challenged will take longer to come right.

9. Are they generally grumpy or grumpy when you doing their girth or grooming in that general area?

10. You have treated for ulcers with the vet and they return.

Max Gut-Health has the potential to help many of these issues (providing they are gut related and not another physical reason).

 

The Importance Of Good Gut Health

Horses have evolved to ingest small quantities of fibrous feeds on an almost continual basis, spending approximately 80% of their time foraging or feeding in the wild. As a result, they can efficiently digest large quantities of fibre but are less able to digest starchy concentrates. Understanding the digestive physiology of the horse helps to comprehend the myriad of health issues it is susceptible to in modern management practices.

It has been widely documented that maintaining the horse’s digestive health is an essential contributor to sustaining overall horse health, with good digestive health being linked to increased performance, behaviour and immunity. It is therefore essential to understand the fundamentals of the equine digestive tract to make more appropriate feeding and management choices.



Digestive Physiology Of The Horse

The digestive physiology of the horse differs from many other species in such a way that its gastrointestinal tract can be split into two sections. 
  1. The foregut (pre-cecal) being remarkably similar to the monogastric species’ simple stomach, like a pig or a dog. 
  1. The hind gut being comparable to that of a cows rumen relying on the symbiotic relationship with microorganisms to digest the fibre portion of the ration.

Figure 1: The difference in digestion type, size, capacity and % of gastrointestinal tract between the foregut and the hindgut in the horse. (Atlas of Topographical anatomy of the domestic animals, P. Popesko, 2008) The stomach and the hindgut have a large role in maintaining horse health: 

 

The Stomach

The importance of the equine stomach is often overlooked due to its small size (figure 1) and low fermentation capacity in comparison to the hindgut. However, the stomach’s upper and lower regions have an important role in equine digestion. The upper region of the stomach also known as the ‘non-glandular region’ contains a small quantity of microorganisms, initiating the fibre fermentation process when the pH is at the desired level of 5.0 – 7.0 (towards neutral).

The lower region known as the ‘glandular region’ secretes both hydrochloric acid for feed material breakdown and pepsin enzymes to start protein digestion. As the glandular region secretes acid in varying quantities throughout the day, the pH remains acidic at 2.0 – 3.0. It also has a protective mucosal layer to prevent the acidic environment from causing damage to the stomach lining. 

The pH of the two stomach regions can be maintained when the horse is able to display its natural feeding behaviour. This is due to the almost continual forage consumption both stimulating saliva production which has low levels of acid buffering activity and aiding the maintenance of a stable feed passage rate. 
 

Stomach Issues In Modern Feeding Practices

Issues arise in the stomach when the acidity in the upper non-glandular region drops below pH 5.0, as it is susceptible to damage due to the absence of the acid protecting mucosal lining found in the lower glandular region.

The non-glandular region can become more acidic for numerous reasons: 

  • - Low fibre diet
  • - Large concentrate meals 
  • - Insufficient fibre:concentrate ratio 
  • - Long periods of time without consuming feed
  • - Transportation/exercise/stabling stress
  • - Poor appetite/changed eating behaviour
  • - Weight loss and difficulties in maintaining normal body condition
  • - Poor coat condition
  • - Reduced performance
  • - Behaviour changes
  • - Abdominal discomfort
  • - Crib biting 

Figure 2: Possible clinical signs in horses with EGUS. A horse can have EGUS and display none of the above so should be assessed on an individual basis. (Luthersson and Nadeau, 2013). 

Maintaining a healthy stomach environment is therefore essential to help maintain horse health and reduce the occurrence of other common issues (figure 2). 



The Hindgut

As highlighted in Figure 1, digestion in the hindgut is largely microbial rather than enzymatic. This means that digestion in the hindgut is performed by billions of symbiotic bacteria which efficiently breakdown plant fibres into simpler compounds called ‘volatile fatty acids’ (VFAs) and undigested starches into lactic acid, which can then be absorbed through the gut wall as a source of energy for the horse. 

The pH of 6.5-7 in the hindgut is at the optimal level for the microorganisms to work effectively. In addition, to allow the microorganisms time to act on the fibre the passage rate of feedstuffs is much slower in the hindgut when compared to the foregut (5hrs verses 35hrs on average). 

 

3 Top Tips To Maintain Gastrointestinal Health

- Minimum of 1.0 – 1.5 kg of forage/100kg body weight and provide forage ad-libitum. 
- Provision of a gut health supplement to help maintain optimal pH. 
- Split concentrate meals into small meals across the day.

Hindgut Issues In Modern Feeding Practices

The provision of starch via concentrate feed is common, yet the horse’s gastrointestinal tract regularly can’t cope with the quantity provided. 

Starch is digested via the enzymatic action in the foregut, however, fast passage rate and limited digestive action means that the digestive capacity of the foregut is easily exceeded. As a result, some undigested starch can pass into the hindgut where its subsequent fermentation increases the amount of lactic acid produced (figure 3), which in turn decreases the pH and changes the type of microbes present in the hindgut. The reduction in pH from 6.5-7 to 4.0-6.0 (more acidic) in the hindgut causes some of the desirable fibre-fermenting bacteria to die and stimulates the reproduction of lactate-producing bacteria in the hindgut. This extenuates the issue as lactic acid producing bacteria proliferate in an acidic environment making it more difficult for the horse to overcome the challenge. Hindgut acidosis is linked to a variety of equine health and behaviour issues (figure 3) further highlighting the need to maintain gastrointestinal health.
