Gastri X Digestive Formula
Helps maintain optimum digestive health - naturally!
"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 gain condition. On these occasions consider using Gastri X especially if your horse has limited turnout or access to pasture or generally has little opportunity to relax and 'be a horse'. Ideally all healthy horses should have some 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.

Ingredients: Human-grade Slippery Elm, Marshmallow root, Meadowsweet herb, Cramp Bark stem bark, Milk Thistle seed, Liquorice root, Gotu Kola leaf.
Our herbal supplements are added to the feed on a daily basis, if possible splitting the required amount between two feeds. Our liquid supplements could be given direct into the mouth (by way of a syringe) which can be useful if no feed is given during the Summer months. Full instructions will be found on the packaging or in our VIDEO GUIDE but if you have any queries please do contact our Helpline for more information. The quantity of product added to your horse or pony's feed can be slightly increased or decreased, depending on the circumstances as, like humans, all horses & ponies are individuals. Very often a lower maintenance amount, will be sufficient for a horse or pony that is going to be kept on the herbs long-term.

Up to 12.2hh : 1 scoop daily
12.2hh to 14.2hh: 2 scoops daily

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.
