Unlike many horse supplements, Nutrient Buffer® has demonstrated and documented its efficacy to earn a U.S. Patent. For over 40 years, we have been committed to using USP Grade minerals - ensuring maximum pharmaceutical purity. Equine health problems can be related to the toxic effects of heavy metals and varying mineral impurities - commonly found in cheaper feed grade products and poorer quality water supplies. Since some chemical forms of inorganic minerals are better or worse for consumption than others, you want to be able to choose your horse's intake of minerals. If it doesn't say 'USP Grade' on the label, then you should consider the longer-term risks of giving it to your horse.

Nutrient Buffer® is designed to protect the stomach from excess acid and safely move through the digestive tract along with food. Drugs enter the blood stream to influence deeper biochemical functions. Nutrient Buffer® will not test positive for any drug, and does not direct, control or obstruct natural biochemistry like H₂ blocker and proton pump inhibitor drugs. It is perfectly safe to use any time, even on race day.
Recommendations: Keep cool, away from sunlight, and shake well before use. 6 month expiration in warm sunny storage locations - 8 months to 1 year in cool dark storage conditions.
Consistency may vary depending on storage temperature, but it will not affect the performance of the active ingredients. Separation may occur near expiration, shake well to re-emulsify. May be dosed or used as a top dressing.
¼ cup (60㏄) = 1 Dose - (when dosing)
⅓ cup = 1 Dose - (when top dressing on feed)

Nutrient Buffer® H/G is a companion supplement designed to target hind gut ulcers and reduce intestinal permeability in horses with certain diagnosed neurological syndromes related to hind end weakness.
Together they make a safe, effective and optimal vitamin, mineral and probiotic buffering system for the entire equine digestive tract. Both supplements have been awarded U.S. Patents for their independent, reliable and natural functions in the body - so you can be confident that they have been thoroughly researched and evaluated. It also means that Nutrient Buffer® supplements cannot be copied in the market place.
