What is Iron Deficient Anaemia?
Anaemia is a deficiency of red blood cells and/ or haemoglobin, this deficiency may be due to an iron deficient diet or poor iron absorption. Iron Mate provides a bioavailable source of the nutrients needed to prevent anaemia and promote optimal blood oxygenation and blood performance
Folic Acid the added Bonus
Folic acid is required for a myriad of biological reactions including cell production and as an aid to iron absorption
Signs and Symptoms of Iron
- Uninterested in track work and a decreased tolerance to exercise: evidenced by excessive blowing and an often rapid heart rate
- A horse suffering from anaemia will have poor race performance.
Anaemia results in an inability to supply sufficient oxygen to muscles and therefore the horse will tire easily, staying power will be affected and overall speed reduced due to a lack of energy reserves.
