Vetpro Lysine-T contains the essential amino acids Lysine and Threonine. Scientific research has shown that young horses show improved growth, and older horses can show improved muscle mass from Lysine and Threonine supplementation.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The quality of protein is determined by its amino acid composition – it is the quality of the protein in the diet that regulates how well the horse grows and functions. Protein is in every cell in the body, muscles, tendons, organs, glands, hooves and hair.

The amino acids that must be supplied in the horses’ diet everyday are called essential amino acids. Lysine is the first limiting amino acids and Threonine is the second. A limiting amino acid is one that if not present, will prevent protein from being made, even if other amino acids are present in adequate quantities. Therefore protein quality can be improved (released) by supplementing with these two limiting amino acids.

Scientific studies on young horses have shown that supplementation with Lysine and Threonine optimized growth rates. Also fortification of the diet with Lysine and Threonine can allow the quantity of protein to be decreased while still promoting optimum growth.

Horses in work that have a tendency to overheat , blow and sweat excessively, often caused by high protein levels in the diet, can also benefit by reducing the protein percentage in the feed and supplementing with Vetpro Lysine –T.

Vetpro Lysine-T also contains a yeast culture and yeast extract to aid with palatability and digestibility. It also enhances the activity of fibre digesting bacteria which increases nutrient availability and absorption.

Every 50gm dose delivers:
20gm Lysine
15gms Threonine
15gms yeast extract/culture
