The Road to Health is Paved with Good Intestines™ With Omega Alpha’s Biotic 8™ Plus
Thursday, July 29, 2021
Good digestion, optimal gut health, and a vibrant immune system are keys to a happy, healthy horse. Your horse’s gastrointestinal tract is designed for continuous grazing and to efficiently extract soluble nutrients in forage by enzymatic digestion in the small intestine. And while we all know our horses should have probiotics for gut health, it’s a fact that all probiotics are not created equally. Omega Alpha’s Biotic 8™ Plus is a broad-spectrum prebiotic and probiotic digestive tract formula that promotes digestion and proper bacterial flora in the large intestine.
“I have been using Omega Alpha for many years and one of my favorite products hands down is Biotic 8. I find that this pre and probiotic really supports my all my horses digestive system. I recommend this product to all my clients and to anyone that has horses with gut issues or just wants to make sure that their animals have the proper nutrition for a healthy digestive tract. I fully stand by Omega Alpha” ~ Endel Ots
Biotic 8™ Plus also has valuable ingredients such as kelp that provides iodine and other trace minerals that improve metabolic function, help maintain a healthy weight, and support a normal bowel function. Biotic 8™ Plus also contains the superfood, spirulina. This amazing blue-green algae is a complete vitamin- and mineral-rich protein source. It boosts energy, supports detoxification metabolism, as well as improving cellular and joint health. It is rich in essential and non-essential amino acids.
Omega Alpha’s Biotic 8™ Plus probiotic delivery system protects from excess stomach acid and contains enzymes to help digest proteins, carbohydrates, and cellulose while increasing the absorption of phytonutrients. In addition, its unique formula provides essential B vitamins, trace minerals and antioxidants in the form of bioflavonoids. In addition, the ingredients in Biotic 8™ Plus are in a suspended state and are activated by the moisture in the horse’s digestive tract. Our ingredients aren’t just on the label, they are actually in a form that will be activated and absorbed effectively inside your horse!
What you will not find in Biotic 8™ Plus are fillers, those inactive ingredients found in too many probiotic products. All of the plant-based, non-animal product ingredients in Biotic 8™ Plus are herbs that promote a healthy gut. The addition of these ingredients in Omega Alpha’s Biotic 8™ Plus assists your horse in these ways:
- Marshmallow root helps eliminate mucus and soothes stomach irritation while preventing the growth of some microbes and regenerating cells.
- Cellulase, a digestive enzyme, increases the number of phytonutrients absorbed from forage while improving trace element content for metabolic functioning.
- Slippery elm bark protects irritated or inflamed mucous membranes with its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and nutritive properties.
- Inulin stimulates the growth of healthy bacteria and aids in digestive motility.
- Amylase is a digestive enzyme and digestive aid.
- Citrus bioflavonoids are a source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.
Why Biotic 8 Plus for your horse? What makes Biotic 8 Plus different from other probiotics?
There are multiple factors that make Biotic 8 Plus a standout being that it is the most broad-spectrum prebiotic & probiotic formula containing 16.5 billion CFUs (colony forming units) per 15ml scoop from 9 different species of beneficial bacteria and yeast but this product is far more than just that. There is a protective carrier system our scientists developed to ensure the viability of the probiotics in Biotic 8 Plus. This ensures they reach their destination through the stomach acid to then populate the microbiome (large intestine and hindgut) with the necessary beneficial bacterial flora. Without this system in place the bacteria will die before reaching the microbiome leaving the body to eliminate the waste which is also a waste of your money as well.
Supporting the immune system at its source with Biotic 8 Plus helps to prevent the growth of bad bacteria that can cause chronic health issues. Biotic 8 Plus is a must-have anytime antibiotics are used to rebalance the microbiome, post-illness.As stated above, Biotic 8 Plus also contains digestive enzymes and micronutrients like spirulina, kelp, fenugreek, marshmallow root, flax, slippery elm, citrus bioflavonoids & inulin to complete the formula. This is why so many professionals turn to Biotic 8 Plus when results and quality matter for their equine health & performance needs.
