DIGESTIVE ENZYMES FOR HORSES

EquiNectar contains the Active Digestive Enzymes found within malted barley

Amylase

  • Amylase is the enzyme that breaks down starch. Horses normally produce very little amylase since they did not evolve to eat diets that were high in grain starch. Supplemental amylase will help your horse break down cereal starch.


Fructanase

  • Fructanase is an enzyme that breaks down fructans, which are complex sugars found in plants. Fructanase helps your horse to break down these complex sugars so they can be easily absorbed.

Phytase

  • Phytase is an enzyme that breaks down phytic acid, which is found in plants. Phytic acid is a compound that binds to minerals, such as phosphorus and calcium, making them unavailable for absorption by your horse. Phytase helps to improve the availability of essential nutrients from plant-based feeds.

Cellulase

  • Cellulase breaks down complex sugars found in plant cell walls, such as cellulose. This aids in the digestion of forage and hay, which are major components of your horse's diet.


Xylanase

  • Xylanase breaks down xylans, which are complex sugars found in plants. Xylanase aids in the digestion of forage and hay.


Beta glucanase

  • Beta glucanase is an enzyme that breaks down beta-glucans. Beta-glucans are a type of polysaccharide, which are long chains of sugar molecules. Beta glucanase improves the digestibility of forage and hay.
