Providing over 25 key vitamins, minerals and trace elements, together with probiotics and prebiotics, Everyday Vitamins and Minerals are the ideal way to help ensure optimum health and performance in horses and ponies on forage-based diets, or low intakes of concentrate feed. Forage should form the basis of all equine diets, but many pastures are low in key minerals, and preserved forages such as hay and haylages can lose much of their vitamin content with drying and storage. Many horses and ponies do not need the extra calories from fortified concentrate feed, and this can mean that their forage-based diet may be low in key minerals and vitamins. Everyday Vitamins and Minerals provide a cost-effective, simple way to provide important micronutrients such as vitamin A for the immune system, healthy skin and vision, Vitamin D for strong bones, the antioxidant Vitamin E for muscle health, and B complex vitamins for blood health, immune boosting, and helping body cells to work correctly. Important minerals including calcium and phosphorus help build and maintain strong bones and muscles, and magnesium helps nerves to work correctly. Trace elements including copper, zinc, manganese, iodine, selenium and iron all play important roles in bones, muscles, and maintaining health and vitality. Probiotics and prebiotics included in Everyday Vitamins and Minerals help maintain a healthy gut microflora, which is vital for keeping the immune system working, to produce energy to provide body heat to keep horses and ponies warm, and to digest fibre to produce energy used to maintain bodyweight and to work. Everyday Vitamins and Minerals is carefully blended on a palatable alfalfa base, which also provides important amino acids, together with seaweed, a natural source of many nutrients.
