Combining the benefits of natural oils and our proprietary blend of liquid seaweed vitamins and minerals in an alkaline product The benefits of oils:
- Energy production.
- Storage of fat soluble vitamins A, D, E & K.
- Formation of hormones.
- Building cell membranes.
What makes Spectrum Gold a Unique Product?
The use of omega oils without anti-oxidant supplementation can unbalance the antioxidant:pro-oxidant ratio. In addition, absorption of oils and fat-soluble vitamins is variable if they are not pre-emulsified before feeding. SPECTRUM GOLD is formulated and emulsified to provide the optimum combination and absorption of nutrients to support the anti-oxidant defence system.
Emulsification of our product also ensures our product is has a consistent quality and is shelf stable.
Magnesium is essential for the production of energy, metabolism of minerals, regulation of blood sugar and the maintenance of muscle and nerve function and well as maintaining the strength of bones and teeth. Magnesium Chloride is the most bioavailable form of magnesium due to its Ionic structure and so is the most effective at cellular detoxification and tissue purification allowing for effective excretion of toxins.
The Power of Seaweed
Seaweed has one of the highest mineral contents of any plant containing over 79 minerals and trace elements including Manganese, Potassium, Iron and Zinc, which can significantly improve growth. development, immune function, reproduction as well as general health and production. The main role of trace elements is enzyme formation which act as catalysts for biochemical reactions. Seaweed also contains a range of phytochemicals and osmoregulatory compounds to help enhance and stimulate gut bacteria which aids digestion and nutrient absorption.
Omega 3 Oils
Horses without consistent access to fresh grass can be low in omega 3. Spectrum Gold provides omega 3 in the correct ratio to omega 6 and 9.
Omega 3 is a broadly functioning essential lipid, it plays as role in:
- Delay of exercise-induced stiffness improve oxygen exchange
- Promote red blood cell health and insulin sensitivity
- Improves heart rate during competition
- Improves maintenance of fluid and electrolyte levels with reduced cardiovascular, dehydration and thermoregulation problems
- Delays lactic acid build up
- Helps to reduce joint inflammation
- Increases IgG levels in colostrum of foaling mares
Tocopherols and tocotrienols aid in metabolising fats. For the performance horse, they reduce muscle damage by interrupting the production of free radicals which cause tissue damage.
Vitamin A has been found to enhance the immune system through its role in maintaining the innate and adaptive immune response to infection. Vitamin A also regulates gene expression during cell differentiation. Due to this regulation, it is very important in reproduction and the creation of the embryo. Along with Vitamin A’s role in fertility and horse immunity, it is also a strong antioxidant which also assists in reducing free radical cell damage.
