Spirulina is considered by many to be the #1 Superfood you can feed your horse (and even yourself) as all horses can benefit from adding Spirulina to their diet. Spirulina is said to help improve your horse’s coat, hooves and immune system, help as a blood builder and detoxifier and is good for horses that do not have access to constant pasture which is particularly helpful for horses in the United Arab Emirates. Spirulina also helps to increase a horses appetite when recovering from illness or stress and relieve allergies such as hives, heaves and COPD.
What is a Superfood?
There are certain naturally available foods that have an extraordinary quality of nutrition i.e are in a highly bioavailable form. This means your horse’s body will utilize this type of nutrition fully and receive multiple benefits due to easy absorption of the nutrients.
These foods are called superfoods. Unlike heavily processed, man-made foods, superfoods contain high quality vitamins, minerals, cofactors and enzymes.
