Performance Enhancers For Horse Racing

BIO-EQUINE: Daily supplement with 28 vitamins and mineral, 15 strains of probiotics, biotin, selenium,
diatomaceous earth (as a natural cleanse and worm prevention). No filler, No flavor, No ash, No additive.
The most economical and all round daily supplement. This would be the choice if you do not want any joint
supplement or immunity booster in the daily program.

PERFORMANCE ONE (by PureForm) Daily supplement
This would be the choice if you want to put your horse on a regular regime of joint and immunity remedies. This preparation contains vitamins, minerals, joint supplements and immunity boosters.

RATION PLUS: A probiotic/prebiotic preparation without the inclusion of live organisms. This preparation
encourages the proliferation and establishment of the animal’s own native beneficial organisms, instead of importing foreign ones. This way the animal does not have to adapt to the immigration of foreigners.

It is proven to be effective for putting on muscles on skinny horses and hard keepers, preventing recurrent colic and
other gastro-intestinal problems, preventing stress ulcers, and as a result of better absorption, better organs including better hooves and fur. Must be put on feed. Must not be given directly in mouth.

For BUILDING MUSCLES:

ANABOLIC AGENTS:
All anabolic steroids are on strict prescription and they all test in competitions. We do not ship abroad.
There are non-steroidal anabolic agents that will not test. They are less effective than the drugs but will work
with long term use.

RATION PLUS: Put on muscles, not fats on animals, through normalization of the bowel environment,
improving absorption of amino acids, peptides, proteins, and other essential nutrients.

BODY BUILDER:
Natural anabolic agent called gamma-oryzanol which is an extract from seed oils.

FOR ENERGY

ATP is the substance needed to convert carbohydrates and proteins to energy. If a horse feeds and absorbs well it
will have the substrate (the fuel for burning), but it would also need the catalyst ATP. ATP comes in injections
(ATP Injeel Forte) as well as in homeopathic liquid form (ATP 30X). The injection is used as a pre-race boost.

The homeopathic liquid is used whenever injections are not feasible, and also for daily training. The injection
comes in 10 ampoules per box. Each dose (intramuscular injection) is 2 to 3 ampoules in one syringe/needle. If
the race is in the evening, you give one dose in the morning and another dose as close to the race as feasible. You
have to play with it before you find out what schedule is best for that particular horse.

The injection is very costly, unavailable most of the time because of very limited supply, and most people find it
too abrupt and dramatic in action. The action of the ATP 30X oral liquid is much more predictable and mellow.
This is used every time the horse gets into training or racing. Directions will be given upon sale of a product.
VitaMaster Injection (New name for Hemo-15 Injection): This is an iron and vitamin preparation that booster
blood formation. When the horse is not anaemic, the horse runs faster. Usually given one dose of 10 ml every
week and also given as a pre-race.
New Cells Injection: Liver extract and B Vitamins. Similar in action to VitaMaster except the iron content is
from natural liver extract.

Caco Iron Copper Injection: Contains elemental Iron and Copper that are essential for making blood. Usually
used in conjunction with VitaMaster or New Cells to booster the animal’s blood making efficiency.
Visorb-PS: We compound this palatable daily supplement. This has a similar formula as the time honoured
Visorbin which has been discontinued for 10 years. It contains the most orally absorbed forms of iron and B

vitamins that are essential for making haemoglobin and red blood cells. It surpasses by far the commonly
available commercial and proprietary preparations like Red Cell, Red Glow, etc.
Megablud: A daily supplement in powder form packed in daily pouches. Made originally by Sterivet now
bought out by Vetoquinol. Vitamins, iron and mineral necessary for making blood.

FOR ENDURANCE

Endura Powder: An electrolyte mix designed for athletes. Used in people, dogs, and horses. The electrolytes
are chelated electrolytes so they get absorbed faster and better. As well they stay in the body longer before they
are excreted. The salts are balanced for exercise and they are reinforced with minerals needed to prevent cramps.
In addition, it contains malic acid that fights fatigue (use in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). Made by a naturopathic
company that sells only to medical professional.

One dose 8 hours out, a double dose as close to the race as possible, and another dose after the race.
Endurance Complex Liquid: A homeopathic mixture that contains all the elements for making the horse run
faster and longer: something for lactic acid, for pain, for enhancing the heart pump, to facilitate breathing
efficiency, to enhancing oxygen diffusion, combat excessive heat generation, calm the stomach and the nerves,
relaxes the muscles and prevent tying up, something for perking up the energy, and contains the co-enzymes required for the Kreb Cycle (energy production). Each dose is 3 to 5 ml 8 hours out and repeat as close to the race as possible. A dose after the race would help the horse to recover.

Coenzyme Compositum Liquid: Cell metabolism depends on supply of various co-enzymes which are the
activators of chemical reactions in the cell. This is the key for the generation of energy through combustion of food fuel. This is not only a good pre-race but also a daily reinforcement of liver, heart, and lung functions.
Ubicoenzyme Injection: Same usage as Coenzyme Compositum but in injection form. A box of 10 ampoules is good for 3 to 5 doses for a horse, 10 doses for a dog.

Sportinine Liquid: 5 ml 8 hours out and repeat another dose as close to the race as possible. And give another dose (or a few doses_ after the race to help recovery. (Compared to ATP schedule, you don’t need ATP after the race because you don’t need the horse to have extra energy anymore whereas a lot of lactic acid is being built up during the race and you want to get rid of it asap).
