Rain Scald

Rain Scald – Dermatophilus congolensis a gram positive bacteria that usually lives fairly harmlessly on the skin, but if the skin gets and stays wet, the bacteria can invade and set up an infection.  Spray with Sparsa Spray two to three times a day and feed Goldenoil.  In cases of poor immunity also feed Stable C.



  GOLDENOIL  –   Registered Client Information

 INGREDIENTS – Calendula (Marigold flowers), Curcuma longa extract (Curcumin)  cold infused in Helianthus annuus oil (Sunflower), Natural tocopherols (Vitamin E) from Wheat Germ.


 Feeding GOLDENOIL every day is an ideal way of getting a horse or pony to “Shine” but at the same time bestowing a long list of benefits that has a direct effect on the metabolism by its supporting influence on the pituitary and adrenal glands.

GOLDENOIL is the feeding oil of choice for all horses and ponies diagnosed suffering from or suspected of having Cushing’s disease (PPID) and imparting extra support for horses and pones on prescribed drugs or alternative fed specifics to help the condition.

GOLDENOIL is a double infused feeding oil that means taking in the case of Goldenoil, Calendula (Pot Marigold) Flowers and macerating (soaking) them in fine quality Sunflower Oil for between 4 to six weeks then straining off the solid residues from which the goodness has been extracted and then repeating the process for a further length of time then adding previously made Curcumin Oil then a substantial amount of natural mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E).

An important feature of Goldenoil is that there is a sufficiency of Lecithin which is required by the body to burn fats and inhibits the establishment of fatty deposit accumulation by keeping them in movement round the body. The Lecithin stops the thickening of fats congealing into the numerous nodes and junctures of the lymphatic system and is a source of choline particularly vital to the well-being of the Equine.

The  ingredients used and the  process involved in making GOLDENOIL  provides  a valuable source of  lipids (fat/oils) to the horse’s daily diet in a  very digestible and assimilatable form. The potential benefits are myriad some of which are listed below

Imparts outstanding appearance

Helps arrest the production of histamine

A source of quiet energy, (energy as usable oil).

An antioxidant and anti-inflammatory aiding skin repair

Lowers allergic responses

Helps restoration of immune defences

 Notes –

Curcumin is included in GOLDENOIL – Curcumin the 5% active ingredient of Turmeric is fat soluble so there must be some source of fat in the diet to promote its absorption. Including a recommended daily amount in GOLDENOIL is an ideal way of delivering this potent source of antioxidants.

The natural Vitamin E in GOLDENOIL is from Sunflower oil, the oil in the mascaraed Calendula petals and from Wheat Germ Oil amounting to over 2500 mg of mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E from natural sources) per 50 ml of Golden Oil. 

GOLDENOIL is a high quality feeding oil rich in the essential fatty acid Linoleic acid necessary for the transport of fats and the maintenance and repair of the membrane that encloses the cell. GOLDENOIL is particularly beneficial in helping to protect and repair the skin as it has Mitogenic (cell proliferant) and anti-histamine properties which is especially helpful when horses are bothered by flies and biting insects.



Vitamins are organic compounds required by animals in very small quantities in the diet for the proper operation of their physiological life. Whilst this definition implies that animals are dependent on exogenous sources of vitamins some of them can be synthesised either by the microbial activity (as in the rumen of a ruminant) or by the functions of organs (for example Vitamin C and Vitamin D). If endogenous synthisis does occur additional dietary supplies can still be necessary under certain circumstances.

Most animal species are able to synthisis Vitamin C in their liver and kidneys from glucose and other similar 6-carbon products. This reaction is dependent on the enzyme L-Gulonolactone oxidoreductase which functions in the final stage of the synthisis, some species, notably man, primates, guinea pigs, salmonids and one particular group of birds lack the enzyme and are therefore dependant on exogenous supplies of Vitamin C. Most equines normally appear to have adequate supplies of L-Gulonolactone oxidoreductase and can be assumed to have sufficient endogenous ascorbic acid however when horses are under and in less than optimum health amounts may be quite variable or inadequate. All equines are assumed to be born with L-Gulonolactone oxidoreductase.

