Nutrient Buffer® H/G is a 100% natural nutritional equine supplement that contains NO DRUGS. It's a blend of nutritional buffers, a full spectrum of micro-encapsulated probiotics, and USP Grade vitamins and minerals, including organic forms of minerals designed to address hind gut ulcers and help manage EPM as well as other neurological syndromes. Nutrient Buffer® H/G is an essential part of an equine dietary program intended to re-balance and restore hind gut integrity after environmental exposure(s) to toxins such as smoke, chemicals, poor feed and water quality or trauma.
Horses with a history of upper gastric (stomach) ulcers have a much higher chance of developing an intestinal ulcer soon after. Excess acid travels from the stomach down into the gut and can degrade the protective mucous membrane which lines the intestinal tract. Without that protection, the acidity of fecal matter constantly rubbing directly on the flesh of the intestinal walls can cause hind gut ulcers, Leaky Gut Syndrome, serious nutritional deficiencies and can increase susceptibility to opportunistic infections that cause neurological hind end weakness - such as EPM.
If hind gut health is neglected, the trillions of protozoa and other parasites from the gut can slip through the intestinal walls into the body cavity and blood stream of the horse - where they can cause neurological syndromes and other chronic opportunistic infections which can bog the immune system down dramatically.
If your horse has a weak hind end which is unrelated to physical injury, and if the horse has a long history of stomach ulcers, then there is a chance that one or more, opportunistic infections has caused the problem. Nutrient Buffer® H/G is designed to do for the hind gut what the original Nutrient Buffer® liquid does for the stomach. The two products combined are a complete buffering and probiotics restoration system for the equine digestive tract.
When you spend a lot of money on great genetics in your horse, the last thing you need is to successfully treat a stomach ulcer only to neglect the most likely resulting problem in the intestinal tract (hind gut).
Nutrient Buffer® H/G will provide special nutritional support for the immune system, basal metabolism, free radical scavengers for natural anti-inflammatory action and buffering for the digestive system.
We approach healing hind gut ulcers by addressing the underlaying cause of the problem. Neutralizing excess acidity is the first step to helping the hind gut heal, so that the cells lining the hind gut can begin absorbing nutrition again, and additional probiotics are also need to release optimal nutrients from fecal matter.

Equine Ulcers & Colic in Horses
Ulcers are common in all kinds of horses. Learn how to spot the signs of a potential ulcer, what you can do, and how stomach scoping can be helpful.
Drugs have many shortcomings, and H₂ Blockers have some unique ones. When your horse builds a tolerance after prolonged daily use, you find yourself continually increasing the dosage to achieve the same results.
Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) shut down excess acid production in the stomach. Accurate dosing can be very tough to estimate, and excessive use can lead to poor digestion of food and longer term health problems.
