    Default Anyone believe that Succeed supplement works for "digestive health"?

    I can't find any clinical studies, the chiro thinks my horse's "stomach points" are sore so may have ulcers, barn mgr suggested I try succeed. Am planning to use ulcergard too, just wondering if Succeed is good for the longer term. I don't usually believe in stuff without seeing clinical data, so was wondering what others think/have experienced.

    love the stuff! Have used it on occasion with various horses we own all with good results. The most impressive were with my daughter's pony who had a long drawn out run in with inflammatory bowel disease....it just seemed to add a bloom to their coat and appetite. Best results tho with consistent use over a period of months.

    PLENTY of people believe it works.

    That's an entirely different thing than whether it actually DOES work.

    From what I understand, Succeed targets the hindgut, not the stomach's ulcers. I treated my horse with a course of Gastrogard for 3 weeks for suspected ulcers in the stomach (based on his behavior - I didn't have an endoscopy done) and then started him on Succeed. He's been on it for almost a year now. Whether it was the Gastrogard or a combination of the 2, I'll never know. But he hasn't exhibited any 'classic' signs of ulcers since. I might be pouring my $$ down the drain, but I'm going to continue him on the succeed.

    I guess I set myself up for that one...
