Supporting Competition Animals

Staying Power Tonic: To support muscle function and speed up recovery after exercise. 1 Litre and 500mls available 10% Off for 2 weeks only

Now that the hunting and national hunt season is upon us many of our horses are needing a bit of extra support to ensure that their stamina is at peak levels (feel free to try it yourself too!)

One factor that can seriously affect this is the ability of the muscles to recover during and after exercise. Staying Power (can also be used for dogs) has:

  • Unique formulation to support muscle function to aid endurance and stamina and speed recovery after exercise
  • Suitable for use in competition horses & dogs
  • Backed up by scientific study

Equine Herbals’ Staying Power is formulated to support the horse’s muscle function and speed up recovery after exercise.

In supplying the highest liquid concentration of Schisandra, Staying Power helps fight fatigue and is of benefit to horses in hard work, the veteran, and those with a history of poor muscle function or muscle damage.

Principally, Schisandra supports liver function, therefore increasing the horse’s ability to remove toxins, such as lactic acid, from the body and thus enhances exercise tolerance.

In a study, Schisandra has been shown to increase stamina and reduce fatigue in racehorses and show-jumping horses.

In both cases, the horses that received Schisandra had lower heart rates and respiratory frequencies, increased plasma glucose and decreased lactate levels suggesting that Schisandra improved lactate clearance by the liver and reduced the amount of lactic acid build up in the first instance.

Understanding the benefit that Staying Power can be to horses competing in all disciplines, the formulation does not contain any ingredients currently recognised to contravene the Jockey Club, FEI or BSJA rules regarding prohibited substances.

Typically, 5-20ml of Staying Power will be introduced into a horse’s morning and evening feeds for a couple of days before a competition, during the competition and for a couple of days after the competition but under normal circumstances should be safe to use for several weeks if necessary. If your horse is known to suffer from muscle fatigue or ‘tying-up’ then we would recommend keeping your horse on Staying power.
