1 measure of BIOTIN (25 g) provides... 21 mg of biotin (vitamin B8), 2,250 mg of DL-methionine, 1,250 mg of MSM, 750 mg of natural L-cystine, 175 mg of chelated* zinc and 38 mg of chelated* copper, 25,000 IU of vitamin A, 75 mg of vitamin B5 and 75 mg of vitamin B6.
*Amino acids chelate
A source of biotin, sulphur-containing amino acids, protected vitamins and chelated trace elements. Contributes to improving the quality and growth rate of the hoof wall and integuments.
Covers daily requirements in biotin, vitamins B5 and B6
Can be used at higher doses in the following situations:
Distribute with cereals or compound feeds. Mix well into the feed.1 measure = 25 g
ADULT HORSE (500 KG)
1 measure (25 g) equivalent to 5 g / 100 kg (live weight)
Maximal recommended dose
2 measures (50 g) equivalent to 10 g / 100 kg (live weight)
For ponies and young stock, the daily dose should correspond to the animals' live-weight.
The sulphur-containing amino acids (methionine, cysteine) are precursors of keratin, the constituent protein of hoof horn, the coat, the mane and the tail. This structural protein takes its rigidity from the sulphur atoms present in these precursor amino acids which link together with covalent bonds (disulphide bonds).
MSM also represents a source of organic sulphur.
The supply of easily assimilated chelated copper and above all chelated zinc ensures good keratinization and therefore healthy integuments.
At a dose of approximately 20 mg a day, biotin (vitamin B8) improves the growth rate and hardness of the hoof wall. Vitamin B5 takes part in epithelium and integument renewal. It favours wound healing and hair growth.
Vitamin B6 intervenes in the metabolism of amino acids and proteins. Notably it participates in the synthesis of cysteine, sulphur containing amino acids precursor of cystine.
Vitamin A is involved in the synthesis of proteins and intervenes in the integrity and protection of the keratogenous epithelial.
Precautions for use
Due to the presence of high levels of vitamins and trace elements and furthermore, excess sulphur being harmful to keratin synthesis, respect the recommendations.
Store in a dry place, away from light, at a temperature of between 5 and 25°C.
