SwellDOWN

A stable first aid essential! SwellDOWN is a therapeutic clay poultice to quickly take heat out of inflammation, reducing swelling and overall leg soreness. Can be used on broken skin & easy to wash off.

Description

SwellDOWN’s special mixture of montmorillonite clay and unique therapeutic ingredients has a cooling effect on injuries often caused by hard knocks or jarring. The clay, used as a poultice, draws out heat and reduces swelling commonly generated at damaged sites to aid a more rapid recovery. It is fast, effective and an excellent tightener around knees, ankles and tendons.

SwellDOWN contains NO substances in concentrations that breach the rules of racing.

When do they need it?

  • After training, trialling and post-race
  • After exercise (especially on hard or heavy ground)
  • After events
  • Travelling
  • First sign of inflammation
  • Can be used to draw out stone bruises

How does it work?

The combination of wet clay, essential oils and minerals in SwellDOWN has a cooling effect on the skin. Heat produced by exercise or injury is drawn out at a rapid rate, limiting hypoxic (lack of oxygen) damage and reducing the risk of oedema (fluid retention) and muscle damage, thereby aiding recovery.

  • Magnesium Sulphate: Delivers the cooling drawing action to lessen pain.
  • Potassium Aluminium Sulphate: Works to ‘tighten’ the leg, keeping swelling and inflammation at a minimum.
  • Calcium Carbonate: Adjusts the poultice to the correct pH level.
  • Oil of Peppermint and Eucalyptus:
  1. Reduces muscle pain and inflammation
  2. Creates a cooling sensation; keeps horse is comfortable during treatment
  3. Antiseptic properties help to disinfect any minor cuts/abrasions present under poultice.
  • Glycerine: A humectant (retains moisture) which softens & moisturises the skin. Reduces itchiness.
  • Wet montmorillonite clay: Binds the actives together and keeps them wet, so effective for longer.
