What is PowerStance®?
• Powdered Coconut Oil
• A rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MTCs)
• High energy (29.4MJ/kg or 3.18MCal/lb)
• PowerStance contains 70% natural coconut oil
• Brilliant coat, mane and tail condition
• May conserve muscle glycogen, allowing horses to train harder for longer
• MCTs comprise lauric and capric acids which may have antimicrobial actions (i.e anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal)
• Assists in maintaining appetite and natural digestive function
Why feed oils?
Oil is 2 to 3 times more energy dense than cereal grains - so you can feed less oil to give the same amount of energy. This is especially useful for those horses that won’t eat when in training. Feeding oils may help to give coat, mane and tails a healthy and glossy appearance.
Which Oil is Best?
Most commercial equine feeds contain polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) including soy, corn and ricebran oils. These polyunsaturated fatty acids may cause an Omega 6 and Omega 3 imbalance. These oils are metabolised slowly through the lymphatics, prone to rancidity, and contains a high level of Omega 6 which may cause inflammation.
Coconut oil is a saturated oil which is absorbed directly into the portal blood and provides a ready source of non glucose energy. Saturated oils promote greater storage and utilisation of muscle glycogen in horses during exercise, this means the horses may work harder for longer.

What is PowerStance
PowerStance is a high energy feed supplement containing 70% natural coconut oil and is a rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MTCs). It may be used for rapid release energy, maintaining gut health, assisting in weight gain and promoting a brilliant sleek and healthy coat.
Do I have to reduce the quantity of CoolStance I feed if I add in PowerStance?
No not at all! Because PowerStance is simply coconut oil, its use will compound the affects of natural coconut meal. The addition of PowerStance to your feed will allow you to see visible results quicker and ensure your horses gut health is improved.
Why Feed Oil?
Oils may be added to the diet as a source of ‘non-fizzy” feed. When starch (typically in the form of grain), is fed to horses in large quantities, there is a risk of starch overload into the hindgut. This can culminate in “fizzy” behaviour, which can result in stressful and dangerous situations for both horse and rider. The risk of starch overload can be minimized by replacing some grain in the feed with oil, to provide energy. Oil provides a source of ‘cool’ energy, which is not associated with ‘fizzy’ behaviour.
Soy Vs Coconut Oil?
Coconut Oil and Soy Oil are both used as ‘cool & safe’ sources of concentrated energy and are fed for conditioning, coat shine and weight gain, or to supply extra energy in the diets of hard-working horses. Their similarities and differences are described as follows: Coconut Oil is a highly stable tropical oil, meaning that Coconut Oil is not prone to rancidity and maintains its nutrient status over long periods. This contains mainly saturated fatty acids of short and medium chain length. Short and medium chain fatty acids are quickly metabolized and available for use as ready energy for high intensity work. Lauric acid (the main fatty acid in coconut oil) is also associated with having antiviral, antibacterial and immune-boosting properties. Produced from soybeans, commercially available soy oils are often highly refined and have usually been chemically extracted. Soy Oil is rich in long chain fatty acids and contains predominantly polyunsaturated fatty acids, making it prone to rancidity.
Can PowerStance be fed to Competition/Race horses?
PowerStance is 100% natural, and much easier to handle than and store than liquid oils. PowerStance can also be used in conjunction with medications for gastro intestinal ulceration and will not return a positive swab.
What are MCT (medium chain triglycerides)?
Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids that are easier to digest, absorb and utilize in comparison to the long-chain fatty acids found in other oils such as maize, soy, canola and rice-bran oil. Medium chain fatty acids appear to behave more like glucose than fat in the body and are preferentially oxidized to generate energy over long-chain fatty acids, meaning coconut oil provides a ready source of energy for use during exercise. Some of the medium chain fatty acids (lauric acid, capric acid) in coconut oil possess antibacterial and antiviral properties. These fatty acids may assist the horse’s immune system in fighting off viral and bacterial challenges, leading to improved overall gut health and wellbeing.
