If you'd like a consultation with our biochemist about your horse, all we ask is that you fill out, and return, our Equine Case History Questionnaire. You can provide any test results you may have regarding: water quality, veterinary diagnosis and/or laboratory tests, etc.


Hair Analysis & Systemic Element Levels Testing

Our biochemist has chosen Doctors Data, Inc. to provide our customers with hair elements analysis. With a solid reputation, they have been our laboratory of choice since 1979. Doctors Data has recently described this particular test as:

A measurement of toxic and essential elements

Inexpensive and noninvasive

Extensive research has established that scalp hair element levels are related to human systemic levels. The strength of this relationship varies for specific elements, and many researchers consider hair as the tissue of choice for toxic and several nutrient elements. Unlike blood, hair element levels are not regulated by homeostatic mechanisms. Thus, deviations in hair element levels often appear prior to overt symptoms, and hair analysis can thereby be a valuable preliminary tool for predicting the development of physiological abnormalities.

The volume of, at least, one packed tablespoon of hair is required to complete analysis. Hair samples taken from the chest of animals and back of the head on humans are preferable.

Send your sample and contact information via USPS to our headquaters, and we'll send it to our lab at a bundled rate to briing you the best possible price on the highest quality analysis.


Only Pure Nutrients to Maintain and Improve Health on a Biochemical Level

Vita Royal Products Inc. was established in 1977 in response to the recycled contaminants in food act that was passed in the same year. This act allowed, and continues to allow, the recycling of heavy metals and hazardous chemical waste into fertilizers that supply nutrients for the crops that feed our animals and, in some cases, people as well. These toxins are absorbed into the crops and thus deposited into the animals who eat the processed version(s) of these crops.

Our goal has always been to provide a healthier option for these animals, be they performance horses, pets, cows or chickens for slaughter.

Why Our Products Are Superior to the Competition

We use only pharmaceutical grade ingredients (USP), which are the absolute highest quality ingredients available in the world.

We do not make any products which contain fillers, so a little goes a long way.

All of our products are formulated so that the bioavailability of each ingredient is maximized.

Most importantly, our products work to restore normal, healthy biochemistry; from performance horses to seemingly hopeless and dire cases.

Clinical Trial: EPSM/PSSM

Merlin's Case History

Belgian warmblood, 1/4 TB, age 6, grey, 1,700 lbs., 17 H

Dx by University of Minnesota, veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory “Moderate Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy (PSSM), resembles type 2, but genetic testing would be required to definitely rule out type 1 PSSM.”

Condition of horse: Looks good for weight, but no energy and any amount of trotting taxes him.Stumbles and shuffles and cannot pick up his feet.

History: Appears from old photos to have gotten off to a difficult start. Looks like contracted tendons and epiphysitis have compromised his early life for a time. Owner reports that he was born severely parrot mouthed and took 12 hours to be able to latch on and nurse.

Possible environmental contamination exposure: mine tailings in area, known for heavy metals

Hair analysis shows high concentrations of heavy metals including thorium, which is radioactive.

Hair Analysis:

In the owner’s words: “Merlin is a 6 year old registered Belgian Warmblood gelding.  I purchased his mother (Cali - Belgian WB/TB) as a 5 month old and had her until she died at 12 years of age.  She gave birth to Merlin as a 9 year old.  His father is Belgian Warmblood stallion Rolando, sire of Robert Dover's 2000 Olympic mount Ranier.

