The trace elements copper, zinc and manganese are important for a multitude of metabolic functions in the horse. A deficiency of any of these elements can lead to reduced feed efficiency. Trace minerals are usually added to horse feed as inorganic salts. These salts disassociate in the stomach leaving a free metal ion in the digestive tract. There are a number of substances that can bind these free minerals making them unavailable for digestion.
FOCUS WT and FOCUS SR contain trace minerals which are needed for efficient metabolism in an organic, chelated form. They are already attached to amino acids and are in a form that can be directly absorbed from the intestinal tract. These minerals are much more bioavailable than inorganic forms and they will not be ties up by other substances in the feed. Please see SOURCE Products: for Horses, for more information.
