Benefits

The Egusin concept includes 2 types of nutritional feed supplement for horses, ponies and foals to support digestion.  Both products support healthy intestinal balance and the maintenance of epithelial cells in the digestive tract by buffering the effects of excess gastric acid. This concept is based on a unique combination of active neutraceuticals which work with the bodies own defences to support the strength of the stomach lining.

EGUSIN SLH is used as the first nutritional feed supplement when supporting and maintaining the resilience of the horses digestive system.

EGUSIN 250 is used as the second “follow-up-diet” to maintain proper healthy stomach function.

WHAT MAKES EGUSIN® SLH and EGUSIN 250 UNIQUE?

In addition to the unique combination of selected antacids, dietary supplements and fibres, both EGUSIN® products contain micro-milled whole oats (groats).

The nutritional health benefits of oats have been accepted for centuries. Egusin contains a unique micro-milled whole oats meal-which allows the oats to retain a high proportion of valuable nutritional fibres to support healthy intestinal function.

The nutritional fibres in Egusin contain:
· Beta-glucan – gels in the stomach, supporting the natural coating of the stomach lining.
· Insoluble oats fibres – delays the stomach emptying which aids the maintenance of healthy gastric function particularly in horses prone to gastrointestinal disorders.
· Polar lipids – rich phospholipids that aid the maintenance of a healthy stomach lining.
· Natural antioxidants – to supporting muscle cells from degradation by free radicals.
