Which Simplete Should I Feed?

Question and Anwser


“I’m trying to choose between the Simplete products (essential, active/senior, high performance) but the guaranteed analysis on the bag does not show the vitamins and minerals.  Do you have the vitamin and mineral analysis like is shown for the Horse Guard and Trifecta products? Also do you have the analysis for the Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids?”

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

Simplete essential, and active/senior each contain a dose of Horse Guard every feeding, which contains 3 mg of organic selenium and 500 IU of vitamin E per feeding, and all their other vitamin and mineral needs. To look at the full analysis go to http://www.horseguard.com/product/horse-guard/. In addition, Simplete Senior has 3000 mg of glucosamine and MSM, and additional 3000 mg Vitamin C and 3600 mg Lysine.

Simplete high performance contains a full dose of Trifecta, which contains 3 mg of organic selenium and 2000 IU of vitamin E and other trace minerals, 32 mg biotin, 500 mg zinc, 5000 mg MSM and glucosamine, 100 mg hyaluronic acid, and prebiotics and probiotics. For the complete analysis you can visit http://www.horseguard.com/product/trifecta/.

When looking at omega 3’s, Simplete essentials and high performance have 36,000 mg of omega 3’s, and Simplete Senior has 39,000 mg of omega 3’s.

Hope this helps. Thank you for caring so much for your horses.
