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.
