Intensive agricultural cultivation leads to the increasing depletion of nutrients in the soil and is responsible for the fact that horses can often no longer meet there needs with their staple feed. As a result, serious nutrient deficiencies are occurring ever more frequently, particularly with regard to the important vital substances of zinc, selenium, manganese and copper. In order to compensate for this, the body needs highly bioavailable nutrients added to the feed.
The nutrients in all Brandon® plus powercell products are present in 100% organic chelate complexes which can be absorbed quickly by the body and transported to their destinations. The PSB® complexes (functional cellular building blocks) promote the regeneration of the intestinal mucous membranes and cause an enlargement of the intestinal villi, thus increasing the absorption efficiency.
Copper is crucial for the synthesis of haemoglobin, myelin (the sheath which covers nerves for quick impulse conduction), horn and bone.
In addition, copper is a component in vital enzymes, which play a key role in the formation and interlinking of collagen fibres, and in pigment synthesis. Other important biological functions of copper include the metabolism of connective tissue and the immune system.
The high bioavailability of the copper compound content which combined with PSB® complexes results in an enlargement of the absorption surfaces in the intestine, make Brandon® plus powercell copper the ideal supplement to quickly and reliably balance a copper deficiency through feeding.
