A complete vitamin and mineral supplement for your horse
“As a horse owner myself, I recognize how hard it is to find a complete supplement that has everything that your horse needs without a bunch of additives that your horse is better off without,” explains Mark DePaolo, DVM.
Essential Vitamin and Mineral Supplement was specifically formulated with the proper ratios of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, prebiotics, probiotics and electrolytes to promote the overall health of your horse. It can help improve:
- Immune function
- Provide digestive support
- Grow strong hooves
- Aid in muscle function
Essential is ideal for all life stages of horses.
Dr. DePaolo feels the most important ingredient in Essential is Lysine. It stops the replication of certain viruses, which helps prevent Rhino and neurologic herpes virus. Coupled with Vitamin C it acts as a powerful immune booster. The specific combination of high quality lysine with biotin, methionine and sulfur supports strong, healthy, fast growing hooves. Essential contains high enough levels of lysine to assist in stabilizing blood cortisol levels.
He goes on to say, “In my practice I see so many horses that are selenium deficient. Many owners complain about their horses showing symptoms of body soreness, tying up, resistance to exercise and colic. Essential is formulated using only Selenium Yeast, the most Bio-available form of all Selenium Sources.”
Brewer’s Yeast is another key ingredient. Two important benefits of feeding it are: Better Digestion and Improved Immune function. Brewer’s yeast is high in the mineral Chromium which is very important in the stabilization of blood sugar levels.
Essential is pelleted and mixed with small amounts of alfalfa for increased palatability. This makes it easier for owners with endocrine compromised horses by eliminating the need to hide supplements in any type of “grain”.
