Having used GNF continuously now for four years I am delighted to say that we have had no digestive problems with any of our horses. I recommend this product to any clients whose animals are showing mild resistance to the leg who could potentially be suffering from gastric disturbances.

Since using TRM’s GNF I have had zero stomach problems, the horses look great and perform consistently - it’s a must for any competition horse.

It is important to me that my horses don’t suffer from gastric disturbances. I have found that by using GNF my horses are in top condition and perform well all year round.

At Greg Eurell Thoroughbred Racing we feed GNF as it ensures our horses are well from the inside out. Our horses are eating up happily, keeping condition better, and are overall much brighter and more relaxed when on the GNF. We would highly recommend GNF to anyone with performance horses – it works!

Seaweed Extract (from Laminaria Hyperborea)
Creates a floating raft of gel which helps to protect the non glandular part of the stomach from acid.
Classified as prebiotics (Mikkelsen and Jensen, 2004); substances that are recognised to stimulate growth of desirable bacteria (Kapiki et al., 2007), which can result in a positive symbiotic relationship between bacteria and host (Gibson and Roberfroid, 1995).
Form a food substrate for the beneficial bacteria in the hind gut.
Fructooligosaccharides can remain available as substrates for microbial populations to utilise, and thus promote increased intestinal efficiency
An important amino acid for repair of epithelial cells.
Glutamine supplementation has proven to increase intestinal performance (Yan and Qiu-Zhou, 2006), and has been found to decrease over-expression of pro-inflammatory genes, thus leading to a reduction in intestinal damage of rats receiving acetic acid supplementation (Fillmann et al., 2007).
Is an essential amino acid and studies have shown that restriction of this nutrient may limit intestinal mucin synthesis and reduce gut barrier function (Hamard et al., 2007;Faure et al., 2005)
Is a brown kelp or seaweed that has been found to be extremely palatable and provide increased digestible energy sources for sheep kept on the Orkney island of North Ronaldsay (Hansen et al., 2003).
L. hyperborea contains higher amounts of vitamins, minerals and proteins, when compared to conventional vegetable sources (ibid.)
