Spirulina has gained popularity recently in the horse industry due to its many positive benefits. On the human side, the fresh water blue-green algae has been consumed for centuries. Ancient cultures used this nutrient-dense superfood for its incredible therapeutic properties. In fact, recently, spirulina has been called the richest, most nutritious superfood known to man.

Clinical Research

As a natural source of sulfur, MSM supports joint health by controlling inflammation that damages cartilage. MSM has also been shown to improve upper and lower respiratory symptoms due to seasonal allergies and may also support healthy hooves.

Chelated Minerals

Organic chelated minerals are prepared in such a manner as to pre-bond the element to something that is known to improve the availability of the mineral. This bond helps prevent the nutrient from reacting to something that will tie it up and cause it not to be absorbed. The bonding process is called chelation.

In an unhealthy joint, damage is caused by inflammation and cartilage loss. Inflammation is caused by free radicals and the degradation of the meniscus and synovial fluid. Keratin is a powerful antioxidant that contributes to cellular networks that provide strength and elasticity in the body.

FLX4, is a proprietary brand owned by Spectra Animal Health to describe a unique functional antioxidant ingredient, which was developed to address lameness in horses through the addition of natural bioactive keratin to the diet.

MEGA-SEL Field Test Chart thumbnail

MEGA-SEL is the result of research in the methodologies of selenium uptake that began in 1983. The objective of these studies was the development of a means of delivering selenium while controlling doses and absorption in clinical oncological research.


The benefits of selenium and vitamin E have been understood for many years. Selenium (Se) is an essential micronutrient present in tissues throughout the body.

No Hypodermic Injections

Typically, feed supplements do not provide selenium at levels to guarantee peak performance. Potentially dangerous selenium/vitamin E injectables have been used to treat selenium deficiency problems associated with poor performance (myositis, tying-up syndrome, etc.).

MEGA-SEL is a unique selenium and vitamin E product vital to the health and performance of your horse. It’s patented, liquid formula, provides selenium and vitamin E in a palatable form which is readily consumed and utilized by the horse.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a connective tissue polysaccharide and a key component in synovial fluid. HA helps synovial fluid lubricate joints by increasing its viscosity and reducing friction between articular surfaces. HA plays an important role in both mechanical and transport properties in the body, such as giving elasticity to joints.
