Why use PhyteQuine™?

Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA) and Butyric Acid production

The main source of nutrition for the cells in the colon, University of Queensland trials show that sugarcane fibre is fermented at a more uniform rate the whole length of the colon and produces much higher proportions of butyric acid which is associated with reduced inflammation.

Proven to be safe for horses

Feeding trials
Phase 1 began with firstly feeding 4 horses 300g per day per horse split between night and day feeds over a 4 week period. No obvious issues with observed with the horses taking this amount of PhyteQuine. 2 horses where in work and 2 horses spelling.

After the 4 weeks, PhyteQuine has then being used in the evening feeds of 6 horses regularly, generally when they have come into work, whilst in work and when their hard feed was increased at 60g per feed per horse. A visual improvement in their eating patterns and general health was observed.

Efficacy of dosage for Humans in trials and in the field is 1.5g/serve twice daily a calculation of 20g/serve twice daily has been applied to Horses.

  • Australian Made and Owned

  • No added preservatives or chemical stimulants

  • Whole-plant — combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects

  • High in Plant-based Silica (Si) — bone strength

  • PhyteQuine™ feeds the diverse microbiome populations

  • Shelf stable

In the field
Anecdotal evidence has shown no side affects from horses being fed PhyteQuine by purchasers.

Bone Density
Silicon in soils is taken up by plants. Plants secrete organic acids at the tips of their roots. These acids dissolve oxides and other inorganic mineral salts, freeing the minerals in their ionic, pure form so that they can be absorbed. The silicon level in plants depends on species (grasses are higher than legumes) and rises when soil levels are higher. source: equisearch

The country’s leading research institution on silica supplementation in horses, the Department of Animal Science at Michigan State University, has recently published the paper “Mineral balance in horses fed two supplemental silicon sources.” While both sodium aluminium silicate (SA) and orthosilicic acid (OSA) were able to alter calcium retention and bone metabolism, only OSA was able to alter silica retention, digestibility and plasma concentration.

The bottom line: scientific studies have shown that certain types of silica are more bioavailable in the horse than others and that concerns over potential mineral imbalances are unfounded. Research in horses has proven the benefits of silica on bone growth and development while research in other species has shown that dietary deficiencies of silica can lead to deterioration of connective tissue strength and integrity.

HFS Health – Health Care Practitioner Extended Research Information (HCP)

The document – Health Care Practitioner is to summarise the current research and functional claims for Kfibre™/ PhyteQuine™ (both human and animal research).

Analysis on sugarcane has revealed an astonishing amount of Silica (Si)

Analysis documentation available upon request. One (1) serve of Kfibre™ (20g) contains 520mg of plant Silica

Published Reflux Trials (Nutrition Journal)

And anecdotal evidence show that sugarcane fibre works on both reflux and GERD/GORD, trials were to measure efficacy where it was proven to work equal to or better than any treatment regime on the market.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease & Colitis studies “Mouse trials”

Trials resulted in significant = reductions in inflammation on the Disease Activity Index (DAI). Pathology performed on the subjects also demonstrated large reductions in inflammation as measured by C-Reactive Protein (CRP) biomarkers. These inflammation marker reductions were also noted from the pathology performed during the 90 person Kfibre™ weight loss study.

Inflammation Reduction

Prebiotic Kfibre™ alone or as synbiotic are effective in reducing severity of chemically induced colitis in mice. Preconditioning of mice with pre-, pro- and synbiotic treatments prior to DSS-induction reduced the severity of disease symptoms. “Efficacy of probiotic and prebiotic combinations for improved gut health and ameliorating gut inflammation” – University of Tasmania (International Scientific Conference Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health, 18th-21st June 2018 – Tanvi Shinde, Roger Stanley).
