Equi- Jug is an easy way to eliminate nutritional gaps that can occur from everyday work or poor harvesting and storage conditions for hay and grain.
Horses that engage in intense workloads such as racing, 3 day eventing, endurance rides, multi day competitions, long transportations, post-operative or recovery, aged and arthritic horses, horses with prolong illnesses and reduced digestive capacities can benefit from Equi-Jug.
Nutrient losses in hay can occur due to poor harvest conditions, soil quality, amount of sunshine exposure, and length of storage conditions. Studies have revealed that beta carotene losses (precursor to Vitamin A) can be as high as 80% during curing, and then an additional 7% loss each month. Vitamin E loses in timothy and alfalfa hay can be as high as 60% if not stored in a cool, dark environment.
To ensure the performing horse has adequate nutrient intake, Equi Jug supplies all essential amino acids, fat and water soluble vitamins, antioxidants, electrolytes, and fish oils
18 amino acids, including Lysine, Methione and Threonine, the 3 most limiting essential amino acids, and often deficient in equine diets. Amino acids which horses need for tissue repair, muscle development and strength and proper growth. Protein is also essential for the production of enzymes, hormones, and immunoglobulins, all of which play critical roles in breathing, digestion, central nervous and immune functions.
Fat soluble vitamis, A, D, E and K ensure adequacy for all epithelial tissue (respiratory, intestinal and digestive tract), proper mineral absorption and bone development, muscle integrity and maintenance of tissue repair and blood clotting.
All 8 B vitamins and folic acid. B vitamins are essential for healthy nervous system, production of energy and proper RBC production and oxygen delivery function.
Fish oils contain the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), EPA and DHA have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits that not only improve joint health, but also improve immune function, protect cell membranes from oxidative damage, improve central nervous function, cardiac and digestive health
Chelated minerals Calcium, Phosporous, Zinc, Magnesium and copper to ensure proper bone development, red blood cell production, proper coat and hoof growth and immune function
Antioxidant Complex, Vitamins A,E, C and Zinc, help prevent oxidative damage of cell membranes from free radical reactions. Free radicals are caused by ultra-violet rays from the sun, x-rays, exposure to pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and increase with intense exercise and age..
Electrolytes, Sodium, Potassium, and Chloride are lost with excessive sweating during training and racing. These minerals are critical for all motor function, cardiac and central nervous function.
