How do its active ingredients work?


Medium chain fatty acids

The nutritional requirements of animals are modified by exercise. The amount of energy required for exercise depends on the total work done and this is highly variable for sporting animals that perform an intermediate activity. Their energy needs vary from 2 to 5 times their resting energy needs, being the energy requirements of endurance athletes more than 5 times their resting energy needs. Due to its energy concentration, fat is an ideal nutrient to be incorporated into the diet of animals that practice medium-long term exercise. Furthermore, medium chain fatty acids (fatty acids of 8 to 12 carbons) do not depend on L-canitine for transport across the mitochondrial membrane, avoiding this limiting step of fatty acid oxidation.


Branched chain animo acids

Physical activity increases the protein requirements of the animal due to an increase in the synthesis of structural and functional proteins, as well as an increase in tissue catabolism. The branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) are “essential” and therefore must be replaced through food. Branched-chain amino acid supplementation decreases exercise-induced protein degradation and reduces the release of muscle enzymes (indicators of muscle damage). In this way, the supplementation of branched chain amino acids during intense training helps increase muscle mass.



L-Carnitine is the fatty acid transporter from the cytosol to the mitochondria of cells, being responsible for the limiting step of lipid oxidation. The increase in cellular levels of carnitine improves the transport of fatty acids to the mitochondria and, consequently, the metabolism of fats.



Under conditions of low oxygen availability, nitrate is converted to nitric oxide, which plays an important role in vascular and metabolic control. Dietary nitrate supplementation increases the concentration of nitrite in plasma and reduces resting blood pressure in addition to reducing the cost of submaximal exercise oxygen, being able to improve exercise tolerance and physical performance.
  • Sporting animals that practice intermediate exercise (physical activity of variable duration from a few minutes to a few  hours): Agility, exercise accompanying people (running, trekking, cycling), canicross, dog dancing, disc dog, dog jumping, bikejoring, skijoring, etc.
  • Sporting animals that practice endurance exercise (physical activity of various hours): Mushing (race, expedition).
  • Working animals: Police and army units (checkpoint control, drug detection), guard, trail, rescue, service dogs (guide and assistance dogs), shepherds, etc.