It has been shown that parasites and disease affects ascorbate plasma levels in horses and additional exogenous supplies are needed to rebuild normal body pools. High temperature, draughty conditions also reduce blood levels to an extent that requires further supplementation.

Following any form of insult to the horse’s body whether through injury, disease or through the effects of stress the first reaction of the horse’s metabolism is to increase the production of Vitamin C. This is because Vitamin C is ‘first on the scene’ and in common with other water-soluble vitamins little or no reserve is ever being produced above that already sufficient for maintaining the status quo coupled with that which is being supplied in the diet passing through at the time.

The acceleration of Vitamin C synthesis depends on the magnitude of the crisis, a full “Air-Sea rescue” requires considerable ascorbic overdrive to firstly help combat the threat of infection (free radical proliferation) and secondly the commencement of tissue regeneration and subsequent new membrane formation. The speed and efficiency of output rescue is also much dependant on liver & kidney status.

In the presence of even small amounts of moisture there is normally a rapid oxidation of Vitamin C first to dehydroascorbic acid and then to other non-vitamin active products. This irreversible oxidation is accelerated by alkalis and by the presence of metal ions such as copper. Some oxidative losses occur even during mixing of dry feeds usually from 10 – 30%. The amount of loss may amount to 85 – 90% of added ascorbic acid in pelleted or extruded feeds. Losses continue exponentially during the storage of feed.

The fact that Vitamin C is the primary functionary in both defence and reconstruction makes it difficult to ascertain the exact way Vitamin C helps in stressful situations. It clearly reduces stress impact but is it because it reduces free radical breakdown as an antioxidant or because it is the prime mover in tissue rebuild. In cases of stress from injury and disease it is thought of as helping because of its role in the immunity system, in infection it is thought of because of it healing influence. In reality it is not doing one without the other. Skin and lung disorders can well be an acute symptom of Vitamin C insufficiency due to the fact that Vitamin C is essential in the establishment of a healthy immune system and as the cells in the skin are easily divided any lowing in immunity is likely to affect epithelia first. Chronic Vitamin C results in a wide variety of metabolic mal-functions.

An increase in serum Vitamin C is needed at the onset of every malady, illness, injury, infection or disease encountered by Equines and commensurate amounts of Vitamin C maintained to help healing heal help restoration and resolve any degree of poor health, likewise the effects at any time of stress. If supply of endogenous Vitamin C is not sufficient to meet the requirements of the day an exogenous source in the next alternative most commonly in the form of dietary support. This can be provided by the presence of sufficient daily levels of fresh green vegetation. Should daily amounts be limited or not possible an alternative safe and reliable source of Vitamin C of sufficient potency should be fed.

At a management level the hardest task is to ascertain whether synthesis is at optimum or if additional dietary Vitamin C will help improve a less than satisfactory condition or situation. Vitamin C insufficiency in biosynthetic animals results from an initial flood of toxins or the relentless accumulation of the effects of stress overwhelming the normal detoxification capacity of the liver resulting in a build-up of concentrated cholesterols not being converted into bile acids at the normal rate. This situation results in a dilemma as lower quantities of bile and quality (concentration) of bile means less intestinal protection with greater disturbance and free radical damage (purification) occurring, requiring greater levels of Vitamin C whilst synthesis is decreasing in the liver and kidneys. On a management level three options present themselves –

