Hey everyone! First of all, sorry for being so MIA, Galileu had a terrible week and I spent most of my time taking care of him… Now that he’s feeling better I finally have some time to write!
While in Paris, I had the chance to meet Horse Remedy, a shop that sells natural products for horses, and to bring with me some.
The first one that I have tested is Proferm, a bran fermented with Effective Microorganisms (EM) – a combination of dominant microorganisms that exist freely in the nature. They consist of four active ingredients:
- Photoautrophic bacteria, producing substances propitious to the growth of microorganisms;
- Lactic acid bacteria which suppress pathogenic germs and promote better decomposition of organic matter;
- Yeast that allows the production of bioactive substances like vitamins and antioxidants;
- And, last but not least, fungi that stimulate fermentation.
Proferm is used as a nutritional supplement that strengthens the intestinal flora and improves the digestion and assimilation of nutrients.
The first time I tested it was on my friend’s horse, Halona. She was having diarrhea and I remembered I had Proferm with me so we decided to try it.
We gave her 50 grams/day during about two weeks and it worked amazingly well. The results were better than I expected and they were really fast.
Now it will be Gali’s time to try Proferm… He had an infection and because of it he also had a colic, he’s feeling much better now and when he starts eating normally I will mix this supplement on his food to restore his intestinal flora and to prevent future problems.
PS.: Thanks to the Horse Remedy team, they were really fast answering all my questions! <3
