Wellness Wednesday - Organic Equine Nutrition 101
Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Our horses aren't healing and repairing, and clearly at least part of it is because of what they're eating. Whole foods (like oats and beet pulp and hay) are 100% bioavailable, which means the body can absorb 100% of the nutrients. Vitamin isolates, which are added to typical processed feed products and to the majority of supplements are generally only 1-3% bioavailable – and then the body has to find something to do with the 97-99%. In the best case scenario, it is excreted; however, the body may store it or try to complete this incomplete nutrient by robbing components from another area of the horse’s body. NONE of these are good scenarios and can cause multiple problems, not to mention a waste of money.
If you're interested in feeding something that is 100% bioavailable, certified organic, packed with over 2000 nutrients, phytonutrients, micronutrients and has actual whole food as its source, please take a look at the HP Daily product line (www.tamigeorge.com) and contact me for more information.
