The Simple Facts About Amino Acids And Your Horse

Many horse owners feel intimidated when someone starts discussing amino acids and a horse’s diet. They shouldn’t. Amino acids are important nutrients for your horse and the basics of amino acids are quite easy to understand.

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 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 ingredients mean for my horse?

CBD:

  • Anti-Inflammatory

  • Immune Booster

  • Bone Growth Stimulant

  • Reduces Anxiety

  • Improves Focus

  • Joint Improvement

Crude Protein:

  • In animal feeds, crude protein is calculated as mineral nitrogen x 6.25, whereby the amount of nitrogen present is used to estimate the amount of protein in the food. While nitrogen does come from animal protein, it also comes from non-animal proteins like grains, as well as other non-protein nitrogen (NPN) sources.

Crude Fat:

  • Typically, higher fat usually means lower soluble carbohydrates (sugar, starch). Fat has numerous advantages over starch and sugar as a calorie source for horses. .

Crude Fiber:

  • In general, the higher the crude fiber of a feed, the lower the digestible energy. We typically feed grain or concentrate to supply energy, protein, vitamin and mineral needs, not fiber. So, it is desirable to have low fiber in the concentrate, with one notable exception – “complete” feeds for horses that can no longer consume hay or pasture, like older horses and horses with respiratory problems need to be high in digestible fiber. Complete feeds will be 14% crude fiber or higher. 

Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF):

  • Chemical test used to evaluate fiber quality. ADF measures the amount of cellulose and lignin, which are the least digestible components of the plant. ADF is negatively correlated with forage digestibility, as ADF increases the digestibility and energy content of the feedstuff decreases. ADF can be used to compare hay quality and also fiber quality of horse feeds. The ADF value can be included in an equation to estimate digestible energy content of forages and feeds for the horse.

Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF):

  • Chemical test measuring the total amount of plant cell wall or fiber (cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin). It is a more accurate measure of total fiber and is negatively correlated with forage intake in the horse. As NDF content of a feedstuff increases, intake deceases, and NDF is used to compare hay quality.

Calcium:

  • Calcium and phosphorus are the most important minerals for bone formation and maintenance in horses. These minerals must be supplied in the right amount, and also in the proper ratio, to support skeletal health.

Phosphorous:

  • In a study to determine phosphorus absorption, results showed that phosphorus digestibility as a function of intake was much more variable than calcium digestibility, and several nutrients in the diet appeared to influence digestibility. There was no relationship between protein, calcium, or calcium:phosphorus ratio and phosphorus digestibility. True phosphorus digestibility was also negatively correlated with fiber content.

Selenium:

  • Selenium has a number of roles in the body, but perhaps the most important is that of an antioxidant. Oxidation is the metabolic process by which fats, carbohydrates and proteins are converted to carbon dioxide, water and energy (burned to produce the energy needed for body functions).

Zinc:

  • A component of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which is widely distributed throughout the body. This enzyme converts reduced glutathione to oxidized glutathione and destroys peroxides by converting them to harmless alcohols. This conversion of peroxides prevents them from reacting with lipid membranes and causing loss of membrane integrity.

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):
