Cavalor Superforce Textured Horse Feed, 44 Lbs. is a top-quality sports feed specifically designed to supplement the daily ration of the very active horse during competition. Great for helping the horse perform short explosive efforts (e.g show¬jumping, racing sports, barrel racing, etc). To adequately perform these efforts, the horse’s body primarily uses starches and sugars derived from the forage and concentrates in its diet. Superforce contains an excep¬tional mix of balanced omega fatty acids, in addition to amino acids and an extensive range of vitamins, minerals and easily absorbable trace elements.
- Indication For Use: Quantity per 220 lbs. of live body weight in addition to at least 16.5 lbs. of forage [hay]. Medium exertion: 1.3 lbs; Training and performance: max 1.7 lbs.
- Puffed Grains for Increased Digestibility: By puffing grains we are able to improve the starch digestibility in the foregut from an average of 5-50% to 85-90%. These grains travel through the stomach and small intestine at a slower rate, allowing the digestive enzymes more time to act on the feed. More nutrients in the feed are released for the horse to absorb while avoiding any rapid releases of sugar and starch, which is critical for horses with metabolic issues.
- Sugar and Starch for Explosive Energy: Non-structural carbohydrates (including starch and sugar) are broken down and absorbed in the small intestine, and then stored as glycogen in the muscles and liver. When a sport horse is asked to per¬form short intense efforts, this anaerobic activity will break down glycogen in the muscles into lactic acid. Superforce provides the horse with the energy he needs to perform well during the intensive efforts.
- Vitamin E and Selenium: The combination of extra vitamin E and selenium in Superforce combats the formation of lactic acid and avoids muscle acidification. Sufficient selenium and vitamin E supplementation has been used to prevent muscle disorders (tying-up) in some horses.
