Frequently Asked Questions

What is PowerStance
PowerStance is a high energy feed supplement containing 70% natural coconut oil and is a rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MTCs). It may be used as a non grain source of energy. 

Do I have to reduce the quantity of CoolStance I feed if I add in PowerStance?
No not at all! Because PowerStance is simply coconut oil, its use will compound the affects of natural coconut meal. 

Why Feed Oil?
Oils may be added to the diet as a source of ‘non-fizzy” feed. When starch (typically in the form of grain), is fed to horses in large quantities, there is a risk of starch overload into the hindgut. This may culminate in “fizzy” behaviour. The risk of starch overload may be minimized by replacing some grain in the feed with oil, to provide energy.  

Soy Vs Coconut Oil?
Coconut Oil and Soy Oil are both used as ‘cool & safe’ sources of concentrated energy and are fed for conditioning, coat shine and weight gain, or to supply extra energy in the diets of hard-working horses.  Their similarities and differences are described as follows: Coconut Oil is a highly stable tropical oil, meaning that Coconut Oil is usually not prone to rancidity and maintains its nutrient status over long periods.  Coconut oil contains mainly saturated fatty acids of short and medium chain length which are quickly metabolized and available for use as ready energy. 

Produced from soybeans, commercially available soy oils are often highly refined and have usually been chemically extracted. Soy Oil is rich in long chain fatty acids and contains predominantly polyunsaturated fatty acids, making it prone to rancidity.

Can PowerStance be fed to Competition/Race horses?
PowerStance is 100% natural, and much easier to handle than and store than liquid oils. PowerStance will not return a positive swab.  

What are MCT (medium chain triglycerides)?
Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids that are easier to digest, absorb and utilize in comparison to the long-chain fatty acids found in other oils such as maize, soy, canola and rice-bran oil. Medium chain fatty acids appear to behave more like glucose than fat in the body and are preferentially oxidized to generate energy over long-chain fatty acids, meaning coconut oil provides a ready source of energy for use during exercise.
