The high-fiber herbal mixture
UPDATED FORMULA! Now with lower NSC!
The UPDATED Cavalor® Strucomix Original formula is a higher fat, higher fiber, lower NSC complete feed that contains all the natural ingredients a horse would have originally found grazing in the wild, including alfalfa stems. This textured mix contains puffed cereals, alfalfa stems and aromoatic herbs to improve digestion and increase fiber intake. The herbs in Strucomix Original provide benefits for all horses but especially for those prone to mild respiratory conditions and gastrointestinal issues.
OAT FREE, CORN FREE, MOLASSES FREE
Strucomix Original has always been oat and corn free, but now it is also molasses free! Strucomix Original is a great choice for horses that are experience a wide variety of gastrointestinal or metabolic issues. This feed is perfect for horses with ulcers, insulin resistance, cushings, and PSSM. It is now also higher in fiber with more long-stemmed alfalfa.
LOW PROTEIN AND OAT FREE
Protein fed in excess of daily requirements cannot be stored in the horse’s body. Horses convert protein into muscle mass by eating adequate protein and exercising. If protein synthesis occurs at the maximum rate, the unused amino acids are broken down and excreted. Protein, and therefore amino acid breakdown, happens in the liver and the waste products are excreted via the kidney. Constant overfeeding of protein may stress the organs responsible for taking care of breakdown.
HERBS FOR DIGESTION AND RESPIRATORY HEALTH
The herbs used in Strucomix Original stimulate proper digestion and improve appetite increasing the production of digestive enzymes that help break down feed into energy. The powerful antioxidant compounds in the herbs have been linked to reducing oxidative stress in the body, boosting the body’s circulation and the oxygenation of essential organ systems.COMPOSITION
