Peppermint to soothe equine digestive upset
Peppermint is one of the oldest herbs known to be used by man. The dried and sifted leaves are a great digestive aid as well as having antimocrobial and antifungal properties. It is the oil in the peppermint leaves that is effective in relaxing and soothing the digestive system.
This aromatic herb helps to eliminate:
- upset stomach
- bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine
Naturally, we add peppermint leaves to our daily digestive supplement, Excel. The key ingredients promote overall digestive health and help to reduce the negative side effects of gastric upset. Excel helps to soothe the entire digestive system (esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines and the colon), which aides in lessening the discomforts of digestive issues.
