valerian.jpgVALERIAN - valeriana officinalis
(ROOT)

Even the Latin name suggests that valerian has a sedative effect. Although slightly, but reliably. It can also be used in mixtures for colic as it also has spasmolytic properties. The best method of administration is a tincture but if this is not possible, the root is used in a feed mixture. We use the valerian to calm down irritated horses, for horses that have a harder time tolerating changes, either when moving to races or to another stable or when the owner changes. We can also use it to remove a bad habit caused by nervous irritation, at the same time it is said to expel worms, but be careful not to mistake it for deworming. For external use, we can use the valerian for healing wounds and removing muscle spasms. Calming in case of nervous irritation, strengthens the immune system, in spasmodic colic, to relax the muscles.

Dosage: 50g for an adult horse, half the dose for ponies and foals.
Method of preparation: we use the cut root from the valerian, just add a handful to the feed, we add it in a dry state or we can prepare it as a tea, which is not strained, but added to the feed.
Contains doping substances. Do not use on pregnant or lactating mares!
