The function and physical power of a horse's muscles depend on a sufficient supply of certain nutrients to nourish the individual muscle cells.
EQUISTRO EXCELL "E" contains vitamin E, selenium, magnesium and lysine - 4 bioactive and highly bio-available nutrients to optimise muscle function.
Selenium interacts with vitamin E and is a component of glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme that deactivates peroxides. In regions where the soil contains little selenium, fodder alone often cannot ensure an adequate supply. Selenium should be supplemented, but the overall limit of 2 mg selenium / kg of feed dry substance must not be exceeded (see also EQUISTRO SUPER "E").
Magnesium is necessary for the activation of many enzymes in muscle metabolism, and is also involved in protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Adult horses require between 10g and 13g per animal per day, foals between 5g and 10 g. Usually only free-grazing horses can be assumed to get sufficient amounts of magnesium, so supplementation is indicated in winter. In cases of sub-normal intake and utilisation of magnesium, or when bodily reserves are quickly depleted under severe mental and physical stress, horses react with stress symptoms such as exhaustion, poor condition, excitability, nervousness, sweating and loss of appetite. Lysine is the single most important building-block in the muscle synthesis of growing foals, weanlings and horses in training. The maintenance requirement is at least 23g lysine per animal per day. This requirement increases to 50g per animal per day for pregnant and lactating mares, growing horses and working 2-year-olds. Trials have shown that giving foals 40g of lysine per day significantly improves their weight increase and muscle formation - measured in the m. longissimus dorsi - in comparison to animals with lower lysine supplement levels. EQUISTRO EXCELL "E" is thus particularly suited for horses in training and competition. It helps relieve muscle tension, improves rideability and can help increase muscle power and stamina. Other uses for EQUISTRO EXCELL "E" include the initial care of foals, especially those who are sickly.
EQUISTRO EXCELL "E" contains prime-quality nutrients in a highly bio-active and bio-available form to ensure optimum efficacy. The liquid form and high nutrient content ensure ease of use as well as a high level of acceptance by horses, with rapid and complete uptake of the supplement.
