Probiotic/Prebiotic Digestive Support

Symbiotic supports optimum digestive function and immune health by helping maintain a healthy bacterial population throughout the gastrointestinal tract. This proprietary blend of probiotics and prebiotics is beneficial for horses who have difficulty maintaining weight, are susceptible to hindgut issues or loose manure, and those at risk for gastric upset due to stress, traveling, training, or changes in their diet or environment.  


As hindgut fermenters, horses utilize beneficial bacteria and other microorganisms to help digest fiber. The fermentation of fiber in the hindgut produces volatile fatty acids utilized for energy and synthesis of B vitamins. 


Most live probiotics die during processing and packaging, long before reaching your horse. Symbiotic, however, contains Saccharomyces Boulardii, a live microorganism that does not require refrigeration and can withstand GI stresses to colonize the hindgut. Together with TruEquine Diamond V® Yeast, this combination of live probiotics and prebiotics helps beneficial bacteria flourish, and supports a tight intestinal lining that filters out toxins that could be absorbed into the blood stream via “leaky gut.”


Saccharomyces Boulardii withstands stress of gastric transit to target hindgut

Supports a healthy environment for stomach and intestinal mucosa


Reestablishes gut function after medications have disrupted balance of beneficial microbes 

TruEquine Diamond V® Yeast (Saccharomyces Cervesea) supports digestion and normalization of gut microflora


Beta glucans moderate release of sugars into bloodstream 

Repairs damage to intestinal lining caused by NSAIDS to restore “leaky gut” to normal permeability levels

What makes Symbiotic different from other probiotics?

Most probiotics are white powders where the bacteria died during processing and packaging, or otherwise die upon reaching the acidic environment of the stomach. Symbiotic uses a strain of bacteria that does not require refrigeration, survives packaging, and that is proven to withstand the stresses of GI transit to successfully colonize the hindgut. Symbiotic contains other yeasts and forage based prebiotics that horses love the smell and taste of.

 

Why do people supplement with prebiotics and probiotics?

Often times, the delicate balance of beneficial bacteria in the GI tract is disrupted (i.e. due to medications, stress, illness, changes in feed or environment) and this can lead to various gastric issues. Maintaining a healthy population of beneficial bacteria while keeping the bad bacteria at bay is essential for proper nutrient absorption and immune health.

 

What are prebiotics and probiotics?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria in your horse's GI tract that assist with digestion.  Prebiotics are the food source for the beneficial bacteria.  

 

Can I use Symbiotic with Ulceraser?

Yes!  In fact they are designed to complement one another by focusing on the gastric and colonic needs of your horse.

 

What type of horses benefit from Symbiotic?

All of them! To name just a few: senior horses needing improved nutrient digestibility and absorption to help maintain weight; foals and young growing horses that need to establish beneficial bacteria throughout the GI tract; performance horses susceptible to hindgut disturbance caused by sugar and starch content of large grain meals needed to meet their energy requirements; horses with loose stool or fecal water and; horses needing to strengthen the intestinal lining to restore “leaky gut” to normal permeability levels.

 

Will Symbiotic help a horse with diarrhea?

There are many different causes of diarrhea (illness, infection, parasites, ulcers, sudden change in diet, etc).  Symbiotic helps address chronic diarrhea by colonizing the hindgut with beneficial bacteria to restore the proper balance of microflora. Symbiotic also increases nutrient absorption, keeps pathogens and bad bacteria at bay, eliminates mycotoxins, and reduces leaky gut and fecal water. Another often overlooked cause of diarrhea is inefficient or incomplete digestion in the stomach prior to food (usually processed feeds higher in sugar and starch) making its way to the colon. This is why it’s also important to focus on gastric health. Ulceraser encourages digestion in the foregut where it belongs rather than in the hindgut, which results in to the release of volatile fatty acids and plummeting pH ultimately leading to the death of beneficial bacteria. Ulceraser is also hydrophilic, which means that it attracts and absorbs excess water (reducing diarrhea) as well.

Testimonials
We struggled to get this horse's feet to grow any sole despite trying several different avenues.
After less than six months on Crackdown the horse's sole depth doubled and hoof quality was substantially improved. This was significantly more growth than the horse experienced during the prior year. Crackdown is a staple product that I recommend to clients for overall hoof health as well as in specific cases where a horse has difficulty growing sole and hoof wall.

All of our horses use Electrofresh.
When it's hot and humid, and our horses are competing week after week, they are sweating and losing the electrolytes they need. Just as I am focused on hydrating and replenishing myself, it is important to maintain the horses' systems and make sure we are replenishing what they need so they can perform at the highest levels.

The horses receiving Ulceraser are in a very good state of mind. Their conditioning, coats, and their overall look and performance is certainly at its peak.
We’re very happy with the condition of the horses who use Ulceraser, as well as the fact that the product is FEI- and USEF-safe. Using Ulceraser with our top horses, we see that they are in a very good state of mind. Their condition, their coats, and their overall look certainly is at its peak. We feel that Ulceraser has been a great help to their general conditioning.
Mclain Ward

We’ve tried so many other things before that just sat in the bottom of the feed tub, but they never leave any Ulceraser behind. They will really eat it out of your hand.
We have about 35 horses and ponies on Ulceraser. We definitely see a difference and it helps keep them all relaxed. We like that there’s nothing chemical in it and you don’t have to worry about pronouncing any of the ingredients. We’ve tried so many other things before that just sat in the bottom of the feed tub, but they never leave any Ulceraser behind. They will really eat it out of your hand.
