Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax

The immediate solution for acute stress to your horse's stomach.

Transport situations, tournaments, training on new courses and the like can put a lot of stress on your horse's stomach.

Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax can help your horse to cope with the stress.

If stressful situations, in which increased stomach acid is produced, are imminent, the horse is given a dose of Equine 74 Calm Relax 10 to 30 minutes beforehand.

The positive effect can be felt within a few minutes and lasts as long as the paste remains in the stomach. This is about 4 hours.

How does Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax work?

Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax reduces the contact of the sensitive glandless part of the stomach with gastric acid, which horses produce more under stress.

The alginate of the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum (Fucaceae family) forms a gel layer in the horse's stomach, which covers its stomach contents.

Contraction of the stomach and movements of the horse allow the aggressive gastric acid to reach the sensitive gastric mucosa in the upper, glandless part of the horse's stomach. This causes gastric mucosal irritation and pain.

Upon contact with gastric acid, the naturally occurring alginate of Ascophyllum nodosum (Fucaceae family) mixes with it to form a gel-like substance, thus forming a gel layer that coats the stomach contents like a protective film, thereby preventing the acid from reaching the glandless part of the stomach and damaging the mucosa there.

After about four hours, this protective film dissolves and is excreted directly through the intestines without being absorbed into the bloodstream.

Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax provides natural magnesium with highest bioavailability for calming.

Each syringe also contains about 1.8 grams of magnesium. Magnesium has been shown to calm the nerves** and is therefore ideal for calming and relaxing horses in stressful situations.

A large horse needs about 20 grams daily – an amount normally covered by feed intake.

Due to the rapid decomposition process of the paste and the extremely high bioavailability of 98%, the magnesium acts extremely quickly.

Additionally recommended: The acid-buffering effect* of Equine 74 Gastric for lasting relief.

Equine 74 Gastric also has a marine origin. It is obtained from a special species of red algae (Lithotamnium calcareum), which comes from the seabed off the coast of Iceland. It is then gently dried in Ireland and processed in Germany.

Equine 74 Gastric absorbs excess stomach acid, helping to maintain a constant pH in the horse's stomach.

Is Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax recommended for all horses?

Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax is drug and doping free - tested in the official FEI anti-doping laboratory in Germany - and can be given to any horse, whether sport or leisure horse, foal or pony.

Equine 74 Stomach Calm Relax is particularly suitable for generally nervous horses and horses that are prone to stress, have a sensitive stomach or irritated mucous membranes and/or are sensitive to new, unfamiliar or stressful situations. Stressful situations mean increased production of stomach acid for horses, which attacks the stomach lining. Such situations include competitions, trailer rides, changes in the herd, breaking in young horses or weaning foals.

The paste is sugar-free and very tasty due to the addition of vanilla and is gladly taken by all horses without exception. Depending on the outside temperature, the paste is sometimes a little more solid or liquid, but always easy to administer. We recommend warming the paste briefly in your hands before application on cold days.

Each syringe contains approximately 1.8 grams of magnesium. Magnesium has been shown to calm the nerves*, making it ideal for calming and relaxing horses in stressful situations. A large horse needs about 20 grams daily - an amount normally covered by feed intake. Due to the rapid decomposition process of the paste and the extremely high bioavailability of 98%, the magnesium acts extremely quickly.
