Full-fat soybean meal and lecithin

  • Full-fat soybeans are abundant in amino acids, the building blocks of protein.
  • Full-fat soybeans contain the highest quality protein and the greatest amount of lysine of any protein from a plant source.
  • Both soybeans and lecithin contain fatty acids, which help maintain elastic skin, slick, glossy coats and contribute to hoof health by creating a barrier that repels excessive moisture.

Biotin

  • Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin that is essential for the maintenance of connective tissue found in skin, hooves, and hair.
  • Research studies have proven that at least 20 mg per day of biotin is needed to strengthen hooves and promote the growth of healthy hoof walls.

Zinc

  • Zinc is vital for protein metabolism. Because hooves and hair are predominantly composed of protein, zinc is integral to hoof and hair strength.
  • Zinc is also critical for proper immune function.
  • Ker-A-Form contains zinc proteinate, the form of zinc most easily digested by horses.

Methionine and iodine

  • Methionine is an amino acid necessary for proper hoof growth.
  • Hoof-building processes depend largely on methionine to bind keratin fibers in the hoof.
  • Iodine controls the production of thyroid hormones, which are necessary for optimal health of hair and hooves.

Yeast cultures

  • Research has shown that high-quality yeast cultures help horses maintain a healthy digestive tract and increase the digestibility of nutrients by stimulating the activity of the good microorganisms in the hindgut.
