Inflammatory Shield®

INFLAMMATORY-SHIELD® Helps protect, support and modulate healthy joints, muscles and inflammatory responses in equine.

Ingredients in this proprietary patent pending formula include:

Patented Quercegen's QU995™:

Quercegen's QU995™ which contains 99.5% or greater purity of Quercetin uses multiple trade secrets in addition to a patented extraction and purification process and is generally accepted as The World's Purest Quercetin commercially available. Only Quercegen has domesticated and grows Uncaria on its farms in Brazil with high concentrations of Quercetin. It is then processed, purified, formulated and packaged in the Company’s own facilities.

Patented CiboStar™ Ribose®:

A mitochondrial energizer that helps enhance recovery and endurance. Ribose is tied to increases in adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production; Increases in ATP stores is believed to support increased performance during short term high-intensity exercise.

Patented HydroQSorb® CoQ10:

This version of the CoQ10 enzyme – the spark for energy - delivers the most bioavailability of any CoQ10 powder in the world. Hydro-Q-Sorb® is an all-natural CoQ10 molecule that is wrapped in another natural molecule, gamma cyclodextrin, which essentially “hugs” the CoQ10 and takes it right into the cells. Human studies have shown that Hydro-Q-Sorb® is six times more bioavailable than regular powdered coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).

Calcium Carbonate

Calcium is a very important mineral for horses. Calcium and phosphorus are the most abundant minerals in the body, making up 70% of the total mineral content. Calcium has several important functions in the body. Most people are familiar with calcium being necessary for strong, healthy bones. In fact, 99% of the calcium in the body is contained in the bones and teeth. A horse which is asked to perform athletically must have optimally strong bones to withstand the rigors of training and hard work, whether it be for racing or other performance. In addition to bone formation/strength, calcium is important for several vital metabolic functions in the body.

Patented Bio-Curcumin® BCM-95:

Research has shown that curcumin’s most important activities in the human body is its ability to inhibit activation of the transcription factor, nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB),4-6 a potent inducer of chronic inflammation. NF-kB is a protein that acts as a sort of switch, turning on inflammation by activating genes involved in the production of inflammatory compounds. This formulation of highly bioavailable turmeric extract helps maintain healthy inflammatory responses.

BosPure® Boswella (10% AKBA):

This highly bioavailable version of this ingredient also helps maintain healthy inflammatory responses, specifically through stimulating lipoxygenases, key enzymes involved in the formation of leukotriens, which are principal mediators of inflammation.

Zinc Oxide

Formulation experts know there are several ways to fortify a premix with zinc, a micromineral that is important for many body processes, including carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. While it would be acceptable for feed manufacturers to use zinc oxide to nudge up zinc levels, equine nutritionists recognize the availability of other, more potent, sources. By way of example, zinc sulfate is a superior source of zinc, as evidenced by multiple research studies that have shown it is absorbed more completely by horses than zinc oxide.

Studies show that, “Specific Nutraceuticals Help Support, and Maintain Healthy Inflammatory Response in Young Racehorses During Training.”

These Nutraceuticals Were Associated with a Significant Reduction in Proinflammatory Expression Before and After Exercise, Which Underscores the Potential to Help Reduce Exercise-Induced Inflammatory Pathologies in Racehorses.
