Product Data Sheet
Fore74 is an organic, all-natural trace mineral supplement that contains an eco-friendly source of 74 trace minerals. Fore74 contains the purest, contaminant free coral calcium in the world as it is free of any additives, metals or fillers. Fore74 is harvested from an above sea coral mine not from the ocean floor which can devastate the oceanic ecosystem. Unfortunately, other companies do take dead coral rubble from the ocean. Dredging the ocean floor devastates the ocean ecology and is detrimental to the living reefs.
Fore74 is organic, eco-friendly, human-grade and 99.9% soluble. Why is this important? A near 100% solubility means that your equine athlete will absorb 100% of the calcium and the other 73 minerals in the product. Other calcium based products (i.e. calcium carbonate) have a solubility between 65 and 74%. Other calcium products are also much higher in metal contamination and lower in overall trace mineral content. Fore74 is even more unique because the product is ground into an ultra-small micron size to maximize absorption.
Each batch is laboratory-tested and assayed to ensure quality and guaranteed minerals. Chemical analysis shows that it naturally mimics the mineral concentration of the body and provides significant health benefits. Coral calcium raises the protective alkaline levels (pH) within the body, so your horse has more life-giving oxygen being supplied to every cell to help fight premature cell aging and unfriendly invaders. Coral calcium is a whole food that’s not only vital for strong bones and teeth, but for the cardiovascular and nervous system, as well.
7 reasons why Fore74 is unlike any other product trace mineral supplement on the equine market:
1). The coral calcium has an organic certificate due to its above ground coral and oyster shell source.
2). Has Kosher and Halal certificates.
3). Is traceable back to its original source as all mined minerals are “geo fenced.”
4). Meets U.S. and European pharmaceutical requirements for supplements and excipients.
5). Exceeds California Proposition 65 which are the toughest in the United States.
6). Solubility of 99.9 % plus
7). Calcium content no less than at 40%
Documented Benefits of Coral Calcium
Calcium is known for its bone support qualities and this is especially true for coral calcium. A study published in 2010 in the “Journal of Oral Implantology” revealed that bone tissue was grown in the presence of coral calcium. The researchers implanted graphs that contained coral calcium with steel rods into the bones of mice that led to accelerated bone growth compared to controls. The researchers noted that coral calcium improved bone growth by roughly 36 percent.
The most commonly used calcium in equine supplements is calcium carbonate. In a study published in “Japan Nutrition and Food Society,” four kinds of calcium were studied: 1) coral calcium 2) calcium carbonate 3) milk calcium 4) cow bone calcium. The study found that the coral calcium group had the highest value of reserved calcium and the highest absorption rate at 69.6%. The coral calcium group also had the highest value in HDL (good) cholesterol when compared to the other three groups.
An Everyday Use Nutritional Supplement
Fore74 is a product that can be easily integrated into any feed program, age, and style of competition. The trace mineral selenium is the initial concern for some horse owners who are concerned about mineral supplementation. Fore74 contains a low level of selenium (only .25 ppm) allowing you to feed it daily without the concern of selenium toxicity.
Trace minerals deliver essential nutrients for overall horse health and performance. The highly bio-available trace minerals found in Fore74 are required for numerous functions in the animal, including:
- Cell division to support hoof wall growth and repair
- Hoof wall protein synthesis
- Synthesis and maintenance of elastic connective tissue
- Cross-linkage formation in collagen and elastin
- Bond formation in hoof wall proteins for rigidity
- Antioxidant activity to protect cell membrane
Joints and Skeleton
- Cell division and protein synthesis for skeletal growth and repair
- Formation of connective tissue (tendons and ligaments,) bones, and cartilage lining joints
- Chondroitin sulfate synthesis which is important for formation, maintenance and repair of joint cartilage
- Bone development and maintenance
- Humoral immunity: antibody titers in response to vaccination
- Cell-mediated immunity
- Non-specific immunity
- Antioxidant activity to remove free radicals and protect cell membranes
Skin and Coat
- Epidermal (skin) cell maintenance through cell division and protein synthesis.
- Facilitates wound healing
- Production and maintenance of skin and hair pigmentation
- Cecal fiber digestion by bacteria resulting in increased energy availability from forage
- Vitamin B12 synthesis
Fore74 is one of the most complete trace mineral supplements you will find on the market. Not only is it certified organic but its 99.9% solubility gives you the satisfaction and confidence that your equine athlete is getting the most out of every scoop. From macro-minerals calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium, chlorine, and sulfur to micro-minerals copper, iodine, iron, manganese, selenium, and zinc Fore74 has you and your horse covered.
