The fermentation process used to create Apple Cider Vinegar yields one particularly important compound - acetic acid. This acid generates effective balancing components in your animals regulatory system so that it is all-around healthier. Acetic acid helps balance the pH in your animal’s body, which also helps treat issues with infection and inflammation.
In addition to acetic acid, Apple Cider Vinegar also contains a number of other beneficial compounds including vitamins, mineral salts, and amino acids. These
nutrients, such as vitamin A and phosphorus, is what makes Apple Cider Vinegar a key
component for treating hoof rot, skin issues, and other health conditions for your stock.
- For insect control:
When stock ingests Apple Cider Vinegar daily in their feed it causes higher levels of thiamine (vitamin B1) to be extracted through their skin. These B vitamins are a natural repellent to insects including bot flys.
- For digestion:
The principal element of Apple Cider Vinegar is acetic acid, as well as some lactic, citric and malic acids. Apple Cider Vinegar is very effective when combined with nutrient-rich foods - as it helps your animal readily assimilate the nutrients. Apple Cider Vinegar works to acidify the stomach for better digestion and absorption of minerals. This can help protect against harmful bacteria, parasites, and water-borne diseases.
- Mane and tail detangler:
Horsehair has a pH level of between 4.5 and 5.5. Many horse shampoos and products disrupt this pH. As already mentioned, Apple Cider Vinegar is naturally high in acetic acid which can help bring your horse’s hair closer to its ideal acidity. It also helps break up residue which makes the hair have less friction. This results in much more manageable hair.
- For the laminitis prone ponies (and horses):
Research has also shown that apple cider vinegar can slow the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream. The acetic acid helps block the absorption of starch, easing that after-meal spike.
- For ulcers:
Apple Cider Vinegar may help animals with ulcers.
- To naturally treat pasture toxicity:
Forage tests were taken from pastures where horses have exhibited head flicking toxicity consistently show high potassium and low sodium (salt).
- For arthritis:
Both animals and humans alike have benefited from Apple Cider Vinegar to help control arthritis pain and stiffness. When fed daily, Apple Cider Vinegar works to remove toxins and restore pH which improves joint health. Part of the reason for Apple Cider Vinegar’s pain-relieving effects are its high acetic acid content, which can help to negate excessive acidity in the blood that can lead to inflammation and thus, pain. The other part is the presence of B - vitamin complex.
