New research proves GastroAID Recovery’s effectiveness for ulcer-prone horses

Not only is GastroAID Recovery already supported by one peer-reviewed clinical trial but now there are TWO!

When you ask the questions, we listen! The top three questions consistently asked about gut health supplements for use in horses with, or carrying a history of ulcers, are:


  1. Is this product backed by science?”
  2. Will this supplement do what it says it will?”, and
  3. What evidence is there to prove it works?”


Kelato is the ONLY company that can confidently answer all of these. And here is why GastroAID Recovery is the ONLY supplement you can trust to manage the ongoing health of your ulcer-prone horse.

1. GastroAID Recovery is backed by science!

Not only is GastroAID Recovery already supported by one peer-reviewed clinical trial but now there are TWO!

GastroAID Recovery is now the only supplement on the market with 2 peer-reviewed, clinical trials supporting its use!” says Prof Dr Ben Sykes BSc BVMS MS MBA DipACVIM PhD FHEA.


2. What evidence is there to support GastroAID Recovery?

New research shows GastroAID Recovery reduced the recurrence rate of squamous ulcers.

A recent study showed the impact of stopping omeprazole and the use of GastroAID Recovery on the recurrence of ulcers in a high-risk population of racing Thoroughbreds.

The authors found:

  • The rate of recurrence of squamous ulcers was greater in horses that had stopped the use of omeprazole 3 days before a race than those that stopped just on race day
  • Squamous ulcers returned to pre-treatment levels in as little as 3 days
  • AND when GastroAID Recovery was fed to these horses the recurrence rate of squamous ulcers reduced from 83% in Part 1 to 43% in Part 2 of the study


Why is this research important?

Now, we not only know the impact of stopping important medications like omeprazole on stomach health, but we also have another tool in our toolbox to support horses with ulcers.

The more options we have to take the best care of our horses the better!


3. Will GastroAID Recovery do what it says it will?

GastroAID Recovery is the ONLY product on the Australian market with its unique formulation.

Heard world-leading EGUS expert Dr Ben Sykes talk about “Alkaline Slime” in gut health supplements? Well, GastroAID Recovery is the only supplement that has it!

A blend of the perfect amount of pectin, lecithin and antacids creates the FAMOUS “Alkaline Slime” that is found only in GastroAID Recovery.

The ingredients act as coating agents which are key for ulcer-prone horses, and they work by forming a barrier over the stomach wall to help:

  • Protect from acid burn
  • Buffer stomach pH to reduce irritation to the lining
  • Strengthen the mucosal lining


GastroAID Recovery also supports hindgut health. It includes a unique Agrimos® prebiotic and Levucell SC® S.cerevisiae SC l-1077 probiotic which work together to help:

  • Reduce lactic acid in the hindgut (stabilise pH)
  • Stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria
  • Stabilise the hindgut microflora balance in favour of good bacteria
  • Optimise feed conversion efficiency (great for improving body condition)
