Description

Eliminate multiple supplements in your feed room with our EquiVitaComplete range - just mix into your base feed and Go!

  • Do you also feed micronised linseed and salt alongside your EquiVita minerals?
    Would you like to eliminate those multiple supplements in your feed room, and have just one 'complete' bag?
  • A multi-functioning and efficient complete nutritional solution that provides the commonly deficient levels of the essential minerals, vitamins, amino-acids and omegas, in the correct ratios, that are lacking in our UK grazing, as required by the equine body (NRC guidelines) for normal function. 
  • Includes the recommended micronised linseed measure and sodium via our Soil Association certified Sea Salt.
  • Ideal for summer maintenance. Simply add more micronised linseed in the winter months. 

* Our EquiVita range is manufactured by a carefully chosen producer who are committed to manufacturing safe, compliant feed independently audited by, and certified to, UFAS, FEMAS, BETA NOPS, and ISO 22000, so you can be confident in the product you receive.

Nutritionally supports the body as a whole, and specifically:

  • insulin sensitivity
  • circulation
  • strong hooves and hoof sole sensitivity
  • calcium absorption
  • growth and development (bone, teeth, soft tissue)
  • skin, hair and coat integrity
  • immune system
  • healthy muscles and nervous system
  • digestion and feed absorption
  • natural nutritive vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels

Feed Rate 

  • 38g/100kg bodyweight daily (one level tablespoon = 15g)

Composition

A 190g measure (500Kg Horse) will provide (apx) :

  • 12g Magnesium (Magnesium Oxide)
  • 10g Brewers Yeast (S.cerevisiae), providing: .6mg Vitamin B1 (Thiamin),.75mg Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin),5mg Vitamin B3 (Niacin), .3mg Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), .4mg Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine),30mcg Vitamin B9 (Folate), 0.2mcg Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin)

Recommendation

  • During winter months as the grass growth diminishes, we recommend adding a further 100g Linseed (micronised) to support the omega/amino acid levels which are depleted in winter grazing and hay. Linseed provides all 8 essential amino acids and a wealth of nutrients, including the Omegas 3, 6 and 9 Essential Fatty Acids, digestive enzymes, protein, vitamins and minerals, with the added benefit of copper, phosphate, selenium and magnesium sources.

Contraindications

  • Supplements of any kind should be fed with caution to the pregnant mare so always seek veterinary advice.

Notes

  • Contains no fillers or banned substances

Meet our new VitaComplete range

I know only too well that having lots of different items on the shelf to spoon into the feedbowl is a right old faff. Well, don't lose heart - we've got it covered.

While of course we have our individual EquiVita mineral balancers, as well as linseed and our range of certified salts as separate items, we've also combined all three together as a convenient 3-in-1.

FAQs

  • - "Buying the VitaComplete would make life a lot easier! Can you confirm the salt doesn’t effect the minerals etc as I’ve read conflicting information? Thanks, Michael" 
    Hi Michael, so here's a thing. Salt acts as a dessicant (drying effect), and I've also been advised by the Alltech bio team that it can denature certain vitamins, hence why we don't include it as standard in our regular EquiVita balancers. 
    So why are we including it in the Complete? Four reasons:
    1. Clients are regularly asking for it as a bespoke blend and the word is spreading, irrespective of the alleged dessicant effect which I always advise on.
    2. As the feed rate is that much higher than the regular EquiVita range, I'm banking on it not sitting in feedrooms for as long. 
    3. All our products are hand blended to order so there's no extra shelf time added to the Best Before date, hence lessening the risk of degrading the mix. 
    4. Why do we use coarse salt? Fine salt has a much higher dessicating effect than coarse, plus it blends completely into the mix making the whole product taste salty. My connie, Murphy, won't eat anything that tastes of salt so the only way I can get it down him is to sneak it in via coarse salt nibs. Plus there's less risk of the dessicating effect.
    Hope that all made sense!

  • - "Hope you don’t mind me asking but is there a reason the VitaComplete costs less than the EquiVita?" Emilia. Hi Emilia, it's all down to the linseed which is a 'straight' feedstuff for horses, and as a result is a low-cost product. It has to be fed at a high rate - min. 100g/day which is what we include it at - so it's effectively diluting the overall blend right down which brings the cost right down as well. Thing is, you've got to feed more than the usual EquiVita RDA to get that extra 100g linseed into the feedbowl (all feed rates on labels and website) so at the end of the day it balances out 😉
