The blood of racing and performance horses is placed under exceptional burden, dealing with elevated levels of wastes, including metabolic by-products that are generated by high energy, high protein and processed feed diets, and by intense training schedules. Additionally, horses are confronted with an elevated rate of immune challenges, as they share space with a large and changing population of horses; placing added burden on the lymphatic system to process and eliminate foreign invaders.
In racing horses, poor quality or overloaded blood can become evident as an inability to reach speed, poor stamina, poor recovery from fast work, and susceptibility to viral and bacterial infection.
Etherlite is made with a blend of traditional, botanical extracts, including echinacea, calendula and dandelion, which have been utilised by traditional Eastern health care systems to assist with improving the size and quality of red blood cells and plasma, and to support the lymphatic system in removing waste and foreign bodies, including underlying or residual viral and bacterial organisms, from the bloodstream. Rosehips and olive leaves provide antioxidants – essential for binding hazardous free-radicals, before they can cause cellular and DNA damage. Calendula flowers provide amino acids and mucilage, for tissue repair and digestive support, and dandelion is used to reduce toxic ‘liver heat’.
Usage & Rates: Etherlite is typically given at a rate of 5ml / 100kg am & pm, mixed in feed.
Competition & Race Day Safe: Etherlite can be safely used through competition and racing, being free from prohibited substances under the FEI Cleansport and Racing Australia codes.
