Mucilage: Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) and Seaweed Meal (Ascophyllum nodosum) are included in Horslyx Pro Digest Balancer as both contain mucilage. Mucilage, also known as soluble fibre, can be particularly beneficial in horse with inflamed mucous membranes and digestive conditions. Mucilage absorbs moisture within the stomach and can form a protective layer reducing the effect of excess acid on the stomach which may be helpful in terms of gastric ulcers.
MOS: Horslyx Pro Digest Balancer contains a prebiotic yeast extract containing MOS (Mannanoligosaccharides), which helps to flush pathogens out of the gut and Beta-glucans which helps stimulate the growth of beneficial gut bacteria resulting in a healthier balance of bacteria and so can lessen digestive upsets.
Actisaf: A live probiotic yeast, is included in Horslyx Pro Digest Balancer to help support digestive health and maintain healthy gut function and help reduce the risk of digestive discomfort. Probiotics pass through the stomach and small intestine and are then functional within the hindgut. They cannot colonise the hindgut and so need fed daily for sustained results.
Antioxidants: A combination of powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E, Selenium, chelated Copper and Zinc are included to support and maintain a healthy immune system, which maximises the ability to support and aid healthy joint function.
Apple Flavouring Horslyx Pro Digest Balancer Apple Flavouring: A spiced apple flavouring is included in Pro Digest Balancer to tempt fussy feeders.
Horslyx Balancers Horslyx Balancers were first manufactured in 1997 at our plant, based at Silloth in Cumbria. The debut product in the equestrian range was Original Horslyx and after initial success Respiratory, Garlic and Mobility Horslyx were introduced. In 2005 a bespoke extension was added enabling Mini Horslyx to be manufactured and today you can purchase Horslyx in packs ranging from 650g up to 80kg. Recently Mint and Pro Digest formulations have been added to the range in size 650g, 5kg and 15kg.
Horslyx Balancers have been carefully formulated to balance the deficiencies in forage and grazing. This is a unique and innovative approach to ensuring that the modern horse receives an ideal supply of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to support optimum health and vitality.
A Balancer in a Lick?
Balancers are available in varying formats, from the lick of a Horslyx to the more common pelleted versions. They all have in common the fact that they are concentrated feeds; rich in vitamins, minerals and high quality protein containing essential amino acids, low in energy and are designed to balance the diet. This means that balancers can be fed in small amounts giving a horse all of their daily vitamins and mineral requirements without the extra calories. This method of feeding has much more in common with how horses evolved to eat, providing a trickle feed supply of nutrients, so helping to keep your horse healthier and happier.
Horslyx Balancers have been created to provide the goodness required for horses to remain in peak health.
The horse evolved to eat little and often over the day, with the main part of the diet being forage. However, today’s forage is a far cry from that which our equine’s ancestors would have roamed on and grazed in history. While times may have changed, our horse’s digestive system hasn’t, and we need to take this into consideration when planning a feeding regime, ideally keeping the principles of a diet based mainly on forage with a trickle feed supply of nutrients provided to balance the diet to keep our equines healthy. For this reason, Horslyx Balancers have been created to provide the goodness required for horses to remain in peak health.
