About the Event
Oral plasma is a highly researched, yet relatively unknown, technology for the horse world. With over 500 published studies, oral plasma has proven itself time and time again to support health and healing in the gut. The gut is responsible for 70% of the immune system, digestive functions, and is connected to the brain by superhighway called the vagus nerve. When the gut isn’t right, your horse isn’t right.
