TRANQUIL Paste is a blend of amino acids, vitamins and minerals which combine to produce a powerful natural calming effect. TRANQUIL is a natural alternative to chemical calming agents. TRANQUIL Paste is a unique formulation of all essential nutrients and cofactors necessary to calm nervous or excitable horses in situations where athletic performance may be reduced because of increased agitation and nervousness. This includes situations such as traveling, strange or unfamiliar racetracks or competition venues, unusual crowds and noise, etc.
How Does It Work?
TRANQUIL Paste contains the amino acid L-Tryptophan, plus all of its essential co-factors. Tryptophan is converted in the body to Serotonin, a major neurotransmitter (a chemical involved in transferring messages within the brain). High Serotonin levels result in a feeling of satiety, and help to induce feelings of relaxation and calmness. Tryptophan is known for its ability to calm nervous or excitable animals, so that they do not waste energy and electrolytes.
TRANQUIL Paste contains a number of additional co-factors to improve energy supply during exercise, and thus exercise performance.
Potassium & Magnesium aspartates improve endurance and delay muscle fatigue and cramping.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1) is intimately involved in using carbohydrates for energy. Riboflavin (Vit B2) helps the mitachondria in cells actually produce energy for muscle contraction.
Nicotinamide (Vit B3) is involved in increasing the availability of glycogen as a source of energy, and the breakdown of fatty acids.
Pyridoxine (Vit B6) increases the ability of red blood cells to offload oxygen into muscle tissue for energy production, and is also involved in the breakdown of muscle glycogen for fuel.
Folic acid is vital to muscle repair, and Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant to reduce muscle damage during hard exercise. These effects combine to improve the mental state of nervous or excitable horses, and thus improve exercise performance.
