Vita Flex Pure Lysine™. Lysine is the protein component most often lacking in horses' diets.  VitaFlex Pure Lysine™ is lysine in its most pure and economical form.
Why Lysine? Pure Lysine™ is pure l-lysine hydrochloride (HCI), the stable form of the essential amino acid most often deficient in the diets of horses. Amino acids serve as the “building blocks” of proteins. To make proteins for growth, development, and maintenance of tissues, the horse must have an adequate supply and balance of amino acids in the diet. The protein of many horse diets, especially those that are based on grains and grass hay and forage, is often low in lysine. The National Research Council calls lysine “the first limiting amino acid in the diet of growing foals…inadequate protein or lysine intake results in decreased growth and development of young animals. Inadequate intake of protein or required amino acids by mature horses may lead to reduced feed intake, body tissue loss, poor hair coat, and reduced hoof growth.”
VitaFlex Pure Lysine™ is so concentrated that just a few grams daily can dramatically improve the availability of the rest of the protein in the diet.
Ingredients:L-lysine hydrochloride.
For foals and weanlings, feed 4 grams daily.  For mature horses, feed 4 - 12 grams daily.
