Gastro U Formula is a natural approach to supporting the proper, efficient process of horse digestion, providing GASTRIC & HINDGUT comfort.

Gastro U Formula is a product based on the highly bioavailable Yarrowia lipolytica yeast strain and essential unsaturated fatty acid ethyl esters. The formula is rich in bioactive substances, exogenous amino acids, fatty acid esters with valuable Omega-3/-6 bonds, and contains phytobiotics.

Directions:- Daily serving is 8g per 100 kg of bodyweight daily. 3kg of Gastro U will last a 550kg horse approx 2 months, fed at 45g per day. 550kg horse - 3 x 15g yellow scoops per day.

One or two tubs of Gastro U Formula should be fed to the horse, before maintaining long term gastric & hindgut comfort on Gastro U at the full or reduced amount OR Equinox Original or SPORT. Equinox Gastro U, may also be used at times of increased risk, such as just before, during & after long journeys, stay away shows, worming etc.

Gastro U can also be fed at half the recommended amount, with Equinox Original or SPORT.

Yarrowia Lipolytica yeast - upon which all our supplements are based - contain oligosaccharides (mannanes, beta-glucans) which are NOT susceptible to animal digestive enzymes, so are able to survive the passage to equine intestines. The yeast becomes a medium for normal/beneficial bacterial flora, leading to restricted growth of negative bacteria present in intestinal flora. Favourable bacteria, including lactic bacteria proliferate rapidly and negative organisms decrease.

Yarrowia lipolytica yeast cellular walls have a stable and extensive structure, and contain mycotoxin-binding properties.

Yarrowia lipolytica yeast strain, uses fat as a source of carbon and energy, hence guaranteeing a higher content of valuable, bio-available nutrients. The special process of yeast biomass multiplication on the fatty substrate, under biotechnological regime, guarantees the highest product quality. This is an innovation in the market of horse supplementation and Equinox supplements are the ONLY supplements in the UK to contain this unique yeast strain produced by patented technology.

Yarrowia lipolytica yeast - grown on fats, are a perfect source of protein with optimum amino acid composition, B group vitamins, vital micro- and macro-elements, in easily absorbable- organic form and contain active substances, including selenomethionine, selenocysteine, alfa-ketoglutaran, cytrulline malate, kynurenic acid.

Yarrowia lipolytica yeast is extremely efficient at delivering nutrients into the horses body, therefore the horse benefits not only from the nutrients contained in ours supplements, but also is better able to utilise nutrients in hay, grass and other bucket feed.

Our UNIQUE YARROWIA YEAST - must NOT be confused with Brewer's yeast - which is made from a one-celled fungus called Saccharomyces cerevisiae and is a by-product of brewing beer.

The Manufacturer declares that the product does not contain doping substances, Class A drugs or Class B drugs mentioned in the list of prohibited substances issued by FEI. The prepared product may be used throughout pre-competition period and during and after competitions. Suitable for horses competing under Rules.
