Chamomile, a gentle and soothing herb, is widely known for its calming effects on humans, but it has also been used for centuries in traditional medicine to heal various ailments in horses. Its medicinal properties make it a valuable ingredient in equine hoof care products, and that's why we included it in Silver Hoof EQ Therapy® by Draw It Out.
Here's why chamomile is so beneficial for horses' hooves:
Anti-inflammatory Properties: Chamomile contains anti-inflammatory compounds that help to reduce inflammation in the hoof. Inflammation can be caused by various factors, including poor nutrition, injury, and infection. By reducing inflammation, chamomile helps to promote healing and prevent further damage to the hoof.
Antioxidant Properties: Chamomile is rich in antioxidants, which protect the hoof from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells, causing oxidative stress. This stress can lead to hoof problems, including cracking and brittleness. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, helping to prevent this damage.
Antimicrobial Properties: Chamomile has antimicrobial properties that help to fight off bacteria and fungi that can cause infections in the hoof. These infections can lead to thrush, white line disease, and other hoof problems. Chamomile helps to prevent these infections from taking hold, ensuring that your horse's hooves stay healthy.
Soothing Properties: Chamomile is known for its soothing properties, which help to calm and relax the horse. This is important when treating hoof problems, as horses can become stressed and anxious. Chamomile helps to keep the horse calm and comfortable, making treatment easier and more effective.
At Draw It Out, we believe in using the best natural ingredients to promote equine health. That's why we included chamomile in Silver Hoof EQ Therapy®. Chamomile, along with other natural ingredients, helps to maintain healthy hooves by providing protection against microbial infections, balancing moisture content, and supplying necessary nutrients for strong hoof growth. With Silver Hoof EQ Therapy®, you can be confident that your horse's hooves are receiving the best care possible.
