Intense Muscle Builder
MUSCLE MAX is designed for use on all horses in training and sales preparations and for improved fertility in mares and stallions.
MUSCLE MAX will maintain and build muscle mass with stronger top line and have improvement in overall condition.
MUSCLE MAX contains a natural occurring source of gamma-oryzanol a plant sterol emulsified in an oil base which increases bioavailability by up to 410% supporting muscle building and conditioning.
MUSCLE MAX is also an abundant source of synergistic antioxidants Vitamin E including tocopherols, tocotrienols natural antioxidants & oryzanol.
MUSCLE MAX works not only to stimulate skeletal muscle tissue growth but acts as an anti-stress supplement.
What is Gamma Oryzanol?
Gamma Oryzanol is a rice bran oil derivative with two major active molecules, Sterol and Ferulic acid, and is recognised globally for its anabolic-like effects.
Benefits of Gamma Oryzanol
Muscle max helps to build muscle mass my maximising the efficiency of muscle metabolism through its anabolic properties. One of the key ingredients which assist in kick starting this mechanism is Gamma Oryzanol, which is a plant sterol derived from Rice Bran. Equine studies have shown that supplementing thoroughbred diets with Gamma Oryzanol helps to prevent exercise-induced muscle damage during training preparation for racing season. The study found a significant decrease in post-exercise creatinine kinase and blood lactate activity from the Gamma Oryzanol supplemented horses.
Antioxidants have the ability to inactivate free radicals with in cells. Without the help of antioxidants free radicals can cause damage to the cell membranes. Gamma Oryzanol acts as a potent antioxidant. A laboratory study found that gamma-oryzanol was more than four times as effective at stopping tissue oxidation (caused by free radicals) than vitamin E.
Another study looking into the effects of Gamma Oryzanol supplementation on the reproduction in stallions suggested that Gamma Oryzanol increased the total antioxidant potential of the semen. In addition, higher membrane functionality and motility was detected, possibly due to antioxidant protection preventing lipid peroxidation of sperm membranes or attributable to improved membrane fluidity.
Why use Muscle Max?
Trials in the US, Australia and Japan have shown Gamma Oryzanol has strong benefits on weight gain and performance, comparable to some anabolic steroids. Gamma Oryzanol stimulates the endocrine system in horses, resulting in increased metabolism of fat and increases synthesis of protein. This leads to a direct increase in lean body mass.
Further research in horses has confirmed that Gamma Oryzanol improves muscle to fat ratio and increases muscle
definition in the rump, neck and over the withers. Clear improvements were also noted for maintained appetite and lower cholesterol levels due to Gamma Oryzanol being a natural and abundant source of synergistic Antioxidants Vitamin E, including tocopherols and tocotrienols (the most active form of antioxidant).
