Description: Competitive is the paste syringe, containing branched-chain amino acids, L-carnitine, L-lysine and vitamin E. Competitive counteracts the onset of lactic acid in muscles, provides a pre-competition energy boost and has been especially conceived to better endure competition efforts and prevent the negative effects of lactic acid accumulation.
When to use Competitive: Competitive is especially conceived to support horses during competitions by increasing their available energy, agility, speed and by reducing lactic acid’s negative effects. The energizing effect of Competitive’s branched-chain amino acids is slower than Maltoenergy's maltodextrins’, but lasts longer.
Properties of its constituents: Branched-chain amino acids (valine, leucine and isoleucine) have a medium-long term energizing effect that is, therefore, particularly useful in long competitions, such as endurance and eventing ones (3). L-carnitine is involved in the energy production process: it is in charge of the transportation of fatty acids into mitochondria, thus speeding up their transformation. Carnitine, also called glycogen loader, is largely used in horses' competition training programs, especially in the United States (16). Thanks to its antioxidant action, vitamin E reduces muscular stiffness and pain caused by acidosis (6).
Use and dosage: Administer a whole Competitive syringe three hours before a competition.
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.
