The B-complex vitamin Biotin is involved in glucose metabolism which powers muscles.
Biotin is one of three ingredients (the others being Zinc & Methionine) that are required in a balanced ratio in order to produce strong keratin (hoof). Feeding Biotin alone will make soft, flaky hooves.
The National Research Council does not have a defined recommended daily amount, however many sources cite 20 mg daily as sufficient for strong hooves when feed along with Methionine and Zinc.
