Ekygard Digestive Support for Horses is a feed supplement that protects your horse’s stomach lining and reduces gastric acidity.
Ekygard is an ideal solution to help protect the stomach lining against acid attack. Ekygard's complete formula has a global action on your horse's stomach: it protects the gastric mucosa via a coating effect, reduces acidity thanks to a buffer effect and balances the bacterial flora in the digestive system. It also has a soothing and appetite-stimulating effect.
The Ekygard formula contains the 3 essential ingredients recommended by the European College of Equine Internal Medicine. These are a pectin-lecithin complex, lithothamnion and Yea-Sacc (Saccharamoyces cerevisae), a brewer's yeast.The pectin-lecithin complex forms a gel that protects your horse's stomach lining against acid secretions.Lithothamnion has a buffer effect, meaning that it reduces the acidity in your horse's stomach.Yea-Sacc (Saccharamoyces cerevisae) is a probiotic that balances the bacterial flora (or microbiota) to aid digestion in the gut.In addition to these 3 essential ingredients, the formula also contains Aloe vera, which has a soothing effect, clay to promote protection of the stomach, and marsh-mallow (Althaea officinalis).
EKYGARD is a feed supplement that can be used continuously all year round for your horse, thereby preventing too much stomach acidity. It can also be given occasionally. In this case, plan ahead for gastric acidity peaks related to specific events: transportation, competition, medication, etc. Give EKYGARD for 3 to 4 days before such events and for at least 1 week afterwards.
