Top Spec UlsaKind Cubes are formulated to be highly sympathetic to the digestive system, even when it is compromised by extreme acidity. That means that TopSpec UlsaKind Cubes are suitable for horses prone to, or suffering from ESGD (gastric ulcers). Whilst also providing calories for condition (12MJ/Kg).
UlsaKind Cubes contain very high levels of beta-glucans which form a gel and coat the stomach lining with a protective film making them ideal in those circumstances where the internal surface of the stomach has been eroded. The gel-like stomach contents are less likely to splash the upper squamous epithelium in the stomach.
These beta-glucans also slow the rate of passage of feed through the stomach and intestines because of the sticky, gel-like consistency of the feed. In the stomach, this means that the periods of time when the stomach is empty and therefore highly acidic, are reduced. Because the beta-glucans in UlsaKind Cubes bind to sugars in the intestine, their absorption is slowed and the glycaemic index of the feed is lowered.
UlsaKind Cubes are designed to be added to a TopSpec Feed Balancer or supplement and therefore contain no added vitamins or trace-elements. They are, however, enriched with the minerals calcium, sodium and magnesium. The calcium and magnesium sources have a mild, short-term, buffering effect against stomach acid.
Top Spec UlsaKind Cubes also contains 1% of a marine-derived ingredient with established buffering properties. This calcium and magnesium-rich substance have been scientifically proven to reduce environmental acidity in the equine stomach (in vitro) for up to six hours.