Option 1. – Attempt to increase liver and kidney function – L94 – REXFLO, H29 –TPGS etc to maximise endogenous Vitamin c
Option 2. – Increase quality and quantity of grazing to increase exogenous Vitamin C
Option 3. – STABLE C
There is no daily exogenous level of Vitamin C that meets the varying requirement of any extra Vitamin C needed in addition to endogenous production. Horses on a similar diet, in the same environment and under the same management will all respond to a given daily level differently , for some at one time it may not be too necessary but at other times certainly worthwhile feeding, for others health and well-being will suffer greatly without it at all times. It is widely accepted by professionals 1500 mg per day for a 500 kg Bodyweight horse in active work is a good all round figure to consider but with the acknowledgement that wide variations even with the healthy horse on a good diet with adequate levels of other vitamins occurs due to the variations of stress.
20ml of STABLE C provides approximately 1500mg of Vitamin C per day
To help any need for a sudden increase in Vitamin C to help in the case of a fresh insult to the horses a level of 3000ml per day for the first week worth feeding this equates to 40ml (20ml in the morning and 20 ml in the evening). These estimated guidelines assume there is satisfactory hepatic and renal function.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is one of the most well know nutrients worldwide. Such recognition is not without firm foundation not only because it a key antioxidant protecting all cells form damage and purification but it serves as a cofactor in the synthisis of important neurotransmitters such as dopamine and Norepinephrine that play an integral role in cellular energy and is essential for the proper metabolism of carbohydrates and the synthisis of fat and protein as well as breaking down cholesterols and helping to maintain optimum immunity.
STABLE C contains ascorbic acid (the term refers to Vitamin c in its purest form) and Flavonoids. Although ascorbic acid will work in the horse’s body without flavonoids Vitamin C works better when accompanied by flavonoid molecules, their presence in cells spares Vitamin C and provides greater anti-oxidant activity. Vitamin C is essential for collagen stabilisation and a deficiency results in poor cross linkage and weaker connective tissue. As a browser the horse uses flavonoids in fresh vegetation to assist in the utilisation and distribution of the Vitamin C it synthesises in its liver and kidneys. To ensure exogenous top up of Vitamin C is of most value added flavonoids should accompany any ascorbic acid content.
Except when fed as a prophylactic as in feeding for a week or so immediately-performance STABLE C is rarely fed as a single specific but as an adjunct as there is not one recovery programme where Vitamin C is involved, the dilemma is whether to feed or to consider not necessary as the horses is producing sufficient quantities itself. There are some obvious signposts such as bleeding and energy drop off, muscle stiffness, poor immunity and all forms of haircoat changes but some are not so obvious such as unexplained fall off in performance due to energy being used to fight unknown infection as opposed to being available for kinetic energy. It can never hurt to feed Stable C even if it is actually not needed by the metabolism as it is harmlessly excreted by the kidneys nevertheless it is not without cost and effort so the options must be thought of.
Recovery programmes most used are those that bring the two heavyweights together namely Vitamin C and Vitamin E to maintain the immune system this is done conveniently by feeding when necessary –
Other popular combinations are
For bleeding STABLE C and RAKT RAMANI
For breathing problems STABLE C and Z70 OR AH181, STABLE C and CANDLEWICK OIL
For fractures, sore shins, strains, torn muscles and tendons STABLE C and CONVELIX
For EMS and metabolic mal-functions, Laminitis & Low grade lameness STABLE C and L94, STABLE C and REXFLO

Of all the cells in the horse’s body the most easily divided are those of epithelium cells so very often a skin malignancies and bruised tissue either as a single specific support or in conjunction with other specifics such as L94, B51 or Glandex.
Hives (Urticaria)
Rain Scald and other fungal infections
Sweet Itch
Chronic hair loss eczema

Immune stimulant
Anti- inflammatory
Anti- Haemorrhage
Oestrogen activity
Absorption of iron
Less temperament variations
Better conception and healthy reproductive organs
Healthy tissue of blood vessels, teeth, gums and collagen
Increased resistance to infection

