Couldn’t find any posts really addressing this question. I’ve seen what appears to be promising research regarding hyaluronan and the beta-glucan for both healing and subsequent prevention of ulcers.
I notice there appear to be 3 supplements that aim to provide these ingredients: Equine100X Gut-X ($0.89/day on sale, regular $1.77/day), Vitalize Alimend ($1.97/day), and Resolvet Relyne-GI ($2.33/day). What I can’t find is many reviews on “independent” websites for any of these (although Alimend has a few good reviews on Smartpak). What I can find on Facebook all appears linked to sponsorships. It is hard to compare ingredients as they are each listed slightly differently for each product.
My horse has Grade 2 ulcers (diagnosed by scoping), even after 19 days on Nexium, and is currently being treated with 28 days Gastroguard and Sucralfate as he is insured. He was on G.U.T supplement prior to diagnosis.
These liquid supplements potentially seem like a good, scientifically supported, alternative to powdered or pelleted supplements (except for the convenience factor) for post treatment protection of both stomach and hind gut but I’d love to hear from anyone with reviews (good or bad) about their use of any of these…
