Biotin-240 for Horses
Originally discovered in the early 1930s, Biotin is a B Vitamin that helps improve brittle nails and other skin disorders. Biotin is naturally found in eggs, almonds, nuts, legumes, milk, meat and whole grains. However, Biotin isn’t just good for humans. Horses also benefit from added Biotin-240 for hoof health and overall quality of life.
What Specific Conditions Does Biotin-240 Treat?
Biotin-240 with Methionine can help support a variety of hoof and skin conditions in horses. Conditions such as cracked, dry, brittle hooves that loose shoes easily may benefit from Biotin-240 supplementation. Horse owners, trainers and veterinarians are familiar with these issues. A regular Biotin-240 regimen should be considered after these conditions have been treated to help promote and maintain healthy hooves and coats.
What Exactly Is Biotin?
Biotin is a simple water-soluble B Vitamin, which plays an integral role in the body’s metabolism. It is inorganic and reacts with the horse’s body to help create healthy skin and hooves. It does this via the absorption process that synthesizes the Vitamin with the aid of intestinal bacteria naturally found in the horse.
Are All Horses Biotin Deficient?
There is no foolproof way to avoid a deficiency of Vitamin B in the diet. While a nutrient-rich diet is the primary means of getting vitamins and minerals, Biotin supplementation is advisable in order to effectively avoid coat and hoof issues.
Horses do not naturally eat the foods that are rich in Biotin. Therefore, many horse feeds include flax seed, an excellent source of Biotin-240, which is also easily digested. However, flax seed can quickly become rancid, which will render the Biotin in the feed inactive. High temperatures occur during the horse feed manufacturing process, which can also negatively affect the quality of available Biotin.
The environment and feed storage also contribute to the lack of Biotin in feed today. In addition, Vitamin B deficiency can be genetic, passing from one generation of horses to the next.
