Explained - The 11 Active Nutraceuticals in X-Lam Aid for Horses

Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to their basic nutritional value.


Important for dilating blood vessels and improving blood flow as well as an essential amino acid for growth and other key biological functions.


Essential as a major constituent of bones and required for muscle contractions (all movement), cell membrane function and enzyme regulation.

Collagen Matrix

Collagen is the body's natural glue that is crucial for all connective tissue, including the base membrane of the hoof. Collagen is essential for the integrity of tendons and ligaments and particularly the anchoring points where they are attached to structures like bones and hooves.


An active ingredient of the spice, turmeric. It is a natural and powerful antioxidant and supports the normal anti-inflammatory action of the body.

Folic Acid (Vit B9)

Important for growth and development and helps to produce healthy blood cells.


Gives cartilage its structure and shock absorbing qualities. It is involved in the formation of cartilage, tendons, skin, bone and ligaments.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids provide a daily source of essential fat components, providing the correct dietary balance with pro-inflammatory omega 6. Omega 3's are also found in large concentrations in spermatozoa and are essential for maintaining cell wall integrity and preventing moisture/oil loss from the skin.

Natural Buffering Material

Natural buffering material helps to stabilise pH levels in the hindgut at around 6.2-6.5 to support friendly bacteria that can be susceptible to acidic conditions. The pH in the digestive tract can be lowered by sugar overload, so restricting grass and providing natural acid buffering, aids micro flora and gut wall integrity.

Oligosaccharides (Mannan) (Prebiotic)

Support the immune system by maintaining naturally high levels of macrophage activity to block harmful organisms, such as some unnatural moulds and fungi prevalent in hay, being absorbed into the bloodstream.

Vitamin B6

Supports protein metabolism, growth and cognitive function.

Vitamin B12

Essential for the utilisation of amino acids; involved in the production of red blood cells and the integrity of the nervous system.

Explained - The 4 Active Nutraceuticals in the Oatinol Delivery System

Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to their basic nutritional value.

Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies the following four active nutraceuticals to:

  • Maintain gut cell integrity.
  • Maintain the lining of the gut.
  • Support the immune system.
  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E. They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.


Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.
