While an inactive horse can get all the nutrition it needs grazing in a field; the same cannot be said of a competition horse. If a race horse is to triumph over its opponents, it requires the perfect combination of training and diet. The good folks over at Royal Horse have been shouldering the burden of the latter. Through in-depth research into competition horses and the nutrients they require, Royal Horse has created a series of innovative feeds. Each of the brand’s feeds is guaranteed to lay the groundwork for success, come race day. But how exactly does a Royal Horse formula differ from every other horse feed available in the United Arab Emirates? Let’s find out.
Through its extensive research in the field of equine nutrition, Royal Horse has identified several ingredients of particular importance to competition horses. The chief among them is L-carnitine. L-Carnitine is an amino acid, meaning it contributes to muscle development. It also facilitates energy production from fat inside the cell. It also enhances the recovery time of fatigued muscles.
Royal Horse specifies the inclusion of MOS prebiotics in its horse feeds. And they are certainly justified in doing so. MOS - short for Mannan Oligo Saccharides is a prebiotic which regulates intestinal flora. MOS prebiotics helps to keep horses healthy, which in turn guarantees optimum performance in both training and races. It also helps to remove pathogenic bacteria from the gut.
Certain brands of horse feed contain too much Omega-6 fatty acids and not enough Omega-3 fatty acids (or vice versa). That is not the case with formulas under the Royal Horse banner. Through long hours of research, Royal Horse has managed to attain the optimal ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids in its feeds. It helps to ensure cardiovascular health, muscle growth, and even improved fertility.
When there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in a horse’s body, oxidative stress is likely to occur. Oxidative stress has been known to cause inflammation, bloating, and several other health conditions which are undesirable in a competition horse. To eradicate the risks of oxidative stress, Royal Horse includes high quantities of vitamins E and C in its horse feed.
Bioavailability denotes the degree to which nutrients are absorbed when they enter the body. If your horse is to enjoy the full benefits of the feed you give it, that feed must have a high bioavailability. It is why Royal Horse utilizes chelated trace elements when crafting its formulas. Chelated trace elements promote bioavailability and ensure your horse puts every ingredient in a particular feed to use.
