FERMAID EASE is a natural feed ingredient to help maintain the stomach wall integrity and support intensively managed horses at risk for stomach acidification. FERMAID EASE 187 is the product of the fermentation of soya flour by the specific lactic acid bacteria Lactobacillus delbruecki lactis Rosell-187.
What it delivers
FERMAID EASE inhibits gastric acid production and reduces irritation of the mucosa. It stimulates cellular regeneration of the gastric epithelium by interacting with the immune system (increases the anti-inflammatory interleukins IL-6 and inhibits the formation of inflammatory cytokines IL-8 and TNF-α). It is also likely to have direct buffering effects and may effect blood flow and bicarbonate secretion.
Why it matters
Horses with limited access to pasture or ad libitum forage pasture can have the stomach partially empty for periods of the day. In horses, the production of gastric acid and proteolytic enzymes is continuous, an empty stomach increases the contact between the gastric juices and the stomach lining, leading to its erosion and facilitating the occurrence of gastric ulcers.
FERMAID EASE can be used following traditional veterinary therapy to maintain gastric health.
FERMAID EASE can also be fed to foals during periods where they are at risk, as they are very sensitive to gastric ulcers.
Formulated for success
FERMAID EASE should be mixed with complete or complementary feeds.
FERMAID EASE is packaged in 20-kg bags.
