RE-LEVE®-MIX

Cereal free mix suitable for horses prone to Gastric Ulcers

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®-MIX plus 0.5-1.5kg of Equi-Jewel® provides low starch and sugar whilst maintaining performance levels.
  • Gastric Health - RE-LEVE®-MIX has been awarded the BETA Assurance Mark for products suitable for horses prone to equine gastric ulcer syndrome.
  • Highly Strung or Nervous Temperament- Horses with nervous dispositions 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.
  • Optimum Stamina - RE-LEVE®-MIX contains long lasting energy sources suitable for performance horses that engage in endurance exercise.

FEATURES & benefits:

  • Cereal and alfalfa free formulation
  • Long lasting blackcurrant flavour for high palatability
  • Probiotic yeast for optimum fibre digestion and maintenance of the hindgut
  • Full-spectrum of vitamins and chelated minerals for optimal health
  • Superior antioxidant protection through natural source vitamin E, selenium and vitamin C
  • Contains BMC® for normal gastrointestinal and bone health

RE-LEVE®-MIX is a cereal and alfalfa free, low starch (8%), low sugar (6%) mix specifically designed to replace all cereal based concentrate feed for horses in work that have a nervous disposition or react adversely to high cereal and starch levels.

Highly digestible "Super-Fibres" and high oil levels reduce the reliance on starch to provide energy (calories) in the diet. The low starch, high fibre and oil levels also make RE-LEVE®-MIX a suitable product for horses prone to Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome.

The trace element package included in RE-LEVE®-MIX is produced by Kentucky Equine Research and contains chelated minerals, which are more easily absorbed than traditional inorganic minerals. Chelated minerals can complement natural stress resistance and help the immune system, whilst improving coat bloom, and skin and hoof quality. High levels of antioxidants, such as a natural source of vitamin E and organic selenium, are included together with daily levels of live yeast to support the maintenance of the hindgut.

An encapsulated blackcurrant flavour is added to RE-LEVE®-MIX to entice the fussiest of feeders. Encapsulating the flavour means that it is protected and released through the physical process of chewing. Encapsulation is more beneficial than essences and oils as they both tend to lose taste and aroma very quickly.

RE-LEVE®-MIX is based on extensive collaborative research carried out by Dr Stephanie Valberg, at the University of Minnesota, and Kentucky Equine Research. 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. It is recommended that 0.5–1kg of Equi-Jewel® (high-fat rice bran) is fed daily alongside RE-LEVE®-MIX to boost energy levels if required.

RE-LEVE®-MIX now features BMC®, a highly bioavailable source of vitamins and minerals essential for sound skeletal development and gastrointestinal balance. Studies conducted at Kentucky Equine Research demonstrated that BMC®, significantly increases natural bone density in high-performance horses. Furthermore, BMC®, supports the gastrointestinal health of horses, as it buffers excessive acid in the stomach and hindgut.

FEEDING THE FUSSY MARE WITH SUSPECTED ULCERS

“"After getting my horse last year I struggled to find a feed that would help my mare put on weight without making her fizzy. She had been on Re-Leve and Dengie Molasses Free for a week and my oh my what an immediate difference! She had filled out so much and not a rib in sight. She looked the best she has ever looked after only 2 and a bit weeks on her new feed. Really started to feel the difference in her ridden work too she just felt much stronger and generally happier."”

The feeding rates are offered as a guideline, if you would like to discuss your horse's individual requirements please contact a member of our nutritional team on 01622 718487.

Feed Body weight 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.

Saracen Horse Feeds recommend that RE-LEVE®-MIX is fed soaked and mixed with a quality chaff. If fed soaked, soak for 10 minutes using 1-part mix to 2 parts water.

RE-LEVE®-MIX is 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 feed, there was less post exercise muscle damage.

RE-LEVE®-MIX now features BMC®, a highly bioavailable source of vitamins and minerals essential for sound skeletal development and gastrointestinal balance. Studies conducted at Kentucky Equine Research demonstrated that BMC®, significantly increases natural bone density in high-performance horses. Furthermore, BMC®, supports the gastrointestinal health of horses, as it buffers excessive acid in the stomach and hindgut.
