The horse’s respiratory system is challenged on a daily basis, from fungal spores, dust, pollen and other tiny particles in their immediate environment, whether from dust in hay and bedding when they are stabled, or when out at pasture, from dust and pollen. When working and competing, the lungs need to work harder, to provide increased levels of oxygen for energy production, and this can further exacerbate the health and performance of their respiratory system from environmental challenges.
Most horses cope with these challenges, but there are occasions when a healthy respiratory system is overwhelmed by these tiny particles, which can irritate the sensitive lining or mucosa of the respiratory tract, including the lungs, and horses may start to show signs that their respiratory system is not working as efficiently as it should.
Targeted nutritional support can help support the horse’s natural defences against such challenges, and Ventilator Powder contains a powerful blend of natural herbs and phytochemicals (active compounds from plants), known for their role in lung health and maintaining respiratory function. Ventilator Powder also contains Echinacea and MSM to help support the immune system.
(If you are concerned about your horse’s respiratory health, please contact your veterinary surgeon as well as considering nutritional support)
What are the benefits of Ventilator Powder?
Eucalyptus oil is recognized for its ability to help clear the respiratory tract of a build-up of mucus caused by exposure to dust, fungal spores, pollen and other small particulate matter.
Peppermint and its active ingredient Menthol, have been used for centuries to help open the airways and clear excess mucus. Many of the natural compounds found in peppermint oil will provide nutritional support to help the horse’s own respiratory defences.
Nettle, Fenugreek and Astragalus are all thought to help support the respiratory system and lung health, providing high levels of antioxidant support .
Garlic and MSM help support a the horse’s own anti-inflammatory response, and maintain healthy airways.
Glycerine helps to soothe the airways.
Echinacea and Apple Cider Vinegar help to support the immune system.
Kelp and seaweed provide a natural source of many key micronutrients to support general health and wellbeing.
