GNF is a unique supplement, for daily feeding to horses. GNF will assist in maintaining optimum gut health and function, allowing maximum utilisation of feed.

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are prebiotics that help to prime the existing, beneficial, gut bacteria (eg. Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus). They escape enzymatic digestion in the upper gastro-intestinal tract to provide a food source for indigenous beneficial flora.

Glutamine is an amino acid, one of its key functions is to nourish cells that line the stomach and intestines.

Threonine is an "essential" amino acid. Studies have shown that restriction of this nutrient may limit intestinal mucin synthesis and reduce gut barrier function.

Seaweed Extract is derived from Laminaria Hyperborea, a brown seaweed harvested in cold Atlantic waters. It is rich in amino acids and essential nutrients. In the presence of Calcium Carbonate it forms a gel which can act as a physical barrier, minimising the exposure of the nonglandular portion of the stomach to its acidic contents.

GNF contains both Calcium and Magnesium two components which are key nutrients in maintaining a healthy digestive system.

Gastric disturbances, are of concern to the trainers, breeders and owners of all performance horses. One such disturbance, Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) has become more prominent in recent years. Performance horses are at exceptional risk, with up to 93% of racehorses and 60% of other performance horses found to have ulcers on endoscopic examination. The reason for this high prevelance of gastric ulcers can be attributed to:
• Intermittent feeding
• High concentrate/ low forage diet
• Stall confinement
• Exercise induced stress

It is impractical to remove horses with EGUS from training and turn them out to grass. Proper nutritional support is a vital component in ensuring that valuable competition horses maintain a healthy digestive system in these trying conditions.
