C.A.R.E. - Clean, Activate, Restore, Enhance
"All dis-ease begins with the gut," said Hippocrates. And all these centuries later, there's still no doubt about it. The gut is the Mother of all the Organs - everything starts with the gut.
A healthy gut is the ultimate gatekeeper of good health - when the gut environment is out of balance, a malfunctioning system is the result - it becomes no longer able to digest, assimilate and absorb the essential nutrients we pay good money to feed to our horses to keep them healthy. And so begins a cascade of chronic dis-ease. It's as simple as that.
So, if you're looking to clear up the chronic symptoms that are chipping away at your horse's quality of life, there's only way to do it. Clean up the gut. And here's where our C.A.R.E. programme comes in.
Around 60-80% of the whole body’s immunity is created in the intestinal tract by the beneficial bacteria. With this microbiota being the major regulator of the immune system, a horse’s overall health relies completely upon optimal performance of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Cultivating beneficial gut bacteria is the first line of defense against many serious diseases. To sustain a healthy digestive system, a healthy environment for the growth, and balance, of beneficial microbiota (gut flora) is absolutely essential, so incorporating a probiotic into your horse's daily feed will mean your horse will be able to utilise the full benefit of the nutrients you're feeding.
The gut microbiome is an incredible network of mega-trillions of organisms that live in and on the body. They’re made up of beneficial bacteria as well as fungi, viruses, plus bacteria that aren't so beneficial. The gut needs this microcosm to survive. The relationship between them and the gut system which carries them is symbiotic in nature.
Unfortunately, there are many bad guys out there which can really mess with the gut ecology, disrupting this relationship in a similar way that chemotherapy affects the human body. Chemotherapy wipes out perfectly healthy non-cancerous cells inside us humans along with the cancerous cells, annihilating our immune system. Similarly, antibiotics wipe out all the gut bacteria, the bad kind as well as the good kind we can’t live without.
