What is AntiFizz®?
AntiFizz® contains L-theanine, a unique amino acid found in green tea that helps animals (including humans) to stay relaxed and calm.
AntiFizz® is a cost-effective, high quality, proven calming supplement. It is a convenient and easy to use powder that you add to your horse's food. It has been laboratory tested, providing you safety and peace of mind.
The active ingredient, L-theanine, is NOT on the FEI banned list of substances.
Why AntiFizz® calms your horse
AntiFizz® promotes relaxation in horses exhibiting anxiety and nervousness due to a variety of causes such as travelling, vetting, showing/events, and separation.
L-theanine is able to cross the blood brain barrier and modulate aspects of brain function. It increases activity in the alpha frequency band thereby inducing relaxation but not drowsiness. It modules the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain, increasing concentrations of serotonin (a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of well-being), dopamine (a neurotransmitter which plays a role in reward-motivated behaviour) and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA, the main neurotransmitter associated with inhibition of excitability in the central nervous system).
How often to use AntiFizz®
AntiFizz® can be used daily, or occasionally at times of increased stress.
