Muscle Maintenance for Horses is a high specification muscle support supplement for horses, designed to maintain muscle replenishment, support muscle recovery and minimise muscle loss.

It is a fact that every muscle in your horse’s body undergoes constant tissue depletion and replenishment as a natural process.  Providing all the essential components for maintaining high rates of muscle building and recovery whilst supporting minimal muscle loss are key to having a strong athletic horse.

This is particularly important for performance horses and indeed elderly horses where the demands of work and ageing increase the muscles’ requirements for essential dietary components.

What are the key benefits of feeding Muscle Maintenance?

  • Recommended for performance and elderly horses where the demands of work and the ageing process increase the muscles’ requirements for essential dietary components.

  • Contains essential:

    • Amino acids for building lean muscle. 

    • Antioxidants for mopping up free radicals that can damage muscle tissue.

    • Vitamins for maintaining a healthy blood supply.

    • Connective components for optimising muscular structure.

    • Digestible glucose for minimising muscle fatigue.

    • Omega 3 fatty acids for moderating the breakdown of muscle tissue.

  • Contains the Oatinol™ Delivery System to maintain high rates of nutrient absorption.

  • Wheat gluten free.

  • A 100% Non GM, soya free formulation.

​The Unique Oatinol Delivery System

 KB  - For more information see Knowledge Base article: 'The Oatinol Delivery System'

 

Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies four active nutraceuticals to:

 

  • Maintain gut cell integrity.

  • Maintain the lining of the gut.

  • Support the immune system.

  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

 

Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E.  They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.

Phospholipids

Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.
