What is TurmerItch™?
A skin and coat supplement that is absorbed into the blood stream rather than applied topically. The active ingredients in TurmerItch™ support biting insect repulsion and help maintain reduced sensitivity as demonstrated during trials with the supplement over a 12-month period.
What is Sweet Itch in horses?
Sweet Itch in horses is caused by the bites of female biting midges.
Sweet itch in horses is caused by an allergic reaction to the protein in the saliva of these female biting midges. This causes the immune system to attack its own cells and leads to the extreme reaction.
Using TurmerItch™ as part of sweet itch management is a new approach which proved to be very effective in trials. By introducing into the dietary system it can help to optimise digestive health, the microbiome and gut integrity, thus the allergenic contribution to the itch threshold is reduced; subsequent challenges from biting insects may then fall below the threshold, so helping to reduce the scratching and damage to the coat and skin.
TurmerItch™ combines key specialist ingredients including Neem, Red Bush Tea and Chamomile, to help provide relief from itching and soothe the skin by promoting a healthy skin and coat. TurmerItch™ also contains Turmeric and Cooked Linseed to help produce a high shine to the horse’s coat.
