My horse has suffered from an irritable tummy for ages, and was often girthy. I’ve tried many products to try to help him, to no avail until now. Ultimate Ease has completely sorted him and he’s much happier. Can’t recommend it enough.

Early days but benefits showing
Lynsey - 05/01/2022 22:20
First time buying this as my horse showed the first signs of ulcers again, and other feedmark supplement have helped him for other issues. It seems to have caught it in time and he's happy again.
Gwen - 04/01/2022 18:22
It smelled very minty but my pony wouldn't entertain it. I noticed it contained licorice and it doesn't suit him.
Christine - 03/01/2022 12:15
Only been using a little while, but seems to be making a difference.  Horse seems more willing and soft.

My mare has been a lot calmer and relaxed on Ultimate Ease, and the proof was found that the product really worked when she was rescoped.

Grade 2 ulcers in November 2019. Scoped clear Jan 2020.
Used Ultimate Ease for all of 2020, rescope in October 2020 and vet said you can clearly see where ulcers have tried to form, but been unable, due to the use of product. Very happy owner and horse!

The pony has a tendency to mild colic and this seems to help her digestive system.
Trusted Feefo Customer - 21/10/2020 20:54
It has changed my horse and we could not be without it. Definately a must for horses in need of overall gut support from acid issues to gut bacteria.

My second tub of Ultimate Ease. Started to use it after my pony had sand colic and it was cheaper than the  supplement the vet supplied and the ingredients were similar. He seemed more comfortable on it. When I ran out I think he was noticeably a little less comfortable. It’s worth it for peace of mind.
Trusted Feefo Customer - 18/03/2020 20:04
Works perfectly really helped my horse

Definite improvement in my horses droppings which are now properly formed. Much more relaxed when eating ( food used to be thrown everywhere ) now it’s eaten slowly and calmly. Grumpiness has subsided. Just looks much happier in himself and this was after just a week of starting.

This product has improved my horses gut and firmed up his droppings when other products from different manufacturers did not.
Trusted Feefo Customer - 30/10/2019 15:08
Really impressed overall, used the live chat for advice on supplements which I took and bought both the ultimate ease and best-flex HA with an amazing discount offered to me. I have now ordered again the same supplements a month later in the refill bags which come in paper packaging which is really great. Super happy over all and my horse seems to be really loving the supplements both in taste and in general health.
Trusted Feefo Customer - 30/10/2019 10:19
Seems to have made a difference after only a couple of weeks.

Perfect supplement covering all bases so no need for multiple products. Horse eats it up and it seems to do the trick.

Superb product, has really helped our 2 TB’s who has awful ulcers.

Ultimate ease has made a huge difference to a horse of mine that suffers with ulcers. Within a few weeks he was a different horse - virtually horizontal in comparison to the box walking stress head he was previously.
Would highly recommend.

Good

My mare loves Ultimate Ease, if I forget to add it to her dinner, she turns her nose up.  It's a well balanced supplement to help keep her stomach settled.
Trusted Feefo Customer - 28/07/2019 21:02
My horse has a much improved attitude to her work.

Seems to be doing the job but most importantly she eats it

|New product i've used for over a year now & proves to be right for my horse.
Jenna - 08/05/2019 15:58
Tried many products for my mare who had grade 3 ulcers and struggled with loose stools. After she completed her treatment from the vets, I wanted to help her to maintain being ulcer free. So tried ultimate ease and within a few days of being on ultimate ease, I noticed a difference and no more loose watery stools.
Kevin - 08/05/2019 14:29
I haven't started using it yet so don't know if it will help
Trusted Feefo Customer - 27/04/2019 20:42
I have used the product for just over two months and my mare seems to show improvement.
Trusted Feefo Customer - 25/04/2019 08:47
Stops my TB being grumpy and more settled in his work.
Elaine - 17/04/2019 14:26
Vet has looked at ingredients and approved it, hope she likes it as much!
Arran - 10/04/2019 14:32
Early days as I have only just started using it but Gastric comfort did an excellent job and after getting advice from Feedmark this is now more suitable under the circumstances and time of year.

Has everything my horse needs for ultimate gastric comfort

Nutrition Information

Ensuring digestive comfort is important to allow our horses to thrive and perform to the  best of their ability. Ultimate Ease® is a unique blend of ingredients that supports comfortable and efficient digestion by providing complete support from the stomach to the hindgut. The mineral salts Calcium carbonate, Dicalcium phosphate, Magnesium hydroxide and Magnesium carbonate work synergistically with the body to support a healthy gastric pH and soothe the mucosal lining of the stomach and small intestine. Lecithin is highly hydrophobic (water hating) whilst Pectin forms a gel-like substance that binds to bile acids when exposed to an acidic environment (Venner et al., 1999; Ferrucci et al., 2003). When combined, Lecithin and Pectin support the natural protective mucosa of the stomach which is known to become irritated by high concentrate diets, medications, and stress (Lo Feudo et al., 2021; van der Boom, 2022).

Support for the sensitive microbial population in the hindgut is provided by the unique combination of pre-, pro- and postbiotics in Ultimate Ease®. The prebiotics Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) and Mannan oligosaccharide (MOS) provide food sources for beneficial bacteria that are responsible for fermenting fibrous foodstuffs the horse eats. The probiotic YeaSacc® provides a supply of live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) which is an important component of the microbial population, and which stimulates the cellulolytic activity of bacteria within the hindgut, optimising fibre fermentation (Medina et al., 2002). Saccharomyces cerevisiae also promotes activity of bacteria that utilise lactate (Rossi et al., 1995), and so help to stabilise the hindgut. Postbiotics are the next generation of fermentation products and are now included in Ultimate Ease®, strengthening the gastrointestinal support you can provide to your horses.

Postbiotics are defined as “inanimate microorganisms and/or their compounds that confer health benefits to the host” (ISAPP Consensus, 2021). The postbiotic used in Ultimate Ease® includes cell components and metabolites* which have been shown to positively benefit the bacteria within the horse’s gut.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Research has shown increased volatile fatty acid production by horses fed the postbiotic, demonstrating a positive outcome on fibre fermentation, especially of high-fibre forages (Morgan et al., 2007), making it particularly beneficial for horses and ponies fed low calorie, high fibre diets for metabolic or weight management reasons. Bacteria species within the hindgut were also more consistent in horses fed the postbiotic compared to those fed a control diet (Ganda et al., 2022), making it beneficial for keeping the hindgut stable and reducing digestive disturbance. Research has also shown improved immunity in horses fed postbiotics, making the new Ultimate Ease® formulation beneficial for all horses and ponies (Trench et al., 2021).

Further supporting immunity are Kaolin and specialised beta glucans which bind to pathogens**, helping to keep the gut healthy. The amino acid Glutamine also provides an energy source to immune cells ensuring optimal function.

With an aromatic and settling mint aroma, Ultimate Ease® provides a highly palatable unique combination of ingredients suitable for all horses and ponies with additional digestive, gastric and hindgut needs.

Up to 250kg 1 ½ scoops 
250kg - 400kg 2 ½ scoops

Ultimate Ease® should be added immediately prior to feeding, keeping the supplement as dry as possible, otherwise effectiveness may be lost.

Avoid feeding large concentrate meals (pellets, mixes and grains). Instead feed little and often throughout the day, especially concentrate feeds. Always feed at least 1.5% of your horse's body weight per day as fibrous forage (for a 500kg horse feed at least 7.5kg of fibre per day). Horses showing signs of excess acid should have continuous access to forage.


Ultimate Ease® is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight. Introduce to the horse’s diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable). Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.

Shake periodically to avoid settling.
