Lecithin is derived from soy and is a naturally occurring group of phospholipids that’s found in nearly every living cell.

Research has shown that Lecithin may assist in treating equine gastric ulcers, owing this benefit to its phospholipid content. 

Phospholipids are made up of two fatty acids that are attached to a glycerol “head”. The glycerol head region of the molecule attracts water (known as hydrophilic) and the fatty tail acid end repels water (hydrophobic). The hydrophilic (water loving) head attaches to the stomach lining, leaving the hydrophobic end (water repelling) exposed to the lumen of the stomach. This arrangement helps form a barrier between the stomach wall and the gastric contents and helps to repel water loving substances such as gastric acid away from the stomach wall, thereby providing protection to the sensitive mucosa. 

In addition to offering gastrointestinal protection, Lecithin is recognised for boosting the health of all cell membranes, including those of skin, hair, and hooves.

Benefits

  • Assisting with treatment of Equine Gastric Ulcers 
  • Helps stabilise natural phospholipid layer of a horse’s stomach 
  • Improving coat, skin and hoof health
  • Contains Omega 3 & Omega 6 fatty acids 
  • Helps make the stomach lining stronger at the cellular membrane level which may contribute to the healing of ulcers 
  • Enhances the digestive tract
  • May be used with Bute to protect the stomach 

When pain relief is necessary and you rely on an NSAID such as bute, protect your horse’s digestive tract by replacing what bute diminishes - phospholipids found in the epithelial layer of the digestive tract. Phospholipids act as a barrier to acid damage. Lecithin (phospahatidyl choline) is a naturally occurring phospholipid that can be easily supplemented to help protect your horse against ulcers.

Dosage

100g per day/500kg horse

100g = 1 cup approx. 

We highly recommend feeding Lecithin in conjunction with Aloe Vera for assisting in the treatment of ulcers.

This product may vary between a fine powder and granules. Please note, both variations are the exact same product with the exact same nutritional benefits. 

May be of benefit for improving or promoting health or production or performance. Consult your vet before treating any illness.
