May be just what your horse needs
HVS Animal Health introduces new Equi-Gold™, a nutritional supplement containing Biotin, vitamin E, chelated Zinc, Manganese and Copper in a rice bran base.
A water soluble ‘B’ vitamin essential for normal development and function of epidermal tissues (i.e. skin, hooves and hair coat). Research has shown that dietary supplementation of biotin is essential for proper hoof health.
The role of Vitamin E in the body is essential for muscle development and is able to prevent muscle degeneration. Vitamin E is important in making red blood cells resistant to haemolysis or breakdown. Vitamin E is a lipid-soluble antioxidant that protects highly unsaturated fatty acids in cell membranes from attack by free radicals and peroxides.
Optimin® Chelated Minerals
Zinc An element involved in many protein, enzyme and hormone functions. Zinc is also involved in proper anion-cation balance, immune function, growth,
keritinization and hardening of epidermal tissues (i.e.hooves).
An element which is important for joint health, serving as a cofactor and activator for the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans, compounds with
water-structuring properties that provide compressive resilience within the joint.
An element needed for lipid metabolism, immune and nervous system function, reproduction, cellular respiration and pigmentation. Copper is also involved in hoof health by encouraging proper cross-linking of connective tissue, osteoblastic activity and calcification of the cartilage matrix.
Providing these three minerals in a chelated form ensures more of the metal is available for these functions together with improved breeding efficiency.
