What is carnosine?
Carnosine is a peptide that is found in the cells of almost all organisms and serves as one of the most important molecules in mammalian metabolism. Carnosine functions as the main intracellular buffer to maintain pH during exercise and also displays robust antioxidant and antiglycation properties. Due to the important nature of this molecule in metabolism, performance, and aging, carnosine has been widely studied for its ability to improve the overall health and physical work capacity of mammals.
Fast Twitch Muscles
Improves Recovery and Health
Our Technology - Carnosine Complex
Our transdermal emulgel delivers Carnosine into the muscle within 60 minutes of application.
Increasing Carnosine by ~50% unlocks substantial benefits for horses that have been unavailable until now.
With no observed skin irritation or adverse reactions, and a clean blood test, Velocity is completely show safe for your horse.
Velocity Goes Deeper and Further
The Velocity formulation has been shown to efficiently deliver Carnosine through the dermal layers when compared to topical Carnosine alone.
Clinical testing by a team of scientists and veterinarians took place at Washington State University in November and December 2019 on 10 Thoroughbred racehorses to measure the levels of Carnosine in the muscle fibers. Results were outstanding with a ~50% increase in intramuscular carnosine within 60 minutes and a 35% increase within 30 minutes.
Furthermore, the Velocity formulation sent virtually all the Carnosine through the dermal layer, whereas the topical Carnosine alone resulted in much of the Carnosine remaining in the dermal tissue.
The muscle tissues in horses contain up to 1,000 times greater concentrations of Carnosine compared to other tissues in the body. This highlights the importance that carnosine has in a horse’s health, longevity, and performance.
Supplying Carnosine directly to the muscle tissue could have far-reaching impacts on the on the horse’s performance, recovery, and long-term health.
Rigorous Blood Testing
In total, four blood samples (baseline, 90 minutes, 24 hours, and 48 hours post second application) were obtained by an independent, third-party equine specializing veterinarian practice, Miller and Associates Veterinarians. VelocityTM conveyed no risk of resulting in a positive blood test.
