What is HemaSol?
HemaSol is a herbal blend designed for daily supplementation to support vascular function in horses during exercise. Exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) in horses is often referred to as a “bleeding” or '’bleeding attack'’. EIPH is most common in racing horses such as American Quarter horses, Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds. It also occurs in disciplines where horses are exercising at a high intensity like polo ponies, barrel racers, reining horses, cutting horses, eventers and show jumpers.
About the Ingredients
Hawthorne Berry Powder may support normal vascular dilation.
Vitamin A - to support blood vessel wall integrity
Magnesium - is added in several forms to balance the calcium, potassium and iron levels
Vitamin K - is included to support blood clotting

Signs of EIPH (exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage)
Unless a horse has severe EIPH, with blood present at the nostrils, the only definitive diagnosis can be made by endoscopic examination of the trachea.
However subtle signs may be:
• Frequent swallowing and coughing in the immediate post-exercise recovery period
• Poor appetite post-performance
• Reduced performance
