Lifeline Supplements Helps Your Horse Thrive
There are hundreds of supplements out there on the market, but it can be hard to know which ones are the best choice for your horse and what the difference is between them. The company that makes Lifeline Equine Supplements has developed an active ingredient called BioThrive®, a revolutionary serum developed using a process that preserves the biologically active factors present in plasma. What does this mean for you? BioThrive helps reduce inflammation that comes from everyday stress and rigors of a performance horse’s training life. So, that got us wondering a little more about this super serum. How can something that is so powerful help keep our performance horses training at their best? We researched more about the ins and outs of BioThrive and how these supplements are a benefit to nearly every equine athlete.
What BioThrive Is And How It Works
BioThrive is the serum-based active ingredient found only in Lifeline Equine performance supplements. BioThrive is made using a proprietary process that preserves the biologically active factors present in bovine plasma. The plasma is concentrated into serum, the serum is then spray dried into a fine powder and combined with other ingredients. More than 30 years of research has shown that the biologically active factors in BioThrive helps animals experiencing stress and subsequent poor performance.
More than 1,000 different bioactive proteins have been estimated to be functionally present in BioThrive. In numerous studies, these bioactive proteins have been shown to assist normal function of the gut barrier in animals exposed to varying degrees of stress. When bioactive proteins are introduced, they may help the immune system and gut work together to control the normal immune response.
BioThrive contains: Immune factors including transferrins and cytokines, immunoglobulins including IgG, IgA and IgM and cellular factors such as IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1), IGF-2 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-2), IGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) and TGF-β (Transforming Growth Factor-Beta).
How Lifeline Supplements Are Different
Lifeline is a multisystemic supplement, which means it can impact the horse’s gut, joints, lungs and immune system all at once. Lifeline helps horses cope with and recover from stress by reducing the inflammation associated with stress and daily exercise. Traditional supplements are made from vitamins and minerals that only work to correct nutritional deficiencies in horses.
How To Know If Lifeline Is Right For Your Horse
Lifeline is perfect for any horse that is stressed by training, trailering, competing, and even the weather-related stress. Signs your horse is stressed may include:
- Behavior: Grumpy mood, unwillingness to train, nervousness
- Appearance: Rough or dull hair coat, lack of optimal body condition
- Gut: Change in appetite, upset stomach
- Joints: Occasional soreness from normal exercise
- Lungs: Breathing & lung issues related to exercise
Lifeline Elite is perfect for performance horses and Lifeline AgeWell is best for older horses 10+.
Recent Studies Show it Works
In August, The Journal of Equine Veterinary Science will be publishing a very exciting study on the effect of BioThrive on gut health. This study showed that stressed horses given BioThrive were more likely to maintain a healthy gut than the horses that received a placebo.
