Animalife Vetrogut Acid Fix is a unique, highly efficient equine buffer made from calcareous marine algae. The honeycomb structure breaks down slowly in the horse to stabilise pH and, as a result, improves the performance and health of your horse. The benefits of Acid fix include reduced risk of acidosis and stomach ulceration, increased fibre digestion, reduced risk of laminitis and bloating as well as improved dropping consistency.
Harvested from red algae (Lithothamnion) from the sea off the coast of Iceland, Lithothamnion has a honeycomb structure that provides a large surface area of (>10m2) per gram and a slow release of bio-available minerals, calcium, magnesium and silicon. Research shows this has significant buffering action for 4-6 hours under simulated in-vitro stomach digestion conditions and also stimulated in vitro hindgut fermentation activities.
