ASSISTS IN MUSCLE RECOVERY:
Creatine kinase, a key indicator of muscle strain or damage, returned to pre-exercise levels 24 hours after exercise in horses receiving Purina® SuperSport™ pellet. Levels remained significantly elevated in alfalfa-supplemented horses at 24 hours after exercise.
POWERFUL EXERCISE CAPACITY:
During graded exercise testing, horses supplemented with SuperSport™ pellet showed a significant difference in top speed and time to fatigue compared to alfalfa-supplemented horses. SuperSport™ pellet-supplemented horses also optimized their oxygen-utilizing capacity (VO2 max) and anaerobic threshold (VLa4) during the graded exercise test, while alfalfa-supplemented horses did not.
SUPPORTS MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT:
Horses receiving SuperSport™ supplement had greater forearm muscle circumference and less body fat than alfalfa-supplemented horses. A subjective muscle mass scoring system also showed positive differences in the overall muscling of horses fed SuperSport™ supplement.
