Premium Hi-Fat Supplements
For additional energy needs.
elite equine athletes need very specialized rations with all
nutrients in the correct proportions if they are to perform at their
best. Traditionally, cereal grains have been used to supply the
horse with extra energy and other nutrients. Unfortunately, feeding
too much grain (starch source) can result in metabolic and digestive
disorders, such as colic, founder, tying-up, etc., and may
contribute to developmental orthopedic disease (DOD).
Extensive research has shown that fats provide more energy per
pound, are digested more efficiently, and decrease the thermal load
in working horses compared to grains. Dietary fat also has a sparing
effect on muscle glycogen stores, allowing horses to do more work
A source of energy that does not contribute to
metabolic and digestive disorders and DOD is a long-awaited
breakthrough for the horse industry. Stabilized rice bran is
considered the best source of beneficial dietary fat for horses. The
stabilized rice bran is made with a stabilization process that
inactivates the lipase enzyme - the enzyme responsible for causing
rancidity. This process also maintains the potency of vitamin E and
antioxidants naturally occurring in HEALTHY GLOTM,
a stabilized rice bran product. The result is a highly nutritious
FORAGE FIRST programs
combine good-quality forage, GROSTRONG® vitamin-mineral
products, and Concentrated Energy Supplements (HEALTHY GLO
Nuggets, HEALTHY GLO Meal,
a Limited Starch Supplement containing stabilized rice bran, Omega
and Soy ShineTM)
to produce balanced total rations. With this combination of feeds,
horses can be healthy and perform at their best when fed less grain
than they would receive from traditional horse rations.
Consequently, horses are at less risk of metabolic and digestive
disorders and DOD that may result from high-starch intake.
Stabilized rice bran is the foundation of ADM Animal Nutrition's
Concentrated Energy Supplement products.

antioxidants and a significant amount of natural-source vitamin
E, which protects body tissues from oxidative damage. The need
for vitamin E is vital to immune system functioning and may be
especially important for working horses as they are more prone
to exercise-induced muscle damage. Research shows natural-source
vitamin E is more bio-available compared with synthetic vitamin
