URINATION (frequent) – Feed H29 in addition to the regular diet for 20 days taking care not to feed strong diuretics and excess sodium.

H29 is a liquid blend of amino acids, Vitamin E, Potassium, Magnesium and Honey to aid cellular balance and muscle function

Feed H29 when any one or more of the following occurrences become noticeable

1. Not content at rest or when ridden or driven not so obliging
2. Sensitive to touch on various parts of the body
3. Skin unduly itchy though free from external aggravation and infections
4. One or more joints stiffening almost as if arthritis has set in
5. Abrasions, harness burns, cuts and bruises when healing slowly
6. Eyes weeping more than usual
7. Will not stand still anymore
8. Condition lacking regardless of ample feeding and levels of protein
9. Muscles are quite hard and not yielding and fluid
10. Hoof growth poor despite good feeding
11. Cramp (Tying up) and sudden stiffness, shortness of gait
12. Lethargic, everything seems an effort.
13. Bouts of wariness and uncertainty in familiar places, not so confident
14. Lack of stamina even though flighty and not content
15. Marks, callouses and corns appear with the slightest wear and tear
16. Rash and pimples occurring on various parts of the skin
17. Continual bouts of lung disorders which take time to clear up each time they occur
18. Reduced enthusiasm and vigour no longer so interested, more detached
19. Spooky despite feeding extra magnesium and other measures taken
20. Slow to recover from any physical or mental setback

H29 Is frequently part of recommended RN (Remedial Nutrition) programmes to help support transmission, nerves, muscles, digestion, circulatory, endocrinal and eliminatory systems of the horse imparting a more flowing easy motion and confident but settled attitude.
H29 is especially beneficial when fed to horses that undulate in their eagerness to go forward, inconsistent in their enthusiasm to be ridden or driven and not beyond appearing lethargic, periodically or continually uninterested in exercise, something missing, spirit and effort compromised.
H29 is helpful in relieving tightness and touchiness of the skin and by activating glucose pumps in the intestinal wall that support healthy digestion and avoiding digestion upsets.
H29 helps support cell robustness and circulation changes, because the skin the body’s “Third Kidney” changes in the appearance of skin and hair coat are often amongst the firsts signs of setback and cellular imbalance. Adding H29 to the diet under such circumstances can be very worthwhile
H29 can play a vital role in achieving optimum fitness preventing early muscle fatigue and tying up and helps in ‘opening up’ lymphatic and vascular pathways, regulating metabolism and supporting a balanced haemostatic function.

Feed H29 in all cases of PKD (Progressive potassium depletion)
H29 is devoid of any prohibited substance and can be freely given to horses competing under rules.
H29 may be fed with L94 Liver, Lymph & Kidney tonic
H29 helps maintain optimum cellular activity and limit Calcium retention helping to maintain muscular function and reduce the onset of muscle spasm and resultant Azoturia. In most cases of ‘less than expected’ performance an ideal programme for reestablishment of form is to feed H29 for 20 days in combination with L94

For feeding to horses that are “off form,” lethargic and aggravated horses with little long term energy. For feeding to performance horses to regain/maintain optimum cellular integrity and the re-establishment of water balance. For feeding to horses that are sensitive to touch, tight or sore in the muscle, and to horses that despite appropriate feeding do not look as good as expected and when dietary levels of Mg & K are low, and during stress due to change or sudden cold. When horses exhibit uncharacteristic behavior, are grumpy and spook easily. For feeding to horses that avidly devour wood particularly green wood and suddenly become itchy for no apparent reason.

Feed whenever necessary for a period of no less than 14 days. Initially it may also be worthwhile feeding L94 for the first 10 days. H29 can be fed on a continuous basis if necessary and may be of great value to the sport horse that is inclined to suffer stress and those prone to tying up.

“NOTES – H29 is an important supplement for horses and is used to a) Help horses to return to optimum health and performance and b) to maintain optimum health and performance especially during times of mental and physical stress. In the healthy horse some 40% of the energy for maintenance is needed by the visceral organs to maintain water balance via sodium/Potassium ion pumps and in times of stress this demand can rise to 60% or more. Such a situation is the most common reason for a horse being “off form” and is apparent to the trainer as changes in attitude, recovery rates, performance, subtle changes in hair coat, digestive upset and general well being. There is also increase in the risk of viral, bacterial and fungal attack.
The primary mechanism in maintaining the constant movement of water in and out of the cell is by simple osmosis, the concentrating gradient of salts and solutes inside and outside of the cell. When the concentration gradient of salts and solutes between the inside and the outside of the cell becomes so incorrect to allow for osmosis, the horse uses the pumps to maintain levels. Besides contributing to the available salts and solutes H29 is also an effective osmolyte holding water inside the cell minimising the cell’s reliance on the energy expensive pumps.

Cellular Potassium status is dependent on a number of factors besides daily dietary available potassium. A significant portion of K is excreted in urine every day and this elimination does not immediately reduce if dietary potassium happens to drop due to changes occurring. K levels are also affected by Mg loss, Athletic and non-athletic stress, through perspiration, diuretics, thyroid activity and other factors which can all lead to PKD (Progressive Potassium loss) which causes lethargy and horses to be “off form. Feeding H29 helps get potassium back into the cells (it is easy to get K into urine, much more difficult to get it back into the cells – Ashmead)

Next to oxygen and water Potassium (part of H29) is the next immediate essential for life, fortunately it is the major mineral in grass and well preserved immature forage so to a large extent it can be taken for granted. At any time the horse is in either Positive or Negative Potassium Status, the former is when sufficient K is passing through the system (there is no storage) and there is sufficient to augment kidney and urinary discharge plus a a small percentage available for cell replenishment. The Latter is when all the potassium is being discharged and there is no surplus to retain cellular balance. Since there is no storage of Potassium outside the cells what passes through on the day and what is absorbed and creates new cells determines the status.
