ViteX Plus is a clinically trialled and tested supportive supplement for horses and ponies, formulated and recommended for pituitary health, metabolic function and to maintain a balanced endocrine system whatever your horses age.

As part of her BSc degree course in herbal medicine our herbalist was required to undertake clinical studies. Hilary took the opportunity to trial a single herb Vitex agnus castus on a group of 50 elderly ponies. In response to the findings of this trial she then formulated Vitex Plus. Owners have reported excellent results with this mix especially with older horses and ponies who struggle to shed their coats in Spring/Summer.

Hilary Self Bsc MNIMH explains the Vitex Plus formula and the herbs in the mix.

 At 3 x 50ml scoops per day, 2.2lb should last approx 23 days, costing approx $2.26 per day

My 7 yr old Quantock pony was diagnosed with Cushings in September 2012 as a 6 year old. The vet said he wasn't treatable and was pushing me to Euthanase him. I am a Veterinary Nurse and was determined not to let my 6yr old horse down. He started drug therapy immediately and I emailed the experts at Hilton herbs for any help and advice they could offer. We started him on Rest and Recover Gold (Rest Easy USA) and Cush X (Vitex Plus) and the results have been incredible. A hot headed youngster became cool and calm on his 8 months of box rest and his body, coat, lameness and feet condition improved dramatically, and is still improving. He has now been out grazing like a normal horse for the last 3 months. I canít thank Hilton Herbs enough for their help and support at such a difficult time, and can only rate these two products, and the company very highly. Literally a life saver.

How much do I have give? The amount of herbs you need to give is generally dependent on the height of your horse, with some allowance for type. Full instructions will be found on the packaging but if you have any queries at all please do contact our Helpline  email helpline@hiltonherbs.com  for more information. The quantity of herbs added to your horse or pony's feed can be slightly increased or decreased, depending on the circumstances. Very often a lower maintenance dose can be sufficient for a horse or pony that is going to be kept on the herbs long-term. Remember, like humans, all horses and ponies are individuals.

The drug, Pergolide, that is used for horses and ponies with Cushing's Disease is one of the drugs used for people with Parkinson's disease. Pergolide is a dopaminergic drug, ie it increases the uptake of dopamine by the receptors in the brain.
