What is mare's milk
Mare's milk comes from female horses and is secreted during lactation to feed their foals. At Equilac, we have the utmost respect for the mares and foals so our mare's milk is produced by Belgian milking farms with limited production; this guarantees a high-quality, animal-friendly product.
The very ingredients that are found in mare's milk is what makes it helpful with certain health issues. More to the point, it's not just the ingredients alone, yet how they work together. Mare's milk contains elements such as lysozyme, which works as an antimicrobial. It also has a glycoprotein called lactoferrin, which works to help with iron absorption and has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and antibacterial agents. These two components found in mare's milk work as prebiotics and limit the growth of bad bacteria found in our gastrointestinal system. It has plenty of monosaturated fatty acids, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D. The polysaturated fatty acids found in mare's milk contain omega 3 and omega 6 - both of which bioactive peptides helpful as anti-inflammatory agents.

Mare's milk as natural psoriasis treatment
When treating psoriasis, the healthiest and best results can be achieved by treating the skin from the inside out, and by fighting the cause rather than the symptoms alone. While it’s true that it will take longer to see or feel results compared to topical hydrocortisone creams, the results in the long term will be much better and healthier for your body. These days, everyone has probably tried, or is still trying hydrocortisone creams. However, these types of cream can only lessen your outward symptoms, and are dangerous to your health if you use them on a long-term basis. The epidermis thins out and the effects decrease the longer you use these creams, forcing you to up your doses. And that’s never a good idea…
Mare’s milk is not yet prescribed by doctors and dermatologists because it’s actually too scarce to be able to treat everyone suffering from psoriasis. Despite being a low profile product, in recent years German scientists have studied the benefits of mare’s milk. In their study, they concluded that consuming mare’s milk for at least six months can effectively reduces the symptoms of psoriasis in as much as 62% of all users. In general, the first improvements can be noted after 2 to 6 weeks of taking Equilac. Some consumers might experience a worsening of their symptoms during the first few weeks, but this is absolutely normal and nothing to worry about. Your body has to adjust to changes for the better, and that can take some time. We recommend only using our product if you are serious about your treatment and intend to use Equilac in its intended way. This means starting with a treatment of at least 3 consecutive months, in order to allow the mare’s milk to do its thing.
Research on mare's milk
The most important studies of the soothing effects of mare's milk on the human skin were published by the Friedrich-Schiller University of Jena, Germany, in the context of a large-scaled poll among both doctors and patients, that was conducted in 2009. The University of Jena has been studying the benefits of mare's milk as a supportive treatment for over ten years. The scientists believe that the special proteins contained in mare's milk - especially lysozymes, lactoferrin, secreted hemoglobin A and lactose derived from the milk - stimulate the intestinal flora and the immune system of the patients. Their published studies on the influence of mare's milk on dermatitis and other chronic inflammatory diseases point out the value of a long-term intake of mare's milk (at least six months).
