How does BetaMARE work? Owning a mare often involves a rollercoaster of emotions – for both the mare and the owner! A mare’s mood swings are typically accompanied by irritability, muscular tension, erratic behaviour patterns and a generally uncooperative attitude. This quintessential ‘mare-ish’ behaviour can cause disruptions to training and competition schedules, as some mares become reactive, hard to handle or unfocused in their work. Chasteberry has a long traditional history of use to help balance behaviour fluctuations in mares. Supplementation with chasteberry can help improve the mare’s mood, aiding relaxation and cooperation.
What makes BetaMARE unique? A common problem with feeding raw herbs (whether whole, dried or powdered) is the variation between batches. The level of actives in raw herbs can be influenced by a range of factors such as stage of growth, season and environmental conditions (soil type, pH, water, etc). So, it is difficult to determine an effective dose unless a standardised herbal extract is used. For this reason, Kelato use a concentrated, standardised chasteberry extract in BetaMARE to ensure consistency and efficacy between product batches.
