Features & Benefits
Low Starch & Sugar
The total starch & sugar level of Carb-Guard is less that 11% and contains NO molasses. A low-starch and sugar diet helps to minimize the risk of starch overload and subsequent digestive upsets such as colic and founder. A low-starch and sugar diet may also be recommended for hyperactive horses and horses with certain health conditions such as Tying-Up, EPSM, Equine Metabolic Syndrome, Cushings and Chronic Laminitis.
High quality fermentable fiber from Soybean Hulls, Beet Pulp and Alfalfa provides additional calories to horses in a safe and natural form while supporting good digestive health and function.
Added Amino Acids with Guaranteed Lysine and Methionine
Helps ensure quality protein is available for the continuous growth and rebuilding of muscle tissue in equine athletes.
Chelated Zinc, Copper and Manganese, Plus Bio-Available Selenium
Optimum levels and ratios are supplied to help ensure a balanced diet for maintenance and performance. The more biologically available forms promote the immune system and sustain optimal metabolic function.
Advanced Antioxidant Package
Natural Tocopherols, Vitamin E and Stable Vitamin C are potent antioxidants, supporting tissue integrity and function while maximizing immune response.
B-Complex Vitamins (including Biotin)
B vitamins are actively involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein into usable energy for maintenance and performance. Added B vitamins support healthy growth of skin, hair and hooves.
