APF Plus is the most recent formulation in the Advanced Protection Formula line of natural herbal supplements for use in equine athletes. APF Plus builds on the proven nutritional technology of the original APF (Advanced Protection Formula) with the addition of the herb, Aralia mandschurica. Aralia mandschurica has been shown in studies to protect the function of the gastrointestinal system affected by stress and is also cardio-protective. Like Rhodiola rosea, Aralia mandschurica helps promote attention and focus when working under stressful conditions.
APF Plus also provides protection for both the immune system and the energy cycle. Containing both Aralia mandschurica and Echinopanax elatus – both important herbs that support the body’s uptake and utilization of glucose for energy – APF Plus helps your horse respond to athletic training and stress with a steady, calm energy that improves both output and recovery.

APF Plus – Equine Advanced Protection Formula
Building on the success of APF, we added an additional herb – Aralia mandschurica – to provide support for gastric health. Many owners seeking to provide nutritional support for their horses who suffer from insulin resistance or Equine Metabolic Syndrome, choose APF Plus for this added benefit.
Proper glucose metabolism, immune support, and overall stress protection are important to the success of any management program for the insulin resistant or Cushing’s horse. With APF Plus, you can also provide your horse with nutritional support for a healthy digestive system. This can be very important if your horse has to be confined more than usual, experiences a reduction in feed, or must be on long-term NSAIDs.
Because of this additional nutritional gastric support, APF Plus has become a favorite supplement for competitors due to its unique, broad-based stress protection, immune support, glucose metabolism, and gastric health. Competitors report improved feed efficiency, improved attitude and “steadiness”, and a willingness to perform without excitability or “nerves” that can often be seen when feeding many performance supplements. APF Plus helps your horse respond to athletic training and stress with a steady, calm energy that improves both performance and recovery.
