KelatoVIT

A complete vitamin and mineral supplement formulated by a leading equine nutritionist to meet the high physiological demands of performance horses. 

Description

What is KelatoVIT performance?

KelatoVIT performance is a complete all-in-one multivitamin, mineral, chelated trace mineral and antioxidant supplement for horses to ensure that nutrient requirements are met.

What does “chelated” mean?

Chelated minerals are minerals that have been chemically combined with amino acids to form “complexes”. The resulting substances are known as chelates. Another descriptive term, proteinates, refers to the amino acid bond. These chelated minerals are thought to be more digestible than nonchelated forms. In other words, chelation makes the minerals more bioavailable (able to be absorbed and used for bodily functions), chiefly by shielding them from the effects of other dietary elements in the animal’s digestive tract. Proteinates or chelates are described as organic minerals in contrast to inorganic minerals, those that are not bound to amino acids.

When do they need it?

Horses may have sub-optimal vitamin and mineral levels in their diet when fed,

  • Forage only diets
