Active Ingredients (Per Kg):
Amino-Buff is a supplement combination of amino acids with an high concentration of Buff +. Amino-Buff has been specifically designed to buffer lactic acid using proven scientific methods.
What is Buff +?
Amino-Buff contains 80% Buff + which is classed as a di-peptide. A di-peptide is the combination of only two amino acids. Beta Alanine is composed of the individual amino acids Carnosine and Histidine.
Science behind AMINO-BUFF
Buffering lactic acid in horses competing in competition has always been controversial given the scientifically proven effects of sodium bicarbonate (TCO2) loading. M Dunnett and M C Harris from the Royal Veterinary College, Hatfield, UK, performed a study involving six thoroughbreds witnessed changes in the levels of muscle carnosine which was influenced by the bioavailability of the oral supplementation of Beta Alanine . Muscle carnosine levels individually increased significantly correlating with the different levels of dosage . Increasing the muscle carnosine levels lead to intramuscular buffering capacity . Other studies have been performed since and one the most noticeable benefits of supplementing oral Beta- Alanine is that regardless of how much is supplemented, the TCO2 levels are not elevated.
Another important ingredient in Amino-Buff is Glutamine. Infection and intense exercise has been demonstrated in the past to decrease the concentration of plasma Glutamine levels of horses. Oral supplementation of Glutamine has been shown to benefit the athletically or clinically stressed horse with decreased plasma Glutamine levels .
