Kangen Water – Horses
Horses and Kangen!
Water is an important but a very often overlooked nutrient for horses.
As a matter of fact, water is the often forgotten food and it maybe the “greatest medicine” for many specific ailments for all animals.
A horse’s body consists of approximately 65-75 % water.
10 percent can be accounted for in the differences of age and the amount of body fat and muscle mass.
Water is essential for all body metabolic activities, and it is required for a number of fundamental physiological processes, including the normal utilization and the digestion of all nutrients, regulation of body temperature, and muscle contraction with strength, joint lubrication and waste elimination.
Tap water has many toxic chemicals.
Salts in the water may be toxic at high levels and have reduced palatability.
Substances which are toxic without much effect on palatability include nitrates and fluorine, as well as salts of many and variuos heavy metals.
Nitrates and Fluorine are both found in well and city tap water sources.
Tap water can also be contaminated with nitrates, lye, ammonia, and chlorine.
The hardness of the water is caused by inorganic calcium and magnesium.
There are lots of microorganisms in our tap water supply that can cause all animal health problems.
Other contaminants include coccidia, staph, strep, virus, lepto, etc.
Chemicals found in tap water can be detrimental to livestock production.
Safe levels of herbicides and pesticides in feeding water, for animals, have not been determined as yet.
New technology does create premium drinking water for horses and is now available anywhere in the World and eliminates the toxic chemicals found in source tap water.
The Case For Kangen Water®!
Impurities and chlorine from your tap water are removed and the water is electrolyzed and loaded with antioxidants — plus it is highly alkaline.
This fantastic and amazing technology was discovered in 1950 by the Russians and introduced to the Japanese around 1974.
The Japanese have perfected the technology.
Substantial evidence and testimonials of health benefits began to appear, and Kangen Water® has become the standard water treatment in approximately 20% of households and is now a Qualified Medical Device and used in many Hospitals in Japan!!
This is the greatest water purification technology worldwide for both humans and livestock.
Water requirements for horses are influenced by several different factors, including the rate of weight gain, pregnancy, lactation, and activity, type of diet, feed intake, and environmental temperature.
A horse’s body consists of about 75 – 80 gallons of water on average.
Muscles, tendons, and the tissues in a horse are fairly delicate and the quality the tissues will result the horse’s performance and its resistance to injury.
It may surprise you that the quality and quantity of water that a horse consumes is a vital and crucial part of this equation!
Kangen Water® technology is now available for horses and indeed all other livestock with the Super SD501 and they too can enjoy the many health benefits of this miracle water.
The numerous benefits of restructured micro-clustered alkaline, antioxidant-charged water has been amazing for horses and other livestock just as it has been for millions of families and communities worldwide:
- It has been used as a preventative against degenerative disease such as arthritis and OCD
- It promotes optimum hydration into the cells
- It IS the most powerful antioxidant in the world known at this time
- It increases energy totally naturally
- It assists in the management and prevention of metabolic disorders such as Tying up, Colic, Lameness, Laminitis, Stocking Up, and Insulin Resistance
- It is used as a preventative against ulcers and the repair of Ulcers
- It also improves Hoof and Hair growth
- It reduces carbohydrate overload into the intestines which is caused by acidosis.
- It helps maintains a healthy gut
- It also avoids Scratches, White Line Disease and Hives.
Horse Nutrition and Horse feed!
As you are probably well aware, the Internet is overloaded with info about horse nutrition and horse feed which makes it hard for the horse owner to decide which feed they should use in their feeding program.
The decision has to be made to either feed horses a cool diet or a hot diet.
A cool diet will typically consist of Timothy hay, Bermuda and Orchard grass with a low starch feed i.e. Cool Stance by Stance Equine, Purina Mills Ultium Horse Health or Well Being, or else Triple Crown Feed that has several quality low starch feeds within their line.
These are just a few names of the manufacturers who are now making low starch feed today.There are some health problems that can come about when our horses are fed a higher acidic diet, and those problems are commonly referred to as the five man made diseases (colic, ulcers, laminitis, navicular, and tying up).
It has to be noted though, that regardless if you feed a cool diet or a hot diet horses naturally, through the process of digestion, produce acidic waste.
In other words, a hotter diet will produce a more acidic waste than a cool diet.
The Problems with Today’s Horse Feed!
Top nutritional researchers and Dr. Tim Kempton of Stance Equine, all agree there is one undeniable fact; the modern high Non Structural Carbohydrate (NSC) horse feeds do cause serious metabolic disorders in horses, similar to obesity and Type II diabetes that affect humans.
Non Structural Carbohydrate (NSC) is the common term which is used to simplify the sugar and starch content of the feed, ie. the digestible carbohydrates.
NSC was initially used in order to describe the sugar and starch in dairy cow feeds.
Now, just recently, it has been recognized that horses are not able to digest high levels of sugar and starch, and that the NSC levels in horse feed were not being measured correctly in fact not at all!
When horses digest sugar and starch in the stomach and intestines, and absorb glucose, they then release insulin from the pancreas to help the uptake of glucose into the cells, ie. the cells are sensitive to insulin.
When high levels of NSC are fed to horses, the cells become resistant to insulin, and blood glucose levels rise.
Insulin resistance is compatible with metabolic disorders including laminitis, EMS, Cushings, colic. High NSC feeds (>12% NSC) are also related to tying up.
Modern horses are being overfed with high NSC feeds, and under-worked.
The question is “Are you killing your horse with kindness”?
Today these benefits are available for your Horse when you choose the Super501 model by Enagic®
It is the Gold Standard of ionizers.
This unit makes 7 types of water.
When horses and livestock drink restructured micro clustered water it then allows the smaller clusters of molecules to be easily absorbed into the cells, and thus effectively neutralize the lactic acids (acidic waste) which are washed out of the body, which allows the body to heal itself and prevent any future disease.
It is our aim to educate and provide relevant, easy to understand information, backed by science, that will help horse owners understand the alkaline/acid balance.
Horses really do enjoy the taste of alkaline water. Simply change the drinking water to promote and intensify greater health benefits to them by drinking more of the right type of water. Horses are a huge investment and and you are the steward in charge of their well being. You owe it to your horses to keep them in the best physical condition and protect their health with this premium alkaline micro-clustered water.
The Super 501
Is a great solution and asset for your cows and or horses with its ability to make all 7 types of water.
This machine was designed and built for commercial uses such as for hotels, restaurants, Farms and the like..
