EquiSHIELD is an immune boosting supplement for horses, formulated to assist the horse’s immune system in preventing and combatting poor health.
It is added to the horse’s diet in times of stress (travel, intense exercise, recovery from illness) where the immune system may be compromised and more susceptible to poor health, in vaccination periods where vaccines contain live viruses, or to better equip the horse’s physical response to viruses and diseases.
EquiSHIELD contains key components Vitamin E, Lysine, Methionine, Beta Glucan, Fulvic Acid and Selenium.
Vitamin E plays a role in immune response, neuromuscular function and is a biological antioxidant. Together with Selenium, the combination provides essential protection to body tissue against oxidation-induced damage, maintains normal muscle function and is a preventative aid against muscular disease.
Fulvic Acid is a humic acid, a natural and organic electrolyte. It has many benefits to equines including improvement to gut health, immune function, detoxification ability, inflammation management, and coat health.
Beta Glucan is a powerful, positive immune system stimulant with multiple benefits. In equines, it has shown to moderate and improve digestion, improve nutrient absorption, and stimulate the activity of macrophages (pathogen fighting immune cells).
Lysine and Methionine are essential amino acids that boost the horse’s immune system and improve overall health. Among many benefits, they improve protein quality and availability, hoof and coat health, support a healthy nervous system, and aid collagen formation and repair processes.
