BUILDAGUT CONTAINS UNIQUE MEDICINAL HERBS:
- Chamomile flowers are an ideal herb to use with upset digestion as well as calming, soothing and assisting the healing of inflamed and irritated digestive tissue. This will be ideal for horses recovering from gastric ulceration.
- Fennel fruit seeds have significant activity to assist in the breakdown of proteins. Fennel acts as a carminative, relaxing the digestive tract. It also aids digestion and digestive secretions to enhance nutritional feed uptake.
- Blackcurrant polyphenols have a prebiotic effect. New Zealand blackcurrants contain high amounts of polyphenols – predominately polymeric anthocyanins or proanthocyanins. Polyphenols have been found to increase the abundance of specific bowel flora such as Akkermansia muciniphila and therefore have a significant prebiotic effect.
- Fibrulose or Chicory root extract is a natural sweetener without the sugar! It provides fructo-oligosaccharides and dietary fibre. Fibrolose is included in this formulation to add soluble fibre – its content is 93% fibre – to support healthy bowel flora. Dietary fibre acts as a prebiotic, feeding healthy bacteria essential to gastrointestinal health.
