A probiotic is a solution that contains beneficial gut bacteria, most often commercially produced in liquid or powdered form. The IEC has been involved in gut flora research for the past 20 years and, through our extensive research, we have identified the beneficial bacteria which can be harvested from freshly cultured faeces to produce an autogenous liquid probiotic which contains beneficial bacteria harvested from your horse’s own faecal sample. Unlike commercial products, the beneficial bacteria in this autogenous probiotic are unique to your horse and can help to restore the balance of gut flora following any adverse events. This solution contains ONLY your horse’s own beneficial bacteria suspended in sterile water and NO other additives. Using ProSol over a period of 20 days we have seen improvements in the health and condition of horses where a gut imbalance
had previously been diagnosed.
Using cryopreservation, the IEC can store each horse’s beneficial bacteria in a secure bank for the duration of the horse’s life, providing a safety net for the owner. In the case of an adverse event in the gut, e.g. antibiotic treatment or parasitic infection, the IEC is able to retrieve the stored bacteria and quickly formulate a ProSol probiotic for your horse.
