EKIHOOF®

Strong and beautiful hooves once more

How do you take optimal care of the hooves of your horse and pony?

EKIHOOF® is a powder for brittle hooves in horses and ponies. This product promotes hoof formation and improves the quality of the hooves. Ekihoof® also contributes to a shiny coat.

Crumbling hooves are caused by poor horn quality, resulting in cracks or tears and crumbling of the hoof bed below. The horn tissue has low elasticity and is brittle. Crumbling hooves occur frequently in horses. The horn starts to grow down from the coronet (transition between skin and hoof) and grows at an average rate of six mm per month.

Why choose top quality?

EKIHOOF® is a nutricine for horses and ponies that contains all the building blocks required to strengthen the hoof horn.

EKIHOOF® contains the amino acid DL-methionine to promote healthy hooves. The horn consists primarily of the tough protein keratin. This protein contains a high percentage of the sulphur-containing amino acid L-cysteine, which is formed from DL-methionine during the keratinisation process.

EKIHOOF® contains the amino acid L-arginine for improved circulation in the lamina of the hoof, stimulating the production of elastic hoof horn tissue.

EKIHOOF® contains pomegranate extract and curcumin, which produces an anti-inflammatory effect by:

  • suppression of the production of inflammatory mediators (PGE2, TXA2, LTB4, LXA and LXB) by inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX-2) and lipoxygenase (LOX-2);
  • down regulation of the expression of (inflammatory) genes that are responsible for the formation of inflammatory mediators via the NF-κB pathway (signalling pathways that result in the activation of the transcription factors), by inhibition of the activated transcription factor NF-κB (Nuclear Factor-kappa B);
  • inhibition of the pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α).

Specific vitamins, minerals and spore elements that have been added in scientifically researched amounts ensure the effectiveness of EKIHOOF®. Vitamin B6 facilitates the conversion of DL-methionine to L-cysteine. Biotin is indispensable to improved horn quality. Zinc participates as a co-factor in protein synthesis.

EKIHOOF® contains apple aroma to guarantee palatability.
