Reashure XC is an encapsulated choline supplement designed to meet the transition dairy cow’s dietary choline requirements. Protecting choline from rumen degradation ensures it is absorbed in the small intestine and therefore more available to the cow. This helps the liver process and metabolise fat, especially during the critical transition period. A healthy and properly functioning liver will help cows transition more smoothly, creating a faster, healthier and more productive start to their lactation.
Choline’s Critical Roles
- Supports Fat Metabolism— Cows experience hormonal changes and negative energy balance around calving time which causes fat to be mobilized from body stores. Choline is essential for effective fat transport out of the liver.
- Supports Milk and Milk Fat Synthesis—The cow’s liver uses choline to package the mobilized fat into very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) which are then transported to the mammary gland and either used as a fuel source or synthesized into milk fat.
- Reduces Fatty Liver and Ketosis—If cows are deficient in choline, fat cannot be transported out of the liver and is stored there. As fat accumulation increases, additional fat is diverted toward production of ketones which enter the blood stream and may elevate to the point of toxicity (ketosis). Clinical and sub-clinical ketosis causes reduced feed intake and reduced milk yield.
