B-BOOSTB-BOOST paste contains B group vitamins are essential for the conversion of chemical energy that occurs within the muscle fibres. Under grazing conditions, a horse’s daily requirement of B vitamins is produced by the micro-organisms in its large intestine. Horses in training benefit from B vitamin supplementation for several reasons;
(1) The production of ATP increases with exercise, therefore, so does the vitamin B requirement.
(2) Digestion of high grain diets leads to a fall in the pH of the large intestine which in turn alters the micro flora population. The result is a net decrease in B vitamin production.
(3) Studies have shown that supplementing Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) in the diet, has the effect of reducing post exercise lactic acid levels.
B BOOST paste contains high levels of all the essential B group vitamins in one single oral dose syringe. It also contains Betaine, which is converted to dimethylglycine in the liver. DMG reduces lactic acid build up during strenuous exercise. B BOOST should be administered 12 to 24 hours prior to competition or on a regular basis if poor appetite is a problem. B BOOST contains no prohibited substances so is safe to use prior to competition.
