The yellow-flowered dandelion is a tempting treat for horses, hence the nickname ‘horse lettuce’. But while it may be a stubborn weed, it also provides a rich source of vitamins and minerals when consumed. Best known for supporting both the urinary and digestive systems, dandelion is known to encourage healthy urination, support liver and kidney health, and maintain regular bowel movements.
From root to flower, Omega Equine’s Dandelion supplement has some impressive equine health benefits;
- Sometimes referred to as ‘the pee herb’, dandelion is known to sustain regular urine production which can significantly support overall urinary system health
- A potent source of vitamins A, C and K, dandelion is also packed with potassium, magnesium, calcium and manganese. While these nutrients support many bodily functions, they are particularly valuable for maintaining kidney and liver health, especially during periods of stress
- Bioactive compounds such as polyphenols, are known to sustain a healthy response to inflammation. Compounds such as these may aid and sustain joint mobility and function
- Dandelions are a rich source of prebiotic fibre, a high proportion of which comes from inulin. This is known to significantly support the gastrointestinal tract and digestive system by aiding the production of healthy gut-bacteria and maintaining regular bowel movements.
