Through the addition of the following specific active ingredients, X-Lam Aid Pellets provides a complementary nutritional support for all horses and ponies.

Active Ingredients Why We Use It
Collagen Matrix Collagen is the body's natural glue that is crucial for all connective tissue, including the base membrane of the hoof. Collagen is essential for the integrity of tendons and ligaments and particularly the anchoring points where they are attached to structures like bones and hooves.
Natural Buffer Material Natural buffering material helps support stable, beneficial digestion in the hindgut by providing a neutral environment for friendly bacteria that can be susceptible to acidic conditions. The pH in the digestive tract can be lowered by sugar overload, so restricting grass and providing natural acid buffering, aids micro flora and gut wall integrity.
MT.X+ Microscopic Binder MT.X+ is microscopic absorbent compounds that aid the natural expulsion of antagonists, found in feed and the environment.
Vitamin B Complex B vitamins are essential for maintaining normal, healthy blood flow to all areas of the body, including the mucosal lining of the gut wall and the extremities of the hooves. Blood flow is essential for the supply of active ingredients to maintain normal gut barrier defences and hoof integrity.
Curcumin Curcumin is the active ingredient of the spice, turmeric. It is a natural and powerful antioxidant and supports the normal anti-inflammatory action of the body.
Oligosaccharides Oligosaccharides from yeast cell wall and concentrated oat bran sources that help support natural expulsion of antagonists in the digestive tract and maintain a high level of natural immunity.

Contains the Oatinol® Delivery System

For all of the above active ingredients to be utilised, they have to be absorbed from the horses’ digestive tract. Oatinol supplies natural antioxidants, polar lipids, beta glucans and galactolipid emulsifiers, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.into and out of cells.

Active Ingredient Why we use it
Oatinol - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that help establish the perfect medium for enzyme activity in the gut to absorb feed components.
Oatinol - Natural
Tocotrienol Antioxidants
Tocotrienol antioxidants are found naturally in oat bran. This tocotrienol form of vitamin E is 40 to 60 times more readily recycled in membrane systems and supports tissue integrity.
Oatinol - Oat Derived
Beta Glucans
Beta glucans provide nourishment for beneficial fibre degrading microbes and helps maintain a high level of natural immunity.
Oatinol - Polar Lipids Polar lipids are found in high concentrations in cell membranes and are essential for tissue integrity and the controlled passage of materials into and out of cells.

This product has saved my ponies life! She had EMS and ended up with Lami because of it! 4 months later and even her EMS is cured! She ended up staying in longer as we hadn’t had X-rays… turns out she has a bit of arthiritis on her pedal bone but this product has really helped my girly and she will stay on it forever now

Balancer required?

Michele Whitelaw

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: East Dunbartonshire, United Kingdom

Hi I was just wondering if I need to add a vitamin and mineral balancer among side x-Lam Aid?

  • VioVet Staff

X-Lam Aid mainly contains ingredients to support the hoof laminae and so prevent/aid in managing laminitis. It contains some vitamins (vitamin B) but not a wide selection of minerals/vitamins so it is worth adding an additional balancer alongside if you would like to cover these too.
I recommend checking out GWF OneCup if you are a fan of the GWF range. However this does contain sugar so if your horse is prone to laminitis due to underlying EMS/PPID then I would avoid this and other sugary supplements.
