Emerald Valley's Manuka Plus
Papaya upgrades a tried and true stomach soother.

Research shows up to 80 percent of horses will have ulcers in their lifetime. Competition, travel, anxiety, nervousness and high sugar/starch feeds may contribute to digestive issues for many horses.
Emerald Valley's Manuka LR has been the natural alternative for supporting healthy gastric function in horses. With the addition of papaya to the original formula of Manuka honey and licorice root, Manuka Plus contains powerful enzymes and is considered a probiotic. Papaya initiates a thickening of the horse's natural stomach lining, providing protection against excess acid. It gives damaged tissues a chance to heal, and may help prevent new ulcers.

Papaya contains the powerful enzyme papain, aiding digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Papaya contains beta-carotene, calcium, vitamin C and many other nutrients, which may help build immunity and boost platelet count.
