Gelatin is the name for cooked collagen which is the most abundant protein found in our body. It is primarily made up of the amino acids glycine and proline. Supports a healthy stomach lining/gut mucosa by providing a natural protective barrier against the abrasiveness of gastric juices.
Glycine is one of the simplest amino acids and is classified as nonessential because it does not need to be supplied in the diet. However, this compact substance plays many essential roles in the body. Glycine makes up 35% of the protein collagen, is a key component in many metabolic reactions, and has a modulating effect on the immune system. It has also been shown to help promote a balanced digestive system.
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.
Valerian Root is an herb with specific actions on the nervous system. It helps maintain a healthy nervous system and balance in horses displaying nervous/anxious behavior. **Valerian root is a banned substance in many organizations, always check competition guidelines regarding its usage.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1) plays a role in supporting carbohydrate metabolism and normal muscle and nerve function. Thiamine supplementation has been shown to have a calming effect in horses displaying anxious/nervous behavior as a result thiamine deficiency and/or increased requirements.
Licorice is one of the most widely used herbs for people and animals in both Western and Chinese medicine. Sweet and soothing, it supports a natural inflammatory response in the gastric system. The deglycyrrhized form is preferred as it eliminates the risk of adverse side effects when plant is used whole.
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, especially in muscle tissue. Glutamine is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. It helps support a natural inflammatory response within the GI Tract as well as a healthy immune system.
Mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) are prebiotics composed of complex carbohydrate molecules, derived from the outer cell wall of S. cerevisiae, whose main components, β-glucans (mannoproteins) are known to support immune function. Prebiotics are sources of non-digestible, soluble fiber that serve as food for the probiotics or "good" bugs in the large intestine.
Tryptophan is an amino acid, converted by the body into serotonin, melatonin, and other hormones that transmit nerve signals in the brain. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter in the horse’s brain that helps promote feelings of well-being/contentment as well as balanced behavior.
Inositol is closely related to the B-vitamin family and is found in nearly every cell in the body. Because of its location within the cell membrane, it plays two major roles: transporting fats and assisting in nerve transmission. By participating in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter whose brain levels are known to be a factor in excess anxiety, inositol may be helpful in promoting a healthy balanced behavior in horses.
If my horse gets the Edge 180 paste, does he still need the Gastro-Plex paste?
MVP: No, the Edge 180 provides a similar immediate, yet temporary, soothing affect to the stomach during periods of stress as it provides a protective coating which helps to suppress the abrasiveness of the gastric juices. The Edge 180 also provides calming support ingredients as well as CBD to support a healthy nervous system, balanced behavior, mental alertness and relaxation (without drowsiness).
Exactly what my horses needed for ferrier day!
My 4 year old gelding was starting to get too amped up before our run and would throw the entire run off he went from 1D to 2D/3D I gave the paste yesterday 11/27/2021 and in 5 minutes he was calm and collected at the trailer! Before we ran he would WALK around the alley with his head dropped! He won the barrel race out of 187 runners with an American qualifier horse there!
My barrel racing gelding had always been more on the anxious side, especially in the alleyway. After a year of trying to work through things, I thought that there was nothing more I could do to help him. He would always have some hesitation going in, and then would never have a good first barrel due to our inability to work on a good approach in the alley (he was even scoped for bleeding right after a run and no sign of anything). I was advised to try the Edge 180 Paste and could not believe how well it worked. My first run trying it was at a large race with a ton of stress factors for him. He just walked down the long alley way and picked up a slow lope until I allowed him to run, staying on the bit the whole time. It did not stop him from working hard in the run either. I now refuse to go anywhere without the paste in the trailer. It has been the one thing to help my gelding take a moment to think through his anxieties rather than just getting wound up. I even let my friend give some to her futurity colt and it made a world of difference for him handling new environments. Love it!
When I haul my 5yr old to shows shes always worried about her surroundings and typically likes to buck or bolt from something (pretty much make me look like a fool) after trying the Edge 180 she has become a completely different horse. She rides around quietly and dont pay attention to the little stuff goes out there and does her job like shes suppose to... this is a must have in my trailer
This product is and WILL say in my trailer! Definitely a game changer for my boy! MVP has became a huge part of my boys life! The best product on the market!!
I have a 26 yr old OTTB that was in a pretty horrific trailier accident before I owned him. He has always been more on edge when hauling so I tried the Edge 180 for the first time on a 2 hour haul to the mountains. I was blown away by the difference it made. I am usually skeptical about calming products but this product is simply incredible! He was so quiet that I ended up stopping half way to make sure he was still back there. I have owned this horse for 12 years and this was the best hauling experience we have had. Will definitely be stocking my cabinets with Edge 180.
We have been using Gastroplex combined with Calmex-V for a while now until we discovered Edge-180. We compete in cowboy mounted shooting and my gelding has always had more nervous behavior. The Calmex-V helped keep him focused on his job and the Gastro-Plex kept his stomach health supported. We started using Edge-180 now that our oldest son has taken over my gelding and the results are truly amazing! He has never been so relaxed and focused on the task at hand. This gelding is the type who tries so very hard to please you, however his nervous behavior tends to get to him, he is also blind in one eye. With the help of Edge-180, he is now back flying through our shooting patterns and our soon will soon be competing off him as well! Thank you so much for an amazing product that is easy to use! We do use Edge-180 in conjunction with Bio-Balance Pellets. Both have shown stellar results!
