DuraPlex is proven to support optimal bone mineral density and bone area in both performance horses and growing horses. DuraPlex is a proprietary blend of specific proteins, minerals and vitamins scientifically proven to support bone health during the natural process of bone demineralisation and reduction of bone. These occur when access to free-choice exercise is restricted, such as when young horses enter a training environment, or during periods of total confinement in stables when box resting due to injury, or after surgery.
Studies at Kentucky Equine Research demonstrated positive changes in bone quality after just one month of supplementation. DuraPlex supplementation was also shown to maintain bone health at times of demineralisation, which can be a naturally ocurring episode.
Duraplex is produced by the Kentucky Equine Research Center. This scientific organisation was founded in 1988 by Dr. Joe Pagan and is known worldwide as an independent consultant for feed manufacturers. As a result, all KER products are unique, progressive feeds based on formulas that take into account the scientifically proven nutritional needs of horses.
