Hi,

Does anyone know where I could get some? And has anyone used it to help with their horses digestion? I've heard it's supposed to help with digestion as well as sooth their tummies. It's also supposed to be cheap and

Any info, much appreciated!

it contains all the B vitamins and yes it is supposed to be Gut friendly. We buy it at our local health food store in bulk. Way cheaper than other stuff for the same ingredients. Some feed mills have it.

We have been using yeast culture for a long time. The brand I get is Diamond V from our feed mill. Our stallion is on it and milled flax seed as a top dress on his supplement and he gleams like a black diamond even when he is rolling in the mud. I use it when I worm horses and when they are under stress as well.

Have also heard from a very reputable Stallion Owner, that they add a bottle of Guniss to their horses feed each day, with the same results, for their Brewers Yeast Fix.

I just started my older tb guy on Brewer,s Yeast.
I was using a B1 crumble.
I got the Brewers Yeast at a local health food store.
I bought the powder form,,2 lbs for $10.00. Give him approx. 1 tbs. daily.

Is 1tbs daily what should be fed?
Does it depend on amount of work or need for the yeast?
How much is too much, and how much is enough?

Hey there Elite,, I add 1 tablespoon to his feed once daily. Powder form. It is from a health food store for people,,so they could not really tell me the dosage.
That is the amount I chose,,I was doing the B1 Crumbles like I mentioned.
It was for stress, and a calmer for my older guy. I had heard about the Brewers Yeast,,thought I would give it a go.
Alot more reasonable in price then the B1.

Does brewers yeast have the same affect and properties of a probiotic? Say, something like Probio-Plus or Biotic 8???

Also, once a day is fine. Is there a difference if it is fed in the morning, as opposed to the evening?

My guy get his added to his night feed,,with his other supplements.
My thoughts are he is in for the night,,relaxed after a nice day of turnout ,to enjoy his grain,,not in a rush to eat in the morning and get turned out with his buds!!

I bought mine at the Bulk Barn where I live, and I can't remember specifics, but I filled one of the little clear bags they supply for powders, and along with some ginger-snaps for me, the entire package came to $6.
At a table spoon a night, I figure I have about a months worth of stuff for my mare.
Not bad, I think!
