MinerEQ™ - Complete Vitamin & Mineral Formula - D3
THE HOOF SUPPORTS THE WHOLE BODY - AT REST AND IN MOVEMENT!
MinerEQ™ is the ultimate source of essential minerals, trace elements, vitamins and antioxidants in one convenient, highly bio-available form. Higher D3 is essential for horses that are constantly stabled.
Minerals and trace elements are necessary for the proper functioning of the muscles (think imbalanced load bearing in movement - flares). They are also responsible for the optimal function of the enzyme systems (responsible for breakdown and absorption of nutrients (think hoof rings).
Unhealthy hooves may indicate unhealthy bones and ligaments. Add a full nutrient profile if your horse is recovering from an injury to the foot (re-growth) or has poor hoof conditions (problems keeping shoes = thin walls, or consistent sole bruising = thin soles - think abscesses), see: Foot Pain/Founder!
