FOR MUSCLES THAT PERFORM
1. RECOMMENDED USE
Cavalor® LactaTec helps muscles perform optimally at peak times and promotes a speedy recovery, preventing muscle fatigue and keeping your horses supple each day. Cavalor® LactaTec is the most complete supplement, acting in multiple ways to support muscle activity, stimulate muscle recovery and prevent muscle issues such as stiffness, damage and fatigue. Thanks to efficient contributions to numerous metabolic processes, the muscles stay supple and capable of converting energy effectively without side effects. As a result, the horse can sustain peak performance even during periods of intensive training or multi-day events.
2. PRODUCT PROPERTIES – KEY INGREDIENTS
For improved muscle support, essential oils such as Petroselinum sativum and Citrus aurantifolium have been added. The active components of Citrus aurantifolium are strong antioxidants, preventing the formation of harmful free radicals. It also acts as a muscle relaxant. Petroselinum sativum contributes to effective muscle recovery after strenuous exercise. It has a purifying effect, removing toxins from the body more rapidly and allowing for effortless transport of oxygen to the muscles, delaying muscle fatigue.
Muscle cell support for supple, healthy muscle activity Cavalor® LactaTec contains minerals such as sulphur (S), magnesium (Mg) and manganese (Mn) that reduce muscle tension and promote flexibility and stamina of the muscles. These minerals have been formulated for easy absorption by the horse to ensure optimal effectiveness. One example is methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). Although MSM is best known for its beneficial effects on the joints, it also contributes to proper muscle function. MSM relaxes the muscles, acts as an antioxidant and also stimulates blood circulation. In this way, MSM promotes the body’s decomposition and excretion of waste products.
In addition, a complex of B vitamins including vitamin B1, B2 and B12 improves the horse’s carbohydrate metabolism, neural transmission and the oxygen supply to the muscles. Highly potent antioxidant mix for maximum protection Cavalor® LactaTec contains a very powerful combination of antioxidants, providing a proven and extremely strong defence against free radicals at relatively low ingredient dosages. Besides vitamin E and selenium, the standard antioxidants present in most muscle supplements found on the market, Cavalor® LactaTec also contains vitamin C, beta-carotene and bioflavonoids. In addition, Cavalor® LactaTec also contains whey proteins, precursor to glutathione, which is known to be one of the most powerful antioxidants at a cellular level, but is poorly absorbed through the feed. This combination of ingredients greatly increases the production of glutathione in the body and triggers multiple processes for both intracellular and extracellular protection of the muscle cells.
Efficient muscle repair prevents acidification and muscle damage Cavalor® LactaTec contains betaine, precursor to dimethylglycine, which primarily ensures efficient oxygen transport to the muscles, reducing lactate production and storage. Zinc, included in a chelated form, accelerates lactate breakdown, while sodium bicarbonate and sodium tripolyphosphate act as buffers, contributing further to effective muscle recovery. By neutralising lactate and restoring the acid-base balance, it helps prevent muscle acidification and stiffness.
The whey proteins in Cavalor® LactaTec not only prevent muscle damage by neutralising free radicals, they also supply proteins with an ideal amino acid profile, supporting rapid and effective regeneration of damaged muscle cells. Furthermore, the essential amino acids lysine and methionine included in Cavalor® LactaTec function as building blocks for the proteins from which the muscle cells are constructed.
3. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Mix 30 g with the feed per day. In case of severe acidification, we recommend a course of 4 weeks, followed by 2 days before, during and 1 day after competition or heavy exertion. 1 measuring scoop = 15 g. Maximum 45 g per horse per day.
2kg package for 66 days.
Cavalor® LactaTec is also available in paste form as Cavalor® LactaTec Paste. The paste is rapidly absorbed and handy for occasional use such as for competitions or more intensive training. In these cases, give 1/2 syringe the night before and 1/2 syringe on the morning of the event. An additional dose of LactaTec Paste immediately following the exercise will significantly enhance recovery.
When the intensity of the workload changes, another supplement within our range may fit your horse’s needs better. Cavalor® Muscle Fit is very similar to Cavalor® LactaTec but doesn’t contain the essential oils. It provides overall care for muscles to improve their activity and prevent stiffness and other muscle problems. Cavalor® Muscle Fit is the ideal product before and during regular competitions or for horses that suffer easily from sensitive muscles. Cavalor® Muscle Fit helps to bring your horse supple to the start of the next competition. When there is no high load on the muscles and you just want to offer your horse’s muscles some extra support, Cavalor® Muscle Motion may be more suitable. It keeps the muscles healthy and provides protection against the harmful effects of lactic acid and free radicals.
