PSYLLIUM

Psyllium is high in fibre and mucilage and when combined with water it swells to many times its original size, becoming slimy and gelatinous. Diarrhoea is inhibited via the absorption of excess moisture and bulking up of faeces, and constipation is alleviated by the softening of stool and the promotion of bowel movement by the extra volume.

For horses, psyllium husk’s ability to pick up sand and move it through the gut is particularly valuable in the prevention and/or treatment of sand colic. Periodic addition of psyllium to the feed is practised in some sandy soil areas.

RASPBERRY

Raspberry gives tone to the uterus, so it is very beneficial for a mare  that is having difficulty falling pregnant and also assists the recovery of the uterus  and encourages milk production.  Raspberry also addresses diarrhea and upper  respiratory tract discomfort or inflammation..

ROSEHIPS

Rosehips are extremely high in Vitamin C as well as containing many other vitamins – one of which is Vitamin E.  The Vitamin C in Rosehips acts as a natural antihistamine, which can assist the allergy-prone horse.  They have a high mineral content including Copper and Cobalt.  They can be used as a general tonic and may be fed on a daily basis.  They are particularly useful after any stress, illness or injury and are beneficial for the health of the lungs.  They also contain Biotin for strong, healthy hoof growth.  Rosehips are a circulatory herb and an immune system booster.  Rosehips can also help alleviate gastric inflammation and scouring.

SEAWEED

Seaweed is a natural way of providing most of the minerals, vitamins and trace elements that may be missing in the diet and therefore ensures horses maintain peak condition.  When seaweed is added to the feed, it enables horses to extract and absorb every bit of protein and nutrition from their diet.

SHARK CARTILAGE / CHONDROITIN

Shark Cartilage offers hope and promise in reducing the symptoms associated with chronic inflammation of bone, joints, connective tissues, and other conditions.  The benefits are reduction of pain and enhancement of mobility, along with decreases in joint and tendon swelling, improved general mobility and performance, improvement in skin and coat condition and increased rate of hoof growth.

SLIPPERY ELM

Slippery Elm is used primarily to soothe the lining of the digestive tract and regulate intestinal flora.  It also helps to treat scours and the older or debilitated horse will benefit from the bark’s nutritional value.

As Slippery Elm is so mucilaginous, it is best fed at a different time than other medication/supps so as not to interfere with absorption.  Feed a few hours apart from other supplements.

SOYBEAN MEAL

With the addition of Soybean Meal to your horses diet, you are assisting the liver, appetite, weight gain, digestion and nervous system.  Soybean Meal is beneficial for all horses including younger, older and breeding horses along with those recovering from a debilitating injury or illness.
