Threonine- Enhances growth and food efficiency, produces adrenaline, and is a precursor to thyroid hormones.
Arginine- Releases insulin and growth hormone, nutritional aid in cancer therapy, fights tumor growth, and boosts T-cell production.
Histidine- Maintains plasma, hematocrit and serum albumin, releases histamine, controls pain, anti-arthritic. Also stimulates stomach acid secretion and improves appetite.
Phenylalanine- Produces epinephrine and norepinephrine and acts as an antidepressant.
Tryptophan- Component of serotonin so acts as a mood stabilizer. Precursor to niacin, and may aid in blood clotting .
Valine- Regulates protein turnover and energy metabolism with leucine and isoleucine. Is vital for muscle coordination .
Isoleucine-Fights nervous system degeneration.
Leucine- Keeps muscle protein from degrading.
****Note: The key to Amino Acid success, is to have the correct ratio of each one above. But there is more, if the horse has enough of the first most limiting Amino acid, but then runs out of the second most limiting Amino acid, it can’t use the remaining amount of the third most limiting, and so on. In other words, if the foundation isn’t there you can’t build the house.****
