The same trusted and proven formula of our toxin binder for horses but in a great new look!
HYGAIN® SAFEGUARD EQ® is a pelleted broad-spectrum mycotoxin binder formulated for all equines, which may assist in the quick and effective absorption of mycotoxins, minimizing associated negative health and performance problems.
Due to the difficulty to predict the occurrence of mycotoxins in your horse’s diet, it is advised to add a broad-spectrum mycotoxin binder to your horse’s diet, which simply binds the mycotoxins and passes them through the digestive tract, exiting with the manure.

Certain fungi found on fresh pasture grasses, conserved roughage (hay, chaff, straw) and in grains can produce secondary compounds called mycotoxins. Several types of mycotoxins exist which may interact, especially under favourable environmental conditions, such as in warm and humid climates (as well as in improperly stored feeds). Mycotoxins may contaminate feeds or grains and are hard to detect due to their odourless, tasteless and invisible presence.
The horse’s digestive system is sensitive to the effects of mycotoxins, as the gastric juices in the stomach cannot effectively deactivate the mycotoxins and these therefore enter the sensitive small intestine and hindgut. Once mycotoxins reach the hindgut they may affect the intestinal wall or enter the horse’s blood stream, which can result in respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological and reproductive issues.
This is why a toxin binder for horses is crucial to their diet.
Even though symptoms are usually non-specific, associated clinical signs with the existence of mycotoxins in horse’s diet include:
HYGAIN SAFEGUARD EQ can be added directly to your horse’s feed.
HYGAIN SAFEGUARD EQ should be fed at a rate of 30g per day (one level scoop) based on a 500kg horse.
May assist in the quick and effective absorption of mycotoxins.
"SafeguardEQ is one of my favourite supplements! I love that it binds the mycotoxins and passes them through the digestive tract and out with the manure. I believe Safeguard EQ supports good gut heath and I have witnessed a significant improvement in manure consistency in one of my top horses. I highly recommend Safeguard EQ if you're wanting to protect your horse from the sometimes hard to identify mycotoxins found in the day to day consumption of your horses diet."
