Cool Stance copra has been administered as a quality supplement to horses for over 30 years.
Cool Stance copra is made from the white part of the coconut, which has been dried, baked and ground. It is a totally natural product and is chemical and GMO free. The oil in Cool Stance (coconut oil) is saturated and rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCT). This means it is highly stable (not prone to rancidity) and can provide your horse with ready, non glucose energy.
Cool Stance copra is a unique source of energy because it has low Non Structural Carbohydrate (NSC), and yet has a high digestible energy content. Cool Stance is packed with ‘cool' energy from coconut oil and fibre in coconut meal. Cool Stance copra is suitable for most horses and can be given to support a natural state of gut health and insulin sensitivity, ie normal insulin metabolism.
Cool Stance is rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) which are absorbed directly into the portal blood and provide readily digestible energy. MCT are unlike most other oils (soy, corn, flaxseed) which are polyunsaturated, and are slowly digested. MCT from coconut oil may have antimicrobial actions from the Lauric and Caprylic acid. MCT are thought to support a healthy gut.
Most horses enjoy the taste of Cool Stance. It is rich in quality protein, and the oil assists with coat condition. Cool Stance may support horses with metabolic disorders including tying up, laminitis or excitable behavior.
100% Pure Coconut Meal 3/23/20: Email from Robin Garner at Stance Equine USA: “The coconuts in Cool Stance are wild harvested, so they are not grown with any pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fer. We have a GMO free designation, but Cool Stance is not labeled 'organic' by any overseeing entity.”
