Supporting Digestive Health


The overall health and performance of a horse is greatly influenced by its digestive system

The horse has evolved to require a minimum amount of dietary fibre as a food source for the micro-organisms located in the caecum and large intestine, collectively called the hindgut.

Disruption of normal hindgut function by less than adequate dietary fibre or excess dietary starch often reduces the ability of the hindgut to maintain a near-neutral pH, which can lead to acidic conditions, often referred to as acidosis.

Supplementation of the horse’s diet can be useful to help maximise the energy and nutrients coming from forage and help beneficially modify the hindgut environment.

Following  the successful launch of the original Lifeforce Formula supplement, Alltech has developed Lifeforce Focus and Lifeforce Elite to form the Lifeforce range.

Each supplement delivers a combination of natural ingredients to optimise digestive health to horses of a specific lifestyle.

The Lifeforce Range consists of three all natural daily nutritional supplements:

  • Lifeforce Focus –for leisure horses and horses in low activity.
  • Lifeforce Formula – for breeding horses and leisure horses in moderate activity.
  • Lifeforce Elite – for competition horses and those in high activity.

Alltech are title sponsor of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy, France.  The Lifeforce range is the cornerstone of the Alltech Equine Advantage series, developed to benefit horses at every stage of life, from breeding stock to pleasure and performance animals.
