Immune Support for Horses from Forageplus


The health of the immune system is dependent upon having the basic raw materials it needs to function – nutrients.

Hydration, calories, protein/amino acids, fatty acids, vitamin and mineral status all influence immune function. These are the fuels and also regulate and orchestrate right down to the level of DNA.

This basic nutrition matched to the grass, hay or haylage the horse eats must be the first part tackled to develop and maintain a robust and resilient immune sustem. There is nothing that will substitute for inadequate levels of a basic nutrient. Their jobs in signaling between cells, forming antibodies and cytokines, and protecting the immune system cannot be bypassed by any herb, isolated other nutrients, drug or vaccines. Nutrition must come first.

When looking to support your horse then, consider first the basic diet and then move on to adding in extras.  In our experience when you match to the grass, hay or haylage eaten you will be entering into the realm of covering the basics.  Cover the basics and then a whole load of issues seem to resolve.
