Hygain Grand Prix
A palatable blend of micronized grains, chaff, vitamins and minerals coated with RBO® Equine Performance Oil® and molasses, ensuring a balanced nutritional diet suitable for medium to high performance activities.
HYGAIN® GRAND PRIX® is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
Cooked and Flaked Oats, MICRBARLEY®, MICRMAIZE®, MICRLUPINS®, RBO® (Rice Bran Oil including Omega essential fatty acids and Natural Anti-Oxidants), Natural Vitamin E, Lucerne and Oaten Chaff, Molasses, Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Lysine, Bio-Available Selenium, Bio-Available Chromium and HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.
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.
Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
Bio-Available Chromium – The addition of chromium to performance horse diets has been shown to reduce the build up of lactic acid at the end of strenuous exercise or the closing stages of a race and to increase the horse’s ability to store glucose.
HYGAIN® RBO® – RBO® Equine Performance Oil® is a blend of rice bran oil, omega essential 3,6 & 9 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.
