Gelatin is the name for cooked collagen which is the most abundant protein found in our body.It is primarily made up of the amino acids glycine and proline. It also happens to be a gut-healing superfood!When you consume gelatin, it basically acts like spackle to fill any holes you have in your gut - protecting the stomach lining/gut mucosa which in turn helps to suppress the abrasiveness of gastric juices.

Probiotics are live microorganisms fed to promote healthy digestive and immune function. When these "good" bugs break down food ingredients that the body normally can't, they produce energy and vitamins for the body, food for cells in the cecum and colon, and byproducts that keep the "bad" bugs from growing. Research suggests probiotics are useful in repopulating the intestine with "good" bugs after antibiotic use and may benefit certain horses with diarrhea. A common term used for probiotics is direct-fed microbials (DFM).
