When a horse develops colic, it is often the result of foreign materials built up within their digestive tract. Their intestinal tract is simply not designed to carry everything they manage to eat. So, how do we help our horses keep their guts clean and operating correctly?
The solution is not a new development, but rather a time-tested remedy. Psyllium for colic prevention is a reliable and natural solution.
Psyllium (Plantain Ovarta) is an annual herb native to Asia, the Mediterranean, and North Africa. It is commercially grown in India and Pakistan. The husk of the psyllium seed contains about 70% fiber, making it one of the highest naturally occurring sources of soluble fiber available. Psyllium husk is a bulk-forming fiber. This means it acts like a gelatinous and hygroscopic sponge. It surrounds and removes unwanted foreign material, sand, toxins, and indigestible roughage which settle in the folds, bends, and turns of the digestive tract.
This gel-like property makes ColiClenz Plus Pellets a natural choice for horse owners and veterinarians for preventing horse colic.
Using psyllium for colic prevention, ColiClenz™ Plus is a simple and effective way of cleansing the horse’s digestive system and avoiding horse colic. Mixed into a horse’s normal dry feed bin with his usual ration, it provides a mix of digestive material with the hygroscopic and gelatinous properties of the psyllium husk.
After consuming ColiClenz, the pellets pass through the 72 feet of the horse’s digestive tract. Within minutes of ingestion, absorbed fluid in the gut activates the psyllium husk’s gelatinous and hygroscopic properties. Within twelve hours, the raw psyllium husk accumulates waste material (sand, sticks, debris, and toxins contained in the solid and fluid waste), which then passes as fecal matter eliminating their contribution to future equine colic.
In simple terms, ColiClenz Pellets turn into a jelly-like mass which travels through the horse’s digestive tract. It works its way into the nooks and crannies, encasing the unwanted material, which then exits the horse as fecal matter.
