GlycoGuard is an activated form of B. infantis and L. plantarum, beneficial bacteria that work in combination with mare's milk to stabilize the newborn foal gut. It is the only probiotic clinically proven to effectively colonize and stabilize the foal's large intestine.
GlycoGuard is a direct-fed microbial probiotic that is especially effective in promoting gut health in nursing foals. The formula is comprised of an activated preparation of Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis and Lactobacillus plantarum.
B. infantis and L. plantarum work together in a three-part action:
- Consume complex carbohydrates found in equine milk
- Produce short chain fatty acids which help provide extra energy for the foal
- Support a healthy gut epithelium, the layer of cells that form the surface lining of the small and large intestine in the gastrointestinal tract
One serving is 10cc (100.5g). Turn dial to appropriate marking. Insert into foal's mouth and depress plunger until it stops. Feed 10cc orally at birth and every 12 hours for 4 consecutive days for a total of 8 feedings.
