Better Performance. Quicker Recovery. Improved Focus.
As a World Champion Barrel Racer, a multiple NFR qualifier, Barrel Racing Personality and unequivocally a “Fan Favorite”, Fallon Taylor and her beloved horse, Baby Flo, need little introduction. Recently, Fallon has added a new supplement line to her heavily followed nutrition and training program: ForeFront Equine™. ForeFront supplements are not only used by Baby Flo, but Fallon has a specific product she prefers for each individual horse she rides and trains depending on that horses, age, level of training or special circumstances. Fortunately, ForeFront Nutrition offers 7 different Equine Products to fit her needs, along with 3 more co-branded with Fallon.
What Fallon, along with other top professionals and amateurs alike, love about ForeFront’s products is not only the incredible quality, palatability and ease of product use, but also their packaging. ForeFront’s bright packaging is easily recognizable in a barn or horse trailer. Many of the products come in individual “packets” making the serving not only easy, but also incredibly accurate. The packets allow for simplified and easily organized travel, especially if like Fallon you’re hauling over 76,000 miles a year.
ForeFront’s offers incredible supplements custom formulated using proprietary ingredients not found in any other equine (or canine) supplement available today. What makes ForeFront’s supplement’s superior to others? ForeFront’s products are 100% American Made and are compounded from all natural ingredients, many of which are organic, as well. Many of ForeFront’s products include a proprietary blend of purified nucleotides, plus other essential nutrients. Nucleotides play a critical role in the body by accelerating the cell proliferation and regeneration process. Cell regeneration allows horses to recover more quickly from various stresses including: performance stress, anxiety, illness or injury. The underlying reason for the success lies in the fact that the added nucleotides facilitate an accelerated immune response within an organism. An immune response is simply the animal’s ability to mount an effective defense against malignancies and invading micro-organisms by producing immunoglobulin’s (antibodies). Considering that 70% of an animal’s immune system is in their GI tract, the immune system itself is directly affected by the health of the digestive system. The ability of nucleotides to provide a healthy digestive system are well-documented in clinical and case studies which have shown:
Positive growth of intestinal villi which are vital for nutrient absorption
Reduction in pathogens such as E.coli
Increase in beneficial bacteria to help have a balance microbial balance in the G.I. tract
Help in maintaining weight, especially during times of stress
Used worldwide in human nutrition to address conditions such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), the common cold and influenza, along with athletic recovery, just to name just a few. Pure nucleotides are also used in companion animal, bovine, swine, aquaculture and avian diets worldwide due to their continued beneficial results.
Fallon has been a longtime fan of ForeFront’s ForeRunner™ Paste. ForeRunner™, which contains not only nucleotides but also pre-and-pro biotics, electrolytes, and colostrum, along with a host of other beneficial all natural ingredients. Following Fallon’s lead, ForeRunner™ has quickly become a favorite on the competitive Barrel Racing scene. ForeRunner™ comes in an easy dispensing tube and may be used either pre or post event — or both! ForeRunner allows horses to settle and focus their energy on their performance, not their anxiety, allowing for more speed and greater accuracy. ForeRunner™ is all natural and WILL NOT TEST!
“I have always used a digestive tract product,” said Fallon Taylor, “I think pre and probiotics are very important to a horse’s health during changing climates and weather, as well as during the stress of travel or performance. Using ForeFront’s pre-measured paste allows me to know exactly how much Baby Flo is getting and ForeRunner™ is now a solid part of our routine!” Fallon Taylor
Another Fallon favorite is AllStar™, which she primarily uses on Baby Flo and when travelling. AllStar™ is an all-inclusive formula that combines four different ForeFront products into one, easy to feed, supplement. AllStar™ includes both egg membrane and MSM for joint support, curcumin to control inflammation, along with equine specific probiotics and organic papaya for digestive health. AllStar’s™ other key ingredient include Colostrum for immune support and nucelotides to promote cell performance and regeneration. Additionally the blend includes a proprietary herb combination that supports optimal lung function.
“I primarily use AllStar on Baby Flo while hauling down the road” said Fallon. “In one convenient packet, I’m able to feed her a supplement that is all-inclusive. I can help protect her joints, fight inflammation, and keep her digestive health in tip top shape!”
ForeFront Nutrition™ offers not only a comprehensive line of top-shelf supplements for horses, they also offer a line of Canine products. What’s new for ForeFront Nutrition? A line of Equine treats, along with a new Electrolyte Paste, either as a standalone or a complement to ForeRunner™, co-branded with Fallon.
