Supporting bone density and strength for horses that do not have access to fresh grazing pasture
Vitamin K1 & K2 Supplement for Horses
Vitamin K supports the reduction of the incidence of bone defects that cost the thoroughbred industry every year in terms of lost genetic potential, poor performance and money.
The protein osteocalcin, which is dependent on Vitamin K, binds the mineral and protein in bone together. If the horse does not have enough available Vitamin K, the binding is incomplete and low density, defective bone and cartilage are produced.
It has being known for some time that the correct form of Vitamin K prevents and supports the reversal of osteoporosis, improves bone geometry and reduces the incidence of stress fractures in humans.
Note: Horses that do not have constant access to high quality fresh grazing pasture are likely to be deficient in Vitamin K, leading to a reduction in bone density and strength.
