The science behind the product

There are many benefits to Equine Zeo as a nutrition supplement, here are a few of those in further detail, how and why this premium product works backed up with scientific research.

 

pH buffering – the proactive and natural approach to ulcers

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.

Performance

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.

Detoxification

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.

Nutrient Uptake

All feed companies will tell consumers that their food contains no mycotoxins as it has been treated.They do their best to rid their feed of the toxin but as Griffiths et al (2017) discussed recently (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/
article/pii/B9780128118351000026), the chemical compounds are stable and will survive many treatments.  You will find them in hay, pasture and your feed as many storage facilities will facilitate the growth, this is why Equine zeo is fantastic for improved nutrient uptake as it will trap and hold the mycotoxins, allowing the necessary nutrients to be absorbed without obstacles.  Greater nutrient uptake will ultimately assist performance as the building blocks for competition, as found in many feeds, will be reached by the required storage units of energy such as the muscles and liver.

Improved net bone formation

Any equine sport places enormous pressure on the musculoskeletal system of the horse. Adding Equine Zeo to the diet can assist in improving net bone formation in young horses and can assist in regeneration in older horses. A piece of research by Lang et al (2001), showed decreased bone resorption which would provide for greater net bone formation, due to the silica element found in Clinoptilolite.

A new research paper has been written about the benefits of feeding performance horses a high quality Zeolite Clinoptilolite such as Equine Zeo. The paper will be published in 2018 and will be uploaded to this site.

  • "Excellent Product – I’ve tried every gastric supplement on the market for my stressy mare and this one really works. It’s the best support for healthy digestion and a fraction of the price of other gastric aids. Finally my horse is calm, happy and healthy – before she was on equine zeo this horse was like sitting on a box of explosives. Now I’m hacking on the buckle and getting calm concentration in the school. Thank you equine zeo!"

  • "Great Product – My horse had a redworm issue in May, causing ulcers and hindgut issues, and diarrhoea, having tried various products, I came across Equine Zeo. He has been on it for 4 weeks now, finally no diarrhoea 👍 and much more comfortable in himself and happy to work again, I wouldn’t be without it. Thanks."
