LSU profess puts sea buckthorn, an all natural, wholefood supplement to the test against Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) and gets impressive results.

Many factors like exercise, type of feed, stress levels, and a constant use of medications are a common cause for stomach ulcers in horses. A few signs of EGUS to watch out for are poor appetite, weight loss, and a dull coat.

Travel, competition and stall confinement can also contribute to the development of ulcers. With an estimated 60-90% of adult horses suffering from EGUS, competition horses can be the highest at risk.

Statistics this high demand an effective and reliable solution.

Frank Andrews, professor and Chief of Staff at LSU School of Veterinary Medicine conducted a study with two groups of horses feeding them the same quantity and type of feed. The only difference being one group received a 4 oz. serving of SeaBuck GastroPlus (SeaBuck 7 Equine) with each meal, while the other did not.

After 35 days of study, Andrews concluded that sea buckthorn can heal parts of the stomach and aid in ulcer treatment just as well as prescribed medication.
