WHAT IS IT
COPHOS B is a muscle buffer and muscle energy support supplement for horses in hard work.
WHAT'S IN IT?
Ethanolamine Phosphate 100mg/ml
Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) 50ug/ml
WHAT DOES IT DO?
COPHOS B supplies readily available, energy rich phosphate which is essential to muscle function and to buffer excessive lactive acid in body systems. In addition, COPHOS B provides Vitamin B12 to essential metabolic processess, and to maintain aappetite. Phosphate is the major body buffer.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Hard physical exercise produces very large losses of muscle phosphate, in both aerobic and anaerobic work. The body cannot make phosphate, so the diet must provide all requirements. Phosphate is essential to buffer lactic acid produced during hard work, as well as in the formation of adequate glycogen to fuel physical activity, and in the conversion of glycogen to produce fuel for muscles. Finally phosphate is critical in allowing oxygen to be "dumped" from blood cells into the muscle fibres where it fuels muscle contractions.
Supplementing with phosphate supplies adequate essential phosphate required in large amounts during exercise, and allows more efficient recovery. As a major body buffer phosphate lowers the lactic acid level in working muscles by helping maintain plasma pH within normal limits, which delays acidosis and muscle fatigue. Used regularly during training and work COPHOS B improves muscular efficiency and endurance and improves recovery after hard work.
Using COPHOS B regularly in performance horses improves energy and oxygen supply to muscles, increases maximum oxygen uptake and power output, delays onset of fatigue, and promotes muscle recovery. Horses supplemented with COPHOS B exercise harder for longer.
HOW IS IT USED?
Gives horses 10ml per 450kg as oral paste, or 30ml by injecting twice weekly. COPHOS B is highly effective when given within 4 - 6 hours of anticipated hard work. COPHOS B is also very effective when given after hard work, to improve muscle recovery and the reconstitution of essential body glycogen reserves.
CAN IT BE USED WITH ANYTHING ELSE?
Yes, COPHOS B is commonly used n combination with AMP-5, and CREATINE, to improve work output, and VAM to improve recovery after hard work or to stimulate appetite in stressed animals. COPHOS B is safely used with all Nature Vet Products.
