500g Organic Aloe Vera Powder
Whole Leaf Powder
The aloe vera plant has been reported to be effective in the prevention and treatment of gastric ulcers in human and in animals in experimental models. Its anti-ulcer properties have been attributed to a variety of possible mechanisms, including anti-oxidant activity, anti-inflammatory properties, cytoprotective and mucus-stimulatory effects, and its ability to regulate gastric acid production.
I personally have been feeding my horses 2g (half teaspoon) of Aloe Vera Powder (added to the soaking water with SpeediBeet twice a day) for some time. I recently had 2 horses scoped, both have been through stress, 1 was scoped perfectly clear. The other who had a major injury, and was stabled for 4 months had very minor signs of ulcers (bumps on the lining, but no ulceration) I discussed feeding with the vet scoping and said they were fed Aloe Vera, his thoughts was this had prevented the Ulcers from progressing and provided protection while under stress. This is by no means a guarantee of anything, just my own personal experience.
Aloe Vera can be added directly to your horse’s feed (dry powder or mixed) or syringed over the tongue. Twice daily feeding is recommended.
