Unique and multidisciplinary approach to optimize digestion and improve gut health
Cavalor Digest improves digestion and restores gut flora, protecting against diarrhea and also decreasing the risk of colic. Furthermore, it binds, traps and inactivates mycotoxins.
Cavalor Digest provides a unique and multidisciplinary approach to optimize digestion and to improve gut health and gut flora by providing a variety of nutrients and nutraceuticals (living yeast culture, herbs, activated carbon, etc.). Cavalor Digest can also be used in the dietary management of horses associated with gastrointestinal disturbances. Cavalor Digest also contains ingredients to reduce the risk of the harmful effects of mycotoxins.
What are the effects of mycotoxins and general symptoms of mycotoxicosis?
Mycotoxins originate from molds. They grow on living and stored plants. The growth of mycotoxins is practically unavoidable, especially in moist conditions. Because of the large volume of feedstuffs that must be stored and distributed in stables, considerable opportunity exists for molds to grow, especially when dry and cool storage of harvested feed is not possible (particularly in countries with a warm and humid climate). When mycotoxins are ingested, either in large single doses or in small quantities over a long period of time, it can have adverse effects on the performance capacity, the reproductive efficiency and the health of horses. There are several general symptoms that may indicate that a mycotoxin problem exists:
- Reduced consumption of feed
- A high incidence of digestive upsets/ liver problems (equine leukoencephalomalacia)
- A high incidence of diseases associated with depressed immune function
- A high rate of fertility problems without obvious infectious disease involvement
- Animals that do not respond well to treatment
There are many types of molds that produce a variety of mycotoxins, causing various diseases. Only a few mycotoxins have been related to feed-borne mycotoxicosis, and the potential impact on animal health remains to be further elucidated. The risk for some mycotoxins can be reduced by dietary management. Among others, the occurrence of fumonisin-B1 and aflotoxin-B1, and to a lesser extent Loiter B (rye grass staggers), seem to be the most threatening mycotoxins in equine rations.
Cavalor Digest contains different active ingredients with different modes of action to increase digestion, improve gut health and gut flora, and reduce the risk of mycotoxicosis. It contains living yeast cultures both positively influencing digestion and nutrient absorption. Activated carbon and bentonites that act as mycotoxin-binding agents by adsorption on their surface are included to reduce mycotoxin risk. Cavalor Digest contains the amino acid methionine to support the suggested benefit of supplementing this amino acid during mycotoxicosis. It contains choline chloride, which has a "methionine saving effect" and plays a role in fat metabolism. A variety of herbs as oregano, anise, melissa and cumin have been added to enhance the digestibility of the ration and improve palatability.
Add 30-45 grams/1.06- 1.59 oz to the daily ration for a minimum of 4 weeks.
Do not use longer than 6 weeks. May follow up with Cavalor Vitaflor 365.
