Psyllium – assists removal of sand and soil particles in the gut.
Sand Shifter contains pysllium husk powder, a revolutionary bulk forming natural fibre derived from pysllium seed.
Once in the horse’s digestive tract, pysllium forms a fibrous gel which adheres to the sand particles preventing them from staying in the gut and causing potential blockages. Its bulk forming capacity encourages movement by peristalsis, aiding the removal of blockages from the horse’s digestive tract.
Aniseed flavouring normally irresistible to horses has been added to increase palatability.
- Contains kaolin to aid the whole digestive process
- Specially formulated for horses or ponies grazing sandy loams or short grass
- Highly palatable, assists in easing the movement of sand particles through the gut
- Unique aniseed flavouring irresistible to horses
