Balanced Nutrition, Improved Lifestyle
What does NutriMix have to offer?
→Vitamins with Essential Trace and Macro Minerals With a variety of water- and fat- soluble vitamins NutriMix provides complete support of the vitamin needs of most horses. Just as important as vitamins for total nutrition, our mineral levels aid in successful breeding, sound growth, and good health in mature horses. Balanced nutrition is crucial to ensure proper absorption and utilization of minerals in the horse’s body, we specially formulate our products to ensure each required level of nutrient is being met before moving on to the next step. In the case of nutrition, more is not necessarily always better. Unless the horse has a solid foundation to build on, many of the nutrients horse owners introduce will not be properly absorbed and will be wasted at higher levels.
→Antioxidant Support Over a horse’s lifetime, the state of antioxidant and immune defenses will be a vital factor in the quality of life and performance. Most horses today depend on hay, rather than natural forage, as a dietary mainstay. Since most Vitamin E content is rapidly lost after hay is cut horses are at a higher risk for antioxidant deficiencies. NutriMix utilizes high levels of Vitamins A, E and Selenium for broader antioxidant nutrition to the horse, when working together the variety of antioxidant supporters are usually more effective than feeding large single levels of one antioxidant alone.
→Digestive Aids: Yeast Cultures and Enzyme Packs As most horse owners already know, the horse’s digestive tract was designed for smaller amounts of food over a longer, steady period of time. We fight nature with our typical morning/night stall feeding routines and often create problems for ourselves. With stall feeding we battle incomplete digestion and a substantially higher amount of waste. The yeast cultures found in NutriMix aid in the digestive process by creating good bacteria in the gut that help to digest food more efficiently, while the enzymes work to break food down more quickly to prepare it for the digestive process. NutriMix also introduces Mananoligosaccharides, which serve as a “meal” for the good bacteria and aid in creating an all-around healthy digestive environment. While more of a passive nutritional path, these nutrients are still crucial to the horse being able to assimilate and utilize all that they eat with minimal waste.
→Healthy Hooves and Coats NutriMix includes levels of Biotin that are higher than many specifically designed hoof products on the market today. To promote hoof growth and overall healthy hoof condition we also include significant amounts of the amino acid DL-Methionine, which is found in high levels in the hoof and hair and is often times found coupled with Biotin in hoof supplements.
→Limiting Amino Acids Lysine is the most important amino acid and a critical building block for all protein found in the body. Unfortunately a horse’s body cannot create Lysine, so it must be introduced through feed or supplement. Using a Lysine supplement 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 and antibodies. Similar to Lysine, DL-Methionine and Threonine must also be supplemented into a horse’s diet as they cannot be naturally produced and are key factors in protein and muscle development, ability to maintain muscle mass, production of a necessary component of the mucus that lines the digestive tract, and important in the hoof and hair health. DL-Methionine and Threonine cannot be absorbed by the body if Lysine requirements are not satisfied first.
→Folic Acid Is most well-known for it’s importance in pregnancy and infancy. It’s most important functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the involvement of DNA synthesis, which are crucial during pregnancy. Folic Acid can be depleted from the horse’s system during intense exercise or prolonged sulfa drug therapy. NutriMix contains necessary levels of Folic Acid to provide benefit to the mare during pregnancy, and aids in the overall health of the foal.
→Benefits of B-Vitamins Necessary for energy production and proper growth, NutriMix includes high levels of Riboflavin, Niacin, and Folic Acid. Also included at high levels are Pyridoxine, which is a vitamin not readily stored in the horse’s system, but whose deficiencies lead to muscle weakness, poor hair coat and decreased immune health. Pantothenic Acid which is necessary to carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Also necessary to carbohydrate metabolism is Thiamine, which stimulates appetite and has been proven to have a calming effect on the horse.
→All-Natural Formula: As with all the HylEquine products NutriMix is made of all-natural ingredients and contains no chemicals, hormones or synthetics. Our all-natural approach provides a more bio-available source of nutrition for your horse, it’s just one more thing we can do to ensure your horse is getting the highest level of quality and nutrition available. If you’re going to take the time to feed a supplement we want to make sure your horse is actually able to utilize it to it’s fullest extent!
