The Simple Facts About Amino Acids And Your Horse



All protein is made up of strings of amino acids. This is why amino acids are often called the building blocks of protein. A horse uses amino acids to create the proteins in muscle, bone, blood, skin, hair, hoof and a variety of other compounds that are critical to healthy growth and maintenance.

There are a total of 22 amino acids. You horse’s body is actually able to make 12 of these, when needed, by breaking down the proteins in its feed and converting their structure. There are, however, 10 amino acids that cannot be synthesized by your horse. They are, in alphabetical order, Arginine, Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, and Valine. These ten amino acids are referred to as the “essential” amino acids because they must be consumed in feed.

The three essential amino acids required by a horse that are most often deficient in the forage diet are Lysine, Methionine and Threonine. Sometimes you will hear these referred to as “limiting” amino acids. This simply means that if a horse does not receive enough of them in its feed, certain protein synthesis processes will stop once the amino acid is no longer available. The process is “limited” by the absence of the specific essential amino acid.

Look at what each of these three Limiting Essential Amino Acids does, and you will understand why a deficiency in your horse’s diet can have such a negative impact on growth and overall health:
 

  • Lysine is responsible for promoting bone growth in foals and maintenance of the skeletal structure in mature horses. It also enhances nitrogen balance and the overall growth of young horses. Lysine deficiency is linked to a variety of developmental orthopedic diseases in young horses, especially in the legs.

  • Methionine is critical for the growth and maintenance of coat, hair and hoof tissues. It also promotes the bioavailability of selenium, a critical trace mineral that is also, coincidentally, often deficient in the forage diet. If methionine is deficient in the diet, it will most often be manifest in poor coat, hair and hoof quality.

  • Threonine promotes overall growth, muscle mass retention and the efficient use of feed. It also is critical in the production of adrenaline and other important hormones. Threonine deficiency can manifest itself in poor body condition and lack of energy.

What do the different Amino Acids mean for my horse?

Essential Amino Acids

  • Histidine

    • A basic amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins. It is an essential nutrient in the diet of vertebrates and is the source from which histamine is derived in the body.

 

  • Isoleucine

    • A hydrophobic amino acid that is a constituent of most proteins.

 

  • Leucine

    • A hydrophobic amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins best known for its purpose in providing the body with improved muscle growth and strength

 

  • Phenylalanine

    • An amino acid widely distributed in plant proteins

    • Depression, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, pain, acupuncture anesthesia, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis

 

  • Tryptophan

    • An amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins

    • Studies show that serotonin levels can have an effect on mood and behavior, and the chemical is commonly linked to feeling good and living longer. Supplements can increase serotonin levels via the amino acid tryptophan.

 

  • Valine

    • An amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins

    • Used to supplement workout routines and prevent excessive muscle loss

Non-Essential Amino Acids

  • Aspartic acid

    • an acidic amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins, and also occurs in sugar cane.

    • It is important in the metabolism of nitrogen in animals, and also acts as a neurotransmitter

 

  • Serine

    • a hydrophilic amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins

    • a sweet-tasting amino acid that is synthesized in the body and is involved in the synthesis of cysteine

 

  • Glutamic Acid

    • an acidic amino acid which is a constituent of many proteins

    • helps maintain muscle mass

 

  • Proline

    • an amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins, especially collagen

    • a secondary amino group and contains a pyrrole ring, such as found in hemoglobin and the cytochromes. This structure causes proline in a protein to impart a rigid protein structure

 

  • Glycine

    • the simplest naturally occurring amino acid. It is a constituent of most proteins

    • a building block for protein. It is not considered an “essential amino acid” because the body can make it from other chemicals

 

  • Alanine

    • an amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins

    • used in the biosynthesis of proteins

 

  • Cystine

    • a compound which is an oxidized dimer form of cysteine and is the form in which cysteine often occurs in organic tissue

    • used to form larger protein molecules such as glutathione

 

  • Tyrosine

    • a hydrophilic amino acid which is a constituent of most proteins and is important in the synthesis of some hormones

    • a building block for brain chemicals

CBD:

  • Anti-Inflammatory

  • Immune Booster

  • Bone Growth Stimulant

  • Reduces Anxiety

  • Improves Focus

  • Joint Improvement

CBD: THE MULTIPURPOSE MOLECULE

     Many people are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects – medicine more in sync with natural processes. By tapping into how we function biologically on a deep level, CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions.

Extensive scientific research – much of it sponsored by the U.S. government – and mounting anecdotal accounts from patients and physicians highlight CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of maladies, including (but not limited to):
