The important mycotoxins include Zearalenone and various Aflatoxins.
Bacillus subtilis (Natto) has been shown to decrease Zearalenone by 78% compared with Lactobacilli (54-62%). Zearalenone may contaminate grains and legumes that are used in feeding your horses.
Bacillus subtilis (Natto) has also been shown to have antifungal properties, for example against Candida albicans. Preventing fungal growth and limiting mycotoxin production before mycotoxins have their toxic effects in the body should be a preferred strategy.
The inorganic elements of humates adsorb polar mycotoxins such as aflatoxins, where they have been shown to have a high affinity for Aflatoxin B1. Humates may also line the gut wall with the additive effect of inhibiting mycotoxin absorption.
Ascophyllum nodosum extracts contain phycophytic substances that “act to compensate for the adverse conditions created by mycotoxins”.
Dynavyte MicroBiome Support contains three ingredients (Bacillus subtilis (Natto), humates and Ascophyllum nodosum) scientifically proven to be effective against mycotoxins and their effects.
A recently published study in the Journal of Food Processing and Preservation has demonstrated additional information about Bacillus subtilis (Natto) and the mycotoxin Zearalenone.
This study titled: The ability of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus natto to degrade zearalenone and its application in food, has shown that Bacillus subtilis (Natto) actually degrades the mycotoxin zearalenone in liquid food and dry food.
Dynavyte MicroBiome Support contains Bacillus subtilis (Natto) at the minimum level of 1 - 10 x 10(8) units per litre.
