The cornerstone of any Basic Equine Health program. This alfalfa-based pellet contains everything that Basic Equine Health has become famous for. High in fat and Omega 3, great for weight gain. Used as a top dress. It comes in two different formulas. Xtra Strength is designed to be used when your horse is undergoing training, showing, or stress to give them the boost they need. Original is designed to be a maintenance formula to maintain the results set by the Xtra Strength starting out. Great for off-season or for your pasture pets.
Xtra Strength Top Dress Pellets are the second tier in the PEAK PERFORMANCE line. They are formulated to stand on their own, or work in conjunction with any of the Basic Equine Health products to increase its strength and concentration. Its base is a highly concentrated aloe vera powder which is the perfect vehicle to carry the active ingredient. This ingredient, an encapsulated time-released sodium bicarbonate, begins to work immediately upon ingestion soothing the stomach, intestinal and cecal lining, decreasing irritation and discomfort by increasing pH. Gastrointestinal distress is primarily a result of a drop in pH within the system. The instantly reacting pH raising crystals begin to work from their introduction into the stomach, continuing throughout the 70 feet of intestine and cecum that make up the hindgut. Xtra Strength Top Dress Pellets are an effective supplement that can be administered to help alleviate the symptoms of gastric distress and hindgut acidosis.
