More stamina-more muscle-less lactic acid.

Equine Athlete Chromium – Plus contains organic chromium, amino acids important to muscle performance and repair and Vitamin B6.  Organic Chromium is the natural alternative to anabolic steroids, improving performance without negative side effects.
Human Athletes have known about the role of Chromium as an essential nutrient for years.  However, it is only since 1992 that equine researchers have clearly defined Chromium’s role in improving performance. 
Kentucky researchers have shown that horses fed 5mg of organic Chromium per day had significantly lower blood lactate and blood cortisol levels after intense exercise.
Lactic Acid is a by-product of energy metabolism. During intense exercise, it is accumulated in muscles and causes fatigue. Chromium has been shown to slow the buildup of lactic acid in the blood during strenuous exercise and delay the onset of fatigue. Thus increasing the amount of time an individual horse could sustain a maximal effort during intense exercise, racing or competition.

Cortisol is commonly termed the “stress hormone”.  Levels increase during stressful periods.  Increased cortisol levels lead to a reduction in insulin levels.  This results in reduced energy utilization and protein synthesis, important factors in the athletic horse. Chromium enhances the effect of insulin and improves the uptake of glucose and amino acids into the muscle cells.

Supplementation with organic Chromium has also been shown to increase stress resistance and improve a horse’s immunity, providing resistance to bacterial and viral diseases. Feeding organic Chromium to horses that are susceptible to muscle tye-up reduces the incidence of this condition.

Human studies have shown how daily supplementation with Chromium increases muscle gain and reduces body fat when combined with a physical training programme.  This anabolic effect has also been demonstrated in meat producing animals.
