Hebridean Organic Seaweed (Iodine)



Seaweed for horses can be used to supply levels of iodine in the equine diet.

Our Hebridean organic seaweed (ascophylum nodosum) is harvested in the cold clear waters of the outer hebrides. Only living weed is harvested and it is carefully processed so that nothing of an artificial nature is added. It is 100% natural, plant derived and is organically certified.

Some horse grass, hay or haylage will be short of iodine so we will sometimes advise supplementation of small levels of seaweed for horses to boost iodine levels in the equine diet.

We do not advise the feeding of seaweed for horses as a general broad spectrum supplement for the reasons outlined in this article.

Please note that all our equine balancers now contain iodine in the form of potassium iodide for optimum health. The levels are based on statistical analysis of data gained from our analysis of forage and reference to NRC guidelines.

It is wise to analyse forage to determine amounts of iodine needing to be supplemented, however where this is not possible a guide is to feed 400 - 600 kg horse 1 x 2.5 ml scoop per day.

Forageplus does not advise feeding more that 1 x 5 ml scoop where levels in forage are unknown.
