What I feed my horses: Purina Ultium

February 3, 2015

Purina Ultium provides all of the nutriennts that horses need without added sugar. It is a great way to add weight to your horse in a healthy way and, because I switched to Ultium, I was able to gradually eliminate all of the supplements I was feeding my mare before. She currently only gets CocoSoya as a top dressing because I like the way it helps her coat and adds a little more fat to her diet.

 

 

 

Sustained Energy System®

A unique blend of three fuel sources to provide a steady level of highly digestible energy: soluble carbohydrates, fats and fermentable fiber. A horse that is mentally focused, controllable and manageable has the best chance of winning.

 

Targeted Nutrition Delivery System

Quickly transports repair nutrients where they’re needed most. Unique amino acid profile and top-quality fuel sources replenish glycogen and protein stores in muscles to assist in muscle repair with less muscle fatigue for faster bounce back, competition after competition.

 

Nutrient and Energy-Dense

Supports prolonged stamina and endurance while maintaining the equine athlete in peak competitive condition. Less feed is required for maintenance of body condition when compared to feeds with lower energy density, helping prevent digestive upset.

 

Reduced Starch, Higher Fat

May help reduce the risk of colic and other digestive disturbances that can occur when feeding large quantities of grain

 

Purina® Amplify® High-Fat Nugget

A proprietary blend of vegetable oils, flax seed and rice bran smooths the glucose and insulin response to dietary starch and sugar, leveling out blood sugar levels for a pronounced calming effect.

 

Precise Amino Acid Profile

For optimal muscle performance and recovery.  Promotes muscle tone and a strong top line.

 

Highly Fermentable Fiber

Metabolized in the hindgut, providing slow-releasing energy and preserving muscle glycogen. Anecdotal evidence in field tests also indicates Ultium® Competition Horse Formula may be beneficial for horses that have a tendency to “tie up.”

 

Balance of Vitamins and Minerals

Including B-Vitamins, Iron, Copper, Calcium, Phosphorus and Magnesium: blood-building nutrients that help optimize red blood cell production and increase oxygen capacity in exercising horses. The proper balance of Calcium and Phosphorus promotes stronger bones.

 

Added Antioxidants

Including Vitamins E, C and Selenium help address the negative effects of free radicals and support a strong immune system
