Racing Recovery Support for horses.
Electrolyte +BCAA +B Vitamins +Vitamin C +Vitamin E
Formulated to replace essential nutrients lost in racing, training, competition and transport.
- Horses prone to ‘tying up’
Sweating results in the loss of essential electrolyte. If these losses are not replaced, metabolic imbalances may occur. These can result in lactic acid build up, dehydration, decreased performance and tying ups.
Sodium and Chloride
Has a role in maintaining normal electrolyte balance in body tissues during heavy exercise. Has a role in recovery after strenuous exercise and stimulates thirst.
Has a role in maintaining cellular integrity and healthy nerve and muscle function. Has a role in muscular contraction, nerve function and relaxation of the heart muscle.
Supporting Equine muscle recovery after hard exertion, racing, cross country, or endurance racing. The three essential amino acids, valine, leucine and isoleucine cannot be manufactured by the horse, yet are required in large amounts in the diet of horses to ensure the optimum recovery and repair of muscles after hard exertion. Branch Chain Amino Acids are required in high amounts any time there is strenuous exercise and stress, including after muscle injury, surgery, hard or prolonged exercise or racing. Muscle tissue consists of about one third of these branch chain amino acids, and muscle damage during exertion, results in the loss of large amounts of these critical nutrients. When you give branch chain amino acids to horses after hard work, you reduce the need to ravage muscle cells and liver proteins. Thus allowing faster recovery after hard work, or racing.
Natural Vitamin E
Supporting the protection of cells from oxidative damage. Supports the maintenance of healthy muscle tissue. Linked to oxygen uptake as well as reducing fatigue.
Highly effective natural antioxidant. Under stress conditions such as racing horses have a higher requirement. Linked to reduced soreness in muscles and increased recovery.
Has a role in the metabolism and maintenance of normal muscle and nerve function. Has a role in optimizing energy use. Has a role in assisting in the maintenance of normal appetite and body weight
Is required for normal general metabolism, growth, and red blood cell production Has a role in maintaining the integrity of skin, mucous membranes and maintains nerve fibre integrity
Involved in general metabolism and red blood cell formation. Has a role in maintaining normal healthy skin and hair condition
Has a role in normal energy metabolism, reproduction, growth and nerve function. Involved in transmission of nerve impulses needed for health of skin and hair Involved in red blood cell production
Has a role in normal general metabolism, nervous system function, normal healthy skin and vision. It is also involved in red blood cell formation
Has a role in general metabolism, nervous and reproductive function and in blood cell production
Involved in general metabolism, formation of white blood cells, red blood cells and haemoglobin
Racing, Eventing, Jumping & Polo:
- Feed 1 full syringe 4 to 8 hours before the race or event
- Depending on the temperature and length of race. Feed ½ to 1 full syringe orally after the race or event
Horses in Transit & hot weather:
- Feed 1 syringe per day 4 -12 hours before departure
- Give 1 tube 4-8 hours prior to the race
- Feed ½ tube (40 ml) after each leg or loop of race
- Give ½ tube after each work out
Note: Free access to fresh drinking water should be available at all times
