Recent studies have shown that certain organic or chelated minerals provide many advantages to the horse. These advantages include a higher rate of absorption and biological availability, which can lead to benefits such as promotion of hoof wall growth, and increases in immune response and bone mineralization.
A recent study was conducted on yearlings at the Hidaka Training and Research Centre of the Japan Racing Association. The study compared two groups of Thoroughbreds; one group was provided with organic minerals (zinc, copper and manganese) in their diet, and the other was provided with the same levels of inorganic minerals. Researchers measured differences in bone formation and resorption markers and radiographic bone density images (RBAE) with interesting findings.
At the conclusion of the 180 day study it was found that providing organic trace minerals to the diet had the effect of promoting bone formation and significantly increasing bone mineral content in young horses. All Phase contains the same form and level of organic minerals that were used in this study.
