The horse has a small stomach that is designed for continuous grazing. In order to maintain gastric health it is therefore important that it is frequently fed smaller meals. Digestion begins in the stomach where the feed is broken down by gastric acid and enzymes. When the horse chews, it produces saliva containing bicarbonate which is vital to regions of the horse’s stomach.

Magnesium phosphate is especially useful for curbing gastric health.
Calcium carbonate and Magnesium Phosphate work well together and are important for controlling nerve to muscle impulses.
Niacin (B3) is important for cell respiration. It helps to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins; and it promotes normal function of bile and stomach fluids. Niacin is known to have a healthy effect on the nervous system and to produce an anti inflammatory effect. It is absorbed through the stomach and small intestine.
Pyridoxine (B6) boosts the bodys protective system. It is necessary for the normal breakdown or metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, and fats. It is essential for the production of red blood cells and for proper absorption of B-12.
