Hemorex Powder was formulated for feeding to performance horses to nutritionally support pulmonary function.
Hemorex is a unique dietary formulation of Bioflavinoids, Vitamin K and Vitamin C which is intended for use in race horses. It is estimated that 75% of race horses will bleed from the lungs at some stage during their career.
Hemorex acts in a number of ways to improve the strength, elasticity and muscular tone of the lung arteries, clotting ability of the blood to mend minor vessel ruptures or leakage, and helps in reducing chronic airway inflammation. It can be administered up to an including race or competition days.
It is a unique combination of Vitamin K, which is needed in the liver to activate the proteins that are involved in blood coagulation, Vitamin C which protects against oxidation induced damage, and Bioflavinoids which improve the elasticity of the capillaries. It should be fed daily, preferably from the time horses commence training.
Bioflavinoids will aid horses lungs by three modes of action:
a) Lowering blood viscosity thus reducing blood pressure
b) Reducing the damage to blood vessels at inflamed sites
c) Strengthening and restoring elasticity to the capillaries
Vitamin K is essential for the formation of prothrombin, and the three other blood clotting proteins.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant needed to protect the capillary membranes from oxidation induced damage. Horses over stressed by training and racing often cease to produce ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
