How does Egusin SLH® work?

The active nutraceuticals in Egusin SLH ® work 5 fold:

  • Phospholipids (lecithin) – maintain and support the hydrophobic lining of the gastric mucosa membranes and epithelia surface working with the natural intestinal defences to provide optimum digestive maintenance..
  • Nutritional fibres – helps to maintain the healthy function of the stomach and the colon.
  • Pectin – supports and maintains the gastric mucosa membranes. Supports the body by helping to bind toxins.
  • Supports intestinal health by helping to maintain a normal pH in the horse’s hind gut, working with the body to sustain correct digestive fermentation and helping support the health of the stomach lining in all horses.
  • Ave-Vita patented whole oats meal with a high content of fibres, has a positive nutritional impact on the intestinal system delaying the stomach emptying which aids in the maintenance of a healthy gastric environment.

Forageplus have found that the protocol for feeding this product is best as feeding for a two week period and re-assessing and either reducing the feed rate to 50% if all behaviours have gone or keeping at the full rate of 50 grams per 100 kg of bodyweight for another 2 weeks.  Do this one more time if only partial or no progress made.

If you have seen no success after 6 weeks then look at muscular/facial issues.

Benefits

The Egusin concept includes 2 types of nutritional feed supplement for horses, ponies and foals to support digestion.  Both products support healthy intestinal balance and the maintenance of epithelial cells in the digestive tract by buffering the effects of excess gastric acid. This concept is based on a unique combination of active neutraceuticals which work with the bodies own defences to support the strength of the stomach lining.

EGUSIN SLH is used as the first nutritional feed supplement when supporting and maintaining the resilience of the horses digestive system.

EGUSIN 250 is used as the second “follow-up-diet” to maintain proper healthy stomach function.

WHAT MAKES EGUSIN® SLH and EGUSIN 250 UNIQUE?

In addition to the unique combination of selected antacids, dietary supplements and fibres, both EGUSIN® products contain micro-milled whole oats (groats).

The nutritional health benefits of oats have been accepted for centuries. Egusin contains a unique micro-milled whole oats meal-which allows the oats to retain a high proportion of valuable nutritional fibres to support healthy intestinal function.

The nutritional fibres in Egusin contain:
· Beta-glucan – gels in the stomach, supporting the natural coating of the stomach lining.
· Insoluble oats fibres – delays the stomach emptying which aids the maintenance of healthy gastric function particularly in horses prone to  gastrointestinal disorders.
· Polar lipids – rich phospholipids that aid the maintenance of a healthy stomach lining.
· Natural antioxidants – to supporting muscle cells from degradation by free radicals.

Feed Rates

Feed 50 grams of Egusin SLH per 100 kg body weight daily for a minimum period of 2 weeks.

A 500 kg horse needs 250 grams daily, divided into the morning and evening feeding.

Maintenance feeding rate: Foals and young horses (4-12 months): Feed 125 grams of Egusin SLH daily, for a minimum period of 2 weeks. Divide into the morning and evening feed.

Horses in training: Feed 250 grams of Egusin SLH daily, for a minimum period of 2 weeks. Divide into the morning and evening feed. Horses which continue to display low levels of the following behaviours, at the two week feeding mark, will benefit from continuing with this nutritional support.

  • Decreased feed intake or complete inappetence of concentrate feed
  • Poor feed efficiency and subsequent weight loss
  • Loss of performance
  • Development of stereotypes such as wood chewing, weaving, and stall walking, reluctance when ridden.

Egusin can be mixed into the bucket feed or mixed into lukewarm water. Add 250 grams of Egusin to 1 litre of water and mix it into soaked feed (beet pellets/high fibre feed).

Egusin can be supplemented in periods when horses are participating in competitions, as the product does not contain any substances prohibited by the FEI or Jockey Club, and there are no undesirable secondary effects.

If feeding for an average 500kg horse this product should last you 20 days.

