NEW formula for Excel equine ulcer supplement

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

One of our best selling products, Excel, recently had a new addition to its formula…Peppermint Leaf!

Excel is a natural ulcer preventative which coats and soothes the digestive tract.  Studies show that nearly 90% of stalled horses suffer from gastrointestinal ulceration.  Symptoms to watch for include weight loss, diarrhea, cribbing, and sensitivity when tightening the cinch or girth.  Excel is the best way to treat intermittent colic episodes and decreased performance due to ulcer pain.  The ingredients in Excel lessen the discomforts of digestive issues and ulcers.

Aloe Vera powder coasts the lining of the digestive tract and reduces pain and inflammation of ulcers and colitis.  It increases absorption of needed nutrients from food and helps with regularity.

Marshmallow root has the ability to fight infection and boost the immune system.  Slippery Elm Bark helps regulate bacteria in the intestine and increases good gut flora.

Both Marshmallow Root and Slippery Elm Bark resist breakdown from stomach acids and enzymes thereby maintaining a soothing action throughout the entire digestive tract.

Zorien© MOS, a pre-biotic , enhances immune function, regulates bowel PH and decreases inflammatory bowel disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS).

Brewers Yeast is a great source of B vitamins and acts as a pre-biotic to re-inoculate the gut with normal bacteria.  A great source of fiber is Psyllium Husk Powder included to improve and maintain regular GI track function.

Ginger Root Powder and Peppermint Leaf are commonly used as anti-diarrhea and nausea treatments.  The dried peppermint leaf also makes the supplement more palatable for the horse as the strong minty taste and smell are very appealing.

Excel™promotes healthy digestion throughout the entire digestive tract including the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines and the colon.  This supplement is effective for ulcers, colitis, diarrhea and other types of digestive discomfort.

Unlike most other daily preventative ulcer supplements, Excel™ may be used long term without the possible build up of toxic levels of minerals.

    I purchased Excel for my 6 year old Oldenburg gelding . We tried switching gradually from Succeed- during the switch he developed a gas colic so we stopped Excel. and went back to Succeed. In the 2 years I have owned him -he seems to have a sensitive gut- and he is a cribber. Behaviorally he gets irritated easily when his stomach is upset. Just recently tried to switch him from succeed to supplement with prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes glucosamine/ chondritin and we again developed a ‘gas colic’

    • Hi Bonita,
      I will forward your message to Dr. DePaolo and see if he has any input for you.

    • Hi Bonnie,

      I spoke with Dr. DePaolo and he recommends putting your horse on the new supplement along with the Succeed until the new stuff can take effect (at least 2-3 weeks) then slowly taper off of the Succeed. He thinks your horse is probably colicking because it is coming off Succeed before the new supplement is “up and running” completely! If this is what you tried then I would consult a nutritionist or vet in your area if you still want to try to switch.

      Thank you.
