Equimins L-Carnitine for Horses

  • Liquid » 1 litre Bottle £24.99

Description

Equimins L-Carnitine improves performance & endurance and supports muscle fatigue. L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring nutrient found in animals and plants. Horses gain L-Carnitine through their diet or through the synthesis of amino acids. However, horses will not usually be able to replace the extensive losses of L-Carnitine which occur in heavy or fast work.

L-Carnitine plays an important role in energy metabolism. It carries Long chain fatty acids into mitochondria (the cell furnace) where they are converted into energy for muscle contraction.

L-Carnitine will help to release more energy during warm up, allows rapid recovery after hard work and prevents exhaustion.

Delivery of aerosols

Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you. Purchasing any of these items in your order will result in a £1.99 charge being added to the total to cover the high cost of the insulated packaging materials. You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

Could you advise whether this product is suitable for helping insulin resistance in equines?

As far as I am aware there are not any studies showing good evidence that L-Carnitine is beneficial to horses with Equine Metabolic Syndrome. That said, it would not do any harm if you wanted to try it.
