What makes dac Breeder’s Choice Plus different?
• Yea Sacc®1026 – a live yeast culture derived from the specific yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae 1026. Yea Sacc®1026 increases fiber, phosphorus and calcium digestibility in mares, and increases gross energy, total lipids and amino acid absorption. Yea Sacc®1026 improves milk availability to foals if administered for 3-4 weeks before and throughout the lactation period.
• Organic Selenium – selenium is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in metabolism, healthy growth, reproductive health and immunity. It also acts as a powerful antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Organic selenium increases the speed of placental expulsion in mares and improves fertility. Research has shown that Sel-Plex®, an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms. Sel-Plex® is the ONLY organic selenium to be reviewed by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
• Bio-available Trace Minerals, or chelated minerals, are those that have been bonded to two or more amino acids. A mineral in this chelated state allows easy passage through the intestinal wall into the blood resulting in increased metabolism of that mineral. dac® Breeder’s Choice Plus utilizes organic minerals to increase availability and enhance absorption rates.
• Vitamin A plays a critical role in reproduction and embryogenesis. It is also important for maintaining immune function.