Horses like humans accumulate small but hazardous amounts of carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, arsenic, mercury, lead, copper, molybdenum, cadmium and other poisons simply by being alive in the Twenty First century. Eating, touching and breathing poisons every day and if was not for the body’s constant vigilance it would have a very slim chance of surviving for much longer than a month or so. The horse does this by ‘complexing’ such pollutants so that they can be excreted via the bowels, kidneys and the skin. Th most immediate protectant the horse has for rendering such carcinogens and contaminants into less toxic compounds is Vitamin C which is synthesised in the liver its action safeguarding Glutathione peroxidase vital for the protection of all cellular membranes from putrefying.
Each pollutant causes destruction in its own way as well as contributing exponentially to the overall degradation caused by toxins combining, this is why disorders can vary and sometimes there can be differing damage to different organs. Undesirable deposits of calcium around injured cell tissue may build up damaging muscle fibres and connective tissue whilst another horse will suffer irregularities in the duodenum and other parts of the gastro intestinal tract and other premature loss of DHEA in the adrenals and suffer piturity mal-function others anaemia and white cell, abnormalities. The numbers of toxic permutations are endless, the establishment and magnitude of damage being greatly dependant on the horse’s endogenous production of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) especially its inherent ability to accelerate its synthesis swiftly whenever there is an immediate threat.
The capacity to do this is directly dependant on a number of factors the first being the health and operating status of the horse or pony’s liver and quantity and concentration of its bile an immediate function of the liver, there being no gall bladder reserve in the Equine and the adequacy of the body stores of tocopherols which are not just the major anti-oxidant detoxifier but is integral to ascorbic acid synthesis by the liver along with potassium and methionine and other nutrients. Should there at any time be an insufficiency of tocopherols Vitamin C production will be reduced or not take place giving a head start to free radicals bent on the disintegration of cell structure and putrefaction. Low or curtailed production of ascorbic acid has yet another sting it its tail, vitamin C recycles Vitamin E so if for any reason ascorbic acid production is reduced Vitamin E stores are quickly exhausted and what is considered adequate levels of Vitamin E in the daily diet are totally inadequate.

Physiologists, Therapists, Practitioners and all those advising on the wellbeing of horses including Consultants such as ourselves have to employ no small measure of detective skills to work out what has gone wrong which is why we need as much information as possible both current and historic and on the very odd occasion the reverse i.e. What has gone right? Last month for instance for some reason or other a fine riding horse beset with breathing problems suddenly got better. To the amazement of all of us involved not lease the owner, it suddenly occurred that after a series of Tracheal wash readings regularly around over 30 suddenly dropped to zero, there was no mistake it was immediately suspected something affirmative had happened by the clarity of the sample before it was sent off for testing. There has to be a reason but to date we can only speculate. By comparison the fortunate mystery pales into insignificance compared with one of the most famous examples of something going right. For years it haunted James Lind the British Navel Surgeon when he first read the story of the crew of three French ships commanded by Jacques Cartier trapped in fathom deep ice on the St Lawrence River some 200 years before during the winter of 1535-36. Of 110 men 25 had already died and except for no more than three or four the rest were so ill as to have abandoned all hope of recovery. As the crisis deepened Cartier sought out Domogaia a local Indian Chief for help and following much ceremony drumming, shaking and loud noise and women boiling up decoctions from the “Sapp” of magic trees and painting the dregs on the crew’s legs not one more sailor died. If it had not puzzled Lind so much the incident would have no doubt remained an unexplained happening. Translation could also not be relied upon indeed there is no word in North American languages for the word medicine that created in translation ‘Medicine Men.’ Almost invariably among the Chiefs were ‘Mystery Men’ their word meant Mystery in as much as it was he who knew what to do, learned by trial and error since prehistory but not how it worked or indeed which bit of ceremony handed down to them was vital and which was not, so often it was as big a mystery to him as everyone else but not for the admitting. Europeans on the other hand declared they knew what had befallen the crew, it was the bad air. Thanks to Lind’s detective work and his hunch that not everything was applicable but something had to be, his experiments into diets were launched and the rest is history and the eventual discovery of Vitamin C. Although just as vital, horses unlike Primates and a few other exceptions do not need to be fed Vitamin C as long as storage levels of Vitamin E levels are adequate. An explanation of the complex relationship between Vitamin E and Vitamin C is beyond the scope of these few lines however if any client is interested we have a data sheet on a entitled RETURN TO FITNESS goes some way towards explaining things and answers many of the questions why formula such as L94, H29 CAVENA and REGAIN can be so important for horses just as it was for the French Sailors and if not -Ils allez au diable à leur manière “They go to the devil their own way”.

