Mentha spicata, more popularly known as spearmint or spear mint, is the type of mint for horses that Pegasus Health supplies. It has been shown to have great success in helping natural relaxation of the digestive tract muscles.
Spearmint is one of the most common garden herbs known for its strong and distinctive smell and taste. Spearmint for horses is often added to commercial horse feeds to mask less pleasant flavours and encourage fussy eaters.
The fact that many horses have been fond of mint sweets down the years would seem to prove that this strong flavour really appeals to them.
Mint has other very useful benefits as a horse supplement. Mint is a great digestive tonic. Many people have discovered the benefits of Mint teas to ease the digestive tract.
The digestive system of a horse is very sensitive and mint for horses is a gentle, natural way to support healthy function.
It also has a variety of other health-supporting properties.
Like all Pegasus Health’s herbs for horses, you can buy mint from us with confidence knowing that we source our herbs from a limited number of carefully chosen suppliers who follow thorough procedures to ensure that the herbs remain pure and uncontaminated.
Mentha spicata is native to much of Europe and southwest Asia, though because it was cultivated from centuries ago its exact natural origin is uncertain. The name 'spear' mint comes from its pointed leaf tips.
Essential oil from the leaves and flowers of spearmint is used to flavour products like toothpaste and mouthwash as well as in drinks, sweets and ice cream.
