Top Spec Ulsakind Cubes
Product code: BA0165
UlsaKind Cubes are very low starch and formulated to provide
calories for condition (12MJ/kg) whilst being highly sympathetic to the
digestive system, even when it is compromised by extreme acidity.
UlsaKind Cubes are ideal in those circumstances where the internal
surface of the stomach has been eroded, because they contain very high
levels of β-glucans which form a gel and coat the stomach lining with a
protective film. The gel-like stomach contents are less likely to splash
the upper squamous epithelium in the stomach.
These β-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
β-glucans in UlsaKind Cubes bind to sugars in the intestine, their
absorption is slowed and the glycaemic index of the feed is lowered.
The TopSpec UlsaKind Cubes formula also contains 1% of a marine-derived
ingredient with established buffering properties. This calcium and
magnesium-rich substance has been scientifically proven to reduce
environmental acidity in the equine stomach (in vitro) for up to six
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.
