Pre & Probiotics For Horses


Horses are hind gut fermenters which means the hind gut is the primary region of fibre digestion. In the hind gut beneficial micro organisms act synergisticly to digest fibre. However, correct hind gut micro flora populations depend on good nutrition, beneficial bacteria, pH and limiting exposure to pathogens.

Effective administration of technical feed ingredients into the hind gut requires these ingredients to be encapsulated or protected.

The inclusion of research proven encapsulated live yeast (Levucell Se) in Maxia Digest ensures populations of good bacteria are maintained in the hind gut to stablilise the hind gut microbiomes 

Maxia Digest contains the following pre and probiotics:
  • Probiotic Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1077 Micro Encapsulated live yeast (LevucellSC) selected for its capacity to optimise hindgut (the site of microbial fibre digestion) function in horses and enhance the natural process of digestion  Limits undesirable changes in the intestinal microbial ecosystem, helps to stabilise the gut microflora in stressful conditions, optimise feed digestibility & aid healthy probiotic development.
  • Prebiotic Oligofructose are selectively fermented ingredients that nourish and stimulate growth of beneficial bacteria, benefiting the horse by enhancing the absorption and retention of certain minerals, which in turn can support the immune system and skeletal tissue.  Helps to improve the survival, implantation and growth of newly added probiotic strains.
  • Prebiotic Mannan-Oligosaccharides Enriched Yeast Fractions help to bind pathogens and limit their adhesion to the gastro intestinal tract, allowing the development of a beneficial microflora able to use Mannans as an energy source Contributes to the regulation of the intestinal flora to allow optimal nutrient absorption, enhancing digestibility and supporting immune response.  Helps to improve the survival, implantation and growth of newly added probiotic strains & healthy probiotic creation.
