ATCOM SELENIUM ZINC – for the targeted compensation of a selenium and zinc deficiency.
Selenium is - in the right amounts - an important trace element. It has been proven to have an antioxidant function and has positive effects on skeletal muscles, liver, reproductive organs, thyroid function and the immune system. A selenium deficiency weakens the immune system. Severe deficiency also leads to degenerative skeletal and cardiac muscle changes, particularly in newborn foals in the first days or weeks after birth if pregnant mares have been inadequately supplied with selenium. In older horses, seizure-like symptoms have been reported due to a selenium deficiency.
The trace element zinc plays an important role in almost all processes in the body. It is part of the skeleton and enzymes, important for collagen synthesis and antibody formation. Zinc is also essential for the immune system and it therefore makes sense to ensure sufficient zinc intake during phases of increased stress, such as a stable change. Zinc supplementation has also proven effective for hoof problems, such as poor horn quality or slow-growing horn, and skin problems, such as sweet itch or mud. On the one hand, zinc plays an extremely important role in the skin's ability to regenerate as well as in its barrier function.
Since the need for zinc and selenium can hardly be covered by basic feed, especially in regions poor in trace elements, both elements should be supplied via a mineral feed and, in situations with increased requirements, if necessary via a special supplement. With ATCOM SELEN ZINC you provide your horse with highly available selenium and zinc in predominantly organically bound form. This enables optimal availability.
