Equine Species-Specific Probiotics
Heritage and Ancestral Line Probiotics
Our R&D team has spent countless hours isolating and testing each of our "patent pending" equine species-specific probiotic strains to ensure they offer the highest contribution to animal health. All species-specific probiotic strains in our heritage and ancestral lines are proven to be:
Free of antibiotic resistance genes as well as virulence genes
Ability to survive through the GI tract.
Able to adhere to the intestinal cell lining.
Produce postbiotic metabolites that strengthen the animal’s gut epithelial barrier.
Exhibit immunological protection to the host through the regulation, stimulation, and modulation of immune responses.
HERITAGE LINE by CanBiocin
Our heritage line equine species-specific probiotic strains were isolated from freshly voided faeces of healthy donors, which are working ranch horses and high-performance racehorses, without symptoms of illness, without taking antibiotics or probiotics, for at least 30 days prior to faeces collection for lactic acid bacteria strain isolation.
Levilactobacillus brevis EK-1
Limosilactobacillus equigenerosi EK-3
Limosilactobacillus mucosae EK-4
Ligilactobacillus equi PCLS01
Limosilactobacillus fermentum EK-6
Lactiplantibacillus plantarum EK-7
Working Ranch Horses
ANCESTRAL LINE by CanBiocin
All equine probiotic strains were isolated from freshly voided faeces of free ranging wild horses.
Co-Fermented Species-Specific Blend
Based on science, we have developed a blend containing a co-fermented mix of equine species-specific probiotics from both of our heritage and ancestral lines: Equine Heritage Probiotic Blend.
This unique blend of equine species-specific probiotics has undergone extensive in vitro and in vivo assessment showing that the species-specific probiotics are able to survive in the presence of low pH and bile salts, adhere and colonize in the gut as well as provide a positive impact on overall animal health.
The equine heritage probiotic blend is available as a bulk supplement, or it can be customized with the addition of prebiotics. Prebiotic selection depends on which health-promoting benefits are required in the final blend.
Popular prebiotic options for equines:
Marshmallow Root - aids in digestive disorders by providing a barrier over an inflamed lining of the gut
FOS - improves insulin sensitivity in obese horses
Larch - improves gut health by supporting growth of good bacteria in the gut
Co-packaging options: bulk bag, incorporation into a feed matrix (ex. pellet feed).
Available Probiotic Formats:
FREEZE DRIED POWDER
