Trace Mineral Supplement - For use in diets of mature horses where additional supplementation of these nutrients may be beneficial
dac® Yucca 5-Way Pac provides a trace mineral profile suitable for all classes of mature horses. Minerals play a critical role in numerous metabolic functions including: reproduction, bone development, nerve function, immune function, hoof, skin and coat quality as well as energy balance.
Yucca Schidigera Extract – Active components of yucca include steroidal saponins and polyphenolics such as resveratrol and yuccaols.Yucca phenolics also are antioxidants and free-radical scavengers which may aid horse health. Yucca has also been known for its ability to reduce ammonia (NH3) from animal waste. The Yucca Schidigera Extract used in dac® Yucca 5-Way Pac is a high quality source provided by Alltech® branded De-Odorase®.
Yea Sacc®1026 - is a live yeast culture derived from the specific yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae 1026. Yea Sacc®1026 increases fiber, phosphorus and calcium digestibility in mares, and increases gross energy, total lipids and amino acid absorption. Yea Sacc®1026Improves milk availability to foals if administered for 3-4 weeks before and throughout the lactation period.
Bio-available Trace Minerals – or chelated minerals are those that have been bonded to two or more amino acids. A mineral in this chelated state allows easy passage through the intestinal wall into the blood resulting in increased metabolism of that mineral. dac® Yucca 5-Way Pac utilizes organic minerals to increase availability and enhance absorption rates.
Bio-available Copper – is essential in the synthesis and maintenance of connective tissue.
Bio-available Zinc – is a micro mineral found throughout the body including in bone and muscle.
Bio-available Manganese – is essential for the synthesis of chondriotin sulfate necessary in cartilage formation. Deficiency results in abnormal cartilage and bone development.
