Gastrointestinal support after Retroflam TM for preventative maintenance for horses at risk of reoccurrence of stomach, glandular and hindgut dis-ease.

 

Lecithin is a phospholipid and choline compound (phosphatidylcholine) which prevents acid from affecting the lining of the stomach and hindgut, by binding to the gastrointestinal mucous membrane, to repel acids. This helps to reduce erosion of the epithelial layer of the gastrointestinal tract. Phospholipid supplementation promotes an environment that supports healing of membrane damage, while protecting the stomach from further acidic splash. Lecithin also stimulates mucous production in the lining of the GI tract which also helps protect it. The choline component of lecithin also helps support healthy nervous system function. Lecithin supplementation has been shown in clinicals trials to heal and reduce the incidence of stomach ulcer in horses. **

 

Calcareous Marine Algae (Lithothamnion) is a highly bio-available organic source of Calcium from marine algae which buffers/neutralises acid in the stomach and hindgut, which assists in the prevention and healing of erosion of the gastrointestinal lining. Marine Calcium assists in maintaining and promoting healthy digestive function and optimising absorption of essential nutrients. Calcareous marine algae also provide a range of other essential minerals such as Magnesium and trace minerals important for digestive function, metabolic processes, nervous system function and general health. Lithothamnion source Calcium has been shown in clinical scientific studies to increase by two-fold the acid buffering capacity* in horses’ stomachs and to heal gastric ulcers in 70%* of horses studied. It has also been shown to increase hindgut acid buffering by 54%* and to be more effective and longer acting as a hindgut acidosis buffer and to be more bioavailable than calcium in the form of inorganic calcium carbonate.
