Highly concentrated vitamin E, Lysine and selenium optimize the muscle metabolism.
EQUIPUR - top E meets the increased demand of vitamin E, selenium and lysine for sport and high-performance horses.
This effectively safeguards the sensitive muscle fibres against destruction by harmful substances.
The muscle metabolism thus optimizes its physical capacity as willingness to perform, whilst the horse‘s condition and rideability markedly improves.
Instructions for proper use
Horses (500 kg): 30 g per day
Young horses and ponies: 15 g per day given with the feed.
During stringent, physical exercise, a double ration may be given.
Due to the increased content of selenium daily ration should not be more than quadrupled.
For maximum effectiveness, this product should be applied for a period of at least three weeks.
Feeding for a longer period or the whole year round does not pose any problems and will be beneficial.

General findings of nutritional science
In all sport- and high-performance horses, the locomotor-system - particularly the musculature - is subject to extremely high strain. Here the sensitive muscle fibres need to be protected from harm by injurious substances and have to be sufficiently supplied with oxygen and nutrients. The body can fulfil these tasks only if vitamin E, selenium and lysine are regularly supplied in high dosage.
Vitamin E belongs to the fat-soluble vitamins and needs to be supplied via the feed. It is effective primarily as an antioxidant in the area of the cell membranes. It protects these membranes from being destroyed by aggressive harmful substances. In addition, vitamin E improves the oxygen supply and conversion in the musculature and therefore considerably increases the performance capacity of the muscle fibres. Vitamin E deficiency can lead to tension and stiffness, particularly in the back muscles, to inflammation and degenerative disorders of muscle fibres, and to irreversible locomotive disorders and lameness. These functional and performance weaknesses also relate to heart musculature and can even result in sudden cardiac death.
Selenium together with vitamin E, protects the cell membranes from harmful oxygen compounds (free radicals) and is indispensable for the function and structure of heart and skeletal muscles.
Lysine is an essential amino acid and plays an important role in muscle metabolism. By the stimulation of creatine synthesis (energy carrier), the energy metabolism of the musculature is considerably improved.
