Feedmark MeadowBlend Chastetree Berries (Equine)
To support normal hormone levels and responses.
Chastetree berry is a powerful ingredient to support horses with hormonal challenges. The ideal herb for older, curly-coated horses needing pituitary support. Chastetree berry also supports settled and good behaviour in mares and 'riggy' geldings.
Chastetree Berry (Agnus-Castus) is also known as Monk’s Pepper and was first recorded as being used by Hippocrates in the 4th century AD. Chastetree Berries have long been fed to horses and ponies to support hormonal challenges, and to older horses that require pituitary support.
