THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CEN ULCER PROTECT AND ULCER MEDICATION

Ulcer medications (e.g Ulcerguard) turn down/block acid production in the horse’s stomach (proton pump inhibitor).  CEN Ulcer Protect does not inhibit the natural acid pump action. It helps protect and heal the stomach wall with high quality ingredients without side effects.

Stomach acid is vital for protein digestion and absorption of key vitamins and minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The acid in the stomach is also important as a barrier against micro-organisms and parasites in the environment entering further down the digestive system.

Ulcers in horses can occur in the Foregut and Hindgut.

FOREGUT AND HINDGUT

Long term use of ulcer medication can be risky. Evidence from human research that long term use of Omeprazole impacts calcium absorption, which has been linked to an increased risk of osteoporosis where bones become weak and there is the risk of fracture. Short term use would be a lower risk.

This has caused some nutritionists and researchers in equine nutrition to question the long term use of Omeprazole in horses. Dr. Juliet Getty – internationally respected independent equine nutritionist, believes that concerns are reasonable because what happens in a horse’s stomach is not that different from human digestion.

“What happens in humans is that these medications not only reduce protein digestion, but they also inhibit the absorption of key minerals and vitamins, such as magnesium, calcium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12” said Getty.

WHY USE CEN ULCER PROTECT?

HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN PEPTIDES

Studies into the effectiveness of Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides for Ulcers in horses has shown that Hydrolyzed Collagen-fed horses had fewer and less severe ulcers throughout the trial. Significantly fewer ulcers were seen after 56 days of feeding. Hydrolyzed Collagen also lowered the severity of gastric ulcers in stall-confined horses undergoing stall confinement and feed stress (Hydrolysed Collagen And Ulcer Study).

ORGANIC TURMERIC

Turmeric in research showed suppression of the formation of stomach ulcers when fed daily to horses. (1)​

SLIPPERY ELM BARK

SLIPPERY ELM BARK

Contains high amounts of mucilage that adheres to the gastrointestinal tract, soothing and coats injured and inflamed tissues, helping them to heal and reducing the likelihood of scarring, as well as drawing out toxins and irritants.

Gelatin Hydrolysate

GELATIN HYDROLYSATE

Gelatin’s short peptides – glyprolines – consist of amino acids of glycine and proline. They protect the stomach mucous tunic from injuries. Glyprolines are easily absorbed in the stomach and remain in the blood for a long time without breaking up. They act not only on the stomach cells but also on the central nervous system overcoming the blood-brain barrier, therefore they help prevent the ulcers caused by stress.
