Nutritional support for the immune system.
The effectiveness of the body’s immune system depends on its ability to react fast, and on the immune cells’ ability to proliferate rapidly. St. Hippolyt’s Hippomun contains a range of approved nutritional components such as selected brewer’s yeast and grape seed extract horses particularly need under stress.
Supporting the body’s natural defences
Some horses are even more susceptible to bacteria, viruses, moulds or parasites. They have a poor immune system. Vaccinations, stress or periods with increased risks of infection are an additional challenge for the immune system. Typical examples are the weaning of foals, stables with a high fluctuation, the show or breeding season, as well as transports or changes of stable.
Diet-related conditioning of scavenger cells
The scavenger cells (macrophages) are the immune system’s “Rapid Reaction Force”, killing and “eating” all pathogens that are identified in the blood as damaging or exogenous substance. Feeding tests showed that special brewer’s yeast extracts are especially beneficiary for the development of scavenger cells which considerably strengthens the immune system at the same time.
High-quality protein derived from oil seeds, algae and brewer’s yeast, as well as omega-3 fatty acids from linseed oil and linseed protect the macrophages and the lymphocytes and provide the immune cells with the necessary building blocks. Selected brewer’s yeast extracts as basic nutrients for the scavenger cells play a key role in the equine immune system.

6 g per 100 kg body weight per day, continue feeding for 7 days. Then take a break for 3 weeks. Than repeat the feeding interval. If necessary the first days of feeding could be doubled to 14 days. Just mix this concentrate under the usual daily feed. Schema: 7 day feed – 21 days break – 7 days feed – 21 days break – 7 days feed – 21 days break or 14 days feed – 21 days break – 7 days feed – 21 days break – 7 days feed
