Are you concerned about unseen mould in your hay or a fungus outbreak in your pasture?
For example from Paspalum ergot fungus or certain strains of endophyte perennial Ryegrass.
Does your horse show symptoms of ryegrass staggers (loss of muscle coordination, trembling, anxious behaviour)?
Then consider a toxin binder - we recommend Mycosorb A+.
Ryegrass, Paspalum and others are known for causing photosynthesis action.
Symptoms are sunburn and blistering of pink skin on faces and legs (ie; greasy heel or mud fever).
When an animal consumes a plant or chemical with these pigments (e.g., polyphenolic), they circulate to the skin where they're exposed to UV light and cause oxidative injury to skin cells. Liver damage in a horse might not be noticed until the animal develops photosensitisation.
Mycosorb A+® reduces the threat of mycotoxins in animal feed and has other advantages, including:
- Contributes to managing the impact of mycotoxins.
- Supports immune function.
- Binds mycotoxins without binding nutrients
- Excretion of toxins via the faeces
The unique technology behind Mycosorb A+® makes it the most advanced mycotoxin binder on the market.
Safe for laminitic prone or insulin-resistant (IR)/elevated insulin horses.
Mycosorb A+ can be fed with any of the mineral mixes, Equine Amino, Mov-Ease, Hydrate Support and Diamond V XPC.
Comes in a 2kg bag.
Feeding rate (per day):
Mix with a damp feed. Ideally, divide the amount between meals if feeding more than once per day.
The standard dose for a 500kg horse - 10 g per day (2 g per 100kg)
High rate dose for a 500kg horse - 20 g per day (4 g per 100kg)
Mycosorb A+® reduces the risk of mycotoxins to an animal’s body by the process of adsorption. In the case of Mycosorb A+®, adsorption is the process by which carbohydrate components of yeast and algae cell walls bind to mycotoxins, removing them from the animal’s digestive tract.
The majority of Mycosorb A+® is a specific strain of yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
As well as containing yeast, Mycosorb A+® also contains algae. The algae are heterotrophic and are also grown under specific conditions to produce specific carbohydrates for the adsorption of mycotoxins.
Alone, algae have adsorption properties, however, it is capable of targeting different mycotoxins to the yeast. Therefore, by combining the two, an even larger range of mycotoxins are able to be absorbed.
Mycosorb A+By: Amanda Ward on 27 February 2020Amazing results within a week! Super happy!
Mycosorb A+By: Jane Hamilton on 23 February 2020I love this product and would have no hesitation in recommending it as a superior toxin-binder. Any problems we have had with allergies and 'head shaking' have resolved since using Mycosorb A+. The only thing (and it's pretty minor!) that could be improved about my latest purchase is the resealable plastic bag it came in with a double reseal strip. Since opening it I haven't been able to seal it at all!! I don't remember the previous packages being a problem.
