Vitex 4 Equids

Vitex 4 Equids is an aqueous extract of the herb Vitex agnus castus (also known as Monk’s Pepper or Chasteberry; part of the vervain family of plants. Vitex is a shrub grown widely along the river banks and in the valleys of the Mediterranean and Central Asiatic regions. After flowering in high summer, the plant develops dark brown fruit [similar to peppercorns]. These fruits are dried and are the parts of the plant used in the preparation of Vitex4 Equids.

Vitex4 Equids is based on purified water, with no chemical additives or inclusions and is 100% natural. Vitex4 Equids can therefore be used in competition animals.

Vitex4 Equids is unique among herbal infusions in terms of the quality control procedures used during its preparation. Vitex4 Equids is made in a laboratory licensed under the UK Medicines Acts 1968 and 1971. This ensures an exceptionally high level of quality and conformity; the same quality as is necessary to produce the drugs you are prescribed from your doctor.

Vitex4 Equids can

  • Provide a sense of wellbeing in equids
  • Be fed to older horses particularly those who fail to shed their coats or drink excessively
  • Supplement the diet of stallions and mares during the breeding season.
  • Supplement the diet of aggressive or uncooperative animals

How does Vitex4 Equids work?

A large amount of research on Vitex has been carried out in Germany and according to Dr Rudolf Fritz Weiss, Vitex acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is the “conductor of the hormonal orchestra” governing digestion, metabolic rate, reproduction, behaviour, growth and ageing.

It is known that Vitex can support the hormonal balance in horses.

Muscle Max

Muscle Max is a feed supplement formulated to maximise the efficiency of muscle metabolism. It does this in two ways, by improving lean muscle mass and by reducing the effects of post exercise muscle fatigue.  A large part of the daily energy requirement of the equine athlete is used by the skeletal muscles to power the contractions that give the horse its attributes of speed, endurance and strength.

The energy from feed is stockpiled in the muscles in the form of glycogen. Through a chain of biochemical reactions within the muscle cells, the glycogen is oxidised to release Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) the chemical energy source used to power the muscle cells. The oxidation process requires large amounts of oxygen, hence the need for an efficient blood supply.

The waste products from this energy burning process include water, carbon dioxide, ammonia, lactic acid and free radicals, all of which have the potential to reduce muscular efficiency. Free radicals can cause serious damage to the muscle cell membrane. It is these free radicals, in conjunction with the waste ammonia and lactic acid, that many equine sport scientists believe are responsible for muscle fatigue, post exercise muscle soreness and muscle tye-up.

Antioxidants are substances that have the ability to inactivate the free radicals within the cell. There are many nutritional antioxidants, mostly found in plants.  Muscle-Max is an antioxidant supplement that contains stabilised rice-bran. Rice bran is a rich source of glycerides, free fatty acids, phospholipids and glycolipids. Its principle antioxidants are the tocopherals, tocotrienols and gamma oryzanol, as well as inositol, phytic acid and choline.Vitamin E is one of the Tocopherols found in Muscle-Max, but it is the tocotrienols that are 50 times more potent than Vitamin E, that makes rice branl such a potent antioxidant formulation.

Besides being an antioxidant, gamma oryzanol is a plant sterol, giving it anabolic properties. Studies in which gamma oryzanol supplements were included in diets of both human and equine athletes over a 6-8 week period resulted in improved muscle to fat ratios, along with improved appetite.

Muscle-Max also contains chromium picolinate. Chromium is not an antioxidant, but it does play an important role in increasing muscle energy utilization, while at the same time lowering blood lactic acid levels during exercise. Recent research in the USA has shown that racehorses in full training supplemented daily with 5mgs of organic chromium had 13% lower blood lactate levels after intense exercise than the control horses used in the studies. Studies with human athletes have shown that daily supplementation with organic chromium increases muscle gain and reduces body fat more than physical exercise alone.

In summary Muscle-Max combines the antioxidant and anabolic properties of stabilised rice bran and along with chromium picolinate helps to reduce muscle fatigue and post exercise muscle damage.  It alsto create muscle gain and a reduction in body fat. It is a 100% natural product that can be used right up to and during competition. It is formulated with an apple flavour that horses find palatable.

Keratex Hoof Gel

Keratex Hoof Gel gives hooves total protection from the harmful effects  of water damage. When hooves are exposed to excess moisture – from muddy/boggy grazing, stabling or  climate – they start to deteriorate and soften. This can lead to hoof breakage, cracks and soft frogs, punctured soles,  thrown shoes and abscesses.

Keratex Hoof Gel will guard against water damage. It provides a safe, fully breathable barrier against  incoming moisture and completely protects the hooves from the damaging effects of excess  moisture by stopping excess water from being absorbed. Used before turn out, stabling or in rainy spells, Keratex Hoof Gel is proven to strengthen  hooves and prevent further water damage from occurring. Once applied, water will form droplets on the hooves and simply slide off , much like rain
off a waxed jacket or water off a duck’s back.

Most problems resulting in hooves cracking and losing shoes are caused by the effects of water and ammonia. Keratex Hoof Gel protects the whole hoof capsule by providing a barrier against adverse environmental influences acting on the integrity of hoof horn.

Normal hoof oils and greases offer little protection against environmental damage. Once they come in contact with ammonia from urine, they become water soluble emulsions which are quickly washed off, allowing both water and ammonia to permeate the horn.

To maintain a healthy hoof capsule, Keratex Hoof Gel allows the horn to breathe. This means that air can pass freely through Keratex Hoof Gel in either direction and excess moisture can be expelled from the hoof, but no water or chemicals can enter the hoof from outside, The function is much the same as semi-permeable cloth used for outdoor clothing, which allows moisture out, but prevents rain from getting in.

Horn does not need extra moisture from external sources as the hoof capsule will take care of that naturally from inside. Constant changes in the moisture content of the hoof will result in cracking during the Summer.

Used as a standard hoof treatment throughout the year, Keratex Hoof Gel will maintain the moisture content of the hoof at the same natural level, rain or shine, Summer or Winter, turned out or stabled in. This is the answer to maintaining hooves in a healthy condition throughout the year. Hooves will naturally become stronger, harder and more able to resist the stresses of shoeing and work.

Because of the waterproofing effect, hooves are easier to clean and dry. Keratex Hoof Gel also contains a natural disinfectant to maintain hooves in a healthy condition.

Keratex Hoof Gel will help prevent snowballing if applied regularly to the sole and frog and immediately before going in the snow.

If you are showing or going to an event, all you need to do is apply Keratex Hoof Gel, let it dry, and then buff it with a cloth to have a super natural sheen on the hooves. Keratex Hoof Gel does not attract bedding, grass and dust in the same way as grease and oil type hoof dressings.
