The good digestive health of our horses is vital to prevent illness, disease and to ensure food is utilised efficiently.
By providing a forage-based diet which is balanced with vitamins and minerals you can meet your horse’s required dietary fibre intake and basic nutritional needs. Additional feedstuffs may be added to the diet to meet energy demands for horses that require extra nutritional support e.g. for performance or condition.
To further support good digestive health, many horse owners are using the natural turmeric supplement TurmerAid™ from The Golden Paste Company.
This complete turmeric pellet is carefully formulated to optimise the bio-availability of key functional ingredients which include turmeric (5.1% curcumin), linseed oil, black pepper, apple cider vinegar and yucca.
The yucca is added to aid digestion and have positive effects on the microflora that occur naturally in the horse’s gut. Black pepper and apple cider vinegar both act to increase systemic longevity of turmeric, whilst yucca improves the absorbability of the active ingredients. Both the turmeric and beet pectin in TurmerAid™ help improve hindgut fermentation and absorption which is beneficial to digestive health.
In addition to aiding digestion, TurmerAid™ also supports the body’s natural inflammation processes and the linseed oil promotes a healthy skin and coat.
TurmerAid™ remains effective as the ingredients are evenly distributed in each pellet and are only released when the horse bites into them. There is no risk of individual ingredients dissipating inside the tub over time and the horse subsequently receiving an unbalanced measure.
