TOTAL EQUINE® ESSENTIALS is formulated to provide the essential minerals and vitamins that an equine requires as well as the level of Ascophyllum nodosum for maximum blood flow and nerve health in a one pound per day feeding rate.

Total Equine® Essentials 
provides the same level of micro nutrients as 4.0 pounds of 
Total Equine® or Total Equine® LNSC.  

Total Equine® Essentials is formulated to reduce to a minimum the amount of NSC in the ration.  This makes it safe for all equine including Insulin Resistant horses.

FIBER Due to the combination of nutrients and the extrusion process the  roughage fed is more digestible.   

PROTEIN The protein in Total Equine® Essentials is derived from wheat middlings and rice bran.  It also contains the added amino acids methionine and lysine, which insures an adequate balance of the essential amino acids required by the horse.

MAJOR MINERALS Minerals are the main building blocks for bones as well as being important for all chemical reactions in the body.  Contains the major minerals calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium and sodium in the correct levels and ratios for maximum growth, activity and health.

TRACE MINERALS   Trace minerals are the catalysts for most chemical reactions in the body and some are Total Equine® Essentials important for antioxidant activities.   Total Equine® Essentials contains levels and ratios of all trace minerals with known requirements and are added at levels above those levels.  This insures the horse will not be deficient in any trace mineral even under severe stress or hard work.

Bioavailability of trace minerals is very important in how well an animal can digest and use the minerals in question.   Total Equine® Essentials is formulated to contain 50% of the Copper, Manganese and Zinc in the form of chelates.  This insures maximum digestibility and availability to the horse.  

VITAMINS  All chemical reactions in the body that produce growth, reproduction, work and even maintenance require a catalyst or several catalysts.  This is the main function of B-Vitamins. Total Equine® Essentials contains all of the B-Vitamins for which requirements have been established and they are all formulated at levels to insure higher than minimum requirement levels.

B-Vitamins also function as antioxidants to reduce the rate of cell destruction by pollutants in the environment as well as metabolic byproducts from the ration.

PROCESSING   Total Equine® Essentials is steam extruded.  This process insures maximum digestibility compared to raw, unprocessed or steam pelleted starch.  


Total Equine® Essentials contains Tasco® which is a specific species of seaweed by the name of Ascophyllum nodosum.  A. nodosum contains high levels of Fucoidan and Fucose sugar.  Fucoidan is a sulfated, short-chain polysaccharide that is known to stop growth of E. coli in the large intestine.  It also controls other pathogenic bacteria that inhabit the large intestine. 

Total Equine® Essentials is formulated with a specific combination of Methionine, Lysine, Biotin, Copper, Zinc and Iodine to provide maximum hair and hoof growth and horse health.
