Fueled by a passion for animals and natural healing, company founders Chris Jones and Michelle French personally explored the uses of the Indian herb Cissus Quadrangularis in their own healing which lead to the development of the equine performance enhancer Product X. Cissus, which has been shown in studies to heal bone fractures 33-55% faster than placebo, is the cornerstone agent in Product X. This herb expedites the healing process, assists with pain management, increases bone strength and is thought to suppress cortisol, simultaneously helping with stress-induced ulcers. Cortisol is a key factor in Cushing’s disease and breaks down muscle tissue in horses.
Performance horses at risk for bone fractures and soft tissue injuries will benefit from Product X’s rare mix of natural herbs and amino acids. Expect the following with daily use of Product X: improve strength and delay muscle fatigue, support muscle recovery after intense training, improve concentration and reaction time, support ligament, tendon and bone strength.
Besides Cissus Quadrangularis, all-natural Product X includes the herbs Spirulina and Fenugreek. It also contains Beta Alanine which dramatically delays muscle fatigue, Acetyl L-Carnitine which improves reaction time and uptake of glucose in the muscles and Citrulline Malate. The latter, a non-essential amino acid, reduces lactic acid and ammonia in the muscles, boosting energy and recovery after exercise. These ingredients have been used with great success by Olympic athletes worldwide. This supplement will not test positive or give a false positive for blood or urine tests.
