Details

Horses lack vital minerals and with the results from our recent research food and soil are 40-70% depleted. Green Source contains a range of micro/macro minerals and bioavailable vitamins for horses prone to obesity/laminitis especially for horses on a calorie counting high fibre, restricted diet.

Modern farming methods and poor soil quality have caused the depletion of vital nutrients in the grease and soil, even the best quality feeds do not contain a balance of the necessary compounds vital to the daily diet.

This supplement contains over 30 micro and macro minerals including zinc, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, sulphur, thiamine, selenium, boron, strontium, copper. More importantly the supplement contains 10 of the major antioxidants from plants known to prevent the damage done by oxidative stress, plus a range of bio-available vitamins and natural probiotics.

This liquid supplement simply represents the best you can give your laminitic/obese prone horse and it has only come together as a result of the findings of two major scientific studies.

WHY FEED 10ML A DAY OF GREEN SOURCE….
Let’s face it some horses (to put it politely) are hungry all the time and will do ANYTHING for food, break down fences, let themselves into feed rooms and jump into the greener field next door. This can be annoying, dangerous or funny if you manage to catch them in time, the question is are these repeat and habitual offenders just little piggies or is something more sinister going on inside!

Sometimes greediness or desire to eat and being overweight goes hand in hand, favourite foods are sweet grass and starchy grains or bagged feeds. Though we often think a horse sees food and wants to eat it the desires are actually stimulated by slightly out of controlled or imbalanced hormones in the gut. As with all hormones there is one which creates a desire (Ghrelin) and one which prevents the desire becoming too strong (GLP-1). Anyone trying to control or limit the feeding habits of an overweight pony will understand how hard it is as the initial response from the hormones of a fat pony/horse is to increase the desire to eat! The downside of the imbalance in these gut hormones is an increase in ACTH levels which might lead to a positive diagnosis of Cushings especially important to know when restricting the diet of an overweight horse/pony.

The best and safest way to control the diet, lose weight and reduce ACTH levels is to add some green plant material (not sweet grass!) to the diet. Safe green plant material includes gorse, wild blueberries, hawthorn, white willow and other shrubby/herby types of plant.

The benefits are as follows;
- An increased sense of fullness
- Faster reduction of body weight
- Reduced fat pads and cresty necks
- Lower ACTH levels

The reason for the improvements in weight loss and appetite reduction are that green plant parts contain anti-oxidants and hundreds of different membrane proteins, galactolipids and sulpholipids as well as various vitamins (A, E and K) and antioxidants like carotenoids, lutein, zeaxantin and chlorophyll. These bioactive compounds cause a reduction in the amount of starch that can pass over the gut wall. The plant membranes promote or rebalance the hormones that tell the horse he is full and also act as important pre and probiotics.
