QUESTION:

What can I do to enhance my competition horse's vitality and endurance during intense competition periods?


ANSWER:

The vitality and endurance of competition horses are heavily dependent on effective blood circulation and oxygenation. Optimal blood flow plays a central role in a horse's physical health and capacity as it transports essential nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, including the muscles. During intense competition or training periods, the muscles require a continuous supply of oxygen to perform work and efficiently burn energy.

A well-functioning circulation ensures that oxygen and nutrients are delivered quickly and effectively to the muscle tissues where they are needed most. This is crucial not only for maintaining a high performance level during competitions but also for enabling quick recovery afterward. After physical exertion, the muscles need to restore their energy reserves and repair any micro-damage that has occurred. Efficient oxygenation and nutrient delivery accelerate this recovery process and reduce the risk of injuries and fatigue.

Moreover, effective blood circulation helps to remove waste products, such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid, from the muscles. Lactic acid is a by-product of muscle metabolism that can accumulate during intense work and lead to muscle fatigue and pain. By quickly transporting these waste products away, an efficient blood flow helps to maintain muscle function and endurance, as well as improve overall performance.

To support the vitality and endurance of your competition horse during intensive competition periods, Eclipse Biofarmab offers several products that can be very helpful:

Better Blood: This product is formulated to optimize iron absorption from the horse’s daily feed, without adding extra iron. This makes it ideal during training periods. It contains folic acid, vitamin B12, and inulin, which promote the formation of red blood cells and improve iron absorption, allowing the horse to continue training without interruption. Ideal for maintaining optimal oxygenation and nutrient delivery during high physical exertion.

Beetroot: Beetroots are rich in nitrates that convert to nitric oxide, a molecule that dilates blood vessels and improves blood flow and oxygen transport to the muscles. This enhances endurance and muscle performance, making beetroot popular among elite athletes. Beetroot reduces urea levels and protein load, which speeds up recovery. It also contains essential vitamins and minerals, and water-soluble fibers that stabilize blood sugar, which is crucial for energy levels during competitions.

Arnica Gel: An effective massage liniment traditionally used to dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow to muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Arnica Gel is optimal for treating the horse’s larger muscle groups, especially over the back, loin, and buttocks, which can contribute to faster recovery after exertion.
