Gastric Support Just Got Easier
To help support equine gastric health, ADM Animal Nutrition is proud to offer Forage First® GS! Utilizing a proprietary mineral complex of marine-derived calcium and magnesium in a unique honeycomb structure; lecithin, a naturally-occurring phospholipid that can interact with the gastric mucosa, helping strengthen the lining of the stomach at the cellular level; and pectin, derived from chicory root, a water-soluble fiber that can form a gel inside the gastrointestinal tract increasing viscosity. Higher viscosity of stomach content slows rate of passage, which may help protect the mucosa from hydrochloric acid. This supplement is designed to support a healthy gastric pH while helping protect and strengthen gastric mucosa. ADM Animal Nutrition.
