Purina Animal Nutrition introduced SuperSport amino acid supplement, a scientifically formulated amino acid formula proven to support equine performance and overall fitness. Purina developed the proprietary formula on its 1,200-acre nutrition research farm, where it demonstrated the ability to support muscle recovery, increase exercise capacity and support muscle development.
In a controlled, 56-day study, horses received either SuperSport supplement or an identical level of protein from alfalfa pellets. Horses on SuperSport supplement saw significant improvements in key measures that are critically important to top equine athletes, including:
- Faster muscle recovery
- Increased exercise capacity
- Supported muscle development
- Maintained optimal performance
“At the highest level of competition, the smallest advantage can give you the edge you need,” said Beezie Madden, two-time team jumping Gold Medalist and Purina Ambassador. “So endurance, muscle recovery and strength all play a part in being more successful than your competitors.”
Researched and developed by PhD equine nutritionists, SuperSport supplement features an optimal amino acid profile, high-quality protein and added antioxidants to support muscle protection and repair. And it is grain-free, making it suitable for horses with sensitivities.
“At Purina, we know riders need their horses to consistently perform at their best and bounce back quickly after exercise, so they can be ready for what’s next,” said Kelly Vineyard, PhD equine nutritionist with Purina Animal Nutrition. “With SuperSport supplement, top competitors of all ages and disciplines now have a scientifically proven supplement to help their horses recover faster, increase stamina and fitness for training and competition, and develop a more athletic body type to support their performance.”
