Respire (Spirulina, MSM, Jiaogulan, Vit.C, Turmeric)


Jini Says +

Although this supplement is targeted towards horses with respiratory issues and allergies, if you look at the ingredients (jiaogulan, spirulina, MSM, vit.C & turmeric), you will see that it is also an ideal immune strengthening and anti-inflammatory supplement too!

Note too that the herbs and active ingredients are on a base of omega-3 Flax and Chia seed. The flax has been milled using Micronized Milling; which slices the seeds at a low temperature, thereby leaving the fat cells intact, so there is no risk of rancidity.

Flax and chia provide the amino acids missing from hay/grass, along with anti-inflammatory Omega-3, and improve intestinal peristalsis (helping to prevent colic).

This is a great supplement to top-dress on High Point Daily Nutrients for Grass/Hay Fed Horses - especially during the season your horse is prone to immune-based issues or respiratory problems

JIAOGULAN is a Chinese herb from the gourd family of plants - it is sometimes called "Southern Ginseng". Humans use it for diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and improving heart function. In horses, it's known for its ability to reduce vascular (arteries, veins) inflammation, so it's being used for conditions like laminitis and raising blood circulation within the hoof.

Jiaogulan is also used for its ability to increase nitric oxide production in blood vessel cells; acting as a vasodilator, increasing blood flow throughout the body.

This has potential benefits for laminitic horses, helping to promote repair of the hoof. And is commonly given to horses affected by metabolic conditions such as Insulin Resistance (IR) and Cushing’s disease (PPID). It is also used in performance horses to improve the maintenance and repair of muscles, tendons and ligaments.

MSM is ideal for joint health, arthritis and hoof integrity.

TURMERIC is a powerful anti-inflammatory (you can also apply powdered turmeric topically as a paste).

VITAMIN C is another powerful immune strengthener.

SPIRULINA is a blue-green algae cyanobacteria.
"It has the ability to modulate immune functions and exhibits anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the release of histamine by mast cells. Multiple studies investigating the efficacy and the potential clinical applications of Spirulina in treating several diseases have been performed and a few randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews suggest that this alga may improve several symptoms and may even have an anticancer, antiviral and antiallergic effects."

Spirulina has also been shown to improve metabolic health and promote weight loss in horses with equine metabolic syndrome (EMS).

If you grind whole flax seeds at home, you may notice that rancidity will begin within a few days if not refrigerated (evidenced by the paint-like aroma). While whole flax seed, on the other hand, is very stable.

Traditional milling processes involved crushing, rolling, burr mills and hammer mills - as their names suggest, all these methods are very aggressive, creating heat from the friction and rupturing the fat cells within the flax. Thus the flax is destabilized and the released fat/oil rapidly leads to rancidity.

HorseTech uses a Micronized milling process with their flax, which uses low temperature and a high speed cutter that SLICES the seeds so the fat remains intact within the meal.

Seed selection is also important as green seeds are prone to spoilage - and these are removed before milling.

The result is a milled flax that has not been damaged by heat and the fat cells haven't been ruptured, thus it is stable at room temperature, similar to whole flaxseed, for 2 years.


For equine use only. Recommended to support healthy respiratory and lung function for horses in work/exercise.

Cautions: Safe use in pregnant animals or animals intended for breeded has not been proven. If animal's condition worsens, discontinue use and consult your veterinarian. An examination from a veterinarian is recommended prior to using this product.

Warnings: For animals use only (equine). In case of accidental overdose, contact a health professional immediately. This product should not be given to animals intended for human consumption [due to MSM in product]. Should not be used in conjunction with Phenylbutazone ("Bute"), Flunixin, Meglumine (Banamine), or other vasodilator drugs. This is because Jiaogulan is a potent vasodilator.
