*MITACHONDRAL contains L-Carnitine plus endorphin precursors.
*Use MITACHONDRAL as a pre-event treatment after regular supplementation with L-CARNITINE twice weekly.
*MITACHONDRAL reduces the perception of pain, and delays lactic acid accumulation and muscle fatigue.
MITACHONDRAL is a combination of amino acids to enhance muscle
endurance and reduce pain perception.
MITACHONDRAL supplies the amino acid L-CARNITINE in the same
manner as L-CARNITINE injection and paste, but has the added amino
acids Phenylalanine and Isoleucine. Phenylalanine is an essential amino
acid which inhibits the breakdown of opiate-like substances in the
brain called encephalins. Reduced breakdown of encephalins results in
increased levels of endorphins in the brain.
Endorphins are released in response to pain, and act as natural pain
killers to enable the body to cope with pain. Isoleucine is also involved
in the production of endorphins. An increase in brain endorphin levels
can assist performance by reducing pain associated with muscle fatigue
L-Carnitine is essential for normal heart and skeletal muscle function.
During hard exercise there is extensive loss of L-Carnitine, and this often
cannot be replaced adequately from the diet alone.
High levels of L-Carnitine are necessary, because L-Carnitine plays an
essential role in muscle metabolism during exercise by forming
the transport system which moves fatty acids into muscle cells for
conversion into energy. L-Carnitine also inhibits the buildup of lactic
acid in muscles, which helps delay fatigue in hard working muscles.
Fatigue causes pain in muscles.
The level of L-Carnitine in muscles plays a major role in determining
exercise capacity of muscle. L-Carnitine supplementation improves both
sprint and endurance performance.
It increases endurance, as fat is the major energy source for endurance
work. During sprinting L-Carnitine buffers lactic acid and delays fatigue.
L-Carnitine supplementation increases maximum work output, and
is of value especially in horses which are prone to fatigue & Tying Up.
The added amino acids reduce the perception of pain which may follow
muscle fatigue and Tying Up.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Horses. MITACHONDRAL is used most cost effectively at a dose rate of
15 – 25 mL by intramuscular injection in the 4 – 6 hours pre-event, as the
added amino acids are not required regularly during training. Give one
dose the day prior, and 4 – 6 hours before hard exercise for best effect.
Supplement with L-CARNITINE regularly 2 – 3 times weekly during
training & racing. This may most appropriately be done using
Dogs. 2 – 5 mL
AMP-5, TRIPART and COPHOS B have all been regularly combined with
Meat Withholding Period (Horses): Nil
Not recommended for use with TYROPOWER paste, as phenylalanine
in MITACHONDRAL will inhibit the uptake of the tyrosine from
