Description

When the gut microbiome integrity is disrupted, this renders the immune response dysfunctional, so it's imperative to regenerate the friendly gut biome colonies and clear out the bad bacteria, in order to rebalance the gut microbiome and the immune system.

Vets are commonly prescribing antibiotics for Leaky Gut Syndrome, referring to it as a 'stomach infection'.

As we know, antibiotics not only have a mere 5% chance of working, they also annihilate the microbiome's beneficial biota in the intestines; it's these beneficial microbes which create the immune cells.

Leaky Gut is caused by dysbiosis in the microbiome - SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overload). This means the pro-inflammatory unfriendly gut bacteria have taken hold, including the now recognised Archaea strand, which are also now showing resistance to the majority of antibiotics that are commonly used against bacteria.

Hence. the antibiotics that many practitioners typically prescribe for gut bacterial infections are not only ineffective, but risk causing further long-term health damage. Human health studies now show the microbiome as a whole rarely recovers from an 'antibiotic' assault.

A botanical approach is less aggressive and has also been shown to be at least as effective as pharmaceutical antibiotics in clinical trials for SIBO treatment.

Furthermore, this could also have a profound knock-on effect on liver/kidney function, specifically a dysfunction in the detoxification because when there’s leaky gut, there’s an overload of toxins for the liver to metabolise (correct name biotransform).

Thing is, the kidneys are very much involved as well because the liver shunts all the transformed toxins to the kidneys for excretion, but if there’s a toxicity overload the kidneys become overwhelmed as well, so can’t shift all the toxins quickly enough out through the urine. Which means the toxins get flushed back round the body.

At the very root of the problem lies a tiny, yet critical, micronutrient - vitamin B6 - because the hindgut produces B6 in its activated form – scientific name P5P (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate). When the hindgut microbiome is disrupted, the activated B6 ‘P5P’ production becomes deficient, and here’s where it all goes badly wrong because … the liver needs this activated form of B6 - P5P – to break down – metabolise – those toxins. So if the liver and kidneys can’t do their job so the whole natural detoxification process gets messed up.

    Recommendations

    • Stemmy hay, fed 24/7, is going to be your saviour here to help restore the beneficial hindgut microbiome.
    • Spirulina is an excellent gut-mycotoxin binder and deacidifier; it's recommended to feed a tablespoon/day for 2-weeks to help deacidify the hindgut, especially useful if you've been feeding haylage. Alternatively see our EquiVitaA/VitaCompleteA range.
    • Feed our P5P activated form of B6 while the hindgut function is regenerating, in order to maintain the liver's toxin biotransformation/metabolising function.
    • Feed our GutAminos alongside this blend. While the SIBO-CARE is clearing out the pathogen toxins, the GutAminos support the reconnection of the damaged gut lining.
    • SIBO/leaky gut hurts - you would have likely seen gut flinching, biting, head swinging back to the gut, maybe even cow-kicking. Alleviate with our our DuoBute alongside our SIBO-CARE.

    Testimonials

    • 13.5.22 - KPU Protocol Hi Carol, I just wanted to touch base with you because I’m delighted to say Charlie and Alfie are both completely different from when I first contacted you. I threw myself in100% with all your advice and it totally paid off. The supplements got them right back on track. They are now both turned out 24/7 which I thought would never happen again. They have constant access to late cut hay and now have a big track around the field to graze with huge hedges available to graze from. They’re lightly rugged when needed and have access to their stables at all times. Currently they have just a handful of the agrobs chaff you recommended with their equivita once daily. Both boys have stopped peeing dark brown and it’s clear now instead. Charlie’s energy is fabulous - he’s gone from hardly having the will to trot to being back to his fiesty self! I forgot how amazing he feels. There’s so much power in his tank it’s great. We’ll definitely be eventing again later in the year, which is so wonderful as I really believed his career was over at the end of last year. I even had to sort him out with better brakes as they massively failed the other day! Alfie is feeling lovely too, far more sensible and not storming off. Both boys have lost their bulgy bits over their eyes and the hollows have returned. Also Charlie’s sheath is no longer swollen. They’re glossy and shiny and happy. I’ve noticed that their feet are so much better too and Charlie is now able to cope with stoney ground miles better than he ever has before. (I’ve owned him 14yrs). So, thankyou so much for all your advice, it’s been wonderful to watch the boys improve so well. You’ve been full of such wonderful knowledge and advice. I’m not sure what I would have done without you. Marion
    • 11.4.22 - KPU Protocol Annie has been going great guns on your KPU plan now, she is now up to dose of SIBO-CARE and not far off on your StressTonic. The difference in her is amazing. She has many days now with no faecal water at all and when she does it is minimal compared to what it was and her actual faeces is formed balls. 9 times out of 10 it doesn’t smell like and she is going a lot less too. Megan & Annie
    • 24.2.21 - SIBO-CARE, GUTAMINOS & P5P I just ... I dont know what to say, I mean maybe you think I’m a crazy Swede LOL … I think I was hallucinating because after the first morning dose, in the afternoon she already in her eyes and body language looked "better". Her posture was upright, and yesterday afternoon, day 2, she ran like crazy and rolled on the ground and was strong with energy! Today, day 3, she stretched her body (hasn’t done that for a long time) and ate her steamed hay with a good appetite and not just picking through it.The first night my husband said, “Look at her poop! It’s better.” I thought it was maybe just a lucky one, but day 2’s poop is already 50% better in colour and shape. Gas, absolutely better already.C´mon. For real?! LOL … Is it even possible? I know you said you couldn’t promise me anything, but this is too good to be true. I cried this morning because if this is true, then I can already see the light and the hope for this girl and our future. Thank you so much! Janet & Lilly, Sweden
    • 21.1.21 - Thank you SO much for your help with Rupert's faecal water situation. He is like a different horse, much happier, not uncomfortable and churning out less and better formed poos. What more could I wish for?? Barbara & Rupert (Barbara followed our recommended SIBO-CARE/GutAminos/DuoBute/P5P programme)
    • 12.1.21 - Hi Carol, Bally has responded well to the SIBO and his poo is now normal in consistency and smell. Many thanks, Sharon