REXFLO – Registered Client Information

Cynara scolymus extract (Cynarin*) ext, Taraxicum officinalis rad, Achillea millefolium ext, Arctium
lappa rad, Honey, Zingiber officinalis, Stevia rotundifolia extract.
REXFLO is formulated to help maintain a healthy circulatory system and is about optimum levels of
lymph reaching the cells and waste products draining from the cells and flowing out to be efficiently
eliminated thus helping to maintain a healthy digestive system.
Whilst the essential features of the digestive system of the Equine are the same as that of all
mammals, evolution has imposed a number of features upon it that are unique to the species. Such
features call for a greater reliance on the horse’s liver and pancreas to help maintain a clean and
clear digestive and lymphatic system upon on which it so much depends.
Include REXFLO every day with the regular bucket feed to help maintain freedom from the following
common problems which originate from the occurrence of a than optimum digestive processes
Low grade lameness
The development of subcutaneous waste deposits (fat pads)
Fluid retention
Chronic Laminitis
Lymphatic torpidity
Circulatory disorders in the feet
Hepatic degeneration
General enfeeblement of body and spirit
Possible non-specific digestive problems
Feed when necessary as a follow on from L94 may also be fed with H29 and Setback Salts
The formula is devoid of any really harmful side effects however the following may occur –
1. Urination routine may well be upset and initially be more frequent
2. Blood fats will increase initially but then fall.
Cholagogue – increases bile production by up to 60 %
Liver restorative
Assists digestion of fats
Stimulates metabolism
Reduces levels of fats in the blood
Aids cell metabolism
Fluid retention
Circulatory stimulant & peripheral vasodilation.
Notes on Itching – Itching is a symptom of many conditions. The underlying cause of
generalised itching can often be due to less that optimum Liver and Pancreatic function including
a lowering of immune responses to candida albicans and other virulent fungal infections.
Itching is the effort of the central nervous system to move a deeper disturbance towards the
skin where irritation may well be distressing but where it is least damaging.
General notes – Lymph convey to the blood the final products of digestion and receives from the
blood waste products of metabolism. Lymph fluid loaded with waste, excess protein etc is
sucked into the lymph tubes to be filtered by the spleen and lymph nodes. A number of
disorders arise when the fluid in overburdened by toxaemia, out of solution minerals etc. Poor
drainage and enlarged nodes (glands) with un-eliminated waste slows down the flow extending
the time (dwell time) that toxins remain in contact with tissue doing exponential damage. It is
often said that If the lymph is circulating freely it is almost impossible for horses to become sick.
The lymphatic system is even capable of building up an immunity to further infections but on the
other hand lymphatic torpidity can be the very start of illness and susceptibility to disease from
being “off Form” to being in constant poor health and immobile. REXFLO helps maintain
lymphatic tempo, pH changes can quickly encourage waste oxides travelling back for eventual
elimination to come out of solution and begin the first processes of calcification (like the drip
from the top of a cave forming a stalagmite on the floor) constricting capillaries and forming
cellulite deposits (fat pads) that in turn cause further dams to the circulation.
REXFLO supports vital liver function and most importantly it is an excellent cholagogue that
gently increases both the concentration and the secretion of Bilirubin in the duodenum it helps
stimulate pancreatic enzymes and the digestive system in general. Since the horse has no gall
bladder and therefore no reserves of bile it is directly dependant on its actual hepatic output day
and night. This dependency makes the horse less tolerant of undulations in liver function than
other animals. Other factors also serve to make the Equine a hepatically complicated animal,
besides Equines living much longer than other creatures and their bile being different, when
mature their liver capacity is smaller in proportion to their size than other mammals.
Rexflo contains a large amount of extraordinary therapeutic substances known as flavonoids and
is able to protect the liver and the horse against poisons in three primary ways.
FIRSTLY by acting on the cell membrane of the liver and probably most other cells of the horse’s
body by stabilising and strengthening by actively competing for the cell membrane structure so
that toxins are unable to affect cell membranes in its presence allowing regeneration of the liver
cells to take place.
SECONDLY by a further hepatoprotective mechanism of action involving the enterohepatic
circuit. The Equine has no intermediate reserve of bile so there is an immediacy between the
liver and the the production of bile, the greenish-yellow alkaline substance secreted by the liver
which emulsifies and prevents putrefaction in the intestines and aid pancreatic function. The
enterohepatic circuit is old bile returning to the liver loaded with impurities and waste for
detoxification being exchanged for fresh new bile. Rexflo plays a vital role in helping maintain
and rejuvenate this action as it is a particularly effective cholagogue increasing the production
and volume of bile flow by as much as four times normal in a 12 hour period. Poor liver function
and bile deficiency in both amount and concentration means poisons, pollutants, and drug
residues not being exchanged properly and except for some biliary excretion simply moving
backwards and forwards increasing the amount of liver damage on each pass, this is known as
the Ping Pong effect the latter word being a clue to it occurring. Toxicity produced through the
enterohepatic circuit usually takes considerable time to develop, the larger and heavier the
organism the longer it takes to produce toxicity. Rexflo when fed firstly interrupts the primary
absorption of toxins then helps prevent their reabsorption due to enterohepatic circulation.
Cells that are not yet contaminated are protected from circulating toxins and act as centres for
the generation of new liver cells. With time, complete restoration of the liver is possible.
THIRDLY Rexflo also helps the regeneration of destroyed liver tissue by stimulating cellular
protein synthesis and subsequently new cells can be built and nourished.
Although the liver already possesses the ability to regenerate itself its capacity to do so is slowed
by certain toxic substances, viruses, fatty degeneration and age Rexflo encourages the
regeneration of cells destroyed during both normal detoxification process and the deleterious
effects of air, water and food-borne toxins.
REXFLO is a cellular regenerator, peripheral vasodilator improving the strength and tone of
capillaries, elasticity of the walls of blood vessels and opening up surface areas enabling more
blood to be circulated to assist tissue build up and tissue strength. REXFLO helps elevate white
cell production and liver glycogen reserves essential for red cell manufacture and for tissues
dependant on sufficient liver glycogen presence.
Swellings and Low grade lameness can often be due to less than optimum circulation to the feet.
Nutrients and oxygen destined for the feet fail to fully reach certain areas causing tissue to
become poor and necrotic developing an arterial shunt where the area is partially avoided and
the blood finds another way back to the heart. These starved areas become weak with transient
low levels of vasculitis and Lymphangitis occurring resulting in tenderness and pain when weight
bearing on hard or stony ground, in turn concussion causes more inflammation and greater
obstruction of nutrients and elimination of metabolites.

