L-Lysine For Hoof Growth
Here is a great testimonial from one of our customers who gave her horse L-Lysine to repair hoof wall after a large abscess was removed by the vet.
L-Lysine is a critical building block for all protein in the body. It is an essential amino acid that cannot be created by the body, so it must be obtained by food or supplements. Grains and grasses are considered inadequate sources of Lysine. Using L-Lysine supplementation at times of stress is key to calcium absorption, building muscle protein, boosting the immune system and supporting the body’s production of hormones, enzymes, antibodies.
Hi Dr DePaolo, I wanted to share this with you since you saw this palomino mare in the very beginning.
It only took 5 months to grow this much hoof out on L-Lysine (accompanied by laser/theraplate therapy). Thank you for making such great supplements! -Aimee
Lysine is also recommended to help strengthen brittle hooves and promote a good hair coat. Brewers Yeast and fenugreek powder are added to make the Lysine more palatable to your horse. For more information or to purchase L-Lysine, please visit our website.
