Organic Selenium - Selenium is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in metabolism, healthy growth, reproductive health, and immunity. It also acts as a powerful antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that Sel-Plex®, an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms. Sel‐Plex® is the ONLY organic selenium to be reviewed by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Bio-available Trace Minerals – or chelated minerals are those that have been bonded to two or more amino acids. A mineral in this chelated state allows easy passage through the intestinal wall into the blood resulting in increased metabolism of that mineral. dac® Total Performance Plus utilizes organic minerals to increase availability and enhance absorption rates. Glucosamine HCL - is required by the body for the synthesis of an important family of macromolecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). These GAGs make up many body tissues including tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The lack of glucosamine in the joints may lead to specific tissue weakness. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) - is a source of bio-available sulfur. Sulfur plays a critical role in the synthesis of connective tissues, hormones and essential amino acids. Scientific research suggests that MSM may also have anti-inflammatory properties. Chondroitin Sulfate – is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) that provides structural components to the articular cartilage matrix and provides protective and nutritive functions to the joints. Sodium Hyaluronate - is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) that provides structural components to the synovial fluid and provides protective and nutritive functions to the joints. FEEDING DIRECTIONS dac® Total Performance Plus can be fed with either fortified or unfortified grains. Fortified grains contain added vitamins and minerals and require a lower feeding rate of dac® Total Performance Plus. Feed dac® Total Performance Plus at the following rates: Light Exercise 2 scoops (2 ounces) per horse per day if fed with unfortified grains. Moderate to Heavy Exercise 3 scoops (3 ounces) per horse per day. Very Heavy Exercise 4 scoops (4 ounces) per horse per day. Feeding rate based on 1000 lb horse.
