Wellington, FL- In an effort to introduce their new amino acid muscle supplement, Myoplast, to U.S. competitors, Absorbine is supporting and sponsoring a number of dressage competitions on the prestigious Florida Winter Dressage circuit.  This past weekend, 8 National Level champions and winners of the Open Grand Prix level classes at the Gold Coast Dressage CDI Opener were recognized with Myoplast awards from Absorbine.

Myoplast is a concentrated amino acid muscle supplement formulated to support the development of lean muscle mass in performance horses. Previously available only in Europe through veterinarians, Absorbine introduces Myoplast to the United States as an over-the-counter supplement available at local tack shops and feed stores.

“We are extremely pleased to introduce Myoplast to the United States,” says Tyler F. Young, president of W. F. Young, Inc., marketers of the Absorbine line of horse care products.  “The excitement and loyalty of the highest-level European riders demanded that we carefully investigate how Myoplast works in this new category of muscle supplements.  We were so impressed by the research findings and the testimonials of champion riders that we knew we had to make Myoplast available here in the United States”.


German, French, and Swedish studies support the successful claims of Myoplast. The product has been used by champion equestrians throughout Europe.  It is the number one selling muscle supplement in Germany and has been endorsed by top equine athletes and trainers including German Olympian Lars Neiberg.
