Richtafort Phosphorous 125 +Vitamin B12 Injection for horses, cattle and dogs is a high potency phosphorus injection which also provides additional vitamin B12. It gives 500mg of phosphorus at the recommended dose (25mL) and supplies fast, reliable, predictable phosphorus for the athletic horse.
Phosphorus is essential for bone and skeletal development. It promotes carbohydrate metabolism, energises skeletal and cardiac muscle, and supports metabolic function. Vitamin B12 influences red blood cell production and improves carbohydrate and protein utilisation.
Phosphorus is not produced by the body, it must be externally supplied. Horses can get phosphorous in grains, hay and roughage, as phosphorus supplements ie. mono sodium phosphate, or as inorganic phosphorus (the most available phosphorus) Richtafort 125 phosphorus supplement + vitamin B12 injection. Phosphorus from grains, hay and roughage is variable. The absorption of oral phosphorus is low (30–50%).
The athletic horse needs more phosphorous to replace phosphorus used up at all levels of exercise (slow and fast work, walking swimming, etc.), to replace phosphorus consumed at racing and for bone, cartilage and joints. The immediate source of muscular energy includes compounds that require phosphorus for their formation. These include adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and glycogen. ATP is the immediate fuel for all muscular reaction and must be present in the muscle cell at all times. Creatine phosphate is a major storage form of high energy phosphates in the muscle. Creatine phosphate is required for muscular contractions. It is reported to delay the onset of muscular fatigue.
Richtafort is a predictable and reliable phosphorus supplement for horses. Begin treating horses with Richtafort when they start racing. Treat horses regularly with Richtafort (once a-week). Treat with Richtafort after racing to replace phosphorus “used up” by muscular activity. Horses that are “picky and poor eaters” can be treated with Richtafort.
