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.
- CALM FOCUSED ENERGY
- IMMUNE SUPPORT
- GASTRIC HEALTH
- OVERALL STRESS PROTECTION
Ingredients: Eleutherococcus senticosus, Rhodiola rosea, Schizandra chinensis, Aralia mandschurica, Echinopanax elatus in a water-alcohol extract.
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.
LayLa Schackner –
Our Appaloosa gelding was HOT HOT HOT, and always full of agitation. He was jumpy, spooky and anxious all the time. He had ulcers that were in the healing phase, but he still was not comfortable. He would get diarrhea every single time we would get in the trailer, if we could get him in. Then he started to get summer sores. We had heard some really great things about APF Pro at some of the horse shows. Tons of great feed back and reviews. APF Pro started to make some immediate improvements in his focus and his temperament. But the Pro gave him sustained energy that my daughter didn’t need him to have. He just kind of never wore out. Even after a significant lesson, he had barely broke a sweat and was still ready to go! At that time, we had taken him back to ground work and he was very rambunctious. I called into Auburn Laboratory and asked for some advice. They immediately suggested the switch from PRO to the PLUS and a slight diet change. We noticed a difference in him within two weeks. He was settling into himself. He seemed to finally be comfortable in his own skin. His diarrhea stopped when we rally, show or travel. He loads into the trailer without any anxiety! We give him a handful of Purina Outlast at 5 extra cc’s of PLUS before trailering, when we unload him into his show stall, and then instead of 10cc all at once- we give him 5cc twice per day to dress his grain just to make sure he feels settled in a possibly stressful situation. He is ulcer free, has moved up a level, he is focused and present in his lessons, and he is progressing. I strongly believe that APF Plus has been an integral piece of PICASSO’s success. We recently added a small amount of magnesium to compliment the already wonderful results from APF and we are more than thrilled. His future is looking bright and his health, weight, and his mentality has never been better. His recovery after a tough ride seems to be managed with ease. The PLUS supports his gastric health and his focus. I am hoping that this year the immune boosting properties in the PLUS will be enough to help PICASSO ward off the summer sores that he is prone to.
