Premium quality bovine colostrum with essential nutrients for foals     

Colostrum: Nature's First Food Colostrum is the first milk produced by mammalian mothers at or around the time of birth. For most mammalian species colostrum is well recognized as nature's "first food." Colostrum is more than milk though. It is one way in which the mother passes her immune system "knowledge" on to her newborn. Rich in antibodies, immune proteins produced by the mother's immune system, colostrum gives the baby the ability to recognize and fight the hosts of immune challenges it will face in the upcoming days, weeks, months and years ahead. In some species, failure to receive colostrum as a newborn can even result in death. That's how important colostrum is to mammals.

Taking Colostrum to the Next Level: KPx™ Technology Vita Flex™ Nutrition uses only KPx™ Technology bovine colostrum in Foal response™. KPx™ Colostrum is produced, in the United States, by a team of scientists and dairy farmers working side-by-side to create what may be the finest commercial colostrum produced. KPx™ cattle are given optimized diets and living environments, and the harvest period for each cow is stricly regulated. In FDA and USDA certified facilities, state-of-the-art filtration technologies are applied, down to the molecular level, to mine this optimized colostrum for its most bioactive properties. KPx™ may be the finest colostrum produced, and we're proud to say that we use it in Foal Response™.

Bovine Colostrum for Horses? Yes! Many of the antibodies found in bovine colostrum are not species-specific. This means that your horses can see beneficial results from supplementation with Foal Response™. Studies have shown that bovine colostrum can successfully replace colostrum for other mammalian species. Although bovine colostrum cannot replace equine-specific antibodies to certain pathogens, it appears to stimulate overall immune competence to a level equal to that of babies that are fed mother's colostrum. Equines can greatly benefit from the KPx™ colostrum found in Foal Response™.

Foal Response™: More Than Just Colostrum! Newborn foals require much more than colostrum for optimal health and protection. Foal Response™ has been formulated to provide newborns with the optimum Immediate Care Nutrition that they need. Colostrum has been long-studied for its positive effects on the intestinal tracts of newborns, but colostrum is only one piece to the "puzzle." Probiotics have long been recognized as an important factor in gut health, and Foal Response™ provides the live microbials (probiotics) that may be missing in your foal's gut at the time of birth. The KPx™ Colostrum and probiotics found in Foal Response™, along with other essential nutrients, make Foal Response™ an ideal supplement for newborns, older foals or weanlings.

For Breeding Farms and Backyard Breeders Alike Foal Response™ is important Immediate Care Nutrition. Its combination of colostrum, direct-fed microbials and other essential nutrients can be of great benefit to every newborn. Every foal, whether born on a breeding farm or in your backyard barn, faces virtually the same set of immune and intestinal challenges. Foal Response™ is formulated to address and meet these unique needs of the newborn, and will make an ideal addition to every supplement cabinet. Whether breeding for sale or personal use, it is important to start your foal out with the foundations for a long, healthy and fruitful life. Foal Response™ can give the Immediate Care Nutrition that each and every newborn foal needs to thrive.
