Re: Is spirulina causing iron overload?

Everything you feed has iron in it. All the herbs might be overkill unless you have a specific reason for giving them. Peppermint can actually help chelate iron when prepared as a tea using 20 g of peppermint/liter of water and substituting that for all water consumed.  For a mini in cool weather that would be minimum 4 to 5 liters/day so 80 to 100 grams of peppermint.  Should mention here I tried this with an iron overloaded horse and it didn't work.

If you go here:

and click on the heading High ppm it will sort the herbs by iron content, highest first
