Goldenmeal provides additional calories, intracellular oil and amino acids for an increase in muscle, condition, good haircoat and general well-being and to help withstand the rigours of competition whilst not upsetting digestion or changing temperament.
The heat and pressure of extrusion increases the digestibility of its protein content and reduces the globule size intercellular oil as the whole soybeans are discharged boiling in their own oil which being intercellular contains its own emulsifying lecithin content enabling it to broken down and utilised by convalescing horses and those with an impaired or aging constitution.
Goldenmeal is particularly good to feed to mares in the first part of lactation especially early in the year or when grazing is less than optimum. It maintains both milk production and milk quality.
When included in a diet consisting mainly of roughage (fibrous material) Goldenmeal will positively contribute to muscle tone and haircoat appearance, when fed with added starchy feeds (Cooked Barley, Flaked maize etc) and adequate roughage, it completes the energy balance that will provide extra weight and condition. When fed in conjunction with good bushel weight Oats, Goldenmeal makes a positive contribution to sustained racing performance.
Goldenmeal has a soothing effect on the digestive system and a gently beneficial effect on the liver, on mobility and immunity through its antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties. Goldenmeal carotene content is readily converted into Vitamin A when demand is necessary.
Goldenmeal provides an osmolyte accumulation in the cells that attracts water allowing the horse to maintain water balance in a more energy-efficient way. This means that the horse uses less energy to maintain its water balance and more energy for growth and health cell creation.
Goldenmeal is an excellent methyl donor. Methyl groups are involved in hundreds of metabolic reactions including the creation of phospholipids an important component of cell membranes, tissue repair and immune response functions. It is also a source of Phospholipids (as lecithin) in its own right.
