BUILDABONE provides nutritional support for bone growth and bone turnover, mineral deposition and maturation for superior bone strength, particularly in growing young stock.

BUILDABONE is a revolutionary safe, natural marine neutraceutical supplement for horses. Derived from unique calcareous marine algae ( Lithothamnion), BUILDABONE has several vital properties including maximised calcium retention increasing bone strength and supplying a highly bioavailable mineral source. BUILDABONE provides nutritional support for bone growth and bone turnover, mineral deposition and maturation leading to superior bone strength in growing young stock.

BUILDABONE’s unique natural honeycomb structure provides a surface area in excess of 10 square metres per gram. This porous structure allows the digestive system to break it down slowly, releasing valuable bioavailable minerals over an extended period of time for uptake by the skeletal tissue. The improved formulation includes the addition of Biotin to improve hoof quality, Vit D3, Vit K3 for bone health and Fibrulose (FOS) Prebiotic.

Chelated Copper, Zinc and Manganese – These trace minerals have been added because of their recognised role on bone mineralization and bone development.

Magnesium, Silicon and Strontium –  A natural bioavialable source of these minerals nutritionally promote bone turnover and strength.
