HYGAIN ZERO®

Low carb - Low GI Equine Formula

Do you have a horse that is prone to Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Laminitis, Cushings, Equine Metabolic Syndrome or Tying Up? Then do not wait and start feeding HYGAIN® ZERO® today before it’s too late.

HYGAIN® ZERO® is high in soluble fibre (35%), fortified with vitamins and minerals and has the lowest sugar content of any complete feed on the market.

 

Crude Protein 15 % Selenium 0.75mg/kg
Crude Fat 4% Chromium 2mg/kg
Max Crude Fibre 35% Biotin 5000ug/kg
Added Salt 1.25% WSC less than 4%
Calcium 1.2% ESC less than 4.5%
Phosphorus 0.5 % Starch less than 1.5%
Vitamin E 500IU/kg

HYGAIN ZERO® is a blend of the following quality ingredients:

Vegetable protein meals, Legumes, Legume Hulls, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Oxide, Lysine, Methionine, Sodium Zeolite, Bio-Mos®, Selplex® Organic Selenium and HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix

 

Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that Sel-Plex®, an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.

Bio-Mos® – Bio-Mos® is a unique form of Mannan Oligosaccharides derived from the outer cell wall of a select strain of yeast using a proprietary process developed by Alltech. Bio-Mos® has a defined mode of action and is incorporated in ZERO® to maintain gut health and immune system function supporting natural defences essential for optimum performance.

Biotin – Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers, veterinarians and scientists.

Natural Vitamin E – This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.

Hygain ZERO® is an innovative pelletised feed formulated with ingredients that provide a diet high in soluble fibres and low in starches and sugars.

Research suggests that diets high in Non Structural Carbohydrates (NSC’s), starches and sugars such as those present in cereal grains and cereal grain by-products (eg. bran, pollard) can cause or contribute to the severity of conditions such as Cushings Disease, Laminitis, Tying-Up, PSSM, Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome and other behavioural issues. Research also indicates that diets containing organic chromium may improve glucose clearance from blood, lowering insulin and cortisol levels.

Hygain ZERO® is a complete feed ration for horses and ponies that may benefit from a diet low in starches and sugars.

Hygain ZERO® is a high fibre fortified formula designed to be fed with quality pasture approximating 1 to 1.5% of total body weight per day and where necessary, the diet may also be supplemented with hay. Soaking of hay is recommended for horses prone to starch/sugar related conditions (eg. Laminitis, Cushings, PSSM etc). If feeding oaten or wheaten hay ensure that grain content is minimal. The use of chaff is not require

Hygain ZERO® contains concentrated vitamin and mineral levels, however if intake is below feeding guide additional supplementation with a low intake balancing formula such as HYGAIN® BALANCED® or HYGAIN®SPORTHORSE® should be considered.

Fat – Hygain® recommends the use of HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil® in cases such as PSSM or Tying-Up where horses may benefit from additional fat in their diet for concentrated slow release energy and general conditioning.

Electrolytes – In warmer climates and in cases of Tying-Up, Hygain® recommends the use of HYGAIN® REGAIN® electrolyte replacer to replenish the mineral salts lost in sweat.

  1. Introduce HYGAIN® ZERO® to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
  2. Feed by weight and not by volume.
  3. Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
  4. Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
  5. Ensure horses have access to clean water.
  6. Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
  7. For dietary recommendations and nutritional solutions contact HYGAIN®.

    Thankyou for your product Hygain Zero. It has helped my Clydesdale who has EPSM regain mobility. From near death to great results in dressage(harness) in a couple of years on Zero. Also I feed my young Arabian gelding Zero and he is looking and going great. He is performing well in harness as well.

    I would like to sincerely thank you for your Hygain products. I have an appaloosa gelding prone to flightiness and obesity but for the past month or so he has been an absolute gentleman because, I feel, due to the HYGAIN ZERO .

    I cannot thank you enough as now we can start our dressage tests quietly and calmly – we are doing our first test early May as I was in western before that. It has made such a difference to his general wellbeing and calmness.

    My pony George was prone to laminitis, obesity and depression if he got under fed. My friend suggested HYGAIN ZERO for George because one of her ponies had the same problem. When he arrived he was quite over weight and after the first couple of feeds he seemed to be happier, and after about 30-60 days he was calmer at compitions and started to lose weight but keep condition and improve muscle tone.
    I still feed George HYGAIN ZERO now and a couple of friends have started using other HYGAIN products and they have noticed changes in their horses moods, apperance, coat condition, etc.
    I thumbs up recommend all HYGAIN products!!!