     Z70   –  Registered Client Information

 INGREDIENTS – Marrubium vulgare, Verbascum Thapsus, Symphytum officinalis, Honey, Prunus serotina, Cetraria islandica, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Zingiber officinalis, 

To help support optimum respiratory function in the otherwise healthy horse, for feeding to horses that are suffer Heaves – Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD ) to help maintain a reasonable quality of life. One litre will last 20 Days at 50 ml per day

To help maintain freedom from allergies that can result in asthma, for feeding to horses that are sensitive to pollen and other micro substances (also see AH181 & Candlewick Oil). Feed when necessary for as long as required, may be fed on a permanent basis.

NB – The major lesions in the lungs of horses suffering from COPD are bronchiolitic with emphysema occurring in small areas.  In all cases of diagnosed COPD ventilation should be good and sensitizing substances such as mouldy hay and dusty bedding should be avoided thus reducing cough and respiratory rate. Z70 supports bronchial function with bronchodilatory, expectorant and mucolytic properties also contains levels of Eugenols which besides its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties helps increase the horse’s tolerance to physical and emotional stress.

    CANDLEWICK OIL  –   Registered Client Information

 INGREDIENTS – Verbascum Thapsus flowers (Candlewick) & Curcumin (Extract from Curcuma longa) double infused in Helianthus annuus oil (Sunflower), Natural tocopherols (Vitamin E) from Wheat Germ.

Feed to help maintain freedom from allergies that can result in asthma like symptoms, congestion and puffy eyes and horses generally sensitive to pollen, dust and other polluting substances. A soothing relaxant to irritable respiratory conditions, anti-tussive and healing, feed to horses when breathing becomes laboured due to atmospheric conditions. Candlewick oil is also helpful for muscle soreness and imparts outstanding appearance and healing properties

Feeding CANDLEWICK OIL every day is an excellent antioxidant and way of keeping your horse or pony ‘waterproofed’ and protected whilst at the same time. The source of quiet energy it provides can substitute the same calories that may provide energy from in a more kinetic (lively) form.

CANDLEWICK OIL is a double infused high quality feeding oil rich in the essential fatty acid Linoleic acid necessary for the transport of fats and the maintenance and repair of the membrane that encloses the cell.

