Garlic Horslyx now backed up by research!
As the sun starts to shine our thoughts start turning away from the wet, boggy conditions we have experienced this winter towards the summer season, however that can bring its own problems. With a mild but very wet winter behind us, flies may be a real problem over the coming months, however here at Horslyx we have some news that can help with that...
Results from two separate studies at Aberystwyth University have shown that when fed continuously, Garlic Horslyx can reduce the number of flies landing on horses (when fed for a minimum period of two weeks).
The first research study shows that feeding Garlic Horslyx would be expected to reduce the irritation from flies and other airborne flying insects making your horse more settled whilst out at grass or in the stable.
This was confirmed in the second study at Aberystwyth investigating the ability of Garlic Horslyx to reduce the amount of time that horses with existing sweet itch, an allergic reaction to the Culicoides midge bite, spend performing behaviours associated with alleviating the irritation caused by this condition.
The second study demonstrated that Garlic Horslyx had beneficial effects in decreasing the number of times each affected horse tried to alleviate the irritation of sweet itch.
The research concluded: "Feeding Garlic Horslyx helped to alleviate irritation caused by sweet itch, which in turn may reduce stress, making for a happier, more responsive and co-operative horse."
For especially sensitive horses, combining Garlic Horslyx with other products such as fly sprays and rugs could give optimum protection from flies and other flying insects.
Garlic Horslyx is a palatable, nutrient rich lick containing optimum amounts of pure garlic oil, together with the Horslyx high specification vitamin, mineral and trace element package, which incorporates the powerful antioxidants Vitamin E and selenium to support a strong immune system.
When fed alongside the correct amounts of good quality forage, Garlic Horslyx removes the need for buckets of hard feed and offers a palatable, easy to use and cost effective method of feeding your horse garlic, whilst balancing the deficiencies in forage and grazing.
