Equine Zeo is a natural product that provides all-round daily support for the horse and improves digestion and gut health.
Equine Zeo is a natural product that provides all-round daily support for the horse, promotes detoxification, and supports normal PH levels and gut health.
Research has shown that adding a high in purity Clinoptilolite to the equine diet can support the natural removal of heavy metals and mycotoxins whilst improving digestion and gut health. Equine Zeo will assist the performance or leisure horse and will also assist the musculoskeletal system with elements of natural silica found in Clinoptilolite.
A main characteristic of Clinoptilolite is its high pH level. Its pH level ranges from 7.0-8.0 which makes it alkaline and similar to the healthy blood pH level of 7.4.2–7.45. Therefore it is suggested that Zeolite can assist in balancing a healthy acid-base homeostasis in the body. Due to the nature of feeding, such as a high in concentrate diet, the horses stomach is extremely acidic and any help to increase the alkalinity would improve the welfare of the horse.
A research paper written by J Reynolds discussed how a diet including Clinoptilolite showed packed cell volume (PCV) and heart rate (HR) during prolonged exercise did not rise, against a diet containing no clinoptilolite. With this in mind, maintaining HR as exercise intensifies will delay the onset of fatigue through a slower build up of lactate. Link this with improved nutrient uptake and you can see how this product would benefit the performance horse.
Clinoptilolite is known as the molecular sieve as it traps and removes harmful everyday toxins as well as residual toxins that may be lingering in the body from medication. Daily detoxification is a great support to the horse and increases the performance of all bodily functions, especially the immune system.
