Is there a possibility of a “positive” test while using SU-PER GastroShield?
SU-PER GastroShield contains "herbal" type ingredients, that are generally discouraged by the USEP regulating body. Licorice is one of these herbs, as licorice in most forms may contain Eugenol - which is a banned substance that USEF claims to have anti-inflammatory properties.
SU-PER Gastroshield: however, contains a specific type of licorice known as Deglycyrrhized Licorice (DGL). Our DGL is guaranteed to be Eugenol-free, and therefore should not result in a positive test.
Although we maintain our product is okay to give and will not test positive, the USEF and other equine organizations are constantly updating their rules and testing methods, so if you have any concern that SU-PER GastroShield may in fact be deemed as restricted or prohibited by the equine organization you may be involved with, we recommend you withdraw for use of this product no less than 14 days prior to the event. If you require gastic support in the period leading up to an event, it is safe to use basic antacids such as calcium or magnesium for this period.
Amount to give: Give 1 ounce twice daily or 1 ounce each mealtime. Give 1/2 ounce twice daily for maintenance.
