[RC] [Consider This] Ginseng aids vaccination response in horses - Jan 12008 - Merri

Horsetalk.co.nz - Full story

Ginseng, revered as a human tonic for centuries, has been found to have beneficial properties in horses.

Work undertaken at the Equine Research Centre at the University of Guelph in Canada has shown that low doses of ginseng in the lead-up to an inoculation improves a horse's antibody response when they receive a vaccination for equine herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1).

The American ginseng (Panax quinquefolium) made the vaccination more effective.
