Green drench is a carefully blended source of minerals, amino acids, vitamins and co-factors to supply an energy boost without excessive lactic acid build up before exercise and antioxidants to help recovery from exercise.
Amino acid and vitamin supplement for horses. Sodium, potassium and magnesium are essential for cellular
Vitamin C and other antioxidants are vital for soaking up the many free radicals which are produced during exercise and which are toxic to cell membranes. Vitamin C is also an immune stimulant. B-vitamins are essential for energy metabolism and B-vitamins are used at an increased rate during exercise and stress. Replacing B-vitamins immediately helps speed exercise recovery. L-carnitine is essential for breaking down fat to supply energy, actually being the molecule which transfers fat into the mitochondra (the energy
furnace of the body). Fat is a significant energy source for both working muscles and the heart muscle during exercise. Utilizing fat for energy spares muscle glycogen stores and avoids production of lactic acid. Reducing lactic acid production delays the onset of fatigue. L-carnosine works with L-carnitine in assisting muscles to work more efficiently. L-carnosine is also essential for muscle maintenance and growth. L-carnosine is involved in muscle repair after strenuous exercise. Glycine stimulates glucose production by the liver to supply energy during exercise and is a source of D-methyl groups for use in carbohydrate metabolism. Glycine is a precursor for creatine which is involved in recycling ATP for energy supply. Glycine also stimulates release of growth hormone, which has an anabolic effect. Glucose is an immediately available energy source. Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate that is released more slowly for
a prolonged energy source. Triglycerides, a readily available form of fat, provides energy, which spares muscle glycogen and avoids lactic acid production.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Horses: Mix one satchet in 2 to 3 litres of lukewarm water.
Administer when recovery from stress or an energy boost is required.
Administer approximately 12 hours prior to exercise or after exercise or stress.
Alternatively add 50 g to feed twice daily for three days prior to
strenuous exercise. Allow the horse free access to clean, palatable drinking water.
