Equistro Equiliser 500g

When horses with reduced reserves of certain nutrients are subjected to considerable physical strain and due to increased nutrient expenditure and sweating experience high losses. The animals show "stressed" reactions, are restless, highly nervous, perform poorly and less willingly. The vitamins B1 and B2 and niacin play a role in supporting the nervous system in times of increased stress, along with the "anti-stress" mineral magnesium. In certain cases, a sufficient supply of L-tryptophane can also help. 

Vitamin B1 is important for normal nerve tissue and heart muscle function. Especially with high-energy nutritional regimes, the supply required should be ensured by supplementation. A 500 kg horse requires 25-60 mg of vitamin B1 every day, depending on stress load! Vitamin B6 plays a key role as a coenzyme in protein metabolism. 

Niacin (nicotinic acid, nicotamide) plays an important role in the metabolism of each cell. The daily requirement in horses, depending on age and performance level, is between 10 and 25 mg niacin / 100 kg of body weight. Magnesium is known as an important neural factor. Under extreme performance pressure and consequently increased magnesium requirement, the reserves are quickly released and also immediately used up. Increased requirements must be met with rapidly bio-available magnesium, or the stress situation will exacerbate. 

L-tryptophane (Indolalanine) Tryptophane is an essential, aromatic amino acid required for the synthesis of niacin (see above) from time to time. Niacin serves as a pre-stage for various coenzymes. 60 mg of tryptophane are used to produce 1 mg of niacin. 

Another tryptophane breakdown process results in the production of the biogenic amine serotonine. Serotonine acts as a so-called neurotransmitter in the transmission of stimuli at the synapses of the CNS and peripheral nerves. Depending on the amount released in response to stimuli, serotonin increases or reduces the circulation and metabolism in the lungs, kidneys and skeletal muscles and controls the stimulus conduction to the heart and the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, bronchi and uterus. In humans, serotonin controls appetite, sexual and aggression-related behaviour, mood and sleep-wake rhythms. 

EQUISTRO EQUILISER contains the above-mentioned nutrients, selected, in a completely utilisable form (L-tryptophane) and with an optimum in bio-availability (magnesium salt of organic fumaric acid). 

Presentation: Powder 500g (25 days supply).

Nutritional value: EQUILISER is a dietetic feeding stuff designed to reduce stress reactions in horses, particularly those showing signs of excitation. Equiliser contains a readily assimilated organic magnesium, L-Tryptophan, and key B complex vitamins.

Usage: EQUILISER is an important combination of L-Tryptophan, vitamins B1 and B6, niacin and organic magnesium in a formulation designed to meet the nervous system requirements during important periods of stress. Equiliser is rich in L-Tryptophan, destined to maintain the balance of the nervous system during periods of stress or to help return a “hot headed” horse to a handlable state.

Composition: Glucose, Lactose, Magnesium fumarate 13.5%. Highly digestible ingredients: Glucose, Lactose.

Additives /kg: Amino acids and salts: L-Tryptophan (3.4.1.) 100 000 mg. Vitamins and pro-vitamins: Vitamin B1 (Thiamin mononitrate) 7 500 mg, Vitamin PP (Niacin) 5 000 mg, Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine hydrochloride- 3a831) 3 300 mg.

Analytical constituents: Crude ash 10.5%, Crude protein 9%, Moisture 9%, Ash insoluble in HCl 6.9%, Magnesium 1.3%, Sodium 1%, Crude fibre 0.4%, Crude fat 0.3%.
