Inflammations, tissue degeneration and a reduced re generation capacity - many horses suffer from the succeeding consequences of an unbalanced d iet. Laminitis, muscle tensions, cough, skin and metabolic problems can make a horse’s life a misery. Nutritional deficiencies encourage the process of tissue inflammation and ti ssue degeneration with many a horse. The good news: a diet rich in herbs and vital nutrients will increase chances to maintain cells and organs healthy and will counteract an early degener ative process.
Nutritional building blocks to counteract diet-related inflamm ations of the extremities, the back, the respiratory and digestive system and of the reproducti ve organs as well as to prevent loss of vitality and reduced regeneration capacities.
- glyconutrients derived from marine algae
- regulatory phytochemicals derived from nutrition herbs a nd linseed
- fruit components, spice plants, vitamins and trace elements g uarantee an antioxidant cell protection
Deficiency-related impact on the metabolic system
Years of deficiency of vital nutrients take a toll on the metabol ism and on the immune system, resulting in reduced physical performances, reduced regeneration capacities and in a susceptibility to inflammations and infections of the extremities, skin and mucosa. Particularly hard-working co mpetition horses and breeding stock, older horses and all horses exclusively fed with hay and oats are exposed to these risks. A lack in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, glycoproteins and trace minerals can delay tissue h ealing and thus lead to the development of chronic complaints
The nutritional composition of brown algae is of particular i nterest to equine nutrition as their walls contain special sugar compounds (glyconutrients) that are very similar to those found in the outer membrane layers of mammalian cells. Their richness in natural minerals, vitamins, amin o acids, carbohydrates and phytochemicals make marine algae extremely effective in counteracting inflammat ory metabolic and immune deficiencies.
Micronutrients derived from fruit and herbs
Fruit and many spice herbs contain a different range of an tioxidants, counteracting the aggressive influence of radicals on the metabolism in many ways. In combination with vi tamin E derived from plant oil, omega-3 fatty acids and added trace elements, these micronutrients support the res istance of the tissue and the whole organism.
