Protect Horses During Intense Exercise and Preserve Their Performance Potential
Horses have fragile muscle and joint membranes.
Horses in work are particularly vulnerable to slow recovery and joint issues.
Intense training of Race and Eventing Horses is a significant source of oxidative stress which can weaken cell membranes, lead to slow recovery and lead to problems with joints and muscles.
Protect your horses and preserve their performance potential.
Fiskens Harness, a NZ First!
Harness is an All New Racehorse Feed Containing the Next Generation Antioxidant MELOFEED®
The antioxidant MELOFEED® along with Organic Selenium and Vitamin E constitute an efficient means of defence against oxidative stress following intense physical exertion.
Restore and maintain cell membrane integrity in muscular cells, improve horse resistance to physical effort.

Intense training of racehorses is a significant source of oxidative stress linked to the excessive production of ROS during the cellular respiration process.
Oxidative stress has a negative effect on resistance during training because it weakens cell membranes and prevents optimal cell function. Joints and muscles are key physiological compartments.
It’s crucial to protect them in order to preserve the performance potential of athlete horses.
MELOFEED® has a strong antioxidant potential thanks to the stimulation of the entire first line of antioxidant defence.
The antioxidant MELOFEED® along with organic selenium and vitamin E, constitute an efficient means of defence against oxidative stress following intense physical exertion.
Recent studies open new prospects in primary antioxidant supplementation with a view to maintain the muscle and joint integrity of
- Athlete Horses
- Horses suffering from joint pathologies
- Ageing horses.
Supplementation with an antioxidant combination (MELOFEED® along with Organic Selenium and Vitamin E) proves to be efficient at reducing values of blood parameters CPK and SGOT for horses having high initial values, starting at the first week of supplementation.
- Supplementation with this antioxidant combination proves to be efficient at maintaining optimal values of these parameters in long term, for horses having acceptable initial values at the beginning of the period.
- Combining MELOFEED®, ORGANIC SELENIUM and Vitamin E is therefore of particular interest to restore and maintain cell membrane integrity in muscular cells, and consequently to improve horse resistance to physical effort.

What Is MELOFEED®?
Melofeed is a natural super antioxidant derived from Melons.
French researchers discovered a type of Melon with a shelf life 4 times that of other Melons.
It Effectively Seemed to Resist Ageing!
They discovered this melon had 20 times the antioxidants levels of other melons - and they were able to use those antioxidants - that prevented cell breakdown - not only in cosmetic products for humans but in the horse racing industry.
For the for the first time in NZ, MELOFEED® is being added to horse feed right here - at Fiskens - in our Harness Feed!
Fiskens Harness Horse Feed with MELOFEED® (link to product) is a high energy, high protein feed for horses in full work - with micronized barley and lupins for greater digestion efficiency.
The Super Antioxidant properties of MELOFEED® combined with Organic Selenium and Vitamin E have been found to be a very effect barrier against free radical build up in cells that occurs during periods of intense exercise in horses.
This helps prevent muscle and joint damage and allows your horse to recover quickly.
