Prevent muscle wasting during a weight loss program
Feed is one of the three pillars of the Pavo InShape Program. When you are trying to make your horse lose weight, it is - just as in people - important to prevent muscle wasting. As your horse will exercise more, the muscles will be put to work. Extra protein is required to help the muscles recover after exercising and to prevent muscle tissue from being used as a replacement energy source, which will cause muscle wasting. You could compare this with a protein shake that people take when we, perhaps all of a sudden, start to exercise more. With Pavo InShape, your horse will get all he needs in addition to his roughage.
Optimum feed support for the Pavo InShape Program
Pavo InShape is a completely vitaminised muesli with natural antioxidants and especially developed to optimally support horses during a weight loss program. In addition to a unique high-quality protein (methionine) that supports fat burning, Pavo InShape also contains an extra high amount of protein to help the muscles to recover after exercise and to prevent muscle wasting. Furthermore, with Pavo InShape, you will give your horse all the daily required vitamins, minerals and trace elements and it is free of cereals. As a result, the sugar, starch and energy levels are very low. When you are fighting overweight, it is essential that your horse does not get any extra energy. Moreover, the low sugar and starch levels will support horses with a disrupted sugar metabolism, which is often caused by overweight.
