Indication for use
Every equestrian appreciates the delicate nature of the equine gut. Problems related to the small intestine and large intestine are well understood and routinely treated. What may be surprising is how often the stomach is affected.  The incidence of gastric ulcers is extremely high, particularly in performance horses. Different studies (post mortem and gastro endoscopic studies) show that 75-89% of horses in active training suffer from gastric ulcers. The major cause of gastric ulcers is prolonged exposure of the squamous mucus to gastric acid. The only protection that the horse's stomach has against gastric acid and pepsin comes from saliva production. Meals of grain or extended periods of fasting lead to excess gastric acid output without adequate saliva production. Intense exercise increases the production of gastric acid even more in a way that the squamous mucosa of the stomach gets thoroughly bathed in acid. Horses with gastric ulcers may show symptoms like a drop in performance; sour attitude; poor hair coat; grinding teeth; picky eater; weight loss, etc. Treatment of ulcers involves either inhibiting gastric acid secretion, neutralizing the acid produced or protecting the squamous mucus from exposure to acid. Cavalor Gastro 8 provides the nutritional tools to neutralize acid production and stimulates regeneration. It also protects the stomach mucus on different levels using different nutritional approaches (as Cavalor products do).

Composition of the product 
Cavalor Gastro 8 contains nucleotides, bioflavonoids, herbs and vitamin U.
