Here's a mind-boggling statistic - 50 years ago, carrots had 75% more magnesium than today.
Just one example of how our soil nutrient levels have significantly depleted over the years due to industrial agriculture. The problem is compounded - whether horse or human, we get less minerals from our food than we used to, due to chemicals like glyphosate sprayed on agri-crops, then our processed diets, pharmaceutical drugs, and inflammatory lifestyles deplete our bodies of the minerals we do have.
Us humans are armed with the knowledge to select an appropriate vit/min supplement off the shelf, and upgrade our diet accordingly, to add back the missing nutrients into our bodies. Our horses, however, rely entirely on us to get it right for them. This is why we need a balanced mineral solution to help provide our horses with an effective nutritional foundation.
Let's put it into perspective. Imagine randomly removing 50% of the nuts and bolts from your car, then trying to drive it. How far do you think you’d get? Some might just about rattle and roll, but imagine the stress on your car engine. Chances are, you wouldn’t risk even putting the key in the ignition.
In our human world, if we’re eating the standard western C.R.A.P. diet (not me being rude - it stands for Carbs, Refined, Artificial, Processed), health nuts report that our own machinery is missing a staggering 80% of our essential nuts and bolts. Just as our car won’t function properly, neither will our body, which is why such a high percentage of the western human race is so sick.
Put simply, we need all of the essential components for the body to work properly. And not unsurprisingly, it's the same for our horses.
FACT - Our UK grasslands are deficient in many of the essential minerals, and way too high in others, namely calcium, iodine, iron and manganese.
FACT - Changes in the chemistry of grass cause changes in the chemistry of the horse, with many chronic health conditions being due to unbalanced micronutrients.
FACT - Most alleged behavioural issues will resolve by feeding minerals balanced to our known UK forage deficiencies, which balance the horse's chemistry.
Our EquiVita range is milled for us by Premier Nutrition, who are committed to manufacturing safe, compliant feed independently audited by, and certified to, UFAS, FEMAS, BETA NOPS, and ISO 22000, so you can be confident in the product you receive.
A carefully balanced multi-mineral nutritional solution specific to our UK grasslands.
Balanced to the NRC guidelines based on known UK forage deficiencies, which means it provides the correct ratios of the deficient minerals and micronutrients to balance the equine dietary requirements.
No fillers whatsoever, just the composition your horse needs to balance the diet, and none of what it doesn't (calcium, iodine, iron, manganese) based on the known UK forage deficiencies against the NRC guidelines, to nutritionally balance the diet.
