What makes dac Probiotic Paste different?
Probiotics – Living microorganisms which when ingested have beneficial effects on the equilibrium and the physiological functions of the intestinal microflora. These natural additives help maintain the correct balance of microflora in the hindgut of the horse to support healthy digestive function.
Lactic Acid Producing Bacteria – Live lactic acid-producing bacteria may potentially improve health and performance. The observed benefits may result from: 1) competition against disease causing bacteria for attachment sites in the digestive tract, 2) competition against disease causing bacteria for essential nutrients, 3) production of antimicrobial substances, 4) increasing the growth of beneficial bacteria and 5) stimulating the immune system.
Microencapsulation – Providing probiotic living cells with a physical barrier against adverse external conditions is important to ensure optimal usage by the host. Encapsulation tends to stabilize cells, potentially enhancing their viability and stability in the production, storage and handling of lactic cultures. Encapsulation occurs naturally when bacterial cells grow and produce exo-polysaccharides. The microbial cells are entrapped within their own secretions that act as a protective structure or a capsule, reducing the permeability of material through the capsule and therefore less exposed to adverse environmental factors. Many lactic acid bacteria synthesize exo-polysaccharides, but they produce insufficient exopolysaccharides to be able to encapsulate themselves fully.
