PHOENIX – June 9, 2014 – Regardless of the type of event, high performance horses require nutrients that are help improve stamina and performance to achieve peak results every ride. Now equestrians can keep their horses performing their best with the introduction of two new Horse Health™ Products: Red Cell® Competition supplement and Red Cell® Recovery paste. Horse Health Products is a trusted equine brand of Central Garden & Pet Company.
Red Cell® Competition supplement allows horses to perform longer* during training and key events by promoting and supporting stamina and peak performance. It contains two antioxidants that scavenge and reduce free radicals, which cause damage to cells and tissues. An overproduction of free radicals results in oxidative stress, causing a reduction in available energy and leads to fatigue. Supported by university research, this daily pre-performance supplement also decreases oxidative stress associated with strenuous exercise.
Red Cell® Recovery paste helps horses recover faster* after competitions, so they can resume their training regimen with the same intensity. It combines an antioxidant with branched chain amino acids and electrolytes to address the needs of the performance horse. Red Cell® Recovery paste, also backed by university research, supplies antioxidants that decrease oxidative stress associated with strenuous exercise. The branched chain amino acids aid in proper muscle function and repair, and maintain and minimize post-exercise muscle breakdown that occurs after intense training/competition. It also contains electrolytes to help replace fluid and minerals lost through sweat from training, performance and summer heat.
“Competitors and trainers who want their performance horses consistently training and competing at their top level will love the results of the new Red Cell® Competition and Recovery products,” said Alyssa Barngrover, brand manager, Horse Health™ Products.” “These two new performance supplements were scientifically formulated to support the horse before, during and after the event.”
Red Cell® Competition supplement is available in a 10.6-ounce jar, for a 30-day supply. Red Cell® Recovery paste is available in a convenient single serving syringe that is easy to use post-exercise without waiting until feeding time.
