Considering Switching from Platinum to Horse Guard Products


“I’ve fed Platinum Performance for years. I’d like to know some comparative info about your products.”

Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:

In all our vitamin-mineral supplement products what really sets our products apart from others is that they contain 3mg of organic selenium. I did extensive research on selenium for my doctorate, and many studies in the last ten years have found that 3mg of Se vs 1mg of Se aids in higher immune response, and reduces oxidative stress. Our basic product, Horse Guard, contains 3 mg of selenium, 4.5 mg biotin, along with a complete vitamin-mineral supplement, and prebiotics and probiotics in a 2 oz dose. . We also have great hoof supplements: Hoof Guard contains 32 mg of biotin, 400 mg of zinc, 5,000 mg of methionine, and 5,000 mg of MSM, while Biotin Hoof Blast contains 100 mg of biotin, and same amounts of zinc, methionine, and MSM. Our product designed for performance horses, Trifecta, has a full dose of Horse Guard, has full dose of Hoof Guard, higher levels of prebiotics and probiotics, and a joint supplement that contains 5,000 mg of glucosamine, 5,000 mg of MSM, and 100 mg Hyaluronic Acid in an 8 oz dose.
