Nature as a source of power
Nature always finds a way. She is a brilliant problem solver, often with amazing strategies and a clear goal: to preserve life and create new life. This special power of nature is found in many types of plants and natural substances and makes nature a veritable treasure trove for health. We would like to introduce you to some natural substances whose benefits and health value have been known for a long time. Substances that have proven themselves many times over due to their positive nutritional-physiological properties for humans and animals. It is our job to recognize the benefits of these natural substances and to understand how we can best combine and use them for the health of the body.
Propolis - Heal with the power of the bee
Protection from intruders - Propolis is a putty resin that is made by bees from the buds of the bark of various trees, beeswax and their own saliva secretion. They use this resinous substance to seal their warm, damp hive and keep it free of germs and fungi. Bacteria, fungi, etc. that have already penetrated are inhibited in their development by propolis and at best killed.
Natural antibiotic - Propolis has been used as a natural antibiotic since ancient times. Due to the positive influence on the intestines, it supports the immune system and the defense against pathogens. However, if these have already caused damage, propolis supports the healing process because of its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect. The intestinal mucosa benefits from this and severe worm infestation can be effectively prevented.
Important to know - Propolis made water-soluble has a particularly high bioavailability. An optimal quality comes e.g. from nature reserves with correspondingly low levels of pollutants. Only high-quality propolis is used for the GladiatorPLUS milieu feeding - from bees that have their hive at a minimum height of 1,200 meters or live in nature reserves. The propolis contained in GladiatorPLUS is guaranteed to be free of harmful substances and pesticides.
Ginseng - The root of life
Adaptogenic effect - Ginseng can provide valuable services in adapting the body to various stress factors. The animal is supported in finding its balance again - mentally and physically. When changing stables or importing from abroad, it is easier for the animals with ginseng to put down roots in their new home.
Circulation - Ginseng strengthens the cardiovascular system, improves circulation and has a regulating effect on blood pressure. By increasing the oxygen content in the blood, it supports the animal's defense against infection and its ability to regenerate.
Removal - Ginseng can have a positive effect on metabolic processes by promoting the vitality and mobility of the stomach and intestines as well as natural detoxification. This is particularly important for animals with a drop in performance, coat problems, weaknesses in digestion, as well as in sport, in old age or under stress.
Turmeric - Indian gold
The superfood Turmeric has been an integral part of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for centuries. Today, turmeric is often referred to as a "miracle tuber" thanks to its countless positive properties. The golden-yellow root owes this to the substance curcumin, among other things.
Curcumin has been tested in hundreds of scientific studies. With success: Numerous studies point to the health-promoting potential of the root. This substance in particular is repeatedly said to have anti-inflammatory, cartilage-protecting and cholesterol-lowering properties in naturopathy.
Silicic acid - food for the connective tissue
The origin - Silicic acid is a compound of silicon and oxygen. In nature, it occurs in the supporting structures of diatoms. They lived 80 million years ago. Dead algae formed huge heaps on the seabed. The seas retreated and the deposited silicic acid is still mined today, e.g. in northern Germany.
Skin protection - The trace element silicon does a good job for the skin in order to better bind moisture and promote the development of stable connective tissue. Silicon improves the skin's metabolism. Animals with brittle or slow-growing horns and coats are strengthened from within by silicon.
Anti-inflammatory effect - Inflammatory pathogens such as bacteria or viruses are bound over the large surface of the silica and thus rendered harmless. Due to its anti-inflammatory effect, it is a proven home remedy for both internal (e.g. in the gastrointestinal tract) and external (e.g. sunburn, minor burns or insect bites) use.
Beetroot - the miracle tuber
Rich variety - The root vegetable owes its red color to the pigment betanin, which is one of the secondary plant substances and lowers the risk factor homocysteine for heart disease. Beetroot provides vitamins A, C, B and folic acid. It contains iodine, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus and iron. In addition, anthocyanins, which protect against cancer, and nitrate, which, among other things, lowers blood pressure. All its ingredients make the beetroot a miracle bulb.
Energy - Beetroot promotes the formation of mitochondria (power plants of the cell). The more of them there are in the organism, the more efficient it becomes and the slower it ages. Thus, the miracle tuber provides vitality.
Milk thistle and artichoke - guardian angels for the liver
Protective effect - Milk thistle protects, supports and strengthens the detoxification capacity of the liver. It promotes healthy fur growth through the formation of epithelia, strengthens the immune system and is a valuable source of fatty acids.
The artichoke contains vitamins, minerals, bitter substances and cell-protecting plant substances. It promotes digestion and helps with detoxification. This primarily protects the stomach and intestines, liver and gallbladder as well as the heart and circulatory system.
Regeneration – Milk thistle and artichoke stimulate liver metabolism in times of increased stress and promote the regeneration of liver cells in liver diseases. For example, they accelerate the elimination of breakdown products (such as bile acids, bilirubin) from the blood and urine. They should be used for inflammation, the administration of liver-stressing medication and to increase the protective barrier of the liver against toxic substances that can also be contained in the basic feed.
Blueberries - small but berry strong
Small, blue, strong: Blueberries are rich in vitamin C, potassium and zinc, folic acid and iron. The polyphenols they contain are almost more important. These are secondary plant substances, so-called bioflavonoids, which are found in blue, purple or red vegetables and fruits.
Valuable (whole) body protection. Thanks to a particularly concentrated occurrence, blueberries are one of the most valuable suppliers of these powerful antioxidants in nature. The little blue ones can thus protect against aging, degeneration and disease. They help to renew cells, fight inflammation and strengthen the immune system. In addition, regular consumption of blueberries has been shown to have a positive effect on blood pressure, which is due to the fact that the polyphenols keep the blood vessels flexible.
