The gut booster for all animals of all ages

Building gut resistance

Humigut consists of humic acids, these humic acids were formed through “humification” during the degradation process of biological material. Humic acids are therefore part of the natural diet of wild living animals. Providing animals with Humigut will contribute to improved intestinal health and function.
