What is EQuine Immunity Booster?

EQuine Immunity Booster is a loose herbal blend and can be added to horse feed daily – quick and easy with no fuss.
Why is the immune system so important?
The three key influencing factors on a horse’s immune system are psychological calm, nutrition, and age. Certain activities (such as strength in a performance or a race) and outside influences can contribute to added pressure on the immune system.
Horse breeders, trainers and racers often times find themselves confronting challenges when it comes to the health of their horses. Traveling to shows can place a horse under strain. Likewise, contact with other horses can also lead to risks for the immune system. Most riders will tell you that they have an intrinsic ability to know how well their horses are performing. Responsible horse owners know that a strong immune system is the best ally for improving performance, and the best line of defense! Equine immune support can be a frustrating process as horses have specialized needs.
The natural way
Nutrition is by far the most important when it comes to the task of supporting the equine immune system. Horses need different levels of feed and nutrition in their diet depending on age, current weight, activity level and overall health. An active horse’s diet should be a delicate balance of the right proteins, grains, hay, minerals, vitamins, supplements, water intake and the proper digestions of these substances. Food and dry feed should be high in quality and portion control should be adhered to.

- Extract of Nettle (stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) and/or dwarf nettle (Urtica urens)) contains more than 100 natural chemical components that have been identified in the hairs, roots, leaves and rhizomes. This herb supports the immune system and has also been shown to support joint health. (Randall, C., Meethan, K., Randall, H., and Dobbs, F.

“I am employed at stables during the holidays. We regularly give all the horses EQuine Immunity Booster. They are florishing!”
“Hello Native Remedies. I am writing to you to tell you about my Bay, Cinnamon. She was not in a good state when she arrived to us. She did not enjoy the transportation and she was run down from the ordeal. I was worried about her immune system taking a knock, so I mixed EQuine Immunity Booster with her food. She is full of energy and looks much better. Thank you for all your help!”
