Ingredients

Ficus glomerata extract - Studies using an extract of Ficus glomerata have been shown to support the stomach lining, promote a healthy gastric environment and help control acidity.

Apple Pectin & Lecithin - Pectin-lecithin complexes have been studied in horses and support the total mucus concentration in gastric juice (Koller et al. 2010). Mucus helps protect the stomach lining from acid.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae - Yeast cells are high in a small protein called thioredoxin, which has been proven to support the gastric lining.

MgOH - Magnesium hydroxide when used in combination with a pectin-lecithin formulation and Saccharomyces cerevisiae can support a healthy stomach.

Alfalfa - Alfalfa has buffering capacity which means it can help maintain the stomach walls.

Vitamin C – Alongside Vitamin E, Vitamin C is the other major anti-oxidant. The antioxidant Vitamin C has also been shown to support the gastric lining whilst not interfering with the positive effects of omeprazole (Kohler et al. 2010) therefore ideal for use alongside veterinary treatment.

Vitamin E – Vitamin E has been shown to aid the natural process of reduction of stomach acidity, acid production and gastric acid volume (Cuevas et al, 2011; Huilgol et al. 2014). Vitamin E in high feeding rates has significant anti-oxidative action.

Selenium - Selenium is an important co-factor the effective function of antioxidant enzymes and Vitamins such as Vitamin E.
