Alltech's Lifeforce™ premium equine supplements were developed through decades of research on nutrition’s impact on genetic potential to include the ideal blend of ingredients for optimal horse health and performance. This unique approach has led to the development of highly effective horse supplements that are pure, perfectly modulated and 100% digestible.

The science is advanced, but the philosophy is simple — wellness begins from within.
