Assists rapid hair and hoof growth. With organic Zinc for building keratin and collagen, and organic Manganese for enriched coat colour, Hair in a Bucket facilitates rapid hair metabolism.
Successful hair growth is easily achieved if the horse is healthy, and fed the necessary building blocks for rapid hair metabolism. Hair growth is further promoted by keeping it clean, maintaining natural oils, and conditioning richly to protect from breakage. Frequent plaiting may damage the hair.
Methionine: Methionine is an essential amino acid that helps prevent premature hair loss. It also improves hair texture, quality and growth. Methionine is a powerful anti-oxidant and a good source of sulphur, a necessary nutrient that helps prevent hair disorders. Methionine increases blood flow to the skin surface, thereby increasing nutrient supply to hair follicles and aiding hair production.
Selenium (Organic): The anti-oxidants of selenium help the body absorb Vitamin E. Selenium also aids the body in processing and using proteins that are consumed. Hair is primarily composed of proteins so when the body is able to better process the proteins, hair growth will follow. Deficiencies in selenium (and zinc) often lead to hair loss. Organic Selenium has been found to have higher digestibility than inorganic selenium.
Organic Manganese: Deficiencies of this important mineral may result in impaired hair growth, poor wound healing and other skin issues, as well as loss of hair colour. Without Manganese, biotin cannot be used efficiently.
Organic Zinc: Like the skin, hair has considerable need for the mineral nutrient zinc. Zinc is involved in the building of keratin, which is one of the main components of hair, skin and hooves. A horse needs zinc for the formation of collagen which helps anchor the hair in the skin. Zinc also facilitates the necessary cell division which makes the growth of hair possible. Hair loss may be the first sign of zinc deficiency.
Biotin: Biotin has long been associated with equine hoof care and hair growth. A horse fed Biotin can expect a shinie,r healthier coat, with improved overall skin condition. Biotin is best fed in conjunction with Manganese.
