Promotes the Intestine System
Liver and Gall
The liver works as a “filter” in a closed system, (the vascular system). The ”filter” separates undesirable by-products from the blood. The auxiliary system filters poisonous by-products from the metabolic process. The kidneys then handle the water-soluble toxins and the liver generates the gall that enables the decomposition of fat-soluble toxins. Gall is constantly released in the duodenum because the horse lacks a gall bladder. The natural food for horses is not rich in fat; therefore the gall that is produced for a horse is less concentrated compared to the human gall. Therefore, more substances than what are considered natural become collected in the ”filter” (liver).
The large intestine is the end station for most solid waste products and fatty-soluble toxins. If the “detoxification” process doesn’t function properly in the intestines, the blood will absorb the toxins and return them to the liver. The “filter function” of the liver is decreased when the liver becomes “filled up”. Because of this, the toxins are returned back to the blood and redistributed into the body. The body protects the vital organs by letting blood absorb the toxins and deposit them into tissue such as skin, muscles, bursas and fat. The toxins actually cause more pain than they do harm.
The equine hindgut – a “war zone”
The increased use of oil and yeast in equine feeds will also affect the hindgut fermentation negatively. This will create a disturbance of the intestinal flora, which will cause an immune defence reaction; the antibodies situated in the mucous membranes of the digestive tract will react. These antibodies serve as “guards” and react when toxic materials from feed enter the digestive tract. The antibodies will then try to neutralize and, above all, stop the toxins from being absorbed into the blood stream.
Improper feeds create stress on the system that allows impure and toxic substances, and partly undigested feed stuff to enter the blood stream. This will increase the strain on liver and kidneys, which have to eliminate them. The toxins can travel, with the blood, between colon and liver 6-7 times. The extra strain will also irritate the intestine walls and mucous membranes. Colic, diarrhea and other digestive disorders are common symptoms of feed strain. One can say that the hindgut has become a “war zone”. Feed poisoning can be compared to a missile that is able to hit all over the “physical map” – any surface, part and system of the body can be targeted.

Nutrition for more fuel in the “tank”
Out of the horse’s body weight 8% is blood. This means that a horse weighing 1100 pounds has approximately 40 liters of blood in its body. The number of red blood cells may vary a great deal, due to the reserve of red blood cells that the horse stores in the spleen.
This extra supply gives the horse its speed and endurance. The horse utilizes this energy reserve during racing. The red blood cells stored in the spleen get released in to the blood circulation during hard work. In its wild condition horses are flight animals and its survival from potential attacks depended on its ability to run fast.
In much the same way as with a car – when hitting the gas pedal the car uses more fuel.
The transportation system of the organism constitutes the blood circulation system. It ensures that the tissue receive nutrient from oxygen and glucose. The blood flows in a closed valve system, made up of blood vessels. The heart then pumps the blood in a system of vessels. The red blood cells get produced in the bone marrow and their main task is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the cells in the body. Red blood cells have a life span of approximately 120 days.
The day before event: (1 scoop (½ oz (15g)) 2 scoops 3 times/day. 2-4 hours before event: 3 scoops.
Mix the powder with water in a bowl until a stiff paste forms or spread the powder over the dry feed.

Replenishment of the Muscle fibers after Competition
Muscles are one of the most important components, and compose the largest tissue mass, in the horses’ body. There are of course various types of muscles performing but basically they all function in the same way – a period of contraction or shortening of muscle fibers followed by a period of muscle relaxation or lengthening of muscle fibers.
The fuel for the muscle fibers is a combination of glycogen and glucose which is used as fuel under competition. The breaking down of it provides energy; likewise the horses’ muscles must rid themselves of lactic acid for optimal functionality
The replenishment of glycogen into the muscles is highest the first hour after physical activity. But the body’s systems will repair damage to the muscle fibers caused by physical activity for as long as 48 hours after competition.
Protein is an important substance in the building up phase, especially the first 48 hours after maximum exercise.
Injuries in ligaments, joints and muscles will take at least 3-4 weeks for the body to repair in a competition horse. Over exertion or injury generates tissue fluid that might contain “fibrin”. The fibrin is not water-soluble and can coagulate in high concentrations. The coagulated fibrin will then affect the mobility of the muscles.
Feed 2 scoops (1 scoop: ½ oz (15g)) immediately after competition followed by 3 scoops twice a day for 2 more days. Mix the powder with water in a bowl until a stiff paste forms or spread the powder over the dry feed.
