The Beneficial Powers of Herbs
Herbal medicine is one of the oldest systems of medicine known to mankind. Medicinal herbs are nature's pharmacy: They strengthen the immune system, stimulate the body's self-healing powers and can prevent diseases.
In the wild, horses instinctively recognise the plants that are beneficial to them. However, nowadays the number of plant species growing in our cultivated fields is very limited in number and therefore providing herbs as feed supplements is advisable.
Whether it's a cough, eczema or indigestion, there are herbs to help with a variety of health problems. Furthermore, herbs provide a variety of secondary plant substances which horses require but are usually lacking in modern horse feed.
