Ask Frédérique Cauffmann : What kind of natural supplements do you recommend before winter for a healthy horse?
Hello Melina,

Winter is the opportunity to remineralize the body especially with nettle. Rich in iron and trace elements, nettle brings to horses tonicity, a nice hair, skin. It is rich in vitamin C, iron, proteins, chlorophylle. The nettle is also a stimulant for blood circulation and allows to fight anemia.
 
 
-Spiruline is composed of :
-65% of high quality proteins (thanks to the amino acid) that micro sea-weed contains the 8 amino acids that must be provided in every organism. The proteins are essential to the muscles manufacture. 7% of minerals and trace elements (minerals (macro elements present in ponderable quantities) and trace elements (present in a tiny quantity)) are essential as they intervene in the vital mechanism : enzymatic process, oxydation reaction, energy transferts, metabolism).
-It is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B7, B8, B12, D, E and K.
-From its composition, the Spiruline stimulates the immune system, detoxifies the body from heavy metals, encourages the oxygenation of the blood, muscles and cells, corrects the deficiencies, stimulates the exchanges of nutrients, and allows to prevent or treat anemia.
-Its important contribution in proteins helps to maintain and to put on some muscles. It reduces muscluar pains and improves endurance.
-It helps to get a faster recovery. To sum up, your horse has a better general state (http://horseremedy.eu/fr/herboristerie/70-spirulin).
To help the immune system and avoid some virus, you have echinacea. It can be used in case of a decrease of the immune system. It allows to protect horses against infectious disease. It allows to help the antibodies to prevent and fight against infections. The active ingredients are more important in the roots that in the leaves.
