Also known as chaste berry, agnus castus is an aromatic shrub which has been used for centuries to manage hormone balance. Sometimes called the ‘female herb’ it has proved very effective when fed to mares during their season. While mainly associated with mares, agnus castus has also been used to maintain hormonal equilibrium in highly-strung stallions as well. Agnus Castus is effective for both male and female horses for the following reasons: • Hormones fluctuate on a regular basis. Mares in particular experience a change prior to or during a season which can cause irritability, aggression and make activities such as riding or showing difficult. Agnus castus has been found to help sustain a healthy hormone balance, leading to more relaxed and agreeable horses • Agnus castus is also linked to supporting a healthy pituitary gland and endocrine system. This allows horses to healthily self- regulate their metabolism, growth, reproductive system and response to stress • While known primarily for managing hormones, agnus castus is also a power antioxidant, containing compounds which ease stress and low mood. Developed in the UK, Omega Equine sources the highest quality agnus castus to ensure that its product is pure and safe for consumption. Highly palatable, this incredible ingredient is an essential dietary addition to keep horses happy and balanced, no matter the season.
