Mad Barn’s Optimum Probiotic is a blend of 5 pure bacterial strains shown to promote healthy intestinal flora, digestive comfort, and immunity in the horse.
Their once-daily equine probiotic supplement has been scientifically formulated for regular maintenance of gut health and for preventing digestive issues.
Optimum Probiotic is a highly concentrated formula consisting of 5 probiotic strains that are resistant to stomach acid, bile and digestive enzymes, working to populate your horse’s gastrointestinal tract with beneficial microorganisms.
Each serving of Optimum Probiotic provides a guaranteed minimum of 20 billion viable CFUs (Colony Forming Units) of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum, and Enterococcus faecium.
WHY USE OPTIMUM PROBIOTIC?
Probiotic bacteria exist naturally throughout your horse’s gastrointestinal tract, playing an important role in metabolism, nutrient absorption, vitamin & protein synthesis, feed efficiency and overall digestion. These beneficial microorganisms also help to maintain appropriate pH balance by producing lactic acid, inhibiting the growth of pathogens and supporting the immune system.
However, the delicate balance between good bacteria and bad bacteria is frequently upset by changes in diet, excess grain consumption, stress, environmental factors, illness, medication use and more. If your horse’s gut microbiota becomes imbalanced, dysbiosis can occur leading to potential symptoms including:
- Diarrhea or loose stools
- Abdominal pain, bloating or constipation
- Colitis, laminitis or colic
- Impaired immune function
- Gastric Ulcer Disease
- Weight loss or ill thrift
- Systemic inflammation
- Poor skin & coat quality
- And more…
Regular use of direct-fed microbials like our Optimum Probiotic supplement can prevent dysbiosis by seeding the horse’s gut with large quantities of beneficial bacteria, maintaining a favourable microflora population.
