Activated carbon adsorbs (binds to) toxins such as heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, and even excess acid and removes it from the horse's system. Activated carbon is not digested, but instead passes through the horse's digestive system adsorbing toxins as it goes, and is then passed out through the manure. Toxins in the digestive tract can cause discomfort and prevent the horse from being able to absorb and utilize its food and nutrients properly. This can affect its overall health leading to difficulty putting on, and/or maintaining condition, poor health, the development of ulcers and other gut related issues. Carbon Care EQ adsorbs these toxins, helps to detoxify your horses gut and may assist in helping horses suffering poor condition and reducing signs of gut discomfort.
