RE-LEVE®-CUBES

Low starch performance cube

SUITABLE FOR:

  • Optimal Muscle Health – Studies conducted by Kentucky Equine Research in partnership with Dr Stephanie Valberg showed at risk horses experienced more muscle damage when fed a high starch diet. A diet of RE-LEVE®-CUBES plus 0.5-1.5kg of Equi-Jewel® provides low starch and sugar whilst maintaining performance levels.
  • Gastric Health - RE-LEVE®-CUBES have been awarded the BETA Assurance Mark for products suitable for horses prone to equine gastric ulcer syndrome.

Feed Bodyweight Frequency
1.0 - 2.0kg 200-400kg Per day
2.0 - 3.5kg 400-600kg Per day
3.5 up to 5.0kg >600kg Per day
These feeding rates are intended as a guide only. Always try to feed a minimum of 1.5% of bodyweight as good quality forage per day.

N.B These feed levels give the minimum and maximum feeding rates for each range of bodyweights (BW), ie a pony of any BW between 200-400kg could be fed between 1-2kg per day depending on their requirements.

RE-LEVE®-CUBES are based on extensive collaborative research carried out by Dr Stephanie Valberg, at the University of Minnesota, and Kentucky Equine Research (Huntington PJ, Duren S, Valberg S, 2000). It was formulated to provide the equine athlete with the levels of energy required for performance and maintenance of body condition using a variety of alternative energy sources to cereals. This research has shown that when horses predisposed to tying-up were fed a high fat, low starch feeds, there was less post exercise muscle damage.

What is the Difference Between RE-LEVE®-CUBES & RE-LEVE®-MIX?

RE-LEVE®-MIX is the original product in the RE-LEVE® range and will always be our flagship product in being suitable for horses with muscle, digestive, and temperament issues. RE-LEVE®-MIX differs from the RE-LEVE®-CUBES because it contains Acid Buf as well as a live yeast. Acid Buf provides bio-available calcium which helps to aid in buffering of stomach acid as well as helping to support bone density in working horses. RE-LEVE®-CUBES contain just the live yeast. Both products have been formulated to be whole cereal free, low in starch and sugar, and contain high levels of digestible fibre and oil. Both products also contain the unique Blackcurrant aroma which makes them highly palatable.


DO I NEED TO FEED A BALANCER ALONGSIDE THE RE-LEVE®-CUBE?

No, RE-LEVE®-CUBES contain a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals and fed at the recommended intake will provide your horse with a balanced diet meaning no balancers are required.

CAN RE-LEVE®-CUBES BE MADE INTO MASH?

Due to the high oil inclusion, the cubes are soft and can easily be made into a high fibre mash when mixed with cold or warm water. We would recommend 1 part feed to 2 parts water and soaking for 10-15 minutes.

DO RE-LEVE®-CUBES PROVIDE CONDITION WITHOUT FIZZ?

RE-LEVE®-CUBES provide the optimum balance of energy for weight maintenance and work as the digestible fibre sources and high oil levels provide controllable energy without exacerbating excitable temperaments. Perfect for the fizzy horse in need of condition!

ARE RE-LEVE®-CUBES SUITABLE FOR HORSES WITH SHARP, EXCITABLE TEMPERAMENTS?

Sharp, excitable horses often react adversely when they consume high levels of starch. When fed a low starch diet, horses may become more focused and less reactive, improving trainability. The RE-LEVE®-CUBES are high in fibre and low in starch & sugar.

WILL THE RE-LEVE®-CUBES PROVIDE SLOW RELEASE ENERGY?

Yes, RE-LEVE®-CUBES contain long lasting energy sources suitable for performance horses that require stamina. The high fibre and oil levels help support multiple competitive rounds offering slow release energy.

ARE RE-LEVE®-CUBES SUITABLE FOR HORSES THAT TIE UP?

It is recommended to feed a high oil diet to horses with muscle issues as the oil provides an alternative energy source to carbohydrates. RE-LEVE®-CUBES provide a high oil & fibre diet to support performance horses in work.

ARE RE-LEVE®-CUBES ONLY SUITABLE FOR PERFORMANCE HORSES?

The low starch, low sugar and high fibre formulation makes the cubes suitable for a wide range of horses & ponies. They are ideal for providing weight gain for golden oldies at risk of Cushings or Laminitis as well as horses and ponies with fizzy or sharp temperaments.
