Description: IMMUNO 67 is the powder product based on vitamin C, Echinacea purpurea and siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus). Thanks to its constituents, IMMUNO 67 maintains horses’ physiological health status and sustains immune system physiological function.
When to use IMMUNO 67: The immune system aims at protecting the body from several kinds of both external and internal agents. Therefore, a strong immune system can protect a horse and keep it healthy. IMMUNO 67 is the perfect product in case of:
- Low immune defences
- Long transfers with stops in stalls along the way
- Seasons change
- Cold seasons
Properties of its constituents: Vitamin C, Echinacea and siberian ginseng (eleutherococcus) are well-known for their benefical effects on immune system. Scientific literature reports that Vitamin C directly acts on non-specific immune defences: indeed, it can improve the activity of NK cells (Natural Killer cells), of lymphocytes and phagocytes. Moreover, Vitamin C can reduce cytokines, which are waste substances triggering inflammatory processes (5). According to several studies, Echinacea acts as an active immunostimulant. This plant's action consists in increasing immune defences by stimulating immune system and, in particular, by activating phagocytosis (39).
Eleutherococcus senticosus is well known as an useful tonic in case of stress and convalescence. It has immunostimulant properties and can improve physical resistance to environmental stress. Moreover, eleutherococcus also has another important property: it can improve body resistance to efforts (adaptogenic activity), which is highly important for sport horses (100).
Directions for use: Properly mix 25 – 50 g of IMMUNO 67 per day with the daily ration. The measuring scoop provided contains 25 g of product, when rounded full. IMMUNO 67 provides a high Vitamin C intake, which is important to reduce dangerous oxidative status. IMMUNO 67 is particularly useful before transports or long trips and during winter.
This product does not cause any adverse reaction. Nevertheless, since every organism has its own peculiarities, dietary supplements, feeds and complementary feeds should always be introduced in a horse’s diet gradually, in order to evaluate the product’s effects on the horse.
