SHAPE-UP™ is a low starch, low sugar, high fibre mix designed to provide a balanced diet at low intake levels and to help maintain a normal, healthy metabolism. This whole cereal free ration has been designed to give a minimal glycaemic response post-feeding when fed in small quantities, and the low feeding rate makes it ideal for good-doers, as well as horses that may be prone to excitable or anxious behaviours.
SHAPE-UP™ can also be used as a calorie-controlled ration for those with an increased risk of metabolic disorders to meet micronutrient requirements whilst maintaining a low starch, sugar and calorie intake.
Based on “Super-Fibre” technology, the energy provided is in a slow-release manner, which helps to optimise stamina and maintain a calm and trainable temperament. Being in the form of a mix, SHAPE-UP™ provides a higher level of slow-release energy when compared to traditional pelleted balancers through the fibre and oil sources that are used within the formulation.
Shape-Up contains an original acid neutralizing ingredient (Acid Buf) and a mycotoxin binder which help to maintain a healthy digestive system, ideal for horses that may be on restricted forage rations as well as those that are regularly travelling and in higher workloads.
SHAPE-UP™ contains a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals, including a healthy hoof package to provide key nutrients required to maintain optimum hoof quality. SHAPE-UP™ also contains essential amino acids to support muscle function and development and magnesium is also added to help maintain normal cell sensitivity to insulin, nerve transmission and muscle contraction. It is also flavoured with cinnamon to tempt the fussiest of feeders.
