HYGAIN® PRODIGY® is a pelleted feed formulated for the breeder to meet the requirements of stallions, pregnant or lactating mares and growing horses. Providing essential protein, energy and balanced levels of macro and micro nutrients to ensure health, fertility and optimum growth.
HYGAIN PRODIGY®is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
Canola Meal, Lucerne Meal, Vegetable Protein Meals, Maize, Lupins, Wheat, Millrun, Legume Hulls, Lysine, Methionine, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Salt, Magnesium Oxide, HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix, Natural Vitamin E, Bio-Available Silicon and Prebiotic (MOS).
Prebiotic – Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® PRODIGY® 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.
Bio-Available Silicon – Research has shown that Bio-Available Silicon, a digestible form of monosilic acid has a role in bone physiology and metabolism by increasing osteoblastic (bone building) activity and decreasing osteoclastic (bone demineralization) activity, promoting optimal skeletal growth, integrity and durability.
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.
