UnbeLEAFable herbs to help with your horse's stress levels! 🌿
🌿 The cause of your horses’ nervousness can be as simple as a slight imbalance in the function of the nervous system. Herbs, and the correct mixture of them, can be a valuable addition to your horse’s diet, more often than not bringing about a long-term solution to the problem.
Let’s hone in on the Herbal ingredients …
- Chicory Extract
A herbal remedy for many anxious horses.
Chicory Extract contains high inulin (a carbohydrate fibre known as an oligosaccharide or prebiotic) which aids gut health and the growth of good bacteria, which in turn promotes digestive comfort. Gut imbalances often lead to anxiousness and are often linked with bad behaviour.
Is your horse nervous, twitchy, jumpy, fidgety, can’t stand still, overly sensitive. Have they been seen to (though not always) Crib-bite, Wind-suck or Weave?
Vervian is the super herb for your horse, helping to restore the balance of the nervous system! Your horse can feel soothed and relaxed, as Vervian stimulates the release of dopamine and serotonin, enhancing mood and well-being. It also helps to improve digestive function by increasing saliva production, creating a more alkaline environment in the hind-gut. It is an especially good herb to use if your horse’s digestive issues are stress related, as it stimulates appetite by relaxing stomach tension. Vervain also functions as a diuretic in the body, assisting with the flushing out of unwanted toxins.
Is your horse the internal worrier? Are they upset easily, resulting in diarrhoea and a “squitty bum”? Are they known to lose weight more easily than most in stressful situations, and/or display a dull coat?
Chamomile helps to restore the correct function of the digestive system, which for this horse is where they direct their stress. Chamomile tea has been used for thousands of years to promote calm, it’s very useful for minor digestive problems such as indigestion, wind and bloating.
