RespirAid DHA - Horse Respiratory Supplement
NEW and IMPROVED formulation of our original RespirAid. Now containing a unique form of DHA plus Natural Vitamin E and still the same great price.
What? Research shows that supplementing the horses diet with anti-oxidants aids the respiratory system and provides valuable support. In addition, new research has now shown that a marine source of DHA is highly beneficial to long term respiratory health.
In a recent study of 37 horses with compromised respiratory function, feeding RespirAid showed positive benefits in just 7-14 days. RespirAid DHA also includes Vitamin C as Ascorbyl Monophosphate. This is the form of Vitamin C that is highly absorbed in horses, unlike Ascorbic Acid whi is commonly used in supplements but very poorlly absorbed by horses.
RespirAid DHA combines both these groups of ingredients to provide the ultimate support for horses with sensitive airways.
Why? Respiratory stress is common for today's horses. Environmental factors such as stabling conditions, bedding, quality of ventilation, stress, travelling, mixing with other horses and many other contributing elements can all harbour dust and fungal spores which accumulate in and irritate the sensitive lining of the lungs and respiratory tract.
When? RespirAid should be fed on a daily basis to help support a healthy respiratory system. It is also ideal for horses and ponies that are stabled for long periods of time with restricted turnout, or exposed to stressful situations i.e travelling, competition, change of yard or a change in hay and feed.
