A popular superfood for people, organic spirulina also has significant health benefits for horses. It is particularly helpful in supporting the immune system, respiratory function, skin health and metabolic health.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that contains powerful antioxidants, amino acids and anti-inflammatory essential fatty acids. It is rich in vitamins and minerals including beta-carotene (the precursor for vitamin A), B complex vitamins, vitamins C and E, zinc, magnesium, selenium and also chlorophyll..
This dark green powder is highly digestible and a very useful source of bioavailable protein. It contains all the essential amino acids required in the equine diet and is therefore considered a complete protein. This makes it useful for muscle growth, maintenance and recovery and for horses with higher protein needs such as lactating mares, heavily exercised horses and young horses.
Research has shown that spirulina may help support metabolic health, weight control and healthy insulin sensitivity in horses with EMS. Spirulina may also help reduce gut inflammation and support a healthy gut microbiome. It is a useful detoxifier, helping to bind and remove toxins from the body.
Spirulina is also energising and helps boost the immune system. It has immuno-modulating effects, helping horses maintain healthy lungs and airways in response to seasonal allergens and environmental challenges such as dust and mould spores. By supporting the control of respiratory inflammatory and allergic responses, it may help ease coughing and wheezing. Spirulina also promotes healthy, shiny skin. It supports horses prone to sweet itch by helping maintain a normal immune response to challenges from fly and midge bites, and may help to reduce itching and rubbing.
