Yes the entire Immubiome collection is show safe.
Not a single ingredient is a banned substance as defined by the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI). The FEI publishes the ‘Equine Prohibited Substances List' (EPSL) and can be viewed in its entirety at http://prohibitedsubstancesdatabase.feicleansport.org/search/
As an added precaution, all of our raw ingredients have literally been put to the test; consumed by an appropriate pool of horses for a set duration with subsequent blood tests for the detection of prohibited substances. Experiment and analysis protocols were developed by LCH in France, the go to drug testing lab of the equine industry. Be assured that you can continue to rely on our uncompromising commitment to quality and unrelenting focus on the needs of our internationally competing clientele.
No we do not use sweeteners, ever.
Research shows that consumption of foods high in sugar (like molasses) can cause inflammation. This occurs because sugary foods cause a spike in a hormone called insulin, which in turn initiates a cascade of biochemical reactions that lead to inflammation. Most aches and pains involve inflammation and even if pain is the result of trauma, symptoms may be exasperated and prolonged by eating foods high in sugar.
No we do not use fillers, ever.
Fillers lower the cost of consumable goods. For this reason many equine brands fill their supplement products with cheap fillers such as corn, wheat, rice bran, flaxseed, soy meal, oatmeal, molasses and other sugars. While some fillers such as rice bran are a good choice to increase caloric intake, they are often included in feeds (foodstuffs for animals), so why supplement with more of the same? At Immubiome, we do not make feed. We are a supplement company, sourcing only the finest quality nutraceuticals that are both active and effective. We believe that a good supplement should, by definition of ‘supplement’, complete or enhance something else when added to it. When added to a horses daily feed, Immubiome products deliver support for specific equine conditions and natural physiological processes.
How to read an ingredient deck: Product ingredients are listed by quantity, from greatest to least amounts. This means that whatever ingredient is listed first is the ingredient that the manufacturer used the most of. Likewise, whichever ingredient is listed last is the ingredient that the manufacturer used the least of.
Quality is our first priority. As horsemen ourselves, we at Immubiome believe that our beloved equine partners and athletes deserve the best quality of life possible. We believe that it is our duty to ensure their overall health and state of well-being. It is with great pride and privilege that we are helping to make this possible industry wide. Immubiome quality begins in the development of our formulas, sourcing only the highest quality and most bio-available form of raw ingredients to produce finished goods that are safe and effective. Each lot is independently analyzed for potency, purity and contaminants.
The benefits of consuming colostrum far outweigh those of any other protein supplement. While colostrum and whey protein both have been shown to build lean muscle, colostrum accomplishes this in a shorter time span and provides many other benefits that whey protein cannot. Bovine colostrum in particular may in fact be the world’s greatest super food. Designed by nature to supply everything needed to maintain health and prevent disease, immune components work directly in the gut to defend against pathogens, while specialized proteins help to support tissue repair and build lean muscle mass. Colostrum has been shown to drastically reduce gut permeability, otherwise known as ‘Leaky Gut’, stimulate normal cell growth and regeneration, speed the healing and recovery of muscle, cartilage and bone. We responsibly source human grade bio-active cold-pressed colostrum - only the best for our four legged athletes.
We recommend Immubiome Lean Muscle for horses that are insulin resistant and for horses suffering from Cushing's Disease. The Lean Muscle formulation contains the highest level of colostrum, which has been shown to help balance blood sugar levels and promote muscle development, which is problematic for some IR and Cushing’s horses.
Yes, Immubiome products can be safely fed alongside other products. However, since we use superfood ingredients much bioavailable nutrition is built right into the supplements themselves. Outside of a good electrolyte such as sea salt or Redmond salt and your horse’s daily feed, our formulas are designed to support the whole horse.
Most horses love Immubiome due to the sweet aroma, but if your horse is a finicky eater, we recommend introducing the product slowly. Start off with ¼ to ½ scoop mixed thoroughly into moist feed for a couple of days, progressing to the full scoop.
