Arginine - An amino acid and potent nitric oxide enhancer that causes vasodilation of both smooth and skeletal muscles. It dilates the vessels of the skeletal muscles, thus providing more blood flow. The vasodilating properties work well in horses that tie up and is extremely useful in treating "Bleeders" because it reduces resistance to the blood flow through the lungs (racehorsemeds.com)
Lysine - is an amino acid which is a building block of protein. Lysine is important to proper metabolism, a healthy nervous system and proper immune function. (Equine.com)
Octacosanol - used to improve exercise performance including strength, stamina, and reaction time.
Vitamin E - Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which plays a role as the #1 antioxidant & immune booster in the body. It also helps to prevent free radical damage to specific fats in the body that are critical for health and is an important vitamin that is required for the proper function of many organs in the body. In addition to being an antioxidant, Vitamin E is a “potent anti-inflammatory when given in high levels,” according to a University of Florida study. Your horse does not make Vitamin E. Daily outside sources of Vitamin E are required to maintain the right blood and tissue levels to help protect cells. Nerve tissue especially requires Vitamin E to function properly. Horses quickly get deficient if they engage in moderate to high amounts of physical activity. (Holistichorse.com DVM Frank K Reilly)
