Athletes are well known for taking steps to ensure optimal recovery after grueling workouts. That’s why BioStar has introduced a recovery supplement for horses: because performance and sport horses are athletes in every sense of the word. Like their human counterparts, equine athletes train rigorously, and compete in sometimes less than optimal conditions: high heat, humidity, less than optimal footing; they compete in rain, and high winds, and torrential downpours.
There can be added stress on the equine athlete from shipping, and competing in unfamiliar venues. And, as if their own stressors weren’t enough, horses are often affected by the stress of the humans and other horses around them.
Physical and mental stress impacts the digestive system, the immune system, and the glandular system at large; particularly the adrenals, the thyroid, and the liver.
