Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides
- Hydrolyzed Collagen-fed horses had fewer and less severe ulcers throughout the trial and significantly fewer ulcers were seen after 56 days of feeding.
- Hydrolyzed Collagen lowered the severity of gastric ulcers in stall-confined horses undergoing stall confinement and feed stress. (1)
Slippery Elm Bark
Contains high amounts of mucilage that adheres to the gastrointestinal tract, soothing and coats injured and inflamed tissues, helping them to heal and reducing the likelihood of scarring, as well as drawing out toxins and irritants.
Gelatin’s short peptides – glyprolines – consist of amino acids of glycine and proline. It is them that protect the stomach mucous tunic from injuries. Glyprolines are easily absorbed in the stomach and remain in the blood for a long time without breaking up. They act not only on the stomach cells but also on the central nervous system overcoming the blood-brain barrier, therefore they help prevent the ulcers caused by stress.
Turmeric in research showed suppression of the formation of stomach ulcers when fed daily to horses. (1)
