Frequently Asked Questions
When should I feed Fibregest to my alpaca or llama?
Soluble fibre in 3mm pellet form is ideal for both young and old alike. The small particle size (like feed that has been chewed for a long time) aids the digestive system of the camelid by providing a high quality, more available, energy source for fermentative foregut bacteria.
Maintaining natural foregut digestion is crucial for the health and vitality of alpacas and llamas. The nature of the feed can have dramatic effects on wellbeing, as all food goes straight into the fermentation vat of the forestomach where factors like motility, gas eructation, regurgitation, remastication and reswallowing are all part of the normal feeding process. Fibregest is very complementary to this digestive process in terms of the nutritional, physical and supplementary content. The digestibility of the soluble fibre will energize microbial activity, so maintaining a high rate of nutrient release for the benefit of the camelid. The criteria for maintaining functional fermentation:
A constant pH of between 6 and 7, i.e. slightly acidic to neutral conditions.
A high fibre and low/non grain diet to sustain populations of cellulolytic bugs.
A high fibre diet to maintain saliva production, gut motility and gas eructation.
A high fibre diet to maximise regurgitation, remastication and reswallowing.
Contains 4 Active Nutraceuticals
The Unique Oatinol Delivery System
Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies four active nutraceuticals to:
Maintain gut cell integrity.
Maintain the lining of the gut.
Support the immune system.
Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.
Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers
To support the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.
Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants
A natural, highly bioavailable form of vitamin E to help maintain the integrity of the gut lining and aid absorption.
Oat Derived Beta Glucans
With prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.
Proven to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.
