It stimulates cellular regeneration of the gastric epithelium by interacting with the immune system (increases the anti-infl ammatory interleukins IL-6 and inhibits the formation of infl ammatory cytokines IL-8 and TNF-α). It is also likely to have direct buffering effects and may effect blood fl ow and bicarbonate secretion.

Ease_ENG_032018. Intensively managed horses such as racehorses or other performance horses have little access to pasture, spending much of their time in the stable. They are meal-fed often with inadequate access to forage leaving the stomach partially empty for periods of the day. In horses, the production of gastric acid and proteolytic enzymes is continuous. An empty stomach increases the contact between the gastric juices and the stomach lining leading to its erosion. Loss of appetite reduced body condition, recurrent colic and loose drappings are all indicators that gastric ulceration may be present. FERMAID EASE can be used following traditional veterinary therapy to maintain gastric health. 43
