Immune and Gut Defence
Probiotics to support a healthy gut and immune system
Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN GROTORQUE have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.
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.
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. RBO oil plays an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to its energy dense nature and is digested efficiently in the small intestine reducing the ‘sugar high’ associated with high grain diets. RBO promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.
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.
Probiotics are good bacteria that stimulate the activity of other good bacteria in the horse’s digestive tract. The addition of probiotics (live yeast) to equine diets improves fibre, phosphorus and calcium digestibility and increases gross energy, total lipid and amino acid absorption.
Formulated as a concentrate, HYGAIN GROTORQUE contains quality protein for fertility and reproduction, essential amino acids for muscle building, along with balanced levels of critical macro and micro trace minerals for sound skeletal development and Bio-Mos for optimum gut health.
The pellet in HYGAIN GROTORQUE provides the carrier for the minerals and vitamins ensuring even distribution throughout the feed and preventing separation in the feed bin.
HYGAIN GROTORQUE may be fed with grain such as oats or micronized barley to maintain condition and provide the energy for growth. Care should be taken to match feed intake to dietary requirements particularly with growing horses as excess energy may increase the incidence of developmental orthopedic diseases.
If horses are obese or at risk of a developmental orthopedic disease remove grain from the diet and feed HYGAIN GROTORQUE alone with pasture and/or hay. Seek professional advice.
HYGAIN GROTORQUE should be fed in conjunction with quality pasture and/or hay.
- Introduce HYGAIN GROTORQUE to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
- Feed by weight and not by volume.
- Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
- Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
- Ensure horses have access to clean water.
- Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
