STORM® - The Science of Fatigue

Lactic acid build-up in muscles during any type of fast or strenuous exercise, including jumping, contributes to the build-up of hydrogen irons (H+), which makes muscle more acidic.  Muscle acidosis contributes significantly to muscle fatigue, by interfering with muscle contraction and energy generation in tiring horses.  Tired horses slow down, or can make crucial mistakes during competition.  Muscle carnosine, a dipeptide buffer, offers a major defence against muscle fatigue through better management of muscle acidosis.  Carnosine, which is found naturally in muscle, acts like a biological sponge, complexing with H+ to defend against muscle acidosis and delay fatigue.

 

STORM® - Unique Formulation

STORM® by Racing Blue provides a unique combination of ingredients including ProCarnosine® to boost muscle carnosine content, aiding training and performance by targeting acidosis, calcium regulation and oxidative stress in muscle during intense exercise.

 

STORM® - Scientifically Proven

Scientific studies in humans and horses* show that feeding STORM® will boost the level of carnosine in muscle.  This results in a greater capacity to buffer H+ during exercise.

STORM® - The Benefits

STORM® supports normal muscle function and allows horses to maintain their peak speed and power for longer. STORM® helps deliver effective training and optional performance.  Practically horses should finish their faces more strongly, or in competition they should feel more able to carry out the work being asked for, as well as recovering more quickly.

 

 

STORM® has a proven track record in the UK, Middle East and Hong Kong for racing and other performance horses. And is suitable for all performance horses including those involved in racing, eventing, showjumping, endurance, polo and dressage.


STORM® conforms to the rules of racing and to FEI rules and each batch is tested prior to sale for the absence of specified prohibited substances (see website for details).

Vitamite® Dr Biff's Hoof Supplement®

An aid in the prevention and treatment of hoof disorders:

 

  • Injured or poor quality hooves, thin brittle walls and thin soles
  • Easily bruised heels, poorly formed frogs
  • Horses or ponies with laminitis.
  • Very palatable formulation

 

An aid in the prevention and treatment of hoof disorders such as injured or poor quality hooves, thin brittle walls, thin soles, easily bruised heels, poorly formed frogs or laminitis.

 

The supplement provides all nutrients required to accelerate keratin production.  Whilst keratin production happens naturally in response to injury or insult, it can only occur if all nutrients required are available and consumed daily.

 

It has dramatic effects on the rate of hoof repair and regeneration and unlike many Methionine-containing supplements which deter feeding, this supplement is very palatable.  It is also non-siftable which defeats the horse’s ability to leave a portion of powder in the feed.

 

Dr Biff’s Hoof Supplement contains

Biotin – well recognised as a rate-limiting nutrient for hoof growth and hoof quality. 

Methionine – and Cysteine which can be synthesised from it, are the sulphur containing amino acids which are required more by keratin than any other tissue, often deficient when accelerated growth is required.

Zinc – if supply is marginal, tissue with abnormal demand is the first to suffer.  

Vitamin E – essential to additional keratin production. 

Vitamin A – one of the carotenoids essential to all keratinized tissues, needed mostly by horses not on high quality fresh pasture.

Omega-3 – all membranes, including hoof wall microtubules, and laminae, must have omega-3 to be built with suppleness and strength.

Iodine – iodine- deficient horses often show poor hoof quality
