healthy hooves, optimizing horn and frog quality, hoof integrity
Biotin - Biotin is a water soluble B- Vitamin. A number of research
trials have concluded that providing 20mg of biotin per day will
result in significant improvements to hoof quality in a period
between 6 and 12 months.
Methionine - Methionine is an essential amino acid which must be supplemented
in the horse’s diet, as they are not able to produce this
themselves. Methionine works synergistically with biotin to
increase the effectiveness of both nutrients to improve hoof growth
Zinc - Zinc is associated with the health and integrity of hair, skin,
hooves and the immune system. Zinc deficiencies retard the
synthesis of DNA, RNA and protein, which are necessary for proper
hoof condition and repair. A shortage of zinc can also impair
cellular division and growth and repair of connective tissues.
Vitamin A - plays an important role in bone formation, tissue maintenance
and hoof wall growth and strength. Vitamin A is necessary for the
growth and development of normal hooves. Horses deficient in
Vitamin A produce a poor quality, weak hoof wall.
Bio-available Minerals or chelated minerals are those that have been bonded to two or
more amino acids. A mineral in this chelated state allows easy
passage through the intestinal wall into the blood resulting in
increased metabolism of that mineral. dac Foundation Formula
utilizes organic minerals to increase availability and enhance
