The benefits of Equine74 Gastric Conditioner
Excessive stomach acid can be combated by supplementing the horse’s diet with a natural buffer.
Equine74 is a safe and 100% natural marine nutraceutical supplement for horses. Derived from calcareous marine algae (Lithothamnion), Equine74 contains 74 naturally occurring minerals and is a rich source of calcium and magnesium.
With added dried brewers’ yeast and live yeast, both of which are known to assist the digestive system, Equine74 is ideal for horses prone to EGUS.
Equine74 helps to protect the gastric mucosa from the effects of continued exposure to stomach acids by raising the stomach’s pH. Trials show that it significantly reduces the incidence of inflammation and ulceration.
The unique natural honeycomb structure of Equine74 provides a surface area in excess of 10m2 per gram. This porous structure allows the digestive system to break Equine74 down slowly, releasing valuable bio-available minerals over an extended period of time for maximum uptake.

- Trials show reduced incidence of gastric ulcers
- Improved stomach health

What is Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome?
Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) is a serious health problem in adult horses and foals, with research showing that as many as 92% of sport horses have gastric lesions. Left untreated, these lesions can cause reduced performance and poor general well-being.
EGUS is caused by the over-production of stomach acid, resulting in the erosion of the stomach’s protective lining. Stomach acid is naturally buffered by saliva, but insufficient production of saliva can cause excessive build-up of acid.
Ulceration may be so severe that the stomach wall becomes perforated, resulting in the release of stomach contents into the abdomen which can cause peritonitis and possible death of the horse.
