Pro-Dosa BOOST is a comprehensive, balanced, bioavailable multi-nutrient paste containing water soluble vitamins, electrolytes, trace-minerals, and un-assembled amino acids.
Horses under the stress of competition, transport or illness can become dull, go off feed, or fail to drink well. Pro-Dosa BOOST contains significant doses of nutrients that help to support normal appetite, thirst, hydration, muscle cell function, nerve cell function and mental focus, energy levels, and coat and skin condition. Pro-Dosa BOOST includes a sizable dose of vitamin C, a good antioxidant which is also necessary for the absorption of iron from the gut; balanced doses of all the B vitamins that play a role in metabolism, red blood cell synthesis, and energy production; trace minerals, included at the level of recommended daily intake, that play important roles in red blood cell production and many other metabolic functions; amino acids which are the building blocks for protein synthesis and muscle tissue repair and which play an important role in buffering systems; and a balanced dose of electrolytes including calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus as well as sodium, potassium, and chloride.
Due to the narrow therapeutic range for selenium and the risk of toxicity with oversupplementation, it has been left out.
Due to concerns surrounding cobalt and drug testing in competitive horses, it has been left out. Read our study…
Fat soluble vitamins are stored in the body, and therefore, they do not need to be fed in greater doses at the time horses are under stress. Instead, they should be fed daily as part of a balanced ration. They can be toxic if over-fed, and vitamin E binds with iron, affecting its absorption. As a result, the fat soluble vitamins were not included in our formulation
