What is HorseFlex Gastro Support for horses?
Gastro Support is a natural blend of herbs and minerals to support a horse’s stomach and digestive system. For example, the mix contains the mineral calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate has the property of neutralizing stomach acid, thereby contributing to the maintenance of normal acidity. In addition, the supplement has a calming effect on a horse’s stomach.
In addition to calcium carbonate, HorseFlex Gastro Support contains various herbs with a supporting function in the stomach and digestive system of a horse. Chamomile and angelica root have an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effect and a soothing effect on the stomach lining. In addition, Gastro Support for horses contains ginger root, milk thistle, dandelion, peppermint leaf and liquorice. These herbs also support your horse’s stomach and digestion and have a positive effect on the appetite. Finally, the supplement also contains magnesium. This mineral has a relaxing and calming effect on a horse’s stomach.
When to give stomach supplements to horses?
A horse’s stomach is relatively small with a capacity of about 8 to 15 liters. This is why horses can only eat small portions at a time. Naturally, a horse eats small portions spread throughout the day. On average, a horse in nature spends about 16 hours a day chewing roughage (hay and/or grass). A horse’s body is fully adjusted to this, which is also very important for the stomach to function properly. If a horse receives too little roughage or if it has no access to roughage for more than 2 hours, the acidity in the stomach can become unbalanced. A horse’s stomach continuously produces stomach acid to process food. Is there too little food in the stomach? Then too much stomach acid ends up in the stomach. Stomach acid is necessary to digest food and therefore very powerful. An excess of stomach acid can therefore irritate the stomach wall and eventually have serious consequences.
Giving enough roughage is therefore very important for the stomach and digestion of your horse. To support your horse’s stomach extra, an additional supplement can be given. HorseFlex Gastro Support has been specially developed for horses with a sensitive stomach and supports the stomach wall and stomach acidity. Read all about the digestive system of horses in the blog.
