Understanding the Health Benefits of an Amino Acid Supplement for Your Horse

Basic Equine proudly offers Amino Max Extra Strength – an amino acid supplement for your horse that delivers many health benefits.

As mentioned on

“Amino acids are a hot topic in today’s equine nutrition. They are the vital biological building blocks that link together in the horse’s body to create proteins, which form everything from muscle tissue to organ tissue as well as enzymes, hormones and antibodies.

…Dr. Spooner says – ‘Quality matters more than quantity when it comes to protein in your horse’s diet—and quality is determined, in part, by which amino acids are present in his food’.”

Which is where our amino acid supplement comes in to help assist in that, filling in any gaps related to nutrition in your horse’s diet.
