L-CARNITINE levels in muscles determines the exercise capacity of the muscles. It forms the essential transport system for the use of fats as an energy source
L-CARNITINE may help delay muscle fatigue by reducing lactic acid formation and improve endurance.
L-CARNITINE is also essential for heart function.
Performance horses may recover more efficiently when supplemented with L-CARNITINE.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Injection: 3 mL per 100 kg bodyweight (15 mL per average horse) by intramuscular injection 2 - 3 times weekly. Give final dose 4 - 6 hours before hard or fast work. Preferably use pastes for regular supplementation, and those who prefer injectables may consider the injection pre-event, to achieve high blood levels. (Sole use of paste formulations will not reduce the effect in any way). Veterinarians have reported significant improvement in horses using high doses of 20 - 25 mL twice weekly.
