What is APF for Horses?
APF for horses 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 body’s 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.
How does Stress affect the Horse?
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.
Throughout 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 for horses can support the body’s 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.
“APF has been 100% successful in preventing the depression and appetite suppression you can get from pergolide.”— Eleanor M. Kellon, V.M.D
