By replacing some of the very starchy feed (grains) with EquiForce Oil, the horse’s muscles can be “trained” to increase their aerobic combustion (with oxygen) during exercise. This decreases the anaerobic combustion (without oxygen) accordingly, thereby reducing the formation of lactic acid in the muscles during exercise. The horse is thereby able to work for a prolonged period without showing fatigue and the muscles will recuperate faster and better resulting in less stiffness and tension. EquiForce Oil is added natural vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, to prevent rancidity of the delicate omega-3 fatty acids in the product but also to supply the horse with the extra vitamin E that he needs when being on an oil rich diet. The product also contains lecithin, a phospholipid that forms a very important building block in the horse’s cells.
