What’s inside?
Ficus glomerata extract - Ficus glomerata or Cluster Fig is an evergreen or deciduous tree and found all over India and Southeast Asia. Traditionally in Asian countries compounds in the fruit are extremely high in natural phenolics, flavonoids, phytosterols and terpenoids and have high antioxidant capacity (Eshwarappa et al. 2015). 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. A study in horses demonstrated that the combination of magnesium hydroxide, a pectin-lecithin complex and Saccharomyces cerevisiae can support a healthy stomach.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae – Yeast cells are high in a small protein called thioredoxin. Thioredoxin is found in all mammal cells and is a powerful antioxidant. Recent studies have shown that oral administration of thioredoxin support the gastric lining (mucosa).

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. Studies have shown that alfalfa when used for this purpose has a greater effect compared with horses fed Bermuda grass hay. Alfalfa also has an important role in ensuring palatability, keep the active ingredients evenly distributed throughout the supplement so that settling does not occur and keeping the moisture content of the supplement as low as possible which ensures the active ingredients are persevered in shipping and storage.

Vitamin C – Alongside Vitamin E, Vitamin C is the other major anti-oxidant. Vitamin C capacity also declines with age. Vitamin C has been shown to have a major role in supporting a healthy gastric environment. 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.
