As travel and show season picks up, our horses’ health remains at the forefront of our minds. Like with humans, travel at any time of year can put stress on horses’ immune systems. Travel becomes even more stressful now with the hot summer on its way. But you already have that covered via plenty of electrolytes and ulcer preventatives. So, how do you keep your horses’ immune system function strong all year round? Let’s dive into the benefits that Cavalor’s Resist + Vit C provides for your horse.

What is Resist + Vit C?

Cavalor Resist + Vit C contains a specific blend of herbs and antioxidants known to support the immune system. High amounts of Vitamin C, along with fatty acids, herbs, and amino acids, work together to make your horse less susceptible to infections and better equipped to fight off pathogens. Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients and their purpose:

Antioxidants: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, beta-carotene, and bioflavonoids are antioxidants that help to strengthen the body’s natural defenses by providing cellular support.

Herbal extracts: Stinging nettle leaf powder, dandelion, and birch leaves also strengthen the body’s natural defenses and further support the immune system.

Essential Oils: Tea tree, lemon, eucalyptus, and lemongrass promote a healthy respiratory system by supporting blood circulation and the lymphatic system. These ingredients also provide relaxation effects, helping to relieve stress and thus taking more strain off the immune system.

Minerals (Fe, Cu, Zn, Mn, Mg): This special composition of minerals helps form antibacterial and antiviral enzymes in the white blood cells, an essential part of fighting off disease.

Prebiotics: Prebiotics promote a balanced gut flora – an essential part of a healthy immune system.

Spirulina: Spirulina helps combat viruses and fungi. This nutrient is rich in vitamins, essential amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, and numerous minerals and proteins, all of which are vital for strong immune functioning.

Whey Protein Isolate: This acts as a precursor of glutathione, which supports the lymphocytes and their optimum function. It is vital for allowing the proper elimination of toxins and carcinogens.

Royal Jelly: This ingredient provides a healthy dose of vitamins, especially vitamin B, for a vitality boost.

When Is It Useful?

Resist + Vit C can be a beneficial addition to any horse’s regimen but is especially helpful in situations that increase the risk of stress on the immune system.

Travel: As aforementioned, travel is a common scenario that adds stress to the immune system. This is not only due to the stress of travel itself but also the contact made with other horses once they reach their destination. Start your horse on Resist + Vit C a week or two before and continue throughout time on the road.

Age: Additionally, age can affect immune functioning – both younger horses and older horses can benefit from that extra support. Whether a youngster is on the road for the first time or an older horse is prepping for the cold winter ahead, be mindful of these situations where a horse could benefit from Resist + Vit C’s many nutrients.

Pre/Post-Vaccinations: Another useful scenario is for horses that experience symptoms after vaccinations. Although flu-like symptoms after vaccines are often not alarming, they are uncomfortable for your horse. Starting Resist + Vit C prior to vaccinations and continuing for up to a few weeks post-vaccinating can help reduce the unpleasant effects of vaccines.

Recovery from Illness: In the unfortunate case that your horse does become ill and is fighting off disease, support for the immune system is essential. This supplement can not only boost recovery efforts but also help fight off recurring infections in the future.
