Karbo Essentials+ are a unique concentrated formulation of the Karbo
Combo+ supplement, available in powder form for the young and debilitated
animal with compromised immune systems.  This formula of micronized
food particles allows for quicker digestion and can be mixed with yogurt, ice
cream or soft food.  Karbo Essentials+ can also be mixed with a liquid and
administered by syringe for animals refusing solid food.

Karbo Essentials+ have proven especially helpful in alleviating the
dangerous symptoms of diarrhea and dehydration in newborns caused by
pathogenic bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, environmental stress and
especially disease parasites such as worms, coccidia and giardia.  

The primary active ingredients in the Karbo Formula are mannan and glucan
sugars.  The mannan sugars contain oligosaccharides, which have proven, in
animal field trials, to reduce diarrhea, increase food intake, increase ADG
(average daily gain) and reduce feed costs.

Many pathogenic bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi and toxins in the GI
tract, and the whole body, are attracted to and attach themselves to the
mannan sugars.  Once attached to the sugars, or oligosaccharides, they
become inactive, cannot colonize, and are rafted out of the body.

In addition to the above, Karbo Essentials+ contains Calcium Carbonate,
Dried Yeast, Brewers Dried Yeast, Dried Saccharomyces Cerevisiae
Fermentation Solubles, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Dried Bacillus Subtilis
Fermentation Extract, Oligosaccharides, Encapsulated Enzymes,
Niacinamide, Kelp and Origanum Essential Oils.

The addition of the proteolytic enzyme CL fortifies the Karbo Essentials+
formula to bind ammonia released during protein and amino acid
breakdown.  High ammonia levels are toxic to bacteria necessary for
complete digestion.  The ammonia binding by the CL enzymatic fraction is
reversible, and the ammonia release takes place when the level of ammonia
present drops to a constant level.

In the digestive tract, the reversible binding of ammonia for amino acid
synthesis can create an additional pool of ammonia for amino acid synthesis.
This leads to bacterial growth, which creates a more constant and uniform
supply of non-ammonia nitrogen with bacterial origin to the small intestine.
