Daily feeding of BioThrive® supports and helps maintain normal immune function for:

  • Gut: Proven to help maintain normal intestinal health.
  • Joints: Helps support your horse during normal daily exercise. 
  • Lungs: Supports the normal integrity and function of lungs.

LIFELINE Equine performance products work fast. Studies have shown that results begin as soon as 14-days

LIFELINE Equine doesn’t contain the typical vitamin, mineral or herbal ingredients you find in so many products.

Blood plasma contains powerful components that can help support and maintain normal health. Plasma is the straw-colored liquid portion of blood that remains after red blood cells, white blood cells and other cellular components are removed. Plasma transports cells and many substances vital to the body and carries out important functions.

Comprised of 90% water, plasma makes up more than half of the volume of blood and in addition to other components, it contains hundreds of different proteins at varying concentrations. Proteins are a very important component of plasma and 95% of these proteins are albumins and globulins.

SAFE FOR HORSES?

Yes. At LIFELINE Equine, the welfare of horses is top priority. There are more than 400 peer-reviewed studies and published journal articles demonstrating the efficacy and safety of the plasma-based proteins. In addition, accredited university testing concluded that LIFELINE Equine is safe for horses.

LIFELINE Equine performance products are show safe. As part of our safety testing, blood and urine samples were sent to an independent accredited university lab for drug testing. The samples were all free of substances banned by racing and showing industries.

LIFELINE Equine performance products are made with natural ingredients but are not intended for human consumption. 

GENERAL

We know there are plenty of finicky horses out there. There are also plenty of horses that will eat anything! Most horses have eaten our products without issue. If your horse is finicky, we recommend reducing the initial dose or spreading it out over several days until your horse is used to it.
