APF is a synergistic blend of phytonutrients and represents an entirely new approach to equine nutrition.

APF’s broad benefits support your horse’s natural ability to “adapt” to stress. These unique nutrients support the bodies ability to manage the damaging effects of stress through every stage of your horse’s life — beginning with the developing musculoskeletal and immune systems of the foal, through the competitive career of the elite performance horse,  to the support of the senior equine companion.

Stress weakens the immune system, decreases the ability of the cells to access and metabolise energy and can seriously impact your horse’s health and performance.  Over the course of your horses, life stress can also lead to numerous degenerative processes.

Cortisol released by stress can reduce glucose uptake in cells by 20% or more.  Stress from any source creates complex molecules called beta-lipoproteins which can result in a 30 – 40% decrease in the utilisation of glucose within the cell.   APF can support the bodies ability to counteract the effects of stress by aiding the liver to convert glycogen to glucose, sustaining the entry of glucose into cells and supporting the utilisation of glucose once inside the cell.

With APF, your horse will be supported in achieving a higher level of fitness more rapidly and safely.  His immune system will be supported to maintain healthy strength to withstand the challenges of training, competition, stabling and transportation.  He will adjust more easily to varying environmental factors such as temperature, humidity and altitude.

APF has been 100% successful in preventing the depression and appetite suppression you can get from pergolide.

    Our 27 year old Welsh A pony was diagnosed with PPID Feb 2020 (She was diagnosed with EMS 6 years ago) – we spent all of 2020 trying to introduce Prascend slowly but everytime she stopped eating (very unlike her being Welsh). We got our first bottle of APF in Dec 2020 and haven’t looked back – It is expensive – but a she only needs 2ml a day and b we never throw any feed away anymore. Thanks for the great supplement – I don’t know how or why it works but it does and would recommend to anyone struggling with Prascend to try it – we syringed straight into her mouth for the first week and since then have added to her feed!! THANK YOU FORAGEPLUS from Aireside Show Team

    My pony was put on Prascend a few years ago, the side effects were terrible. She was so ill on Prascend we decided to take her off it. Tried Prascend again recently, with APF, and she has no nasty side effects. Very happy.

    It might be expensive, but a small bottle goes a long way. I got this product for my very sick horse who responds badly to change in work, weather or environment. This instantly supported his system during those changes, he is more relaxed and happy. I will continue to purchase this product.
