Optimal performance, speed, endurance and power can only result providing a horse has a strong skeleton, good bone strength and well-toned body condition. Without a healthy skeleton, the horse would not be able to withstand the concussion and forces placed on their bodies, during training or competition. Inadequate bone mineralization leads to porous, weak bones and higher risk of orthopedic injuries, such as stress fractures, sore shins, torn ligaments, and joint trauma. Bone mineralization or ossification begins early in life. Foals are born with bone mineral content of about 17% and this will increase to nearly 80% by the time they reach one year of age. Long term bone health and soundness requires balanced nutritional needs from protein, fats, carbohydrates and especially the bone building minerals, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and zinc. Like all tissues, bone tissue has a high turnover and must be regenerated. Like muscles, Exercise and training stimulates bone growth and strength. TieX Calcium is an excellent source of bone building minerals, Calcium, Magnesium and Zine The addition of Sodium, Potassium and Chloride will help replenish electrolytes lost in sweat during hard training and work outs. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) will facilitate the conversion of carbohydrates to ATP energy and support muscle and nerve health.
