 Probiotic EQ™ contains concentrated levels of four (4) key ingredients to provide the support for healthy gut/digestive integrity and immune support. 

 

  • Active Dry Yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae) -- A yeast shown to help decrease pathogens and help control diarrhea and a source of Beta-Glucans 

 

  • Direct-Fed Microbials —Live, naturally-occurring microorganisms that improve gut integrity, digestion, growth and production to reduce intestinal problems.

 

  • Beta-glucans — Are found in cell walls of bacteria and yeast help support immune system by stimulating production of white blood cells and other immune cells to attack pathogens as well as stimulating cells that destroy invading pathogens.  Feeds good bacteria and provides a “protective” layer in the intestinal walls.

 

  • D-Mannose (MOS) — Helps stimulate the growth of good bacteria and thought to be a pre-biotic.  It has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.  Supports easier digestion of fibrous feeds.

#INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

Beta Glucan is a powerful stimulant to the immune system. By normalizing the rate at which food moves through the GI tract, Beta glucan also helps to moderate the release of sugar into the bloodstream and reduces the digestive upset that can occur when too much sugar reaches the hindgut too quickly.

D-Mannose (MOS) is part of the yeast cell wall and helps clear the horse’s hindgut of pathogens and aids in immune system health. MOS binds to harmful pathogens like E.coli and salmonella, preventing these from binding to the horse’s intestine and causing infection. When the MOS is flushed from the horse’s body in manure, it takes the infective agents with it. MOS also stimulates the horse’s immune system by evoking an antibody response against the invading pathogen, building the horse’s natural defenses. Mannose is a prebiotic, complex sugar that aids in tissue remodeling and feeds lactobacillus (good) bacteria that provide a protective shield for the mucosal membranes of the gut.

Active Dry Yeast: A yeast shown to help decrease pathogens and help control diarrhea and is a source of beta glucans. Supports enzyme activity for fiber digestion/colon function associated with colic, colon pH and helps support growth of beneficial lactic acid bacteria.

Probiotics are live microorganisms fed to promote healthy digestive and immune function. When these "good" bugs break down food ingredients that the body normally can't, they produce energy and vitamins for the body, food for cells in the cecum and colon, and byproducts that keep the "bad" bugs from growing. Research suggests probiotics are useful in repopulating the intestine with "good" bugs after antibiotic use and may benefit certain horses with diarrhea. A common term used for probiotics is direct-fed microbials (DFM).

#FAQS

Can healthy horses benefit from digestive support?

MVP:  Healthy horses can benefit from digestive support especially those undergoing feed changes, horses on antibiotics, and particularly those under stressful training, heavy competitive schedules and trailering long distances.

Like this product even more

I've fed MVP Probiotic V for several years and was disappointed to find it no longer available, However, I like this product even more. The pelleted form is easy to used and my horses eat it readily.
