Malic Acid helps maintain the high level of energy production required for aerobic energy in exercising horses. 

Feeding Directions: Feed at the rate of 1/4 - 1 scoop daily or as directed by your veterinarian or nutritionist.

1 scoop = 5 grams (included)

 1 lb. jar (90 - 360 day supply)

Successful exercise requires a tremendous amount of energy to support muscle.  This energy is produced by burning fuels in the muscle cell.  Fats and carbohydrate in the form of glucose, from circulating glucose or the breakdown of muscle glycogen to release glucose, are the most efficient sources of energy, as they can be burned aerobically in the presence of oxygen.  This pathway is by far the most efficient and yields the most energy.

Malic Acid is a supplement that can help maintain the high level of energy production required in exercising horses.  Malic Acid is a metabolite that is required for the function of the aerobic energy pathway – the tricarboxylic acid (Krebs) cycle. 

As an intermediate in the Krebs cycle, it generates energy/ATP from fats and glucose in the presence of oxygen. Research has shown that turnover of Malic Acid may increase by 350% during exercise, and supplementation increases energy production.
