Q: WHAT IS EQUIZEN?

A: EquiZen formulas are meticulously curated blends of essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that have been studied for their effects on nervous system function and recovery in times of stress. EquiZen formulas deliver powerful nutraceuticals to support focus and composure without compromising performance. All ingredients are naturally occurring in equines, and become depleted throughout the course of a day, especially during activity. EquiZen uses the most highly bioavailable forms to help the horse's body recover these essential nutrients more quickly.

Q: WHAT MAKES EQUIZEN UNIQUE?

A: Equizen formulas were developed by a biochemist and physician, in collaboration with a team of veterinarians, equine scientists, nutritionists, and equestrians. While many products make claims, most fail at producing noticeable and repeatable results. EquiZen products are the culmination of extensive research into the equine nervous system and its response to fluctuations in micro-nutrients under stress. Equizen formulas provide the horse's system with critical vitamins, minerals, and amino acids when they are needed most. We accomplish this by using the highest quality, most bioavailable forms of essential nutrients. We spare no expense in the production of our products. Everything is meticulously made in small batches in our own facility where we control temperature, humidity, and oversee all aspects of quality control. Unique in this industry, EquiZen works with companies that manufacture raw ingredients in the USA.

Q: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EQUIZEN PRO AND EQUIZEN DAILY FORMULAS?

A:  All EquiZen formulas are safe and effective for use in a daily supplement program. EquiZen DAILY formulas offer gentle support for all horses, while EquiZen PRO offers enhanced support for training, showing, and for daily use in horses who exhibit higher levels of anxiousness.

Q: HOW DO I GIVE EQUIZEN TO MY HORSE?

A: General tips:

EQUIZEN PRO POWDER 

· Starts working 90 minutes after fully eaten

· Effects last at peak levels for 5 - 8 hours (longer lasting)

· Feed with 2+ scoops of favorite grains to mask taste*** or use oral syringe

· Can be used with an additional serving of powder or paste

EquiZen Pro powder can be giving at morning feeding, or no less than 2 hours before training or showing. The effects are most noticeable 90 minutes after fully consumed and last at peak levels for at least 5 hours, usually longer. If more support is needed, an additional serving of powder or paste can be given. The most effective way to serve a powdered dose is with 2 or more scoops of a preferred grain. The taste of the amino acids can be bitter to some horses. Some people prefer to wet the grain with water to allow the powder to be absorbed into the grain. Others make a paste with vegetable glycerin or honey or raw coconut oil and then add it to grains or use an oral syringe. ***WHAT IF MY HORSE IS SUPER PICKY?***

Clients with super picky eaters have reported success using sugar-free flavor enhancers made for giving horse medications, such as Uckele's Equi Sweet.


EQUIZEN PRO PASTE 

· Starts working in 50-75 minutes (faster acting)

· Effects last 4 - 6 hours 

· Can be combined with an additional serving of powder or paste

Effects are noticeable between 50-75 minutes and last at peak levels for around 4 hours before slowly tapering off. The Paste should be administered like a worming paste. Care should be taken to be sure your horse has swallowed the full contents. Can be used in combination with a serving of EquiZen Pro Powder or EquiZen Daily.


EQUIZEN DAILY or EQUIZEN MARE DAILY work to establish a baseline of positive behavior and offer consistent levels of essential amino acids over a 24 hour period. One level scoop can be administered daily with morning feed. This can be particularly effective for horses with higher levels of anxiety. Can be used in combination with EquiZen Pro Powder or Paste.

All EquiZen Powders and Pastes can be used individually or combined as part of a system for maximum support. For example, on show days some riders will administer a scoop of EquiZen Daily Powder or a packet of EquiZen Pro Powder with morning grains, and then EquiZen Pro Paste an hour before training or showing.
