EQUINE | ADVERTORIAL SUPPORTS AND MAINTAINS DIGESTIVE HEALTH LEVUCELL SC stimulates the growth and activity of benefi cial bacteria, particularly the fi bre fermenting (cellulolytic) bacteria making it ideal for use in horses. The natural yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain SC I-1077 was selected by Lallemand in collaboration with INRA of Theix. LEVUCELL SC promotes condition and vitality Healthy coat condition is often regarded as an indication of health and vitality. LEVUCELL SC supports health on the inside, which supports health and vitality on the outside with improved top line and overall body condition. Regular users of LEVUCELL SC for their horses have noted improvement in overall coat condition even through the periods of seasonal moulting. LEVUCELL SC has also been suggested to modify behaviour with the incidence of stereotypic behaviour such as wood chewing or wind sucking being reduced and horses anecdotally showing a calmer disposition and more concentration during training, which may be translated into improved performance. LEVUCELL SC 1 2 3 improves feed utilisation stabilizes the hindgut reducing the risk of acidosis improves growth and development for foals 1 LEVUCELL SC improves feed utilisation LEVUCELL SC helps to maintain a suitable environment in the hindgut to support a healthy balance of microfl ora and boost the level of friendly anaerobic bacteria present. LEVUCELL SC stabilizes hingut pH by competing for lactic acid producing bacteria’s substrates. LEVUCELL SC provides some of the nutrients essential for the development of a healthy balance of microfl ora (amino acids, B vitamins, etc …). As a result, the diges tible fraction of fi ber (hemicellulose and cellulose) becomes more accessible to the action of specifi c microorganisms. LEVUCELL SC improves the feed value of this digestible fraction by stimulating the growth and • increasing of | the cellulotic Volume the 20 activity Issue 1 April 2018 and • hemicellulolitic microfl ora. 80 70 8 LEVUCELL SC 45
