We have reformulated and improved our horse feed products. The Achiever, Senior and Sweet n Safe will still contain roasted oats (non-GMO), roasted barley and roasted soybeans, but also sunflower and flaxseed. We have switched the nutritional premix to a product that contains organic ingredients and USP vitamins on all products including the Achiever-lite. Healthy Daily Dose The minerals include macro elements of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and sulfur as well a...s minor elements of zinc, copper, manganese, iron cobalt, selenium and ultra-trace elements found in kelp. In addition to the protein in the grain, there are whole amino acid complexes to chelate the trace elements thus enhancing bioavailability. should be included alongside of nuts in this general health recommendation. The FDA only includes a very select list of nuts in its recommendation: almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, some pine nuts, pistachio nuts, and walnuts. However, from a science perspective, these seven nuts don't really have much in common. Only one of the nuts (hazelnuts) is a true nut in the technical sense. Almonds, pecans, pistachios and walnuts are technically called drupes (fleshy fruits that contain seeds), pine nuts are simple seeds (specifically, gymnosperm seeds), and peanuts are legume seeds falling into yet another category of seed (called angiosperm seeds).Given such a mixed list, we think it makes sense to broaden any recommendation to include most nuts and seeds, including the 4 nuts and 4 seeds belonging to our WHFoods Nuts, Seeds & Oils food group: almonds, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds. Any combination of these nuts and seeds adding up to 3 tablespoons per day (1.5 ounces, or 42 grams) is a step we recommend for obtaining the special health FDA's maximum amount, we believe that their very good content of nutrients like manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus—as well as their good content of protein, iron and zinc—make them an equally good choice for your daily nut and seed intake, provided that you keep your overall saturated fat intake for the day at a healthy level. If you're eating between 1,800 -2,000 calories per day, approximately 14-15 grams of saturated fat would be a reasonable daily amount.One important final note: all of our nutrient analyses in the recommendations above are based on raw nuts and seeds. We realize that many people prefer to consume these foods in roasted form, and we believe that roasting There are generous amounts of USP water soluble and fat soluble vitamins which work as co-factors in the absorption of minerals and contribute to a vigorous immune system. Species-specific equine microbials are also incorporated as a source of probiotics and specific botanicals help the ingredients work in concert.Many public health organizations—including the American Heart Association and the Mayo Clinic—recommend daily intake of nuts as part of an overall healthy diet. We're in full agreement with this recommendation for daily intake of nuts. Research findings in large-scale studies like the Adventist Health Study, the Iowa Women's Health Study, the Nurses' Health Study, and the Physician's Health Study all show that the risk of coronary heart disease decreases as the frequency of nut intake increases. Persons who consume nuts once per week have a lower risk than persons who consume nuts just once per month, and persons who consume nuts at least 5 times per week have an even lower risk. We think that's good reason for a recommendation of daily nut intake. http://www.healthydailydose.org/
