Tying up is an ailment that occurs even in fit horses, and usually during or after exercise. Symptoms range from mild hind limb stiffness, pain and sweating to a total reluctance to move, and if left untreated, can result in severe damage to muscle cells.
Introducing LoosenUP, an effective vitamin, mineral and organic chromium supplement to treat and, more importantly, help prevent tying up and muscle damage.
Scientific studies have shown the likely cause of tying up to be raised cortisol levels in the body. This is caused by increased blood glucose levels due to factors such as a high intake of more digestible starch (as found in oats), or even stress. However, the organic chromium in LoosenUP has been shown to reduce cortisol levels, and thereby help prevent tying up.
In addition, LoosenUP’s optimum balance of specific vitamins and minerals further assists in reducing the incidence of tying up, whilst also helping prevent muscle fatigue, as caused by lactic acid build up. These other specific vitamins and minerals include Vitamin E and Selenium (to repair and prevent muscle damage), Magnesium (to help prevent cramping) and Vitamin C (required when stress occurs).
LoosenUP is ideally designed to beat wear and tear before it ties your horse down.
Moreover, LoosenUP contains a potent, stable, high purity grade of Vitamin E, which has been shown in trials to increase stamina and competitive performance in horses.
Other tips to help prevent tying up include reducing or eliminating oats, supplying adequate electrolytes (eg. KelatoLYTE), increasing fibre and fat sources in the diet, working horses every day, providing adequate warm up and cool down, trying to keep fillies/mares out of season, and resting horses with high muscle enzymes to allow repair of muscle cells. So, keep your horse from tying up – and help it to finish stronger – with LoosenUP.
For horses add 30g/day and for ponies add 20g/day, of LoosenUP to the feed.
Split the dose between feeds and mix in well.
