Nutritional Supplement for Optimal Immune System Activity

Many horses can suffer from immune-related problems in times of hard training, stress or poor health. Coughs and colds can cause unnecessary down-time, health complications or infect other horses in a stable. Kohnke’s Own Activ-8 has selected immune-active nutrients which help maintain the health and responsiveness of the equine immune system. Activ-8 can help support immune function in horses following general sickness, including coughs, colds and respiratory viral illness, for optimal recovery time.

Horses which are regularly travelling and competing may pick up respiratory viruses from other horses at events, especially if regular training has caused immune suppression from long term stress or reduced availability of immune co-factor nutrients.

Horses benefit from a short course of Activ-8 prior to long distance travel, hard competition or during relocation to a new environment, where the optimum function of the immune system is paramount to health and performance

Kohnke's Concept for Activ-8
Activ-8 includes nutrients in that have been scientifically shown to improve immune function and are critically important to equine health and vitality. Activ-8 is a targeted supplement to give when your horse is immune challenged, ‘under the weather’, at risk of infection or when meeting new horses at competitions. Activ-8 contains a premium, organic chelated form of selenium (as selenomethionine), which has been proven as more effective to help immune function in horses than commonly used inorganic selenium compounds such as sodium selenite and selenate. Activ-8 provides nutrients necessary for optimal wound healing to help reduce secondary bacterial infections and promote skin regeneration. Activ-8 is recommended when horses have repeated bouts of skin infections, such as ‘greasy heel’ or ‘rain scald’, which may indicate poor immune function.
