Cell-Vital Premium
Premium Concentrated Bone Mineral, Trace-Mineral and Vitamin Supplement with Active Yeast Components
Cell-Vital PREMIUM is a comprehensive formulation to meet the elevated needs of race horses in training, regular racing and performance horses in high intensity competition.  Cell-Vital PREMIUM features premium forms of chelated trace-minerals and potency-protected vitamins, including higher levels of iron (3 forms for optimal absorption) and muscle antioxidants to power performance in hard working horses.

Cell-Vital PREMIUM contains live active yeast with scientifically proven benefits in reducing hindgut acidity for horses fed high grain diets, plus nucleotides and other active yeast components, which have multiple roles in assisting conversion of feed to energy, as well as helping digestive efficiency & immune function.

Product Information
Many horses can suffer from immune-related problems in times of hard training, stress or poor health.  Coughs and colds can cause unnecessary down-time, health complications or infect other horses in a stable. Kohnke’s Own Activ-8 has selected immune-active nutrients which help maintain the health and responsiveness of the equine immune system.  Activ-8 can help support immune function in horses following general sickness, including coughs, colds and respiratory viral illness, for optimal recovery time. Horses which are regularly travelling and competing may pick up respiratory viruses from other horses at events, especially if regular training has caused immune suppression from long term stress or reduced availability of immune co-factor nutrients.  Horses benefit from a short course of Activ-8 prior to long distance travel, hard competition or during relocation to a new environment, where the optimum function of the immune system is paramount to health and performance

Supplementation Guidelines

Each level scoopful of Cell-Vital Premium provides 40 grams (LARGE END) and 15 grams (SMALL END) of the double ended scoop.

Simple supplementation rates from 80 – 120 grams per day (for horses 500 kg bodyweight) provide a practical guideline for supplementing the diets of horses in early training or regular racing.

All-in-one supplement, all you need to add is a salt mix to perfectly balance rations of grains or extruded base feeds, chaff and hay, saving money and time during feed up!

Even when feeding prepared, commercial ‘complete’ feeds designed for high intensity work, many race trainers choose to boost nutrient content and optimise energy efficiency by adding 80 g of Cell-Vital PREMIUM to the ration for the last 5 days before and after racing.

Frequently Asked Questions
What level of work should my horse be at to benefit from Cell-Vital PREMIUM?
Cell-Vital PREMIUM is a supplement designed for horses in hard work and high intensity training.  These include racehorses in preparation and regular racing, polo horses, elite performance horses in equestrian sports and other horses working hard most days a week.

These horses have elevated needs of many important nutrients, including iron, selenium, chromium and vitamins A, C and E.  Cell-Vital PREMIUM meets the needs of these horses in an all-in-one supplement with premium nutrients for better uptake, absorption and utilisation.

Why is Cell-Vital PREMIUM beneficial for upper level performance and racing horses?
Cell-Vital PREMIUM ensures all the elevated needs of upper level performance and racing horses are met with multiple categories of nutrients in this 5 individual mixed pellet blend.

Cell-Vital PREMIUM includes three forms of iron included to help maintain the blood and oxygen delivery in hard working or racing horses.  These include organic chelated iron and high purity iron carbonyl for ultimate benefit without needing extra iron injections pre-race.  Cell-Vital PREMIUM also includes high levels of antioxidants for better recovery after hard training, regular racing or elite level performance.

Cell-Vital PREMIUM also helps ensure a good appetite with live yeasts, containing bioactive nucleotides, which enhance digestive processes in racing horses to improve food conversion to energy for performance and athletic ability.

Flexible supplementation rates detailed on the label provide guidelines for all types of elite performance horses.  The formulation is regularly updated to the latest NRC and INRA recommendations, including additional validated research in equine nutrition and exercise physiology

How is Cell-Vital PREMIUM different to the other Kohnke’s Own Ration Balancing Supplements, such as Cell-Perform?
Cell-Vital PREMIUM is a high potency supplement with more iron, vitamin C and certain B group vitamins, especially vitamin B12, which meets the elevated needs of horses in high intensity training, racing and competition.  Cell-Vital PREMIUM includes all the ‘bells and whistles’ of a premium supplement with live active yeasts, nucleotides and other premium nutrients in an exclusive, all-in-one formulation. It is particularly beneficial for sprint-style horse sports which need optimum conversion of feed to energy to perform at high aerobic capacity.

In contrast, Kohnke’s Own Cell-Perform has a different balance of concentrated muscle antioxidants to support horses in impulsion and collection sports which require stamina and strength for moderate to advanced equestrian movements in training and competition.

Cell-Vital PREMIUM has the Kohnke’s Own exclusive difference, a patented technology which separates nutrients into compatible groups for optimum potency and stability.  Cell-Vital PREMIUM is a blend of 5 separate, compatible ‘Supplet®’ pellets to eliminate wastage, sift-out, dust, sludging and particularly, loss of potency from destructive nutrient interactions.  The concentrated dose with separate, cold-pressed and colour coded pellets can be mixed into wet and dry feeds without loss of nutrient advantage.

Is Cell-Vital PREMIUM just a better quality version of Cell-Vital?
No, they are designed for different types of horses.  Cell-Vital is a basic, straight-forward ration balancer blend of separate pellets containing trace-minerals and vitamins.  In contrast, Cell-Vital PREMIUM includes all the premium extras, such as higher levels of bone minerals, iron, vitamin C, vitamin E and B group vitamins, plus added active yeasts for hindgut digestive function.  This reflects the elevated needs for racing and high performance horses.

Most working horses can be nutritionally balanced with a half-dose of Cell-Vital PREMIUM, although it is advised to check with our team of Nutritional Advisors to decide on the optimum product and ration balance for your horse.

Why is Cell-Vital PREMIUM less expensive than other Kohnke’s Own Ration Balancers?
Many customers ask why Cell-Vital PREMIUM is cheaper per pack size than Cell-Vital or Kohnke’s Own Cell-Perform.  This is due to the higher dose rate of Cell-Vital Premium, which reduces the number of daily doses supplied in each bucket.   We priced Cell-Vital PREMIUM at a cheaper level per kilo than our other ration balancers to still provide an economical supplement for large racing and top performance stables, even though the days supply is reduced in comparison for each pack.
What else do I need to feed with Cell-Vital PREMIUM?
Cell-Vital PREMIUM has a comprehensive formulation to fulfil the essential micronutrient shortfalls in grain, hay, chaff and commercial prepared feeds.  It is designed as an all-in-one supplement, the only addition you need to add is salt and electrolytes relative to the sweat level of the horse each day.

Cell-Vital PREMIUM doesn’t contain salts, as these would affect the potency and stability of the supplement (salts oxidise sensitive vitamins).  A great salt mix which contains all critical electrolytes is our Cell-Salts (or Troppo-Salts for horses in hot and very humid regions which may be prone to anhydrosis if in hard work).  Follow directions on the pack as a guide to tailor the salt amount to the sweat level of your horses each day.

Can Cell-Vital PREMIUM be used on race day?
Cell-Vital PREMIUM doesn’t contain any nutrients that swab.  However, rules prohibiting the use of any pre-race supplements should be followed if required by local Racing or Competition authorities.
“Really love Kohnke’s Own Products. My mare Zed was a really hard horse to tailor a diet for. I am now using Energy Gold, Cell Vital Premium Cell Salts, E-Se Supplets, Mag-E and Muscle XL. Both my horses have improved out of sight since being on these products. The best was when Zed won her first race 6 months after starting on Kohnke’s Own products.” Monique C. M, WA.
