Muscles managed- supplements to help the horse’s muscles.

Keeping muscles healthy and working correctly is very important to horse health, particularly the health and well being of the performance horse.

People feed muscle supplements for a number of reasons- to help promote performance and good health, to help existing issues, for stamina and for lots of other reasons too. We sell a number of muscle supplements, to help address all these situations:

Dee-Tye & Drink 1 ltr 382 white bgDee-Tye & Drink is a liquid supplement that helps to support muscle function by encouraging horses to drink at the same time as supplying the horse with a number of important ingredients for muscle health. The liquid contains natural anti-oxidants, trace elements, minerals, body salts, anti-inflammatories, D-alpha Tocopherol, selenium and citric acid in a cherry flavoured base liquid to ensure palatability.

Muscle Toner helps to promote healthy muscle development in horses and can also help to increase stamina, lean muscle mass and overall appearance. It contains Gamma Oryzanol, which is a natural extract from Rice Bran Oil, and is one of a group of sterols that form part of the structure of muscle building hormones. In addition, this liquid contains creatine, an amino acid that stores energy and aids muscle recovery.

Creatine, as mentioned above, is a natural amino acid that helps to build lean muscle, stores energy and can also be used as a buffer against the build up of lactic acid. We sell Creatine as a stand alone supplement and, as per Muscle Toner, we also include it in other supplements.

L-Carnitine Paste is an oral syringe that helps to improve performance and endurance at the same time as relieving muscle fatigue by preventing the build up of lactic acid.

We also sell L-Carnitine as a liquid supplement that works in the same way.

The vitamin E element helps muscular health and integrity with vitamin C and selenium working to help block the formation of free radicals as well as being powerful antioxidants. Ginseng helps to aid vitality with lysine supporting optimum growth and performance.

DMG or Dimethyl Glycine Pure is also known as vitamin B15 or pangamic acid. It can be fed to horses in hard work as it helps to increase oxygen uptake for quicker recovery post strenuous exercise. It also works to boost energy levels, maintain acid balance in the muscles and reduce muscle fatigue.
