Now SynChill is available in a daily oral treat. SynChill Daily pellets provide a safe and easy way to help you and your horse deal with stressful situations.
Like SynChill Oral Gel, SynChill Daily is a proprietary blend of natural ingredients developed for the horse that needs regular help coping with anxiety and nervousness. Supplementing daily helps the key ingredients reach the brain at a higher level and provide a more constant increase in brain serotonin. SynChill daily also incorporates L-theanine, which has an anxiolytic effect independent of brain serotonin production. We consider this all-natural combination to be a synergistic approach promoting the feeling of well-being to the nervous or anxious horse.
SynChill Daily is provided in a palatable alfalfa-based pellet, in a vacuum-packed 30 scoop pouch. Recommended supplementation is 1-2 scoops daily, 1-4 hours before stressful events. One scoop is the most typical supplementation level.
More detailed information
Although 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier (one of the key factors making it superior to tryptophan in an equine calming product) some is metabolized to serotonin in the peripheral tissues. Also, there is some “holding capacity” of 5-HTP by the gut epithelium. Once this capacity is reached, more 5-HTP is absorbed into the circulation and reaches the brain more readily. Daily dosing can help maintain this level and improve the horse’s response.
L-theanine has been shown to reduce anxiety by enhancing hippocampal activity. These effects are associated with reduced glutamine and increased methionine in the cerebrospinal fluid and are in addition to the effects of 5-HTP.
As “flight animals” by nature, some horses natural protective mechanisms to fear, anxiety and confusion can be overwhelming. The need to flee danger can override very good training in very good horses, in some situations. Obviously, individual horses have their own individual needs and, some can benefit more than others from anxiolytic, or calming, supplements. Some horses may need constant help while others may need only occasional or temporary stress relief.
Every horse has individual characteristics and personality. SynChill can help improve your horse’s sense of well-being and improve the horse-person relationship for both of you.
