Digestive Health and Hyaluronic Acid Supplement
- Helps soothe the entire digestive tract
- Supports healing of gastrointestinal ulceration
- Promotes joint health
- Hydrates all soft tissue
- Counteracts inflammation and dehydration
GastroFlow helps to soothe the entire digestive system (esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, and the colon), which aids in lessening the discomforts of digestive issues. You can use a quick palpation test to help you determine if your horse has digestive tract sensitivity.
The key ingredients in GastroFlow are Aloe Vera Gel and Hyaluronic Acid. They promote overall digestive health, decrease inflammation, and help to reduce the negative side effects of gastric upset and training stress. Aloe Vera has been scientifically proven to increase the absorption and availability of vitamins and other nutrients. It has also been shown to stabilize blood sugar in human diabetic patients.
Veterinarians who study ulcers say that more than 90% of our horses have and suffer from gastrointestinal ulceration. Some symptoms associated with gastrointestinal distress are ulcers, weight loss, diarrhea, body soreness (especially over the low back/lumbar area), cribbing, sensitivity over the sides (especially over the last rib), and the most common symptom is cinchy or girthy horses. Anxiousness, anger, defensiveness, dead sided, weaving, stall walking, and teeth grinding are also symptoms of reoccuring ulcers.
This supplement was Formulated by a veterinarian to provide a proper equine dose of Hyaluronic Acid which helps to promote overall joint health. This unique formula of 375+ mg per dose may significantly aid in the lubrication and maintenance of healthy cartilage and connective tissue.
Hyaluronic acid is the most hydrophilic substance in the body which means that it is the most water loving. It holds more water than any other natural substance. Bringing extra water to any part of the body supports hydration and lubrication of those areas.
Hyaluronic Acid acts as a cushioning and lubricating agent against mechanical and chemical damage. It plays a vital role in tissue hydration, maintaining and regulating moisture and tissue lubrication. Hyaluronic acid is a major component of normal synovial fluid.
GastroFlow can reduce the need for Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) by decreasing inflammation caused by dehydration and stress. It is formulated to be very bio-available so it will easily cross the digestive tract to be absorbed by the body. When you are feeding GastroFlow, even if you are using it solely for the Digestive health benefits, there is no need to add any other type of Hyaluronic Acid to your horse's diet.
Many horses tested with Horse Hair Analysis consistently show severe nutritional deficiencies and a significant percentage also have at least one toxic metal present in their body. Heavy metals must be chelated from the body for it to regain optimal health. These imbalances have a direct impact on digestive health, attitude, and willingness of your horse to perform its job.
