A blend of biotin, bio-chelated zinc, quality amino acids, full fat soya bean meal and essential fatty acids formulated in a palatable banana flavoured base for all equines.
HYGAIN GLEAM is a blend of quality ingredients, including Biotin, Zinc, Methionine and Omega Essential Fatty Acids in a palatable banana flavoured base.
Biotin – Biotin is a water soluble B-Group Vitamin often referred to as Vitamin H. A number of research trials have concluded that providing 20mg of biotin per day will result in significant improvements to hoof quality in a period between 6 and 12 months. Research also suggests that biotin stimulates the production of keratin, which in turn provides for the production of smooth soft hair in the coat.
Methionine – Methionine is an essential sulfur bearing amino acid which is required to be supplemented in the horse’s diet, as horses are not able to produce this themselves. Nutritionists and veterinarians alike have been recommending methionine for years because of its ability to stimulate the production of keratin fibres in the horses’ coat. Methionine works synergistically with biotin to increase the effectiveness of both nutrients.
Zinc – Zinc is associated with the health and integrity of hair, skin, hooves and the immune system. Zinc deficiencies retard the synthesis of DNA, RNA and protein, which are necessary for proper coat condition and repair. A shortage of zinc can also impair cellular division and growth and repair of connective tissues. HYGAIN® GLEAM® contains Bioplex® chelated zinc. The chelation process protects the minerals from oxadative reactions within the horse’s stomach that may lead to other forms of minerals ( oxides and sulphates ) becoming less absorbable, or conflict with other nutrients. Therefore Bioplex® chelated zinc is a more efficient and absorbable method of supplementing this mineral.
Full Fat Soybean Meal – Is high in fat and easily digested by the horse and contains all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids required for healthy skin and a glowing coat.
Why use Gleam
Skin and hair, the body’s first line of defence against natural elements, are the most visible signs of a horses overall condition. All horse owners like to see their horses in full bloom with a healthy shiny coat. Research has found that horses supplemented with additional zinc, methionine and biotin have demonstrated superior fine hair growth. This in turn results in softer, finer hair, which we see as a glossy coat. Omega essential fatty acids have also been known to have a positive effect on the coat and skin condition of the horse.
