FOCUS HF provides 10 mg. of supplemental biotin per serving. This is many times more than is already synthesized naturally in the horse by intestinal microbes. [sic. 2007 Nutrient Requirements of Horses] Some research (funded by vitamin manufacturers) have suggested that very large quantities of a single vitamin (biotin), is beneficial to hoof quality. However, we feel that it should not be necessary to mega-dose an individual vitamin to foster a normal response. Indeed, our opinion is strengthened by the reports of so many horseman who have supplemented biotin (15 to 40 mg. per day) without success. When they have changed to FOCUS HF, with its wealth of nutrients and micronutrients, they report the wonderfully healthy hooves, and skin and coat condition they've been seeking!
The only nutrient in SOURCE that needs evaluation when formulating a feed ration is iodine. (The levels of each of the other minerals and trace elements is so low that it will not imbalance any feed ration design).
SOURCE is a rich source of natural organic iodine. It is particularly useful for those who are seeking to increase iodine levels in a potentially deficient ration.
