. HOOFMAKER contains a concentrated source of the sulphur rich amino acid Methionine (2,5000mg), and the sulphur rich nutrient Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) (2,5000mg) per 20g sachet. Keratin Sulphate, the structural component in the hoff horn has a high sulphur content. Therefore, it is very important to include high levels of these sulphur rich nutrients for optimum keratinisation, and structural integrity of the hoof wall.
. The vitamin Biotin, is also essential for the production of keratin sulphate. Research has shown that a biotin deficiency can be one of the major causes of cracks and brittleness in the hoof wall. Each 20g sachet of HOOFMAKER contains a high level (37.5mg) of Biotin to ensure optimal levels of this nutrient.
. Calcium is an essential mineral for keratin stabilisation and cohesion in the hoof wall. Research has shown that a calcium deficiency can pre-dispose hooves to weakness, brittleness and cracks originating at the coronary band.
. Zinc is paramount for the proper healing of all epidermal tissue, especially the hooves. Zinc is an essential component of a metalloenzyme - necessary for protein synthesis.
. Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein - which are essential constituents of hoof horn.
