A proprietary blend [Organic virgin coconut oil, Cold-pressed ricebran oil, Cold-pressed flaxseed oil] 100ml
EquiPower Maintenance is a unique combination of coconut oil, cold-pressed rice bran oil and cold-pressed flaxseed oil. The blend of coconut oil and essential fatty acids may enhance energy availability and may assist post-event recovery for performance horses. This oil blend may also assist in increasing cellular alkalinity.
What are NSCs?
NSCs are Non-Structural-Carbohydrates, which include sugar and starch. NSCs are mainly found in grains, as well as in sweet foods (i.e. molasses). NSCs provide energy to horses, but in high levels, they may cause metabolic chaos, namely laminitis, poor temperament and ulcers. The accepted NSC level in feeds for most horses is 12-15%.
What is the alternative?
Research shows that oil is a suitable non-grain source of cool energy. One cup of oil is equivalent to about two and a half cups of grains in digestible energy. Not all oils are the same. There are saturated oils e.g. coconut oil - which uniquely contains high levels of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) for performance. There are also polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) which contain Omega 3, 6 and 9.
Oils must be balanced
Over consumption of hydrogenated and PUFA vegetable oils (eg. Soybean oil, maize oil etc.), in combination with grain can cause imbalanced Omega 3 and 6 levels. This may contribute to inflammation and increased circulating free radicals. These oils may also cause cellular acidity. Together this may impact on the efficiency of energy utilisation for performance, and also compromise the overall health of the animal long-term.
EquiPower Maintenance® - a unique blend of oils
EquiPower Maintenance is a balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. It can provide a balanced source of non-heating energy for performance, weight gain and coat health.
