Ration Plus is a probiotic/prebiotic liquid preparation without the live organisms (all filtered off). It is the fermentation end product of the beneficial live bacteria in the horse’s gut. It promotes the proliferation of the native organisms in the horse’s gut, restore normal gastro-intestinal environment so feed would be digested, absorbed, and assimilated more effectively so the horse would pick up everything from the feed that you offer.
