tendOXY gel is a regenerating gel enriched with active oxygen, soothing muscle and joint pain, which was created for sports horses exposed to significant overload during training.
The gel is intended for use both before and after training.
This product DOES NOT CONTAIN substances included by the FEI (Fédération Equestre Internationale) for doping substances indicated in the 'Equine Prohibited Substances List' (EPSL).
OXYGENATED GLYCEROL TRIESTERS, ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL, GINGER EXTRACT, WORMWOOD EXTRACT, LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL, CINNAMON ESSENTIAL OIL.
An innovative raw material that provides tissues oxygenation and improves microcirculation. It helps to nourish the muscles and remove toxins and body fluids accumulated in damaged tissues - blood, plasma or lymph, thus eliminating swelling.
The combination of essential oils of rosemary, cinnamon and lavender, thanks to its strong relaxing, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, brings relief to overtrained tissues and reduces muscle tension as well as post-exercise stiffness in the joints.
Rosemary and cinnamon oils stimulate circulation, contributing to better removal of residual fluids and toxins from damaged tissues. They also help to distribute oxygen and nutrients to the tissues.
Additionally, the essential oils alleviate stiffness and pain in rheumatism and degenerative joint diseases.
Ginger extract, due to the high content of 6-gingerol, inhibits the activity of COX-2 and 5-LOX enzymes, responsible for the production of inflammatory mediators. The component inhibits the activation of transcription factors (FN-kappa-B and NF-AT), involved in the induction of inflammatory processes. Ginger also shows a strong analgesic effect similar to ibuprofen in in-vitro and in-vivo studies.
Wormwood extract has been widely used in the case of degenerative diseases and rheumatism, due to its strong analgesic and relaxing effect, which perfectly relieves muscle, bone and joint pain and relieves stiffness during movement.
The effectiveness of tendOXY gel is not only a perfectly composed composition, it is primarily effective action.
In the study of tendOXY gel, the sEMG technique (surface electromyography) was used, one of the basic tests used in the diagnosis of muscle and peripheral nerve diseases.
With the help of this examination, it is possible to precisely determine the location, degree of damage and the nature of pathological changes, and to assess the dynamics of the disease process.
The electromyographic examination was performed using special electrodes installed on the surface of the skin along the spine.
6 horses participated in the study (3 used for recreational riding, 3 horses for sport - jumping, regularly used).
In each case, tendOXY gel significantly reduced muscle tension and influenced their relaxation, which was especially noticeable in sports horses.
The control examination (day 0) was performed in a resting position (when the muscle is completely relaxed), in horses that are regularly used, healthy, without diagnosed diseases of the locomotor system, and 2 hours after the end of training.
Then, the test horses were treated with tendOXY gel every day after the training day.
Measurements were taken 2 hours after application, on days 2, 5 and 7.
