Amino Max Extra Strength contains three essential Amino Acids to support diet, muscle growth and development, GI tract and healing.
L-LYSINE 20 g - Lysine, an essential amino acid needed for appropriate growth (muscle, blood and hoof building) and bone development helping calcium absorption and maintaining proper nitrogen balance. A deficiency of Lysine most likely will limit the building of muscles. This amino acid aids in the production of antibodies, hormones and enzymes, and helps in collagen formation and tissue repair, as well as stimulation of gastric juices.
DL-METHIONINE 10 g - Methionine, an essential amino acid important for the generation of energy and proten metabolization and is one of the nutritionally required protein building blocks vital for normal metabolism and growth. Methionine is needed for the production of cystine which is necessary to form the healthy "cross links" of collagen that add strength and elasiticity needed for healthy hoof, skin, hair, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Methionine is an important source of dietary sulfur helping to support normal liver health and urinary PH. A deficiency of Methionine impacts muscle function, combined with Lysine to form carnitine, a carrier for muscles to burn fat.
L-THREONINE 5 g - Threonine is an essential amino acid which supports digestion, immune function and muscle systems. It enhances growth and food efficiency, produces adrenalin, is a precursor to thyroid hormones. Threonine is necessary for optimal GI tract health, assists mucin production (an important component of mucous) which contributes to a smooth functioning gut and nutrient absorption, protects the gut against digestive enzymes, pathogens and toxins. This important amino acid helps speed up the healing process due to trauma or injury. A Lysine and Threonine deficiency is likely to limit the body's ability to build muscles.
VITAMIN E NATURAL (50% DL-Alpha Tocopherol Acetate) 1750 IU (5 g) - Vitamin E enhances muscle tone and endurance in working hores and also improves circulation. It improves heart function, enhances the immune system and acts as a potent antioxidant. As an antioxidant, Vitamin E is very important to the diet for free radical scavenging properties. Free radicals are produced in higher quantities during times of stress such as heavy exercise, illness or injury. Beneficial for the prevention of tying up. Antioxidant protection is critical.
