NUTRITION: Hoof Health

Trace minerals play a crucial role in maintaining equine hoof health. Hooves are made up of keratin, which is a protein that contains many minerals, including calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, and manganese. These minerals are essential for maintaining the strength, elasticity, and growth of the hoof.

Zinc is particularly important for hoof health, as it is involved in the formation of keratin. Copper is also essential for hoof health, as it helps to cross-link the keratin fibers in the hoof, which improves its strength and durability. Manganese is necessary for the formation of healthy connective tissue, which supports the structure of the hoof.

A deficiency in any of these trace minerals can lead to weak, brittle hooves that are more susceptible to cracking, chipping, and other damage.

Therefore, it is important to ensure that horses receive an adequate amount of these trace minerals, as found in PRO Series, through their diet or supplementation.
