Equi-Tite quickly cools the muscle groups and tendons providing immediate comfort after strenuous activity. Menthol works by dilating the blood vessels that feed the joints. This widening of the blood vessels allows enhanced blood flow throughout the legs, thereby reducing swelling caused by over-exertion or injury. Increasing the blood flow not only cools but also helps feed oxygen and nutrients to the muscles.
Equi-Tite also contains Capsaicin in order to help knock out the pain. Equi-Tite helps maintain the depletion of Substance P. This works absolute wonders on strained ligaments and tendons. Unlike other leg tighteners, which can involve messy and time-consuming application and removal procedures, Equi-Tite is quick and easy! Just rub the liniment into the desired area. There is no clean up! Bandaging is optional. Horses love it as a Liniment because it medicates and cools.
