Equine Recoup
"After two knee operations and adjusting to arthritis my activity had reduced significantly. The Mobicosa Gel gives me quick relief, and the Mobicosa capsules have enabled me to return to my hikes of 12kms with very little pain or inflammation."
"We recently 'inherited' an old arthritic, deaf and partially blind abandoned dog. We tried him on Technyflex Canine and the transformation is totally amazing! He is now healthy, bright-eyed and bushy tailed!"
"The Blackcurrant Powder seems to have worked wonders on our blood pressure and blood sugars levels- they are dropping back to normal and our energy levels are great!"
"My horse is completely full of the joys of spring (even though it is winter) and going great guns with the competitive trail riding. I've never had such low heart rates or such quick recovery!"
"I started George on Technyflex when I got home as he was lame and he came sound straight away. Rode him on Wednesday and he felt great."
"My elderly cat was slowing down and no longer jumping up on the bed. Technyflex Feline totally changed my cat around- he is bouncing around just like he used to."
"My horse was rearing and bucking and Trish picked up that she had an ill fitting saddle, sore shoulders and back. I feel totally relieved to know exactly what the issues are with my horse."
"Thermal imaging is the way to go as you can instantly see any problem areas without it being a guessing game. Pretty amazing!"

Recovery from Muscle Injury and Fatique in Horses - Equine Recoup

What is Equine Recoup?

Equine RecoupEquine Recoup™ is specifically formulated to alleviate oxidative stress and support a rapid recovery from muscle injury and fatigue incurred during training and competition by the equine athlete.

Equine Recoup™ is a 100% natural product containing a specific blend of plant-derived flavonoids. This unique blend has been developed from a new proprietary technology (patent pending) that delivers the flavonoids in a potent bioactive yet highly palatable and digestive form.

Functionally these flavonoids work to support the cardiovascular system and aid blood supply to working muscles essential in clearing metabolic waste products associated with fatigue and aiding the utilisation of lactate as a direct energy source for muscle recovery.

Equine Recoup™ has been formulated from plant varieties unique to New Zealand. These varieties are grown in the pristine air of New Zealand’s South Island. The exceptionally high level of UV light intensity triggers the plants to produce the richest source of these special flavonoids in the world.

Equine Recoup™ contains no prohibited substances and can be used on all race and eventing horses.

How does Equine Recoup work?

Equine Recoup™ – Essential for Performance

Horse performance is influenced by a number of interlinked factors. Simplistically these can be grouped into genetics, diet, and event specific conditioning and training. Training is essential to teach the appropriate behaviour and skill set requirements for a specific discipline – whether it is racing on the track, competing on the polo field, or performing in the show jumping or dressage arena.

Conditioning involves repetitive exercise, stressing and straining malleable physiological systems, which on recovery increase the horse’s capacity to perform physical work and compete at a higher level. Key to a successful conditioning program and essential to performance gain by the equine athlete is recovery.

Equine Recoup has been specifically formulated to support recovery.

Phases of Recovery

Recovery can be thought of in two phases:

Phase I – the cool down period; bringing about a return to a physiological homeostasis following exercise exertion including a return to a resting heart rate, a shift in priority cardiac output from the skeletal muscles (down from as high as 90% to 10%) to the kidneys and gastrointestinal system, and the removal of potentially toxic metabolic by products accumulated during exercise.

Phase II – the rebuild period; the stimuli of the conditioning work sparks a cascade of physiological responses that drive metabolic and morphological adaptation within muscle systems which translate to gains in stamina, strength and speed as targeted in the conditioning work. Focusing on both phases of recovery, Equine Recoup™ was developed as a proprietary blend of natural plant derived polyphenolic compounds to support the endogenous systems of recovery in the equine athlete.

Polyphenolics have been reported to:

Equine Recoup™ helps aid the cool down phase by:

The rebuild phase is supported by Equine Recoup™ by:

As well as a benefit to recovery during conditioning and training, the same benefits are derived from Equine Recoup™ in recovery from the stress and fatigue experienced during competition.

Equine Recoup™ in Competition

Equine Recoup™ has been tested under gruelling conditions of a 160km endurance event. Specifically investigated was the ability of Equine Recoup, as part of a daily diet, to support; heart rate recovery at various resting points during the event, reduce post event lactic acid accumulation, and limit muscle damage while supporting muscle recovery. Blood plasma accumulation of the skeletal muscle proteins creatine kinase and aspartate amino transferase were used as indicators of muscle damage.

The results clearly show the benefits of Equine Recoup™

When compared with control horses (no dietary added Equine Recoup™) it was found that Equine Recoup™ supported heart rate recovery throughout the event particularly at the crucial race finish reducing heart rate recovery to resting rate by up to 5 minutes.

Lactic acid accumulation was found to be approximately 25% lower in the Equine Recoup™ supplemented horses during the important cool down phase following competition suggesting efficient clearance of anaerobically generated by products and promotion of aerobic metabolism.

In terms of muscle damage Equine Recoup™ has shown to reduce the amount of creatine kinase and aspartate amino transferase released into the blood stream indicating not only a reduced level of exercise induced muscle cell damage or permeability, but retention of these enzymes within muscle cells where they function as key elements in metabolic recovery through the production of metabolic fuels.
