THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CEN ULCER PROTECT AND ULCER MEDICATION
Ulcer medications (e.g Ulcerguard) turn down/block acid production in the horse’s stomach (proton pump inhibitor). CEN Ulcer Protect does not inhibit the natural acid pump action. It helps protect and heal the stomach wall with high-quality ingredients without side effects.
Stomach acid is vital for protein digestion and absorption of key vitamins and minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The acid in the stomach is also important as a barrier against micro-organisms and parasites in the environment entering further down the digestive system.
Ulcers in horses can occur in the Foregut and Hindgut.
Long-term use of ulcer medication can be risky. Evidence from human research that long-term use of Omeprazole impacts calcium absorption, which has been linked to an increased risk of osteoporosis where bones become weak and there is the risk of fracture. Short-term use would be a lower risk.
This has caused some nutritionists and researchers in equine nutrition to question the long term use of Omeprazole in horses. Dr. Juliet Getty – internationally respected independent equine nutritionist, believes that concerns are reasonable because what happens in a horse’s stomach is not that different from human digestion.
