Protexin have added a 5th product to their Equine Premium range. Gut Bind is a 2 course of probiotics, prebiotics, kaolin and pectin. It comes in a 30ml syringe and is designed to settle a foal’s disrupted gut. It can be used on foals from birth and is also suitable for horses of any age.

With a peppermint flavour the main ingredients provide the following support; Protexin probiotics help re-establish the normal hindgut microflora, Preplex prebiotics nourish the beneficial bacteria, kaolin is a natural binding agent to firm up faeces, and pectin helps to soothe the gut lining.

The 4 other products in the Equine Premium range are Gut Balancer, Acid Ease, Quick Fix and Recover Aid.

International event rider Piggy French has tested the product on her yard.

“We tried the Protexin Gut Balancer on 10 of the horses and compared the results to the rest of the yard,” said Piggy.

“I can honestly say those 10 have really benefitted from Gut Balancer by comparison in both holding their condition and they are more settled during a stressful competition schedule; so much so we’ve put the rest on it! Thank you for a great British product.”
