The reason that the fantastic Lisa Williams is on this product’s label, is because the idea for this product was conceived in a chat with Lisa and her amazing vet in her Kyalami tackroom. They told me how a product for Monday Morning disease(MMD), as well as for performance enhancement and fatigue was desparately needed.

 
I went home after that and started thinking:
 
The marker for MMD in blood tests is a molecule called Creatine Kinase (CK) – high levels means your horse is suffering from (amongst other things) some kind of pain, muscle damage or MMD. CK activity can be easily brought down by increasing the amount of L-Carnitine (an amino acid) in your horse’s diet. Scientists also found that L-Carnitine decreased the chance of lameness in horses.
 
A herb, called Boswellia serrata (currently FEI legal) dramatically decreases inflammation in horses.
 
In humans, a lot of research has been done into beetroot as a exercise performance enhancer. Beetroot increases athletic performance in a number of different ways: aerobic performance improves, power output is better, longer endurance, better oxygen utilisation and quicker recovery. It is also a potent antioxidant.
 
Lastly, another amino acid, called Beta-Alanine, is the precursor to a molecule called Carnosine, which is present in muscles. Muscles seem to perform much better when there are higher levels of Carnosine present. And supplementing Beta-Alanine increases Carnosine levels by up to 80%. In fact, what we have always thought of as innate ‘talent’ might actually just be higher levels of Carnosine.
 
Inventing Stamina mix involved all of the above and, so far, reportbacks from horseriders have been extremelyencouraging. So, if you have a horse who suffers from MMD, or who just gets tired when competing, try this. Then let me know what you think.
