Strucomix is a multiparticle feed with short fiber and dried corn flakes formulated to add calories and nutrients to the diet.
Strucomix Original is composed of natural raw materials and very easily digestible, it is complemented with Pro Yeast/Yeast Plus (patented probiotic) to maintain a stable intestinal flora. It also contains Struconcept/Fiber Plus (a mixture of patented fibers) to improve the resistance and effectiveness of the airways. It also contains herbs such as thyme, garlic and eucalyptus.
PUFFED GRAINS FOR INCREASED DIGESTIBILITY
By puffing grains we are able to improve the starch digestibility in the foregut from an average of 5-50% to 85-90%. These grains travel through the stomach and small intestine at a slower rate, allowing the digestive enzymes more time to act on the feed. More nutrients in the feed are released for the horse to absorb while avoiding any rapid releases of sugar and starch, which is critical for horses with metabolic issues.
LOW PROTEIN AND OAT FREE
Protein fed in excess of daily requirements cannot be stored in the horse's body. Horses convert protein into muscle mass by eating adequate protein and exercising. If protein synthesis occurs at the maximum rate, the unused amino acids are broken down and excreted. Protein, and therefore amino acid breakdown, happens in the liver and the waste products are excreted via the kidney. Constant overfeeding of protein may stress the organs responsible for taking care of breakdown.
HERBS FOR DIGESTION AND RESPIRATORY HEALTH
The herbs used in Strucomix Original stimulate proper digestion and improve appetite increasing the production of digestive enzymes that help break down feed into energy. The powerful antioxidant compounds in the herbs have been linked to reducing oxidative stress in the body, boosting the body's circulation and the oxygenation of essential organ systems.
Pro-Yeast. Horses today are fed large amounts of feed concentrates, particularly sports horse and mares that are in foal or lactating. Their bodies need help processing them. It is mainly in the small intestine that grains are converted from starch into glucose. When at every meal more grains are fed than the small intestine is capable of digesting, this step is passed on to the large intestine. Inside the large intestine, the acid value (pH) subsequently drops (acidification), causing the micro-organisms to become less active and causing poorer digestion. Active yeast cultures are the solution for this problem, as they stimulate healthy bacteria inside the large intestine and hinder malignant bacteria (streptococci). This prevents acidification (pH drop), which allows the micro flora to operate properly. Pro-Yeast provides optimal digestion of crude fiber, intake of minerals, production of B-vitamins, an effective yield of the total feed and, of utmost importance, a reduced risk of colic.
Florastimul: is a prebiotic supplement that can only be used by “good” bacteria to stimulate bacterial growth and development. In addition, it prevents the adhesion and continued growth of pathogenic bacteria to the intestinal wall. Florastimul ensures the health of the intestinal flora, making the horse less susceptible to gastrointestinal upsets.
Struconcept/Fiber Plus. Crude fiber is an indispensable pacesetter for the intestines. Crude fiber ensures that the energy contained in the nutrients is gradually released. Health-supporting intestinal bacteria inside the large bowel transform these fibers into volatile fatty acids that serve as an energy source for the body. This type of energy, which is released slowly, is the perfect supplement for horses requiring considerable stamina to take part in a variety of horse trials such as endurance, three-day eventing, combined driving and trekking. The intestinal flora also greatly benefit from crude fiber. It has an effect on water resorption, thereby counteracting diarrhea. Furthermore, crude fiber thwarts the formation of salmonella and clostridia bacteria. The crude fiber that is part of Cavalor Struconcept originates from high-grade sources such as alfalfa stems, spelt and flax fibers.
Omega 3 Plus. Omega 3 fatty acids not only benefit humans. They are just as beneficial for horses, offering a propitious effect on their health and condition. In addition to a glossy coat, omega 3 fatty acids offer a wide number of healthful effects. Omega 3 fatty acids are immunity stimulants; serve as inflammation inhibitors; prevent the blood from clotting while prompting improved blood circulation and act as a defense against a host of allergies. This unique fatty acid composition supports the general condition of the horse.
Air-Force. This unique composition of herbs (including mint, thyme and garlic) provides a tasty mixture that even the most picky eaters will happily accept. Moreover, these herbs support respiration, digestion and the body's natural resistance. The Air-Force herbal mix opens up the airways, thereby promoting the supply of oxygen, making the horse feel good. Garlic supports the animal's health, as it is a source of allicin, a natural product that kills off noxious bacteria. Moreover, garlic offers natural protection against intestinal parasites.
