The blood of racing and performance horses is placed under exceptional burden, being expected to deal 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.
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 illness.
Etherlite is made with a blend of traditional, botanical extracts, including echinacea 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.
The Etherlite Blend Includes:
Echinacea – Traditionally used to improve blood quality, red blood cell count and oxygen carrying capacity, and tone the lymphatic system; Echinacea has been used for a myriad of health conditions throughout history, making it a unique and favoured botanical medicine.
Olive Leaf – Traditionally used as a broad-sectrum antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal agent – olive leaves also possess excellent free-radical scavaging capacity, for better general health and wellness.
Dandelion root – Traditionally used as an aid in liver detoxification and to reduce excess ‘liver heat’. Dandelion root possesses antiinflammatory, antirheumatic and anticancer benefits.
Rosehips – A rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants; rosehips are used to improve blood quality, immune function and mobility.
