Description: RED is the liquid complementary feed based on vitamins and trace elements, such as, in particular, soluble and highly biodegradable iron. It is the feed conceived to maintain the proper number of red blood cells. RED is liquid in order to mix it more easily with the horse's ration and meet the needs of those horses that don't like a great amount of powder products in the manger.

When to use RED: It is suggested to use RED when blood tests show a clear red blood cells deficiency or when the horse shows fatigue, its post-work recovery time is long and its training performances poor.

Properties of its constituents: RED contains a blend of vitamins and trace elements with hematopoietic properties, such as, in particular, ferrous fumarate, cupric sulphate, folic acid and vitamin B12. Folic acid is a very important B-group vitamin, also known as folate or vitamin B9. It is contained in plants (spinaches, in particular, contain a great amount of it) but its natural chemical form is poorly available for the body (50% of bioavailability) (70). Therefore, food composing horses' rations cannot properly satisfy their needs of folic acid, which is extremely important for the production of red blood cells: that is why, nowadays, it is preferred to supplement horses’ diets with it. It goes the same for vitamin B12, which is completely absent in plants and, therefore, in horses' diets. Vitamin B12, also known as cyanocobalamin is the most chemically complex and rare vitamin of all. Together with folic acid, it is involved in DNA and RNA synthesis and plays an important role in maintaining proper nervous system and metabolism function and proper energy production (60).

Use and dosage: Administer 30-50 ml of RED per day, properly mixed with the daily ration, for at least 25-30 days.

This product does not cause any adverse reaction. Nevertheless, since every organism has its own peculiarities, dietary supplements, feeds and complementary feeds should always be introduced in a horse’s diet gradually, in order to evaluate the product’s effects on the horse.
