What is Bioplex Manganese for Horses?
Our Bioplex Manganese for horses is an important trace mineral supplement for whole horse body health. It is unusual for manganese to be deficient in the diets of horses as it is abundant in grass, hay, haylage and cereals.
Where our forage analysis reports low levels of manganese, particularly for young and growing horses, supplementation will be necessary.
Bioplex manganese for horses is a highly absorbable mineral source of horse manganese providing 15% elemental manganese without fillers or additives.
What will manganese do for my horse?
Manganese is very important for the correct formation of chondroitin sulfate, which is a key component of cartilage. It is also an important mineral to support the development of strong bones.
Manganese is also part of the superoxide dismutase, which is an antioxidant enzyme that helps to protect cells from oxidative stress, ensuring tissues are kept healthy.
Forageplus does not advise the feeding of separate minerals, such as manganese unless levels have been checked through carrying out a forage analysis. The ratios of minerals are important and feeding one mineral without supplementing correct levels of another can be detrimental to horse health. If you are uncertain of mineral levels then feeding either a Forageplus Equine Balancer or carrying out analysis of forage is wise.
