Equine Challenge™ Pro Amino contains all 10 major essential amino acids* plus 6 non essentials (Alanine, Arginine*, Cystine, Glycine, Histidine*, Isoleucine*, Leucine*, Lysine*, Methione*, Phenylalanine*, Proline, Serine, Threonine*, Tryptophen*, Tyrosine, Valine*). Equine Challenge™ Pro Amino comes in a milled flaxseed base with added chia seed. Both flaxseed and chia seed are excellent sources for amino acids.
Equine Challenge™ Pro Amino can be used to boost the amino acid content of your equine diets and contains no added vitamins or minerals.
PROteins are composed of units called amino acids. PROteins are synthesized from available amino acids that are ingested or synthesized by the horse and are used to build Muscle, Bone, Blood Components, Hormones, Peptides, Antibodies.
Amino acids are needed for protein synthesis, and several can be made by tissues of the body. However, ten of these amino acids, known as essential amino acids, must be supplied to the horse through dietary sources: Arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. If you’re not sure your horse is getting enough, supplementing with Equine Challenge™ Pro Amino will ease your mind.
For situations in which protein requirements will be higher, such as growth, pregnancy, and lactation, be sure to re-evaluate your horse’s ration to make sure all requirements are being met.
Equine Challenge™ Pro Amino Feeding Instructions:
Feed one scoop daily.
Provide to horses at the rate of approximately 45 grams per day (1 scoop). Usage rate may be adjusted proportionately (based on weight) for younger horses, lighter breed or heavier breeds. etc…. Daily dosage may be divided to accommodate multiple feedings.
*Proteins should be fed at the same time vitamins and minerals are fed

Arginine – can help the horse by preventing muscle loss and to restore lost muscle. In the muscle, it works as a building block for creatine. The horses body needs creatine to build and maintain healthy, strong muscles. In the arteries, it increases nitric oxide (NO). NO helps keep the endothelial cells healthy. Accelerates wound and burn healing.
Histidine – necessary for growth. An important constituent of muscle. Stimulates production of red and white blood cells. Helps treat arthritis.
Isoleucine – Used for muscular energy production. Helps treat nervous system degeneration.
Leucine – Maintains muscle strength during times of physical stress and intensive exercise. Inhibits breakdown of muscle proteins. Stimulates insulin release.
Lysine – The most important amino acid for improving growth in young horses. The major amino acid used as a standard for dietary content in growing horses. Aids in formation of antibodies to control viral infection. Important in fat metabolism. Supports hoof and coat health along with providing support for the immune system.
Methionine – Regulates cell metabolism and growth, antioxidant, constituent of muscles. Supports healthy skin, hooves, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.
Phenylalanine – Antidepressant and aids in pain relief for the horse.
Threonine – Essential for optimum growth, feed conversion and nitrogen balance in tissues. Component of digestive enzymes, immune system and muscle systems.
Tryptophan – Regulates growth hormone. May aid in control of nervous behavior. Promotes feed intake. Precursor for production of serotonin
Valine – Vital for muscle coordination. Metabolized in the muscle – energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
