Sporthorse Apothecary's Gut Tonic is different in so many ways from other products in the mainstream digestive health category that its a bit like comparing apples to oranges!
There are three primary areas where Gut Tonic is unique among equine digestive aids.
First, Gut Tonic has ingredients to address the entire balance of the GI tract, not just acid production. Focusing on only on symptom mitigation is the downfall of the pharmaceutical approach to managing GI disturbances, and unfortunately for many horses, it's the approach taken by mainstream supplement manufacturers as well. Gut Tonic is formulated to relieve GI discomfort from a holistic approach by filling in the nutritional gaps faced by modern sporthorses.
Second, the specialized formula contains not only active herbals, but a synergistic blend of activator herbs developed by Sporthorse Apothecary which work on a chemical level to release and boost the power of the primary blend. The potency of the Gut Tonic formula is truly greater than the sum of its herbs!
Third, when given as instructed 20-30 minutes prior to exercise or feeding, the highly viscous hydrophilic botanicals in Gut Tonic provide active protection to the stomach during times when it is most at risk, a protection unique to Sporthorse Apothecary Gut Tonic!
