As a rich source of prebiotics and nutrients, Acadian Kelp™ products provide animals and soil with the biological building blocks they need to thrive.
Kelp contains vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants that help support multiple body functions including coat, skin, intestinal, immune and reproduction. Technically, kelp is not seaweed, but in fact a brown algae that grows in cold water “forests.” Huge kelp forests flourishing off the California coasts sustain a multitude of invertebrates, fish, sea otters and other marine life.
Kelp benefits include, but are not limited to:
- *Helps a healthy coat and skin.
- *May support healthy estrous cycles and reproduction.
- *Provides a source of iodine.
- *Helps grow healthy hooves.
- *Delivers the key amino acids lysine, glycine, tyrosine and tryptophan
While horses require a variety of minerals for a variety of physiological functions, iodine is needed by horses for one reason — the production of two important thyroid hormones called triiodothyronine and thyroxine that are responsible for regulating basal metabolism, growth and promoting stable cell differentiation.
