Harness The Power!

Fiskens Harness, for Intense Exercise – Harness Racing, Thoroughbreds and Eventers.

A high energy feed for horses in full work, containing high quality proteins such as Micronized Lupins for muscle repair. With Melofeed® Next Generation Antioxidant.  Helps reduce damage to muscle fibres that occurs during intense exercise.


A FIRST FOR NZ!  MELOFEED®

MELOFEED® Antioxidant With Anti-Ageing Properties – a first for NZ Horse Feed

Fiskens Harness Horse Feed with MELOFEED® is a high energy, high protein feed for horses in full work - with micronized barley and lupins for greater digestion efficiency.

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

And now for the for the first time in NZ, MELOFEED® is being added to horse feed right here - at Fiskens - in our Harness Feed!

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.

Also includes premium energy sources - including Cold Pressed Canola Oil with Omega 3 and 6 to enhance speed and reduce fatigue - and Micronized Barley for easy digestion. Gives your horse the nutrition for optimum performance when it needs it - and the edge out on the track. 

Protect Your Race Horses and Preserve Their Performance Potential

Horses have fragile muscle and joint membranes. Race Horses in work are particularly vulnerable to slow recovery and joint issues. Intense training of Race 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.

We’ve created Fiskens Harness, An All New Race Horse Feed Containing the Antioxidants MELOFEED®, Organic Selenium and Vitamin E

The antioxidant solutions MELOFEED®, Organic Selenium and Vitamin E constitute an efficient means of defence against oxidative stress following intense physical exertion.

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.

READ MORE

Intense training of race horses is an important 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 is therefore crucial to protect them in order to preserve the performance potential of athlete horses.

The antioxidant solutions MELOFEED®, Organic Selenium and Vitamin E constitute an efficient means of defence against oxidative stress following intense physical exertion.

An innovative approach to combat oxidative stress is to act at the level of the first antioxidant line of defence by stimulating the antioxidant enzymes: superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx). In an animal model, the ingestion of SOD in the form of MELOFEED can induce the endogenous expression of these three enzymes.

Thus, MELOFEED® has a strong antioxidant potential thanks to the stimulation of the entire first line of antioxidant defence. As a GPx cofactor, organic selenium enhances the effect of MELOFEED® by acting during the phase of hydrogen peroxide elimination.

The combination of MELOFEED® and Organic Selenium, which act in a complementary fashion on the first line of antioxidant defence, is of crucial importance in preventing the formation of excessive ROS and controlling oxidative stress, and consequently preserving the performance capital of our horses.

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 and/or ageing horses.

Supplementation with an antioxidant combination (MELOFEED®, 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.
