The complete protein supplement
A concentrated amino acid supplement to meet the high level protein demands of horses. Protequin is a highly palatable, highly concentrated mixture of essential amino acids, Lysine, Methionine & Glycine; blended with yeast, glucose, soya bean meal and salt to give a valuable protein supplement.
Protequin is made with only the highest quality raw materials being selected for manufacture.
Protequin ensures you that your horse’s daily protein requirements are properly catered for. It automatically raises the total utilisable protein level, when added to a balanced diet.
Protequin has been designed to be fed orally; and is best administered mixed into a slightly dampened feed with water or molasses, to prevent any loss of product during feeding.
The Role of Protein
Protein plays an important role in all bodily functions: maintenance, work, reproduction, lactation and growth.
Protein is also needed to form enzymes, hormones, hide, hair, hooves, blood cells and antibodies (antibodies combat disease and infection). Horses need to store protein for constant use, so a continued daily supply of quality protein is vital.
Why is Protein Needed for Racing & Performance Horses?
The physical activities of racing and performance horses make extreme demands on energy output and tissue repair. Protequin
ensures the essential repair and rebuilding of soft tissue and muscle following strenuous work or racing through the repair of damages muscle fibres. Protequin is of vital importance in the development of muscle and bone structures of growing horses and is the complete source of protein needed in all forms or racing and performance horses.
Amino Acids... Used in the Synthesis of Protein in Horses.
Amino Acids are the essential “building blocks” for the formation of body proteins - which aid in rapid recovery from stress.
