Intestinal flora, fluid balance

The intestinal flora is a living community that affects the horse's digestion, immune, hormonal and nervous systems. Its balance is the guarantee of lasting health. Protection of the gut flora can be achieved by long-term feeding of herbs that improve digestion. Probiotics are for supplementing intestinal flora. In the case of specific diseases, intestinal flora support additionally accelerates the reduction of existing symptoms.
