L-Lysine is necessary for appropriate growth (muscle, blood and hoof building) and bone development. It is an amino acid that aids the production of antibodies, hormones and enzymes, and helps in collagen formation and tissue repair.
🌿Protein is vital for good health in your horse. The building blocks of protein are amino acids, some of which have to be supplied in the diet because the body cannot make sufficient quantities to meet requirements.
🌱L-Lysine is an essential amino acid which means that it must be supplied in the diet.
🌿Despite adequate protein intake it is possible for a horse to still be lacking sufficient essential amino acids for horses, like lysine.
🌱Some symptoms of protein deficiency in horses include:
- Flagging Stamina
- Poor hoof growth
- Poor hair quality
- Loss of muscle mass
- Poor growth as identified by lower average daily gain
- Reduced milk production in lactating mares
🌿L-Lysine is an amino acid, the building blocks of protein.
🌱Protein forms the skin and hair coat, builds muscle and strengthens bones and ligaments.
🌿L-Lysine is important in metabolism, a healthy nervous system and proper immune function.
🌱Many horses are affected by Lysine deficiencies unless they are being properly supplemented: Lactating mares, growing foals, breeding stallions and performance horses under high stress are most likely suffering from a Lysine deficiency.
🌿They may not reach optimum growth or recover as quickly from injury as well as having a compromised immune system, which leads them to be more susceptible to disease and sickness.
