Kentucky Equine Research All Phase
KER All Phase is a unique, scientifically formulated, low-starch balancer pellet suitable for every phase of your horse’s life
All Phase is a combination of essential amino acids, vitamins, organic Zinpro Performance Minerals, anxtioxidants including natural vitamin E, protein, and yeast culture in a convenient low-intake, low-calorie pellet.
Zinpro Performance Minerals have been shown by research to increase bone mineralisation, immune responses, coat quality, and hoof health.
Designed as a potent source of essential nutrients, All Phase can be used to balance diets of roughage, pasture, grain or those on restricted-calorie diets. All Phase provides essential nutrition to assist in optimal growth, performance, general health and well-being.
Features and Benefits:
Designed as an everyday fully fortified balancer for performance, breeding, growing and spelling horses to provide a source of essential nutrients to balance the diet
* To supplement essential amino acids, protein, vitamins and organic minerals to horses on home-mixed diets
* To top up protein, vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids when premixed feeds are used below the recommended levels
* As a sole concentrate of essential nutrients when calorie intake needs to be restricted
* To provide the nutrients needed to ensure optimum growth in young horses, and to assist in maximising fertility in breeding stock
* May be used as a sole supplement for horses with developmental orthopaedic disease
Recent studies have shown that certain organic or chelated minerals provide many advantages to the horse. These advantages include a higher rate of absorption and biological availability, which can lead to benefits such as promotion of hoof wall growth, and increases in immune response and bone mineralization.
A recent study was conducted on yearlings at the Hidaka Training and Research Centre of the Japan Racing Association. The study compared two groups of Thoroughbreds; one group was provided with organic minerals (zinc, copper and manganese) in their diet, and the other was provided with the same levels of inorganic minerals. Researchers measured differences in bone formation and resorption markers and radiographic bone density images (RBAE) with interesting findings.
At the conclusion of the 180 day study it was found that providing organic trace minerals to the diet had the effect of promoting bone formation and significantly increasing bone mineral content in young horses. All Phase contains the same form and level of organic minerals that were used in this study.
