HYGAIN TRU GAIN® is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
Rice Bran Oil, Bran, Legume Hulls, Natural Vitamin E, Bio-Available Selenium, Calcium Carbonate.
HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil®– HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil® is a blend of rice bran oil, omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes. HYGAIN® RBO® oil plays an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to its energy dense nature and is digested efficiently in the small intestine reducing the ‘sugar high’ associated with high grain diets. HYGAIN® RBO® promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.
Natural Vitamin E – This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma, further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.
Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that Sel-Plex®, an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
Application of Use
HYGAIN TRU GAIN® may also be used to decrease (partially replace) the amount of grain in your horse’s diet, providing a safer method of supplying calories. Reduced levels of starch intake may decrease the risk of feed related disorders such as colic, laminitis, acidosis, Equine Metabolic Syndrom and Cushings.
Horses that are adapted to dietary fat have an increased oxidative capacity and spare muscle and liver glycogen during aerobic exercise.
A high quality coat is partially dependent on providing horses with essential fatty acids for healthy skin and gleaming hair as provided in HYGAIN TRU GAIN®.
HYGAIN®’s controlled moisture and pressure cooking process (extrusion) promotes highly efficient digestion and nutrient utilisation and improved feed safety.
