Neutralize Stomach Acid That Can Lead to Ulcers
This unique ratio of minerals in a stabilized emulsion will help neutralize excess acidity that can lead to ulcers. Nutrient Buffer® does not inhibit acid production in the stomach. Stomach acid is necessary in order to ensure proper digestion and absorption of food.
Antacid & Alternative Colic Remedy
Nutrient Buffer® is so versatile that it can be used daily for horses in every walk of life. Better than drugs like H₂ Blockers and Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) which the body can build a tolerance to and require higher dosages over time, while Nutrient Buffer® works the same all the time, every time - with the added benefit of helping resolve colic situations when you need it the most.
Race horses tend to dump a lot of stomach acid at the break from the gate, Nutrient Buffer® has been one of the most widely used digestive aid buffering supplements for horses prior to stressful conditions. According to many prominent race track veterinarians, it helps horses race better.
STALLING, CONFINEMENT & TRAILERING
Whether your horse is injured or ill and in recovery, ulcers are known to become a problem in stalled and confined horses. Horses are grazers and designed for continuous movement to aid their digestion and well being.
Drugs have many shortcomings, and H₂ Blockers have some unique ones. When your horse builds a tolerence after prolonged daily use, you find yourself continually increasing the dosage to achieve the same results - and unflurtunately increase the likelihood of negetive side effects.
PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS
Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) shut down excess acid production in the stomach. Accurate dosing is exceptionally tough to estimate, and excessive use can lead to poor digestion of food and longer term health problems. In fact, even correct dosing is known to reduce magnesium absorption and create magnesium deficienies.
