Ethanolamine Phosphate 100 mg/mL Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) 50 ug/mL
Features and Benefits
COPHOS B is a muscle buffer and muscle energy support supplement for horses in hard work.
COPHOS B supplies readily available, energy rich phosphate which is essential to muscle function and to buffer excessive lactic acid in body systems. In addition, COPHOS B provides Vitamin B 12 to essential metabolic processes, and to maintain appetite. Phosphate is the major body buffer.
Hard physical exercise produces very large losses of muscle phosphate, in both aerobic and anaerobic work. The body cannot make phosphate, so the diet must provide all requirements. Phosphate is essential to buffer lactic acid produced during hard work, as well as in the formation of adequate glycogen to fuel physical activity, and in the conversion of glycogen to produce fuel for muscles. Finally phosphate is critical in allowing oxygen to be dumped from blood cells into the muscle fibres where it fuels muscle contractions. Supplementing with phosphate supplies adequate essential phosphate required in large amounts during exercise, and allows more efficient recovery. As a major body buffer phosphate lowers the lactic acid level in working muscles by helping maintain plasma pH within normal limits, which delays acidosis and muscle fatigue. Used regularly during training and work COPHOS B improves muscular efficiency and endurance and improves recovery after hard work.
Using COPHOS B regularly in performance horses improves energy and oxygen supply to muscles, increases maximum oxygen uptake and power output, delays onset of fatigue , and promotes muscle recovery.
Horses supplemented with COPHOS B exercise harder for longer.
Dosage and Administration
Give horses 10 mL per 450 kg as oral paste, or 30 mL by injection twice weekly. COPHOS B is highly effective when given within 4 - 6 hours of anticipated hard work. COPHOS B is also very effective when given after hard work, to improve muscle recovery and the reconstitution of essential body glycogen reserves.
Can It Be Used With Anything Else?
Yes. COPHOS B is commonly used in combination with AMP-5, and CREATINE, to improve work output, and VAM to improve recovery after hard work or to stimulate appetite in stressed animals.
COPHOS B is safely used with all Nature Vet products.
100 mL sterile injection for intramuscular (or intravenous injection under veterinary supervision).
Store below 25oC (Air Conditioning). Protect from light.
APVMA Approval Number
Horses respond well to COPHOS B and VAM as soon as possible after hard races to improve recovery. Can also combine with RECOVERY Paste to improve muscle recovery.
COPHOS B paste or injection, used 48 hours, 24 hours and again 4 - 6 hours pre-event, to "load" phosphate into muscles increases the muscle buffering capacity which may help delay the onset of muscle fatigue. Combine COPHOS B with AMP-5 given 24 hours and again 4 hours pre-event.
COPHOS B is useful for both sprinting and staying work. It is required during both aerobic and anaerobic work. COPHOS B improves the ability of oxygen to reach the muscle fibres where it is required to fuel muscle work.
