TAKE CONTROL

OF YOUR NEWBORN FOAL'S INTESTINAL HEALTH.

GlycoGuard’s unique formulation contains patented strains that work specifically with mare’s milk.

Improving a foal’s health may be as simple as combining new GlycoGuard® with the mare’s milk. GlycoGuard® is an oral activated microbial gel, containing the direct-fed microbials B. infantis and L. plantarum. GlycoGuard® can help give vulnerable nursing foals the intestinal support they need for a great start in life.

SUCCESS STORY

"The Lazy E Ranch foals out 300 mares a year, so we see a number of typical foal conditions. Diarrhea is one condition that can have numerous causes... GlycoGuard was the main component of our treatment protocol this year when a case of diarrhea needed treatment. By using GlycoGuard, we were able to quickly and effectively manage diarrhea in our foals and prevent anything from becoming more serious."

THE SCIENCE

For the first time, remodeling of the foal gut microbiome, through increased levels of bifidobacteria, has been demonstrated with probiotic supplementation. Upon administering GlycoGuard® immediately after birth, and twice daily for the first four days of life, the absolute levels of fecal Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis significantly increase. Fecal B. infantis levels remain elevated up to 14 days, during a very vulnerable time from birth to weaning.

INGREDIENTS FOR A HEALTHY GUT IN A NURSING FOAL

Microorganisms, such as B. infantis, are adapted to efficiently consume the complex carbohydrates found in mare’s milk, and in turn produce important short-chain fatty acids necessary for gut health. Intestinal colonization by other types of bacteria result in inefficient and incomplete utilization of these carbohydrates. This intestinal dysbiosis results in the inability of foals to receive the maximum benefit from the mare’s milk.
