For horse owners that seek nutritional support for their horse’s gut discomfort, Nutrena has added Empower Digestive Balance supplement to its lineup. Intestinal and gastric discomfort in horses is often due to stressful situations such as rigorous training, competing, shipping, frequent changes in environment and even drastic changes in weather. While the structure of a horse is quite large, their gastrointestinal system is rather small, sensitive and susceptible to upset.
“Horses can suffer from digestive upset which can be demonstrated through irritable behavior, poor appetite and sometimes loose manure,” said Russell Mueller, Equine Product Line Manager with Cargill Animal Nutrition. “These challenges can be even greater in performance horses which are exposed to more stress from traveling, performing and constantly changing environments. Empower Digestive Balance is a pelleted top dress that brings multiple nutritional technologies into one product to support the overall health of the entire digestive tract.”
Empower Digestive Balance contains marine calcite, encapsulated butyric acid, zinc and proprietary yeast culture. This innovative product provides a comprehensive approach to gastric health by buffering the stomach, maintains or supports tissue integrity for better nutrient absorption and helps balance the normal microbial environment.
This new offering from Nutrena joins the Empower product family which includes Empower Boost and Empower Topline Balance. All Empower products are scientifically designed for low feeding rates.
Empower Digestive Balance is intended to be fed with any fully fortified and balanced existing diet. It is offered in 40lb. bags across the United States and is available at more than 4,000 Nutrena retailers.
