Do you want to build muscle and put topline on your horse?
Do you want to improve his overall health and well-being?
Make sure your horse is getting the Essential Amino Acids he needs for optimum health with AMINO-3, a blend of Lysine, Methionine and Threonine. These protein-building amino acids MUST come through your horse's diet. Is your horse getting enough? The three essential amino acids required by a horse that are most often deficient in a horse's diet are lysine, methionine and threonine.
Does any of this sound familiar?
- Inability to build muscle
- Poor exercise tolerance and recovery
- Muscle soreness
- Abnormal growth
- Abnormal bone development
- Impaired immune function
- Poor quality coat and hooves
THESE CAN ALL BE SIGNS THAT YOUR HORSE IS LACKING ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS
Lysine is a building block for protein. It’s an essential amino acid because the horse's body cannot make it, so he needs to obtain it from food. It’s important for normal growth and muscle turnover and used to form carnitine, a substance found in most cells of the body. Lysine is responsible for promoting bone growth in foals and maintenance of the skeletal structure in mature horses. It also enhances nitrogen balance and the overall growth of young horses. Lysine deficiency is linked to a variety of developmental orthopedic diseases in young horses, especially in the legs.
Methionine is the second most essential amino acid in the equine diet, and serves many key functions in the body, including support for connective tissue, liver function and detoxification, and strong hoof tissue. Methionine is critical for the growth and maintenance of coat, hair and hoof tissues. It also promotes the bioavailability of selenium, a critical trace mineral that is also, coincidentally, often deficient in the diet. If methionine is deficient in the diet, it will most often be manifest in poor coat, hair and hoof quality.
Threonine promotes overall growth, muscle mass retention and the efficient use of feed. It also is critical in the production of adrenaline and other important hormones. Threonine deficiency can manifest itself in poor body condition and lack of energy.
