New Equine Supplements Available from Kentucky Equine Research

Kentucky Equine Research (KER), the world’s leading private equine nutrition and consulting company, announces the release of three new products into the KERx Special Needs Nutrition line of supplements.

Restore® SR contains the latest technology in electrolyte therapy, including a proprietary slow-release mechanism that allows sodium to be released gradually into the gastrointestinal tract for sustained absorption.

Feeding a concentrated electrolyte dose causes an immediate surge in blood electrolyte levels. However, a concentrated dose also stimulates increased excretion of electrolytes, flushing out the electrolytes you just fed and shortchanging the horse of vital supplementation. When sodium is delivered slowly over a period of time, more is retained and utilized by the body. Restore SR helps horses retain the electrolytes you provide so they can replenish their reserves in the most optimal manner—slowly.

Restore SR offers these features and benefits:

— Slowly delivers sodium and other key electrolytes such as chloride, potassium, and magnesium to replace what was lost in sweat;

— Reduces the risk of dehydration, muscular weakness, overheating, fatigue, and poor performance;

— Provides electrolytes in a sugar-free formula.

Chester Weber, world champion combined driver, says, “Restore SR replenishes the electrolytes lost during training and competition with a unique scientific formula that allows maximum benefits and maximum absorption.”

Preserve™ PS is a prescription strength antioxidant supplement. Muscle damage is a constant risk in working horses, leading to reduced performance or inability to work. Preserve PS contains a proven mixture of antioxidant agents and essential nutrients that supports normal muscle function during even the most strenuous exercise, and it speeds muscle recovery after work, reducing downtime between performances. Preserve PS features natural-source vitamin E for superior bioavailability.

Preserve PS offers these features and benefits:

— Supports muscle recovery after work, reducing downtime between performances;

— May assist in the prevention of muscle soreness in performance horses;

— Helps to maintain a healthy immune system;

— Aids in recovery after injury or illness;

— Features natural-source vitamin E for superior bioavailability;

John Crandell III, winner of the Tevis Cup endurance event and a silver medalist with Heraldic at the 2011 Pan Am Endurance Championships in Chile, says, “Preserve PS helps Heraldic maintain proper immunity and aids in recovery during strenuous travel.”

Bio•Bloom™ PS is a dual-action supplement designed to promote and maintain healthy hooves and skin from the inside out. Bio•Bloom PS contains biotin, methionine, iodine, and chelated zinc at levels shown to improve hoof growth, including development of strong hoof wall. Bio•Bloom PS includes lecithin and essential fatty acids from full-fat soybean, ingredients that are necessary for production of resilient hoof horn and shiny coats.
