The Powerful Effect of Butyric Acid and Zinc

ButiPEARL Z EQ – the first product of its kind on the market – provides supplemental butyric acid and zinc to help strengthen the intestinal tract of the horse.

Why Feed ButiPEARL Z EQ?

The combination of zinc and butyric acid strengthens the lining of the gut, leading to improved nutrient absorption and a stronger barrier against pathogens, parasites and toxins. A healthier gut means less Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS).

 

ButiPEARL Z EQ Benefits

  • Provides two important nutrients that play a vital role in gut health – butyric acid and zinc
  • Encapsulation technology allows for release through the upper and lower gut1,2
  • Improves overall gut health, which can lead to improved performance and wellbeing

 

LGS happens when your horse's gastrointestinal tract is compromised, allowing harmful substances to cross the intestinal barrier into the blood stream. Below is a list of some of the symptoms of LGS.

  • Not performing at previous or expected level
  • Chronic or recurrent colic
  • Change in behavior or personality
  • Laminitis
  • Insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome
  • "Girthy" when saddled
  • Loose manure or diarrhea
  • Skin allergies
Build a barrier against leaky gut

The intestinal barrier is regularly exposed to up to 10 trillion microorganisms, making it extremely important to keep it functioning properly.3 Strengthen that barrier and maintain performance by feeding your horse ButiPEARL Z EQ. Learn more:
