Senior horses require special nutritional attention due to decreases in metabolic and digestive efficiencies that accompany the ageing process.
Taking theses changes into consideration, HYGAIN TRU CARE provides higher levels of nutrients that are essential to maintain health, body condition and general well-being in older horses.
HYGAIN TRU CARE is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
Cereals, Vegetable Protein Meals, Legumes, Legume Hulls, Beet Pulp, Rice Bran Oil, Di Calcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Lysine, Magnesium Oxide, Prebiotic (MOS), Natural Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Bio-Available Selenium, Yucca Schidigera, Glycosaminoglycans, HYGAIN Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.
Natural Vitamin E – This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma, further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.
Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
HYGAIN RBO Equine Performance Oil – HYGAIN RBO Equine Performance Oil® is a blend of rice bran oil, omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes.
Glycosaminoglycans – For the maintenance of healthy joints and mobility. Biotin – Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers and veterinarians.
Prebiotic – Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN TRU CARE have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.
Super Fibres – As the name suggests super fibres, such as Beet Pulp, Soy Hulls and Legume Hulls are products that contain highly digestible (soluble) fibre with very little non-digestible fibre. Beet pulp is fermented in the large intestine of the horse similar to hay, pasture and chaff and does not produce rapid changes in blood sugar (Fizz) like grain. Beet pulp provides digestible energy ranging between that of good quality hay and grains, sourcing energy from soluble fibre as opposed to energy from starches and sugars. Consequently, it is ideal for all equines, especially for horses where weight gain is desired as it increases the caloric content and energy density in the diet.
