Level Headed is a calming blend for the nervous, anxious horse. It’s designed to bring contentment, help steady frazzled nerves, provide greater comfort, peace and confidence.
This energetically balanced herbal combination includes gentle but effective herbs which nourish and help restore the nervous system, relieve irritability and tension, support the heart, tonify the reproductive system, lessen PMS symptoms, provide pain relief, support liver function and so much more.
Level Headed can also be used during potentially stressful events such as transitioning to a new barn, traveling, taking on a new herd mate or losing an old friend, separation, etc. For best results, start Level Headed about two weeks prior to the event. If a herd mate is suddenly lost, you can add this at anytime to help with the stress and hopefully avoid severe melancholy.
