Jiaogulan works with the bodies natural anti-inflammatory pathways supporting the production of endogenous nitric oxide from vascular endothelium.  This means that this herb is useful to support circulation in the hooves of horses, particularly in the sensitive laminae. 

It is also useful when combined with AAKG to support healthy hoof circulation and excellent AVA shunt activity in cold temperatures. AVA shunts are found in the sensitive laminae and are essential for hoof laminae health and good circulation.

Jiaogulan should not be used in horses who have active inflammation. Active inflammation refers to the first few days of tendon and ligament injuries or when a horse is newly diagnosed with a lamintic event and still has bounding pulses. Jiaogulan is generally considered safe for use during chronic inflammation, where the inflammation persists for an extended period and is not in an acute stage.

    Brilliant herb. Along with management change ( to Track / Paddock Paradise active lifestyle) helped my EMS horses. I mixed with a little psyllium bran I made small “treats”.

  2. Marianne Caffrey (verified owner)

    Brilliant product for my EMS ponies, works well to improve circulation during the winter.

  3. Carrie Place (verified owner)

    This has been so helpful with pain management for problem hooves with sinkage & rotation while helping with abscess issues. Particularly this winter I’ve used it to maintain blood flow through blood capillaries in the feet. As well as support for respiratory function, following issues caused by dusty hay. It is a great product with many therapeutic actions for my pony & donkey.

  4. Sarah Storer (verified owner)

    Really happy with this product, just opened the second bag, used along side aakg.
    Fingers crossed I notice a different.

  5. Katie Adamson (verified owner)

    I used this with spirulina last year for my horse that has equine asthma. It did seem to help. Will be doing again this spring.

  6. Carole York (verified owner)

    Marvellous stuff. I started using this on my pony with. After a week he started mobilising unresolved issues and after 3 weeks he is making great progress.

  7. Carrie Place

    I’ve been using this for over two months now & notice a difference in my donkey. Her feet are growing well, helping with healthy hoof growth. I’m hoping internally with the correct diet & trim, her foot structure is getting a good supply to improve strength & healing. She certainly gives the impression with confident steps using her hoof well. It also helps her mood I think.

  8. Kelly Elliott

    I’ve used this for a mare that coughs and can’t stand being stabled. It’s significantly reduced her coughing and she is much happier in the stable.

  9. Kelly Elliott (verified owner)

    I’ve used this for a mare needing lung support and can’t stand being stabled. She is much happier in the stable.

  10. hrbacchini (verified owner)

    Quality product, I have used for delivering nitric oxide for rehabbing injuries and hoof growth, used for coughing as well.

  11. Kate B (verified owner)

    My horse loves this and eats it straight out of my hand. I got it to support his navicular bone and the sesamoids and collateral ligaments. He has been taking this, and AAKG, for a couple of months now and is feeling better than he has for a long time.

  12. hrbacchini (verified owner)

    Quality product, I have used for delivering nitric oxide for supporting vital hoof ligaments and hoof growth, used for great lung health as well.

  13. Mariablumenthal (verified owner)

    I got this for two purposes
    One is in Conjunction with MSM and spirulina for my mare’s lungs in relation to dusty hay and it works great to strengthen her.
    Second is for my IR gelding to support blood flow to his feet, again it works beautifully

  14. Vroni (verified owner)

    I got this to manage joint health in the horse, alongside other things. At the beginning I didn’t notice any difference, but with constant use it seemed to me that the movements were more fluid and the horse more comfortable. I cannot swear this is what made a difference, but it convinced me enough to order it again. Worth a try, also because it seems to have many benefits.
