Nupafeed L-Carnitine Daily Liquid Equine Energy Supplement is used to help build muscle, power, and energy without horses becoming "fizzy". Made with L-Carnitine, a naturally occurring amino acid, this supplement plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat, and is great for horses who tend to tire easily, or horses who need to overcome a fitness plateau. L-Carnitine also influences lactic acid turnover, and can, therefore, be helpful for a horse prone to increase muscle enzyme build-up. Nupafeed ® L-Carnitine Supplement also comes in a concentrate oral syringe for times when increased stamina is needed.
L-Carnitine improves the efficiency of energy turn over by mobilizing fat stores, making glucose readily available in the cells to make energy. During hard work, normal glucose metabolism often does not provide enough energy and other substrates are used. Improving glucose metabolism not only spares these other substrates which are required for muscle growth and repair, but also reduces the number of harmful toxins produced during hard work so less muscle damage occurs.
Animals with a high percentage body fat or that require longer working-in periods: administer 1 syringe 4-6 hours prior to competition. Those with low percentage of body fat and short working-in periods can require up to 10 hours. Note: this substance should not enter the respiratory tract of your horse.
