NUTRI-GARD is a dietetic feedstuff for use in the management of stress related problems in horses. Gastric ulcers are very often the result of those problems.

NUTRI-GARD provides ingredients recommended when negative stress factors create an imbalance between mucus and acid secretions in the stomach. When wetted, NUTRI-GARD absorbs a significant volume of water to form an enriched fibrous gel which maintains regular mucosal protection in a very natural feed form and limits the acid attack.

 NUTRI-GARD provides a concentrated source of easily digested soluble fibre so it's completely available to the horse. The Prebiotic Inulin/Oligofructose contained in NUTRI-GARD is a specially selected feed that is beneficial for the growth and colonisation of 'good bacteria' .

 It is known that average rested horses if fed well should be able to produce enough of their own Vitamin B requirements, however, race and performance horses may not be able to make sufficient quantities to support their immediate needs, partly because they can only absorb about 25% of what they produce and secondly their requirement increases. Lecithin is a natural lipid of a type normally found in cells (especially those of the nervous system). It can exhibit surfactant qualities that reduce surface tension on the surface of gastric juices within the stomach.

When complexed with the NUTRI-GARD fibre, the lecithin forms a gel on contact with the solution of the water and bicarbonate rich saliva from the mouth secretions thereby forming a  layer which acts as a barrier to protect against the acid splashing.
