Enhanced blood flow to working muscles resulting in reduced fatigue, muscle soreness and muscle damage are just some of benefits of the consumption of concentrated anthocyanin compounds. Anthocyanins are the key polyphenolic compounds of the 100% natural horse supplement Equine Recoup.
Human and animal clinical trials have identified key physiological responses induced by the consumption of concentrated polyphenolic compounds that support the studies undertaken with Equine Recoup highlighting the benefits of the inclusion of concentrated forms of these compounds in a horse’s diet.
Perhaps the most critical response established is the positive effect on the cardiovascular and circulatory system including enhanced blood flow to working muscles resulting in reduced fatigue, muscle soreness and muscle damage.
Not only is a healthy cardiovascular and circulatory system key to performance and recovery in the equine athlete it is equally an intricate part of the health and well being of the horse in the spelling or breeding paddock. This is especially true for horses prone to circulatory diseases such as Laminitis particularly during early spring pasture growth, or bearing excessive weight such as the pregnant broodmare or heavy set horse.
Anthocyanins the major component of Equine Recoup, have been shown to stimulate the nitric oxide pathway a key regulating mechanism of vasodilation. Vasodilation is a physiological response contributing to enhanced blood flow in the circulatory system. Impairment of this pathway is believed to be associated with reduced circulation within the lower limbs of the horse and is thought to be a contributing factor in the development of Laminitis and the progression of the disease.