The numerous antioxidants in CANDLEWICK OIL provide the horse’s breathing with a special on-going support and are particularly safe and suitable for all horses and ponies, of all ages including breeding stock and competition horses under rules.  Feed a few drops to start with mixed into the regularly fed bucket feed and then gradually increase always mixing in well to preserve an even consistency to the chop, dried grass, pulp and cereal etc.

Feed CANDLEWICK OIL in preference to chops and cereal mixes to which fat/oils have been previously added oil to avoid risk of peroxidation or feeding unwanted preservatives Freshness, the right type of oil and quality makes all the difference.

Verbascum thapsus ( Mullien, Aaron’s rod, Candlewick/wort, Canela regia)  – is one of the most versatile herbs and with a tradition of helping with asthma, hollow cough, hay fever and bronchitis type problems (Dr Quinlan initiated what became an Irish traditional treatment for tuberculosis). Few plants have so many names not just in English but in many languages it is known by a host of titles which is perhaps a testament of the interest it has always generated. Since the dawn of time to present day it has been singled out as a helper of mankind. 

Helianthus annuus oil ( Sunflower) – Rich in valuable Linoleic acid, high in natural Vitamin E and B vitamins and excellent for muscles, nerves and blood  helps to build physical endurance, long sight and  resistance to disease.

   GLANDEX 247  –   Registered Client Information

 INGREDIENTS – Iris versicolor (Blue Flag), Polyethoxylated ascorbic acid (Liquid Vit C) REG No NP1178, Phytolacca decandra EXT (Poke root), Stevia rotundifolia.

 GLANDEX 247 is a blood and lymph depurative with protected Vitamin C to support horses recovering from endo/enterotoxaemia, abscesses and other perverse conditions of the skin.

GLANDEX 247 may be fed in conjunction with Trinity Formula R44 Echinacea formula.

Notes – Lymph, the same fluid that oozes from a cut when the bleeding stops surround every living cell and conveys to the blood the final products of digestion of food. It also receive from blood waste products of the metabolism (the exhaust fumes of life) thus there is two-way traffic. Lymph fluid, loaded with waste, excess protein etc is sucked into the lymph tubes to be filtered by the spleen and the lymph nodes. The tubes are filed with countless one-way valves referred to collectively as the lymphatic pump, which propels the flow of lymph forwards. Lymph ultimately is collected in the main thoracic duct rising upwards in front of the spine to enter the bloodstream at the base of the neck. A number of disorders may arise when the fluid becomes over-burdened by toxaemia, poor drainage and enlarged nodes (glands). Such uneliminated wastes form cellulite which is unwanted tissue formation and swelling, thus the very ground may be prepared for various chronic mal-conditions secondary to this. On the other hand if the lymph is circulating freely it is almost impossible for the horse to become sick.

Mal-conditions of the skin are often a manifestation a sudden or chronic lymph disorder; the skin is itself the ‘third kidney’ as is thus a barometer of lymph health

SKIN GROWTHS – By aiding blood filtration, accelerating ascorbic acid in the adrenal glands, strengthening immunity responses, stimulating spleen ,pancreatic and liver function, plus shutting down aerobic and anaerobic glycolysis and respiration to non-healthy cells whilst leaving healthy cell uninhibited by its contribution of NDGA (nordihydroguaiaretic acid) GLANDEX 247 may help in many mal-conditions affecting the skin and it is suggested that it is fed whenever there is a flare up of Sarcoidosis, Warts and other Skin growths.

HIVES (acute and chronic) is Urticaria a rash of raised spots or lumps that will erupt transient watery discharge or become watery swellings that often appear in one or two areas but can occur randomly as a result of a release of histamine due to reaction to environmental irritants from plants, insect bites/stings, chemicals (Sprays), rancid fats and certain feeds which if still effecting the horse makes it difficult to gain freedom from. In all cases seek Veterinarian help. Feed GLANDEX 247 to help, in conjunction with other measures, to support recovery as a natural systemic purifier supporting the cleansing mechanisms of the blood, skin and intestinal health. (The non-gastro-intestinal consequences of H. pylori infection and Candida have been linked with Urticaria and Rosacea)
