Wilton, ME (PressExposure) October 11, 2006 -- WingspanÂ® Arts International is proud to introduce a revolutionary nutrition supplement for horses of all ages and disciplines.
Depletion of soils all over the world has an impact on people, and animals. We are just beginning to understand the importance of silicon for the proper functioning of the body.
Siliforce HorsesÂ® is a bio available source of silicon, selenium and zinc for horses, and has been established as an effective product for the health and strength of bones. Silicon acts as a regulator for calcium and phosphorous uptake and will directly contribute to a healthy bone cortex and a well-calcified bone matrix. Silicon also plays an important role in the formation of connective tissue and collagen (bones, cartilages, ligaments, tendons, hair, skin and hooves).Siliforce HorsesÂ® is especially valuable for skeletally immature horses (youngsters), and performance horses.
Supplementation with Siliforce HorsesÂ® will help to optimize the bone mineralization process of your horse. Foals and performance horses need all the benefits that nature has intended. Bone mineralization begins during the last three months of pregnancy. At this point the foetal bones are simply cartilage models of the adult bones. The skeleton of the newborn foal contains only 17% of the adult bone mineral content. Once the foal is born, effective mineralization of the bone essential for healthy development, for reducing the occurance of serious injury.
In studies, not only did silicon supplementation increase the rate of bone mineralization, it also increased the glycosaminoglycan levels in cartilage, which is important in the prevention and treatment of degenerative joint disease. Silicon is also involved in the formation of the collagen matrix. This makes Siliforce HorsesÂ® a very important supplement for mature working and performance horses. It will help to keep their bodies strong and capabable of processing the impact and stress of training and work.
Further benefits of silicon include:powerful anti-oxidant, strengthens and repairs connective tissue, strengthens and mineralizes bone, enhances energy, vitality, and endurance, reduces overall cellular acidity which can enhance immune function, and increases cellular hydration. Silicon may be considered one of the most important minerals in all of nutrition.
