The ability to sweat is an essential physiological response in your horse if it is to perform in hot and humid climates. This ability to sweat allows your animal to maintain their interior core temperature at such a point so as not to interfere with their enzyme driven metabolic processes which are also of an essential nature.
Failure to sweat, anhydrosis, can reduce your equine athlete's ability 15-20% and jeopardize its life if forced to perform under the conditions described.
Anhydrosis is a result of excess stress. By adding the additional stress of high temperature and humidity to an already stressful environment of training, some animals just can not produce sufficient dopamine to satisfy its needs. When this imbalance occurs, your horse begins to suffer the debilitating effects of anhydrosis.

One AC is based on the theory of imbalance of dopamine to the nor-adrenaline/adrenaline complex. Dopamine is used first by the brain, then by the cardiovascular system and last by the sweating system. A reduction in dopamine below a certain level
allows the well-known vasoconstrictive properties of the nor-adrenaline/adrenaline complex to predominate and reduce the blood carrying capacity of the peripheral vascular system to a minimum, thereby reducing the ability of the sweat glands to function properly.
Ingredients: L-Tyrosine, Choline Bitartrate, Niacin, Pyrodoxine HCL and d-Calcium Pantothenate.
