Kelp...Why its great for our horses!

Kelp...Why its great for our horses!
Have you ever felt poorly and later discovered you were actually deficient in nutrients? 

 Well I had an experience like this quite a few years ago.  Once I got a supply of what I was needing (iodine), I started feeling much better!  Iodine is a trace element and an essential nutrient that supports healthy thyroid function.  This same scenario happens for our horses if they are not getting all the minerals and trace elements to help them with healthy body functions and their ability to thrive.

Through my experience with iodine, it brought to my attention how prevalent its deficiency is in both people and horses!  The experience also brought to my attention the benefit of kelp in the diet to supply iodine along with many other beneficial nutrients.  Kelp are large brown algae seaweeds.   They are grown in forests in shallow ocean areas.  It is known for it's high growth rate, growing as much as a 2 feet a day!

⭐️ Kelp provides an array of ... trace minerals, amino acids and vitamins and also includes iodine! Some of the minerals you'll find in kelp are calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium and zinc.  It also contains the vitamins Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Pantothenic Acid (B5), and Folate (B9), Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin K.

⭐️ With its generous amount of iodine, kelp supports the thyroid and healthy metabolism.
⭐️ Kelp supports healthy immune function.
⭐️ Kelp has a calming effect.
⭐️ Kelp is beneficial for skin, hair and hooves.
⭐️ Kelp supports healthy joints.
          And so important...
⭐️ Kelp helps to remove heavy metals from the body.

Adding Kelp to my horses' diet has a been a daily thing for quite a few years now.  I feed them about half an ounce per day in one meal.  It is easily digested and utilized by the body.  I have been using a brand called Sea Life out of Maine, organic kelp meal for animals.  A 50# bag lasts us quite awhile and is very cost effective.
