Vetsense BCAA paste
60mL graduated plastic syringe
A source of the three essential Branch Chain Amino Acids Valine, Leucine and Isoleucine plus cofactors which may assist in normal energy production and protein synthesis in horses.
Branch chain amino acids (BCAA) cannot be synthesized by the body and research studies have shown that they play an important role in muscle recovery after exercise.
Following heavy exercise, branch chain amino acids levels in the bloodstream are reduced to the point where the body needs to breakdown muscle cells and degrade liver protein to supply more branch chain amino acids for the body to use.
When horses consume branch chain amino acid within 30 minutes after strenuous work, the body will use these added BCAA in the bloodstream first. This reduces the need to use muscle cells and liver proteins.
Each 60mL contains
Vitamin B6 600.0mg
In an aniseed flavoured base
To be given in the feed or as directed by a veterinary surgeon.
AFTER HEAVY WORK: 60mL(full syringe) within 30 minutes after exercise
