APF (Advanced Protection Formula) is a synergistic blend of phytonutrients called adaptogens and represents an entirely new approach to equine nutrition.
APF’s broad protective benefits support your horse’s natural ability to “adapt” to stress. These unique nutrients guard against the damaging effects of stress through every stage of your horse’s life — beginning with the developing musculo-skeletal and immune systems of the foal to the geriatric needs of the senior equine companion.

“A miracle in a bottle.”
APF (Advanced Protection Formula) is a synergistic blend of phytonutrients called adaptogens and represents an entirely new approach to equine nutrition. APF is the first adaptogenic herbal formula backed by university-level research.
Developed by an equine veterinarian, APF has proven to be one of the most valuable nutritional tools available from foals to senior horses. It has proved especially effective in supporting horses with insulin resistance or Equine Metabolic Syndrome. It is also extremely useful in helping to support horses with Cushing’s disease as part of an overall treatment program prescribed by your veterinarian.
The four adaptogenic herbs in APF provide nutritional support for the three most common problems associated with insulin resistance and Cushing’s disease – glucose metabolism, immune support, and overall stress protection. They do this by helping to re-establish sensitivity to insulin so that the cells can better utilize circulating blood glucose, providing support for optimal T-cell function to help maintain a robust immune response to challenges, and by helping your horse to balance cortisol levels when they experience stress.
If ulcers are a concern for any number of reasons, such as unusual confinement, extended use of pain medication, or a reduction in feed, then you might consider our formula, APF Plus.
