Dunstan Race Mix

    The addition of a live yeast culture assists in complete nutrient digestion, specifically Phosphorus and energy. It also assists in maintaining a more optimal hindgut pH, therefore contributing to overall health of the intestinal ecosystem of the horse.

    Amino acids from digestible protein sources, energy from both carbohydrate and oil sources, trace minerals presented in bioavailable forms and Natural Vitamin E all assist in the equine athlete getting optimum nutrient utilisation from Dunstan Race Mix.

    Chromium Yeast is included as an aid to overall energy utilisation and as an agent to help reduce lactic acid accumulation, a factor often associated with fatigue.