A 75ml scoop contains approximately 50 grams.

    I would like to thank you for your efficient customer services. My order for Egusin was delivered to me super fast. I am two weeks into using Egusin SLH on a horse which I recently acquired. His owner gave him to me because he was under performing, so decided to retire him. Given his history and symptoms I felt he probably needed digestive support. He was underweight, sour, very food aggressive and extremely reactive to touch. He also had loose smelly droppings, and was stressy. The difference in this horse after two weeks on Egusin is marked. Food aggression 99% gone, touch reactivity 99.9% gone, he has gained weight. His droppings are firmer and don’t smell. He is much happier and no longer sour. His stress levels have dropped markedly. All round he is much happier horse. This has to be one of the first products I have used, that does what it says on the can. Brilliant product highly recommended. Thank you so much from both myself and Chip.

    Only 5 years old and not in a lot of work, my trimmer noticed he did not like to stand still for any length of time whilst being tied up to have his feet trimmed, that he stood there chewing the wooden rail, he was fidgety and constantly needing occupying. I thought that was just his way and was mortified to think I had not noticed he could be uncomfortable in his stomach. I was also shocked to hear this suggestion as he was on a high fibre, very low sugar/starch diet. However, I tried him on Egusin. I noticed a slight change within a few days but the noticeable change came after 4 weeks. By the 5th week, he stood quietly, did not chew the wood and was generally much easier to handle and to be around. I thought he would be fine after being on it for 5 weeks so discontinued feeding but at the same time he went on 2 months box rest which in hindsight was very naive of me. I have now ordered more Egusin to help him get through this as the stress of being on box rest will mean he needs support to maintain a healthy digestive system. Having seen such a difference in his behaviour, I will be keeping him on Egusin 250 as maintenance for many months to come! I totally recommend this product and would strongly recommend a 4/5 week period minimum to see the best results. Good luck!

    I suspected that my horse may need gastric support after attending a Dr Kerry Ridgeway talk organised by Forageplus. She’d become very cinchy to girth up, biting on anything around and refusing to stand still which was unusual behaviour. I decided to support her nutritionally. She improved within 3 days of starting Egusin SLH and is now back to be very happy to tack up, eating better and generally looking much happier. I would definitely recommend this supplement.

    Balou has just started his 3rd tub of Egusin and is maintaining a healthy digestive system.

    It’s great to see him enjoying his food and cleaning up his bowl. In the past he was not eating at all except hay. He would look at his food and turn away. Forageplus suggested using Egusin to naturally support his digestive system. When we started Egusin his desire to eat improved 100% almost overnight. I will certainly be continuing to use Egusin in the future to support and maintain his healthy gut.

    An absolute miracle product
    I swapped my ex racer, Prophet’s Star (Pea), who is now doing dressage, on to Egusin SLH to support and aid his recovery in addition to the Gastroguard which my vet had prescribed. He had behavioural problems: aggressive kicking at the leg under saddle, rearing, running backwards, and biting/tail swishing when groomed or touched along his sides.

    I can honestly say this has been an absolute miracle product for him and I would not be without it in the feed room. He is always going to be a quirky horse but he has completely stopped kicking and running backwards, and is happy to be handled and touched now. Not only is he comfortable, but he looks fantastic, shiny coat, super topline etc, he gleams with health.

    Pea is now competing happily at PSG level, quite an achievement for an ex racehorse, and we are aiming to eventually compete at international GP level. There is no doubt in my mind that Egusin SLH will have helped us get there by maintaining and supporting my horses health. I would not hesitate to recommend this or other Forageplus supplements, to friends or clients.

    So from myself, and Pea …… thank you!

    Thrilled with the results from Egusin SLH and 250

    We have been using Egusin SLH and 250 with our own horses for a while now and have been thrilled with the results. Most of our herd are rescued horses and are all now looking very happy and comfortable with Egusin added to their diet.
