Used to support metabolic function.



This Lecithin based feeding oil for all horses and ponies is excellent for skin and haircoat growth, stamina and recovery. It has excellent antioxidant properties and can help support the horses’ metabolism. It may be fed to breeding horses and those competing under rules.

Just as important as the adequate provision of nutrients is the assimilation and utilisation of nutrients The two facets are of course intertwined but sometimes in some situations, it can be advantageous to feed a specific supplement that is as much to do with the metabolism than just plain feeding.

Metabolism is the way the body works, all the good feed in the world is of little advantage if the body is less than capable of doing something with it. This action is collectively referred to as the metabolism and concerns the chemical changes and physical processes whereby A) Energy is created for the body’s vital activities and B) Old cells are replaced by new ones. The metabolism is dependent upon a chemical interaction promoted by enzymes which are substances produced in the body acting as a catalyst to trigger chemical change in another. Complex substances are thereby broken down into simple compounds to facilitate assimilation and absorption as in the digestive juices. Attention to the liver, digestive organs and endocrine glands in the form of a constant metabolic support can be very helpful. Cholex provides such support. It is a non-drug multi-facet feeding oil that supports horses and ponies. A little high grade oil included in the diet of such horses is a particularly good practice to pursue as it provides a ‘quiet energy’ source often needed in the absence of dietary carbohydrates, added to this Cholex provides extra Choline in a very acceptable form and Tocopherols (Vitamin E), the first essential antioxidants.


Soy lecithin, Calendula flowers cold infused in Helianthus annuus oil (Sunflower), Natural tocopherols (Vitamin E) derived from Wheat Germ.

Daily feedrate should be split into two feeds if possible. Mix in with the regular bucket feed.

At the standard feedrate for a 500Kg horse (80ml per day), 2 litres will last about 25 days.

Store at ambient temperature not allowing the bottle to get too cold as the Cholex may become too thick to dispense.
