HIND GUT PLUS provides Calcium Carbonate and Magnesium Carbonate in proper proportion for anti-ulcer benefits.
Acidosis (abnormally high acidity) in the Hindgut (the large intestine and colon) can cause a number of problems in horses.
Horses suffering from Hindgut acidosis may develop anorexia, tying-up, colic, wood chewing, and stall weaving all of which can contribute to weight loss and an unhealthy appearance.
Prolonged acidosis may cause the intestines to lose their ability to absorb nutrients. Severe Hindgut acidosis can cause laminitis.
Horses consuming grain as part of their daily feed have an increased risk of developing Hindgut acidosis due to starch or fructan overload.
Raw Sodium bicarbonate never makes it to the Hindgut, it just buffers the stomach Sodium bicarbonate breaks down quickly in the stomach, and the carbon dioxide produced is rapidly absorbed into the blood as a buffer, raising the horse’s total carbon dioxide level which is undesirable.
HIND GUT PLUS is designed to deliver Sodium bicarbonate directly to the Hindgut through encapsulation of Sodium Bicarbonate in specially processed vegetable oil to help reduce Hindgut acidosis.
