Gastro Gold

Gastro Gold maintains gastric health.

Gastro Gold is a natural feed ingredient to help maintain gastric health in intensively managed horses at risk of gastric ulcers.

Gastric ulcers are a significant issue for many types of horses including racing and performance horses, mares at stud, foals and leisure horses.  Gastric ulcers are lesions that develop in the lining of the stomach or gastric mucosa.

The development of ulcers occur when the inherent mucosal protective mechanisms (mucous and bicarbonate secretion, increased blood flow and cell turnover) are overwhelmed by the aggressive action of gastric acid and other protein digesting enzymes.  

There are many clinical signs indicating the presence of an ulcer (some include colic, irregularity of appetite, unenthusiastic at work) but a majority of ulcerous episodes remain silent.

Gastro Gold:

1.    Assists in inhibiting gastric acid production 
2.    Maintains the integrity of the digestive tract 
3.    Reduces irritation to the mucosa
4.    Stimulates cellular regeneration of the gastric epithelium
5.    Decreases inflammation 
6.    Provides a buffering effect on stomach acid
