Devil's Claw and ulcers

I was wondering about using a product like BL pellets for our 30 year old gelding but he has a history of ulcers. I had heard somewhere that Devil's claw is not good for horses with ulcers but now I just warning against feeding to pregnant mares. Anyone know more about this?

I will also be starting him on a good joint supplement once I figure out which one would be best.

I know devils claw is a good anti-inflammatory. I have a horse that gets a reaction to something in the pasture (have not found it yet) but he gets small bumps all over his body and his legs and sheath would swell. We would give him a mixture of devils claw and yucka (sp) root and it would relieve his discomfort and really reduced the swelling. I have not heard anything about cautions for preg horses or with ulcers. But, my gelding was not pregnant and he does not have ulcers:roll:

My herbalist friend (owns a company that produces herbal products for horses) told me that Devil's Claw can irritate ulcers or even cause ulcers with long-term use.

Also, it is recommended in human medicine that it not be taken by people with ulcers
