KOMPEET - A Revolutionary New Way to Feed Your Horse
Kompeet is a world first in the scene of natural energy giving products for horses. Kompeet consists of a carefully chosen mix of plantoils, with the specific use as a feed supplement for horses in mind. This blend of unique plantoils has been through a very complicated process to make them water dissolvable, and thereby making it possible for the horse to digest the product immediately and transport the energy directly into the muscular systems, reducing the build up of lactic acid. The horse will feel significantly more willing to perform, and stamina levels will be increased.
If your horse suffers bouts of muscle spasms during or after exercise a high fat diet can help. In mild forms, tying-up syndrome (equine rhabdomyolysis) limits performance; in severe forms, it can be fatal. Recent research has shown that horses improve markedly on a diet in which 20 to 25 percent of their energy needs are provided by fat. The use of Kompeet significantly reduces the build up of lactic acid and allows horses to keep condition and stamina for competition at the highest level with a very low requirement for cereal in the diet therefore reducing the likely hood of tying up.
- Reduce muscle fatigue
- Provides extra energy for competition horses
- Gain in power and stamina, can be felt almost immediately
- Unprecedented rapid build up of muscle mass, visible results normally within 7-14 days
- Monoglycerides are processed on unique fatty acids
- Exceptionally high nutritional value, even for the most sensitive horses
- Laboratory controlled
- Does not contravene current FEI doping regulations
- Kompeet is odorless - tasteless - in powder form - and therefore highly palatable to the horse
- Excellent for horses prone to tying-up
- Documented GMO free
- Kompeet monoglycerid ensures an effective emulsification in the horse's intestines, and will also increase the nutritional value of other feed and products fed to the horse
- Kompeet is concentrated easily absorbable energy
- Remarkable results
High Fat (Kompeet) vs High Cereal (Competition Mix's)
On high-fat diets, horses perform longer without fatiguing, incur fewer injuries, and maintain body weight with less grain intake. Adding fat to a horse's diet permits safe weight gain while reducing the chance of colic or founder; it may also allow lactating mares to breed back more quickly. Digestion of fat yields less internal body heat when compared to high-carbohydrate or protein diets.
Most importantly, perhaps, high-fat diets enable horses in high-performance situations (e.g., while pregnant, lactating, or working at moderate and intense levels) to more efficiently and safely meet their high energy requirements. Unfortunately, the horse's relatively small digestive tract limits the total volume of feed it can consume. As a result, horses requiring high-energy intake must be fed an energy-dense concentrate mix. Traditionally, this has been accomplished by increasing the concentrate (high-energy) portion of the diet while limiting forage intake.
Under ideal management conditions, a horse should consume no less than 50% of its daily intake in the form of forage. Horses that are "hard keepers" and maintain low body fat reserves typically require greater than a 50% daily intake of concentrates to maintain their body weight during high-production situations. Unfortunately, the replacement of forage with high-starch concentrates in levels greater then 50% of the total diet negatively affects the pH and activity of the digestive microbes found in the horse's cecum and large intestine. The net effect is an increased incidence of founder and colic.
Since fat contains 2.25 times more energy than either carbohydrates or protein, increasing the fat level of the diet is the safest way to increase the energy density of the diet. Kompeet contains three times more energy than grains on an equal volume basis. Research has indicated that adding 5 to 10% fat to the total diet has maintained the body weight of horses with a 21 to 25% decrease in concentrate intake. Replacement of 10% of the recommended grain intake with a high fat source will improve energy intake.
Fat is an important energy source for the high-performance horse. High-fat diets provide a safe, efficient energy source that will improve your horse's performance, minimize the risk of colic and founder, and are more cost-effective.
