Halcyon combines the nutritional support of b-complex vitamins from yeast, with a blend of powdered botanicals, including chamomile, withania and ginger – plant foods which are utilised in traditional health care systems, to help to ease a ‘busy’ mind, moderate blood sugar balance, support digestive function and promote nervous system health and balance.
Other horses who may benefit from supplementation include:
- Horses who have experienced severe stress
- Horses who have experienced severe trauma
- Horses who are producing inadequate enteric b-vitamins due to gastrointestinal or genetic factors
- Horses who are using large volumes of b-vitamins, via their workout schedule, dietary factors, or genetic or metabolic conditions.
Rates & Usage: Halcyon is typically given at a rate of up to 10g/100kg bodyweight daily (approximately 15ml/100kg by volume), mixed in your horse’s hard feed. Your horse’s total daily requirement can be fed split between AM and PM feeds, or given all in one feed as a single daily serving.
Withholding Advice: Halcyon contains chamomile (Matricaria chamomila) plant powder, so please seek veterinary advice with regards to suitable withholding periods for your horse, prior to racing or competition. We suggest a 24 hour withholding period.
Better Together: To give your horse their best chance of success, feed Halcyon in conjunction with a high quality, daily general multi mineral, vitamin, amino and essential fatty acid supplement, such as MacroMin. Your horse may also require additional dietary magnesium (see BioMag).
