When your horse is working, the muscles are working hard and may benefit from targeted nutritional support. Clinically tested Muscle CK is scientifically formulated to provide a select and balanced blend of natural ingredients that supports tissue anti-oxidant activity and exercise recovery.
Evidence-based research of ingredients within Muscle CK demonstrate support of muscle growth and healthy muscle structure and function.
- Supports muscle anti-oxidant activity
- Supports healthy muscle membranes
- Supports healthy muscle structure and function
- Supports muscle recovery from exercise
- Supports healthy muscle growth
- Supports cardiovascular health
- Vitamin D supports muscle and bone health

Healthy muscles, capable of strong, repeated contractions, of generating full range of motion, and of recovering quickly are important to achieving peak performance in performance horses of all disciplines. Muscles respond rapidly to the stresses exercise, training and competition.
They similarly respond rapidly to nutrition – dietary deficiencies are seen as a poor performance, poor recovery, muscle pain and inflammation. Muscles are capable of a very high rate of metabolic activity, and this creates challenges with respect to the generation of reactive oxygen species – ROS – within cells. Excessive ROS generation, resulting from high intensity exercise, training and competition is associated with muscle pain and inflammation. High quality nutrition can mitigate the detrimental effects of ROS, and support muscle integrity, recovery and health.
OVVET Muscle-CK is scientifically designed using carefully selected ingredients to combat the oxidative stress associated with high intensity exercise, training and competition. Evidence based research has shown that horses receiving OVVET Muscle-CK daily had decreased muscle leakiness after high intensity exercise training and reduced indicators of muscle inflammation (Lindinger et al. 2016). Use of OVVET Muscle -CK therefore supported muscle integrity and health after exercise training.
OVVET Muscle-CK was scientifically developed to assist muscle health in two ways:
- At the level of muscles by providing anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory support.
- Systemically in the body through immune system support. This second mechanism is very important because the body fights infection, inflammation and oxidative stress through the immune system.
OVVET Muscle-CK. Scientific research using horses has shown that daily supplementation of the feed with Muscle-CK supports healthy muscles in extreme conditions, supporting normal and healthy exercise training and competition activities. The carefully selected, high quality natural ingredients in OVVET Muscle-CK have anti-oxidative potential and anti-inflammatory potential.
Nutrients in Muscle-CK support a healthy tissue immune response, facilitating high intensity training and competition. It is also recommended for ageing horses needing nutrient support to maintain an active lifestyle. Muscle-CK has exceptional levels of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, SOD and catalase antioxidant enzymes (classified as a “Primary”) and is capable of inducing anti-oxidant systems throughout the body. These natural ingredients have been well researched for their ability to support muscle and whole body health.

Daily, three scoops (1 scoop = 10g) twice daily, mixed into the feed (not hay), add water and ideally allow to soak for 30 minutes before feeding. Dry feeds should be wetted to minimise the risk of choke.
Use daily while the horse is in training and competition, or for as long as needed to help sustain ageing horses, with the advice of a veterinarian.
Cautions / Contraindications:
A feed supplement for horses not intended for food. Consult your veterinarian if using medication or for general advice.
Do not exceed recommended dose.
Administer during or after the animal has eaten to reduce incidence of gastrointestinal upset.
Store in a cool dry place, keep out of direct sunlight. Reapply lid after use.
