About Supa-licious Equine Treats

Supa-licious Equine Treats are created from quality ingredients by owner Rebecca Supple at her home in QLD in Dec 2014 for her beloved horse Champ.  Rebecca is the daughter of legendary Horse Master, Ray Winslade (dec).  Having grown up in the Australia film industry, horses are certainly in her blood.  Having tried many different treats on the market, she was not sure they were what she was looking! 

So, after lots of experiments in her kitchen (some not so good) and her family saying 'is there anything for dinner'!! She came up with the texture, smell and most importantly 'healthier' option ingredients based on coconut that she was looking for!

The treats are firm enough to put in your pocket and not hard. They smell delicious and are made from all quality ingredients - Yummo! They are user friendly for the owner and delicious for the horse!  A treat even the owner wished they could eat... Super excited with her creation and the fact Champ loved them too, it was decided they would be called Supa-licious Equine Treats!

Supa-licious Equine Treats is a family owned and operated business, with Rebecca actively involved in every aspect of the process to ensure their premium range of treats are just as she created them to be - delicious, yummy bites of goodness made from the finest quality ingredients!

Turmeric (Curcuma Longa)

Turmeric contains the active ingredient curcumin which is reputed to be an anti-inflammatory, reducing the impact of overloaded inflammatory pathways in the body. It may assist with different diseases including allergies, arthritis and inflammatory skin conditions, insulin resistance, and blood flow in the body. Animals fed curcumin have had a reduction of blood cholesterol levels ( LDL fraction) and blood triglycerides and phospholipids when elevated are associated with the disturbed lipid metabolism. As a second stage detoxifier for the liver, turmeric protects the liver from inflammation and elimination of residual toxins from drug therapy and stress. Ground Black Pepper to assist activating the bioavailability of the curcumin.

Coconut Oil 

The nutritional and antimicrobial benefits of coconut oil increases muscle glycogen storage - Saturated fats such as those found in coconut oil are more effective at enhancing muscle glycogen storage than the unsaturated fats. Coconut oil contains MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) which are easier to digest, absorb and convert to muscle energy than the long-chain fatty acids found in other vegetable oils. By improving gut health the body is assisted with its own anti-viral and antibacterial protection mechanisms.

Apple Cider Vinegar

May act as a natural antibiotic, increase joint function and balance pH levels -acid/alkaline ratio in the body. Also widely known for its benefit in preventing arthritis and improving joint movement along with helping to oxygenate the blood to maintain suppleness and mobility throughout the entire body.

Honey

Honey consists of enzymes that may enhance the digestion of foods, mainly carbohydrates. Honey is known as a natural prebiotic, and the consumption of honey may help gut health through increasing bifidobacteria populations.
