Menthol, Eucalyptus and Aniseed: Menthol, eucalyptus and aniseed can help keep airways clear of mucus, which can help the horse to breathe more easily and dramatically reduce stress.
Antioxidants: A combination of powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E, Selenium, chelated Copper and Zinc are included to support and maintain a healthy immune system, which maximises the ability to support and aid healthy lung function.
Vitamin C: Healthy horses fed adequate amounts of fibre will have the ability to synthesise their own Vitamin C requirement. However, research suggests that supplementation may be beneficial in times of “stress” or where disease is present when the body’s ability to synthesise Vitamin C may be compromised (Marlin et al, 2005). Recent research work has also identified that this vitamin, as well as being an antioxidant, plays a crucial role in the horse’s respiratory health. Being water soluble, Vitamin C is found in very high concentrations in the fluid lining the airways (Deaton et al, 2002). Vitamin C is also actively involved in the recycling or “re-activation” of Vitamin E. It is also involved in general metabolism, iron absorption and anti-stress hormones.
