Love this product, my 26 year old horse is doing great on it and looks great!
Supports a healthy neurological system.
ECLIPSE’ PM™ takes a multi-level approach by supporting both immune function and neurological health. ECLIPSE’ PM™ provides a unique combination of antioxidants, Cinchona bark extract, natural vitamin E, high levels of B vitamins, Turmeric, Choline, probiotics and active dry yeast.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
(Enclosed measure approximates 1.5 oz based on density of product.)
Adult Horses (900-1,100 lbs): Provide 1 measure (1.5oz) twice daily for 60 days. For lower maintenance level, provide 1 measure (1.5oz) daily for 120 days or continue as needed.
ECLIPSE’ PM™ provides several key antioxidants and ingredients to help stimulate a natural immune response. The high level of B vitamins help support normal neurological (brain/nerve) function. Eclipse'PM also helps support cellular health by reducing oxidative stress helping to protect body cells and tissue.
ECLIPSE’ PM™ is recommended to be used in conjunction with FDA approved EPM drug treatments during and up to 120 days post treatment or can be fed as needed/maintenance for neurological and immune support.
Magnesium (Mg) is a macro mineral that is frequently recommended for a wide range of equine health conditions. Magnesium helps to maintain normal muscle and nerve function, a healthy heart, healthy immune system and strong bones. Magnesium aids to regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Since a symptom of magnesium deficiency is agitation or anxiety, it is included in many calming supplements.
Lysine is an amino acid and the only one for which a requirement in the horse has been established by the NRC and used for the biosynthesis of proteins. This amino acid is often the key to improving protein availability and healthy muscle function.
Choline is recommended for supporting a healthy nervous system. Choline is a component of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Acetylcholine carries messages between neurons, which enables the brain to communicate with itself and the rest of the body.
Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that helps combat oxidative stress and supports a natural inflammatory response for overall health.
Cinchona Bark is recognized by scientific research to produce natural alkaloid quinine and its impact and support role in the presence of protozoa.
Black Pepper Extract: Contains a compound called Piperine, which has been shown to enhance the absorption of Turmeric. It also supports antioxidant activity.
Ester-C® (calcium ascorbate) is a unique patented ascorbate complex bound with calcium carbonate. Ester- C® is naturally processed in purified water without the use of alcohol or acetone solvents. This makes Ester-C® a more readily available, readily absorbed form of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect the tissues of the body and also important in the production of connective tissues like tendons and ligaments. Ester-C® has up to 4X more metabolic activity than standard vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
Grape Seed Extract (GSE) is rich in antioxidants to help support a healthy inflammatory response and cardiovascular health. It appears that the antioxidants in grape seed extract work cooperatively with Vitamin E to help neutralize free radicals.
Turmeric Extract is a concentrated source of Turmeric usually composed of 95% Curcuminoids.
Vitamin E (Natural): Natural E is approx. 2.5 times more bioavailable than synthetic vitamin E (4,000 IUs natural vitamin E approximates 10,000 IUs of synthetic vitamin E). Most studies/research indicate 8,000 IU’s -10,000 IU’s (or approx. 3,000-5,000 IU of Natural Vitamin E) during/post therapy for immune support. Vitamin E is considered the most important antioxidant and works closely with selenium to protect the body from the oxidative stress of exercise and illness. Found in high amounts in fresh pasture, levels begin to decay the moment pasture is cut for hay. That is why any horse that does not have access to grass, regardless of its activity level or health, would be a candidate for vitamin E supplementation. Horses are not very efficient in storing vitamin E and deficiency may be accelerated if the diet is deficient in selenium.
Zinc (Zn) is a micromineral involved in over 100 enzyme systems ranging from support of connective tissue formation and antioxidants to carbohydrate metabolism and immune system function. It is most recognized for its role in healthy skin and hooves.
Copper (Cu) is a micromineral that aids in the production of normal connective tissues including tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. As a component of many enzyme systems, it is also involved in making iron available to the body for blood, in producing skin and coat pigments, in proper nerve signaling and in repairing antioxidants.
Selenium is a trace mineral that along with vitamin E function together to help to protect body tissues from free radical damage that occurs during oxidation (the conversion of feedstuffs into energy). While some parts of the country have high levels of selenium in their soil and therefore the plants that grow there, selenium deficiency is not uncommon and reported in many states. Therefore, most horses may require supplementation to meet the NRC requirement of 1-3 mg/day, depending on activity level. *NRC upper safe limit approx. 20 mg/day in total diet.
The Vitamin B family is made up of several compounds that support many important roles in the body: protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism; energy production; proper nerve cell transmission, reproduction, and division (especially rapidly dividing ones such as red blood cells). B vitamins include thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12), choline, biotin, inositol and others are sometimes referred to as B-vitamins. For most of the B-vitamins, microorganisms in the large intestine make all the horse needs. Only thiamine and riboflavin have NRC dietary requirements. However, research suggests B-vitamin supplementation may be beneficial to horses with little access to fresh pasture and/or during any periods of stress (training, injury, travel, etc.)
Probiotics are live microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) that help promote healthy digestive function and support a healthy immune system. Often referred to as ‘good bugs’ they help break down ingredients/contents that the body normally can't, and help inhibit ‘bad bugs’ from growing.
Active Dry Yeast: Supports enzyme activity for fiber digestion in the hind gut and provides a direct source of nutrients to nourish good bacteria. Stabilizes digestive flora during periods of stress for overall health and performance.
Can my horse stay on E-Clipse'PM indefinitely or only 120 days?
MVP: It is recommended to feed the E-Clipse'PM at the rate of 1 scoop both AM & PM for the first 60 days. Thereafter, you may reduce to 1 scoop daily for 60 days or as needed for immune support. So yes, it is fine to feed indefinitely to provide immune support.
I just opened my E-Clipse'PM and it has a strong odor, is this normal?
MVP: Due to the high levels of the active ingredients in E-Clipse'PM it does have a slightly stronger aroma, especially when first opened. After a few days of being opened, the scent will fade a bit. Most horses eat it readily but if you are concerned we recommend leaving the bag open for a few days before feeding and then gradually introduce in to diet starting with a ½ serving working up to the full serving over the course of 3-4 days.
Love this product, my 26 year old horse is doing great on it and looks great!
Every since putting my gelding on this he is now placing in the 1D, doing and looking amazing! Every where we go I am told he looks like a copper Penny because of how much he shines! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
