National Animal Supplement Council (NASC), an industry group dedicated to protecting and enhancing the health of companion animals and horses throughout the United States. Founded in 2001, NASC Members are industry participants and other stakeholders of the finest animal supplements who are committed to the highest current standards of quality in the industry today.

The Council's overriding goal is to promote the health and well-being of non-human food chain animals that are given nutritional supplements by their owners, and to protect and enhance the integrity of the animal supplements industry.

The cornerstone of NASC's mission is to work cooperatively with state, federal, and international governmental officials to create a legislative and regulatory environment that provides a framework that is Fair, Reasonable, Responsible and Nationally Consistent.

Such an environment of safety, accuracy and quality serves the interests of NASC's members by ensuring that ethical manufacturing and labeling practices are complied with throughout the industry.

NASC Seal of Quality…

As part of its ongoing effort to improve and standardize the animal supplement industry, NASC initiated its Quality Seal Program. The Seal is a way for consumers to know that when they buy a product, they buy from a reputable manufacturer that has successfully completed a facility audit. Different from the NASC logo, the Seal is a privilege for members to use on their products and signifies that the company has been audited for the implementation of specific standards. Members must agree to adhere to NASC’s quality standards, part of which includes submitting to an independent audit to ensure conformance with quality system requirements.

 

Calcium is a micromineral found in highest amounts in bone and teeth. However, it also has important roles in supporting muscle contraction, cell membranes, blood clotting, enzymes regulation, and hormone release. Absorption of calcium from the small intestine is controlled by vitamin D but can be reduced if there is too much phosphorus in the diet. Ideally, horses should receive slightly more calcium than phosphorus – a ratio between 1:1 and 2:1. Pregnant and lactating mares, growing horses, and exercising horses may need more dietary calcium than an adult horse at rest. 

Cobalt (Co) is a micromineral used by intestinal microorganisms to produce vitamin B12, which works with iron and copper to form healthy red blood cells.

Copper (Cu) is a micromineral that aids in the production of normal connective tissues including tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. As a component of many enzyme systems, it is also involved in making iron available to the body for blood, in producing skin and coat pigments, in proper nerve signaling and in repairing antioxidants. 

Inositol is closely related to the B-vitamin family and is found in nearly every cell in the body. Because of its location within the cell membrane, it plays two major roles: transporting fats and assisting in nerve transmission. By participating in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter whose brain levels are known to be a factor in excess anxiety, inositol may be helpful in promoting a healthy balanced behavior in horses. 

Magnesium (Mg) is a macro mineral that is frequently recommended for a wide range of equine health conditions. Magnesium helps to maintain normal muscle and nerve function, a healthy heart, healthy immune system and strong bones. Magnesium aids to regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Since a symptom of magnesium deficiency is agitation or anxiety, it is included in many calming supplements.

Manganese is a micromineral that aids in bone formation, growth and reproduction. It also supports carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Supplementation should be considered because not all diets provide the same levels of manganese. It plays an important role in young growing horses as well as active performance horses. 

Potassium (K) is a macromineral commonly referred to as an electrolyte to help support proper muscle function. It helps maintain the body's acid/base balance and hydration status. Muscle weakness, fatigue, and exercise intolerance are likely when potassium deficiency is present.

Salt (sodium chloride or NaCl) plays an important role in maintaining hydration, nerve and muscle function and also helps regulate body's pH balance. Many equine diets can be low in sodium, therefore additional supplementation may be necessary and can vary depend on workload, exercise, weight etc. According to the Nutrient Requirements of Horses (NRC), a 1,100 pound adult horse in no work requires 10 grams of sodium daily, which can be met by giving 1 ounce of salt daily.

Sodium helps support normal nerve and muscle function, as well as transport of many substances (such as glucose) across cell membranes. The two elements (sodium and chloride) are responsible for the regulation of body fluids, as well as the conduction of electrical impulses in nerves and muscles, and are the most important of the minerals known as electrolytes (minerals which are lost in the sweat and urine during exercise stress). There is very little sodium in forages and grains, therefore many equine diets can be low in sodium. Additional supplementation may be necessary and can vary depend on workload, exercise, weight etc. According to the Nutrient Requirements of Horses (NRC), a 1,100 pound adult horse in no work requires 10 grams of sodium daily, which can be met by giving 1 ounce of salt daily.

Zinc (Zn) is a micromineral involved in over 100 enzyme systems ranging from support of connective tissue formation and antioxidants to carbohydrate metabolism and immune system function. It is most recognized for its role in healthy skin and hooves.

Living in the Northwest, we have to be concerned with keeping our many horses hydrated in both cool and warm weather. Apple-Lyte has been an economical and effective product that does just that. Even our picky eaters lick their feed bowls clean when we give them Apple-Lyte! Like the 15lb size, too!

Wonderful product! Sometimes we have "fussy" water drinkers and will completely avoid drinking while at a show. But with Apple-Lyte our horse stay hydrated and can't get a bough of it! Tastes good and is affordable.

I will never be without a bucket of Apple-Lyte in my barn, summer sneaks up on us here in the North so I like to be prepared. My horses love the Apple-Lyte and I love knowing they are being protected from dehydration.
