Key Ingredients

Foeniculum Vulgare

Foeniculum Vulgare is famous for its broad effects on intestinal health (anti-colitis and antispasmodic activity), respiration, the immune system (anti-bacterial and anti-viral effects), and the brain (anti-stress, anti-anxiety, and memory-enhancing effects). In race horses, F. Vulgare has shown to be beneficial for both respiratory and intestinal health (Pearson et al., 2007; Wullf-Tilford, 1999; Badgujar, et al., 2014; Anka et al., 2020).

Lipidum Perivianum Chacon (Maca)

Lipidium Perivianum stimulates the endocrine glands to balance hormone levels, can strengthen and increase bone strength by influencing calcium and phosphorus levels, shows enhancing libido and fertility activity, and enhances overall energy levels. (Meissner et al., 2006; Muller, 2002; Walker, 1998).

Schisandra Chinensis
(Wu Wei Zi)

Schisandra Chinensis enhances endurance in horses by reducing blood lactate concentrations. It furthermore reduces increases in heart rate throughout exercise and enhances quicker restoration of the respiratory frequency immediately after the race (Oh et al., 2013). One study showed that race horses treated with S. Chinensis were on average 1.8 seconds faster than untreated animals on a distance of 800 meters (Ahumada, 1989). S. Chinensis further improves muscle strength, provides protection against cartilage degradation and osteoporosis, contributes to cardiovascular health, and has powerful and widely diverse anti-viral and anti-microbial activity (Chun et al., 2014; Hou et al., 2020; Chen et al., 2018; Kim et al., 2018; Yeon et al., 2020; Yi et al., 2016).

Ascophyllum Nodosum
(Brown Seaweed)

Ascophyllum nodosum is a brown seaweed famous for its intestinal health-beneficial effects (Wang et al., 2020; Keleszade et al., 2021). It has high antioxidant activity and contains a broad amount of bioactive ingredients like phenols, terpenoids, proteins, and lipids. Knowledge from different studies have shown that Ascophyllum shows antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anticoagulant activities (Chen et al., 2018; Totani et al., 2007).

Core values

  • Solid science
  • Breakthrough innovation
  • Highest quality standards
  • Sustainable equestrianism

Science behind Peak Performance®

The novel scientific approach allowed Delta Horse Power® to enter the clinical evaluation phase in the horse with a very good prediction of the effects in the body of the animal.

An exclusive clinical trial in an international high-performing European equine facility is currently being finalized and will measure and demonstrate the effects at various levels.

  1. Maximizing genetic potential:
    RNA sequencing of the equine blood samples will measure the activity of 12.943 genes by the production of specific proteins responsible for several functions in the equine body.
  2. Optimizing Metabolic output:
    A huge investment was made in measuring a complete profile of metabolites.
