Yes, the products can be used together or individually.
When do I use ADR Paste, and when do I use ADR Powder?
ADR Paste is intended for young foals and horses that cannot or will not eat grain.
ADR Paste is also helpful in situations when delivery of the product into the
gastrointestinal system must be guaranteed. ADR Powder is top-dressed onto a
grain meal and fed as part of a daily maintenance program.

Powder 25 grams?

mixed with 5 grams of a carrier. Therefore, both have the same concentration of
How many CFU (colony forming units) does ADR have? Is this more than
ADR Paste and Powder have nine trillion CFU. This represents about twice as
much as some other leading brands.
Is it dangerous to have too many CFU of yeast ?
No. If the horse does not use the yeast, it is passed out with the feces.
ADR blends probiotics and yeast extracts in a safe and powerful formula suitable
for all horses. Using three key ingredients, ADR features a multiprong approach to
digestive health. The ingredients work synergistically to keep the gastrointestinal
tract healthy enough to ward off challenges by pathogenic bacteria that most
commonly affect the equine population.

world—Australia, Japan, England, South Africa, Ireland, Canada, Germany. In
2005, he forged a relationship with KPP to increase the exposure of products he

INGREDIENTS THAT WORK
A chief function of the hindgut is the fermentation of
forages, which ensures horses have sufficient energy
to fuel growth and exercise. Fermentation, however,
is dependent upon a robust population of beneficial
microorganisms. Stress, disease, and other factors
are sometimes detrimental to the vitality of this
microorganism population. As the hindgut becomes
depopulated of microorganisms and fermentation
slows, the digestive and absorptive capacity of the
hindgut decreases and appetite becomes less vigorous.
The ingredients in ADR provide a unique blend of
direct-fed microbials, yeast cultures, and yeast
extracts which support normal hindgut health.
