A comprehensive blend of omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, macro and trace minerals, vitamins and antioxidants to help protect cells and tissues from free radicals formed during exercise. Omega-3 fatty acids serve as a cool-burning fuel for horses who cannot mobilize adequate amounts of glucose from stored glycogen in order to meet their cellular energy needs during exercise. While producing less heat, the metabolism of omega-3 fatty acids also allows the body to utilize less water, keeping the equine athlete more hydrated during activity. Sparing muscle glycogen not only delays the onset of fatigue, this minimizes the amount of lactate formed during exercise and improves the cell’s ability to remove calcium thereby promoting the muscle’s ability to relax.
