Absorbine® Introduces Myoplast® - Much Anticipated Muscle Supplement Released
W.F. Young, Inc. announces that Absorbine® Myoplast® is now available in tack and feed stores throughout the United States. This is great news to horse owners who were first introduced to Absorbine Myoplast earlier this year when the company participated in a number of extensive sponsorships on the Grand Prix Jumper and FEI Dressage Circuits.
Absorbine Myoplast is formulated to provide training and performance support for exercising muscle and support normal recovery time after strenuous activity. Myoplast® has been the #1 selling amino acid supplement in Europe for over a decade and was available only in Europe through veterinarians. Absorbine is now introducing Myoplast to the United States and it is readily available through local tack shops, online dealers, catalogs, and feed stores.
Absorbine Myoplast was a sponsor of the 2008 Winter Equestrian Festival in Florida during the 12-week jumper circuit. Among the winners of the Myoplast 1.50m Classic events were Beezie Madden riding Play On, Hillary Dobbs and Marengo, and Rodrigo Pessoa on Palouchin deLigny.
“We are extremely pleased to launch Myoplast in the United States,” says Tyler F. Young, president of W. F. Young, Inc., marketers of the Absorbine line of horse care products. “The excitement and loyalty of the highest level European riders demanded that we carefully investigate how Myoplast works in this new category of amino acid supplements. We were so impressed by the research findings and the testimonials of champion riders that we knew we had to make Myoplast available here in the United States. We feel this is a historic moment not only for our company, but for the discriminate equestrian looking for the highest level of performance his or her horse can achieve. We continue to search the world for the best horse health care products we can find and bring them to our customers.”
Absorbine Vice President of Research and Development, Dr. Harry Hayes, explains how Myoplast works, “Proteins are building blocks for muscle tissue. The harder a horse works, the more protein the horse needs to support new muscle tissue. Proteins are made from organic compounds called amino acids. Myoplast provides your horse with these protein-building amino acids to support muscle performance and normal recovery time after strenuous activity. Myoplast supplies the horse with a complex balance of both non-essential and essential amino acids including L-Lysine, L-Threonine, DL-Methionine, L-Tryptophan, and six others that your horse’s body can’t produce on its own. In a proprietary formula, these essential amino acids are combined with eight non-essential acids to support muscle performance, body composition, and appearance.”
Absorbine products, including Myoplast, are available nationwide in tack shops, farm supply stores, and catalogs. For a dealer near you or for more information, visit the Absorbine website at www.absorbinemyoplast.com.
