If you are a proud equestrian or horse owner, then you value the wellbeing of your horse’s health. A nutrient-filled diet includes vitamins and dietary supplements that could be offered through your private label business to other equestrian enthusiasts.
Homing in on Horse Health
Which areas of health should your horse supplements be focusing on? Gastric, digestive, skin, weight, joint… the list goes on. To help create your ideal custom supplement, we have gathered some vital information on each.
Gastric ulcers in horses is a common issue that may lead to further complications. In addition to decreasing stress loads on the horse, supplements designed to promote a healthy gastric system could make a preventative difference in the health of your customers’ horse(s). Ingredients for such supplements include antacids, soluble fiber, collagen, aloe, sea buckthorn, licorice, and L-glutamine.
Some horses are prone to colic, or severe abdominal pain. Similarly to ulcers, you can help prevent horses from developing such a condition by limiting stress. Supplementation includes a combination of probiotics, yeast, or oligosaccharides, which promote the fostering of healthy gut bacteria and digestive enzymes.
Energy is 100% needed for all sustaining life. The densest source of energy is fat. Horses need increased energy in their diets when exercising and growing, as well as when they are pregnant or in early lactation. Providing customers with supplemental ingredients that will increase energy with a healthy amount of fat may help support what horses are meant to do in the first place… thrive.
Whether your customers’ horses are young and active or older and starting to show the signs of osteoarthritis, horse hip and joint supplements may be a good proactive option. When creating your custom formulas you may consider glucosamine, Devil’s claw, yucca, chondroitin sulfate, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.
A well-balanced diet can help keep horses’ skin healthy. Sufficient protein is key to skin regeneration, with copper and zinc important to cell reproduction and structural integrity of collagen. Protein, something else to keep in mind when creating your private label custom formula(s).
Heightened Hoof Care
We cannot forget about one of the most popular areas for horse supplements to target—hooves. Ingredients for hoof health include biotin, methionine, threonine, zinc, copper, and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