I know now that Merlin's intermittent lameness issues and general lack of energy begins with his mother, Cali.  Merlin has recently been diagnosed with Type I PSSM, a heritable metabolic/muscular disorder that is diagnosed via a muscle biopsy.  10-12 years ago when I was experiencing similar problems with Cali, there was no test and vets were stymied as to the cause of her intermittent lameness and lack of energy problems.  It got so bad that one day after months and months of frustrating training, I mounted Cali to ride in a lesson and immediately felt that something was wrong, I felt her knees buckle underneath me and she could barely stand up.  I said to my trainer, "she feels like she is going to fall over".  My trainer suggested I get off, remove the saddle and allow her to roll if she wanted to.  Beautiful Cali laid down in the dirt with her knees tucked up and rested her chin in the dirt - no rolling, nothing, she didn't move for over a half an hour.  I, nor my trainer, had ever seen anything like it.  I was in tears knowing that there was something very wrong.  She was so tired she literally could not stand up.  Of course I called the vet and he came out and simply said "I think she's colic-ing", he oiled her and left.  I knew this wasn't colic, he just needed to have an answer and that was the most simple explanation.  My trainer suggested I contact Linsey McLean, biochemist for Vita Royal Products, to consult with her on a nutritional program.  Linsey explained to me that Cali basically had a horsey version of "industrial disease/environmentally driven illness” - her standard pelleted feed diet was deficient of nutrient value and it was likely that she was sensitive to environmental toxins.  Linsey suggested changes to a more natural diet that was nutritionally balanced and she improved dramatically within a short period of time.  She lived the rest of her life on a simple balanced, nutritionally sound diet and died at 12 from unrelated problems.  Little did I know that 12 years later I would be contacting Linsey again with similar frustrations and training issues - lack of energy and intermittent/undiagnosable lameness.  There is nothing on radiographs, some days the horse is sound, some days he can hardly move.  You ride each day thinking "this horse is supposed to get stronger, more balanced and it's supposed to get easier".  It doesn't, they are getting weaker and weaker, stumbling more and more, one day your horse almost falls over, you certainly can't canter or ride outside, you'll be taking your life in your hands...   there is a big problem.    The only difference now is this time, it is her son Merlin.

Merlin was born so perfect and gorgeous I could hardly believe that this was MY horse.  So many hopes and dreams of happy rides together.  He grew up big and strong and so sweet and gentle.  This horse has never been mishandled, pushed or stressed.  He lives outside 24/7 and I've always been careful because he has a tendency towards gaining weight easily - just like me... and his mother. Cali.  He was backed at three and ridden a handful of times then put back out with his friends to grow up for a year.  At 4 he was ridden lightly about 3x per week but we knew he was going to be a big guy - 17+ hands and I was in no rush to get him trained so in that first year we kept his training very simple and straightforward.  He happily and easily walked, trotted and cantered in balance, there were few issues.  He was a happy, willing and comfortable horse.

At some point it changed.  I can't tell you when or how but there has been a gradual but obvious decline to the point he is now...  unhappy, unwilling and uncomfortable.  I have had the vet out 6 times in the last year.  He has had pictures taken of his front feet, no cause for lameness found.  The vet still felt there was something wrong with his front legs - possible strain to his DDFT, etc, etc.  Nothing concrete or definitive, until now...  three weeks ago my vet suggested that we test Merlin for PSSM with a muscle biopsy.  The test results are positive.  Finally an explanation for the problems and frustrations going back to his mother even.  What a relief. 

Which brings me to today, my first call was to Linsey McLean.  Linsey assures me that PSSM is a disease of management - nutrition and exercise.  She is confident that Merlin will go forward and live a productive, happy and sound life.  I fell like we are just starting on this journey together and am excited to see my beautiful horse fulfill his potential. 

Here, he is as a foal:

Video at the top:
Owner reports: “Movement is stiffened and appears sore all over. I took his first video, he was very tired. It was a lot of work for him and hopefully you can see that he just does not have any energy and during the short amount of time he was working he stumbled twice, pretty badly.  You may also notice that the more he worked, the more he just HUNG his head down and out.  It did not look comfortable or happy.  He is such a sweet horse but he's definitely not comfortable.“

“I split screen my computer and watched them side by side.  I thought he looked ALOT different/better.” He is continuing to progress into the horse he was meant to be. Time difference is less than 4 weeks.

Vita Royal Recycles:
our green packaging

We use as much recycled materials for packaging as we can.

From shredded packing material, to reused packing material, to reused/recycled shipping boxes; we are doing our part to eliminate waste and reduce costs.

Through co-operative corporate relationships, these recycled materials come from other companies that receive products primarily for a retail sales floor, and they don't do much outbound shipping. These companies would ordinarily pay to process their packing waste by weight. Instead, we take that cost burden off their hands (and reduce our own costs) by simply reusing these materials.

We are proud to take part in corporate co-operative initiatives that ease the cost of doing business for the whole Vita Royal community.
