Description: R-Aminoacid is the complementary feed conceived to increase muscle mass and definition. Its formula is based on branched-chain amino acids (L-valine, L-isoleucine and L-leucine) and essential amino acids (L-lysine, L-threonine and DL-methionine). Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) has been added to improve the absorption of branched-chain amino acids by muscles.

When to use R-Aminoacid: R-Aminoacid is recommended to increase muscle mass in excessively thin horses or in horses in poor body conditions. We suggest using the product as a dietary supplement for adult sporthorses, in order to give them energy without the formation of lactic acid. R-Aminoacid does not upset the horse: it calms it down and prepare it for competitive activities.

Properties of its constituents:
Branched-chain amino acids are contained mainly in animal source foods, while they are scarce in vegetables. Branched-chain amino acids stimulate the production of muscle fibres, increase strength and improve resistance to efforts (3, 14).Branched-chain amino acids are considered inhibitors of lactic acid formation in muscles. Lysine, threonine and methionine are the most important essential amino acids in a horse's diet. Lysine is both a glucogenic and a ketogenic amino acid and can play a role in the formation of D-glucose, glycogen and lipids. Consequently, it is involved in the direct energy generation process from food. From these three important amino acids, the body can produce other substances, which are useful for sporthorses' metabolism (e.g. high levels of lysine trigger the synthesis of growth hormone (GH)) (3). Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, plays a fundamental role not only as a coenzyme involved in amino acid absorption, but also as a regulator of indispensable hormones, such as dopamine and serotonin, regulating well-being and mood (8). Horses supplemented with branched-chain amino acids are peaceful and ready for competitive work.

Use and dosage:

Show jumping, eventing and dressage horses:  Administer 80 g of R-Aminoacid per day, properly mixed with the daily ration.

Arabian and quarter horses: Administer 50 g of R-Aminoacid per day, properly mixed with the daily ration.

Ponies: Administer 40 g of R-Aminoacid per day, properly mixed with the daily ration.

Results will be visible after 15-20 days from the first administration. Minimum 40-day treatment cycles are recommended.


Measuring scoop:

- level full: 20 g

- rounded full: 26 g

This product does not cause any adverse reaction. Nevertheless, since every organism has its own peculiarities, dietary supplements, feeds and complementary feeds should always be introduced in a horse’s diet gradually, in order to evaluate the product’s effects on the horse.
