Safe n Lite is a highly specialized product for horses and ponies prone to conditions such as Laminitis, Insulin resistance, Cushing’s disease and/or those which display an intolerance to sugars and starches. Although Safe ‘n Lite is grain free and very low in starch and sugar, ample energy is still available from added super fibres and fats to support horses that are working.
High fibre levels are provided to ensure digestive wellbeing and together with added digestive cultures this product can assist with gut health especially in cases of Colic and Ulcers.
Studies have shown that diets low in NSC (Non-Structural Carbohydrates, which include sugar and starch) are beneficial to horses suffering from conditions such as Laminitis. This low NSC is the key factor in the success of Safe ‘n Lite.
A full range of vitamins and minerals are included to ensure that this product covers the nutritional requirements of the class of horse for which this product is intended. Biotin, manganese, zinc and magnesium which are all essential for healthy hooves and also for increasing growth of the hoof horn to assist in recovery from laminitic conditions, are all provided in correct levels.
*It should be kept in mind that this product will not necessarily cure an acute Laminitic condition or active cases of Insulin resistance, Cushing’s or Gastric Ulcers. The product does, however, assist in preventing these conditions and aid in horses and to aid those with sensitivities to diets with higher levels of sugars and starches, due to its very low NSC level.
In all cases of severe or acute conditions please follow the advice of your veterinary surgeon.
