Pea Protein (80% Protein)
Progressive Earth Pea protein is a high quality protein and a rich source of branched chain amino acids.
Protein is needed to support lean muscle mass, muscle, bone and joint structure, vital organ development, immune system health, hoof and connective tissue health and growth and development.
Pea protein is low in sugar and starch making it an ideal choice, for horses and ponies that are prone to laminitis and for overweight horses on reduced hay rations. These horses are often fed later cut forage which may be low in available protein; pea protein can provide the extra protein that is needed without adding the extra calories.
Horses can benefit from an increase in protein if they are in heavy work or if they are prone to being lethargic. Horses that suffer with poor hoof and skin quality may also benefit from additional protein.
