Vegetable protein meals, Legumes, Legume Hulls, Rice Bran Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Oxide, Salt, Lysine, Methionine, Sodium Zeolite, Prebiotic (MOS), Bio-Available Selenium, Biotin and HYGAIN®  Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.

Special Ingredients

Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.

Prebiotic – Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® ZERO® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.

Biotin – Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers, veterinarians and scientists.

Natural Vitamin E – This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.

Feeding Guide

Hygain ZERO® is an innovative pelletised feed formulated with ingredients that provide a diet high in soluble fibres and low in starches and sugars.

Research suggests that diets high in Non Structural Carbohydrates (NSC’s), starches and sugars such as those present in cereal grains and cereal grain by-products (eg. bran, pollard) can cause or contribute to the severity of conditions such as Cushings Disease, Laminitis, Tying-Up, PSSM, Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome and other behavioural issues.

Hygain ZERO® is a complete feed ration for horses and ponies that may benefit from a diet low in starches and sugars.

Hygain ZERO® is a high fibre fortified formula designed to be fed with quality pasture approximating 1 to 1.5% of total body weight per day and where necessary, the diet may also be supplemented with hay. Soaking of hay is recommended for horses prone to starch/sugar related conditions (eg. Laminitis, Cushings, PSSM etc). If feeding oaten or wheaten hay ensure that grain content is minimal. The use of chaff is not require
