BSC Gastro is an advanced gastric and digestive supplement for horses. A highly concentrated blend of natural plant extracts, BSC Gastro works to support healing and mucous production in the stomach, offering an effective long term solution that does not compromise digestion.
All horses are at risk of gastric stress and discomfort, especially those in competition. Factors including stress, travel, intermittent feeding, stabling and strenuous exercise will all put your horse at greater risk.
BSC Gastro is an innovative supplement from the British Seabuckthorn Company (BSC). Based on their original SeaBuckthorn for horses, BSC Gastro has been boosted with a number of additional plant extracts, carefully selected for their ability to support the stomach lining.
SeaBuckthorn is a natural plant extract which nourishes the stomach and digestive tract to support healing and acid defence. In addition to the original SeaBuckthorn equine supplement, BSC Gastro contains added pulp and seed oils to boost the Omega-7 and Omega-3 content, and leaf extract for added anti-oxidant potency.
BSC Gastro also contains a spectrum of other valuable plant extracts. Liquorice root extract contains a number of active compounds, including glabridol and other flavonoids. Grape seed extract is a source of procyanidins, which are also the major active component in turmeric. Procyanidins on their own are not well absorbed, to improve absorption, BSC Gastro contains black cumin seed oil which is also a source of thymoquinone. Finally BSC include apple fibre, a great source of pectin which has been shown to support a healthy gastric lining in horses subjected to food deprivation.
While BSC Gastro is a targeted gastric supplement, it has the added benefit of providing nutritional support for the hind gut and also acts as a prebiotic, helping to maintain a favourable balance of bacteria in the digestive system.
BSC Gastro is a highly palatable liquid supplement formulated for horses at risk of gastric discomfort. It is best fed every day, but the feeding level can be adjusted to suit requirement and varying management factors such as travel or stabling.

“BSC-Gastro is a great product, I would not be without it!
It really isn’t difficult to support a product that you know works! There are so many of these type of products on the market it can be baffling to know which one to go for and whether they really work BUT there is a reason why I have used Nupafeed for now six years, because it does and proven time and time again!”
“We were having huge problems with our horse Flo, not only did see look awful in her coat she felt awful. You could bearly touch her passed her shoulder without her trying to either kick or bite you. We feared she had stomach/hind gut discomfort. Having spoken to the incredibly helpful Nupafeed team they sent me BSC Gastro and wow what a difference it made. After just 2 weeks she was a much happier horse and we could touch her without such a big reaction. Over the next 2 months her coat looked the best I’d ever seen it and she became less and less sensitive and so much more relaxed, not only in mind but also body putting on weight for the first time in over a year. I would highly recommend this product as it certainly did the trick for my horse.
Many thanks for giving me the opportunity to try this product on my horse it’s made such a difference to her life and mine! We now have her and another of my horses on BSC SeaBuckthorn.”
“Thrilled with the results of BSC Gastro as Choral Chlan always had dietary problems last year. We put him on BSC-Gastro and since then, to date (May 2017), he has won 5 races and has been placed nearly every time in ten starts. Since we introduced him to the product he has shown considerable improvement in his general well-being.”
“Absolutely swear by BSC Gastro. Started using it on one of my old horses that has constantly struggled with his gut, touch wood he has not had a problem since being on Gastro and is looking and feeling the best he ever has. He is also a very fussy eater however happily eats the Gastro liquid in his feed.”
