Horse Study: RBC Life Sciences' Antioxidant, Microhydrin, Reduced Lactic Acid Buildup and Improved Hydration During Strenuous Exercise
Date:6/22/2009

IRVING, Texas, June 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RBC Life Sciences, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: RBCL) a provider of proprietary nutritional supplements and wound care/pain management products, announced today that the company's flagship antioxidant, Microhydrin, "significantly" reduced lactic acid buildup and improved hydration in horses during strenuous exercise.

The three-week Rutgers University study corroborates more than a dozen anecdotal and clinical studies that show the uniquely formulated Microhydrin antioxidant reduces lactic buildup, improves hydration and increases blood oxygen levels in humans.

"This and previous clinical trials prove that Microhydrin antioxidant has some very distinct and significant benefits to humans and animals participating in strenuous exercise or competition," said RBC Life Sciences' CEO and President John W. Price. "Studies have shown that lactic acid buildup can contribute to muscular acidosis and may inhibit optimal performance."

Conducted by the Equine Science Center at Rutgers, the horse trial measured blood lactate levels and weight loss of mares. During the week preceding exercise, half of the mares received Microhydrin antioxidant in their morning feed while the others received feed without the nutritional supplement. At the end of this weeklong preparation, all the mares underwent a standard exercise test on an equine treadmill. The equine center later switched the control group of mares and retested.

The study found that the mares who received Microhydrin antioxidant in their feed had more than 13% lower blood lactate levels when they reached a fatigued state. The lactate levels were nearly 15% less up to 30-minutes after exercise. A similar study in human cyclists undergoing an endurance test showed a nearly 24% reduction in blood lactate concentration.

The mares fed Microhydrin antioxidant also lost less water weight during exercise, according to the study. Similarly, the human study showed that the cyclists maintained a better state of hydration after strenuous exercise.

Microhydrin's unique hydration characteristics stem from its unique composition of silica, potassium, magnesium and vitamin C. The antioxidant's colloidal silicate minerals display a variety of properties, including an increase in surface area--bonding absorbed water as well as minerals. Specific silicate interactions play a substantial role in nutrient bioavailability by enhancing solubility properties, improving ion and water transport and also providing free radical antioxidant protection.
