GREEN IRON provides a highly bio-available source of Iron. Iron is essential to many body processes, particularly cell respiration and oxygen transport in hemoglobin. Increased demand for Iron occurs in many situations, from pregnancy and lactation, hemorrhage, parasitism and increased red blood cell turnover demanded by hard training and racing or performance. Demand for adequate iron may not be met by normal dietary sources. This can lead to iron deficiency causing fatigue, poor endurance and exercise tolerance, pale mucous membranes, decreased growth, anemia and poor performance. Many racing and performance horses are in a borderline anemic state due to the increased demands for iron during heavy exercise.
Organic Iron compounds such as GREEN IRON are much more readily and efficiently available to the horse than inorganic iron compounds. In addition, GREEN IRON is formulated for intravenous use for more efficient absorption and faster action. Oral iron compounds are not well absorbed and can interfere with the absorption of other essential compounds. Being water based, CACO COPPER is non-irritant.
