Gastri X Digestive Formula
Soothe - Support - Ph Balance
"Suitable for horses or ponies prone to laminitis"
Daily cost = £1.70 : based on 3 level 50ml scoops/day
A soothing and supportive herbal supplement for horses specifically formulated to maintain a healthy digestive system and Ph balance.
When a horse is competing, working at high levels of fitness, travelling or on high protein diets, it may lose condition, appear " tucked up" or fail to thrive. Now is the time to consider using Gastri X, especially if your horse has either limited access to grazing, turnout or the opportunity to relax and " be a horse", although all healthy horses should have turnout every day. When horses are put under pressure they may well have difficulty in maintaining a healthy and balanced digestive system and gut health.
Please allow at least a month for full benefits to be seen and changes in management may well need to be put in places to avoid re-occurence.
We also recommend using Gastri X in conjunction with your regular worming programme.
GastriX contains soothing herbs such as Slippery Elm, Marshmallow, Cramp bark and Milk Thistle that have all been selected for their ability to support and maintain healthy and effective gut health and function.

How much do I have give?
The amount of herbs you need to give is generally dependent on the height of your horse, with some allowance for type. Full instructions will be found on the packaging but if you have any queries at all please do contact our Helpline 01460 270700 or email email@example.com for more information.
The quantity of herbs added to your horse or pony's feed can be slightly increased or decreased, depending on the circumstances. Very often a lower maintenance quantity can be sufficient for a horse or pony that is going to be kept on the herbs long-term. Remember, like humans, all horses and ponies are individuals.
Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) is one of the herbs included in this formulation. Slippery Elm is made from the inner bark of the Red Elm Tree, and contains a constituent called mucilage. It is one of the principle cooling herbs in the herbal Materia Medica and is used both internally and externally for its excellent properties.
If you mix a small amount of Slippery Elm powder with a little water you will end up with something that looks remarkably like wallpaper paste, imagine how beneficial this consistency is for the digestive system. The beauty of this herb is that it is can be given to the very young and very old, both human and animal.
