WHAT IS FUEL -ATP
(Adenosine Tri-Phosphate) is utilized in the Kreb’s Cycle – which physiologically is one of the key providers of energy to muscle and other cells, especially during strenuous endurance work. In the process of phosphorilization, a phosphate molecule is given up thereby providing energy in completion of the Kreb’s Cycle.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
ATP is the essential chemical for muscle contraction, releasing energy when it is broken down to ADP. The aspartates improve endurance by decreasing blood lactate and ammonia, thus delaying fatigue.
Aerobic metabolism (high oxygen/slow twitch) is a slower producer of ATP and is associated with endurance and longer riding time.
The significance of each of these systems to energy production is important, that both systems operate simultaneously but the level of exercise determining the relative contribution of each to overall ATP production. One system doesn’t just switch off and the other takes over. During sustained effort a point is reached when oxygen demand outstrips supply and anaerobic metabolism has to contribute more to overall energy production.
It increases the amount of available molecules this delaying fatigue and allowing quicker replenishment of ATP from “spent” ADP. A horse’s performance is dependent on a number of factors including health, nutrition and environmental temperature. Energy is defined as the capacity to do work. The amount of energy available for muscular work is the most important factor in a horse’s performance. Athletic performance requires the efficient utilization of extreme amounts of energy transformed by metabolic pathways from chemical to kinetic energy for muscle contraction. Fuel provides the racing edge.
ADMINISTRATION AND DOSAGE
Administer 10ml in one area then another 10ml in a different, a total of 20ml maximum by intramuscular (I.M.) injection only, 4-6 hours prior to an event to delay fatigue. You can also therapeutically treat overly fatigued horses, post-race, with 1/2 dosage as well as horses exhibiting shock symptoms due to toxemia.
