A new organic way to supplement horses

Mushrooms are one of the oldest foods in existence and particular mushrooms are very rich in nutrients fed to horses from synthetic or animal sources.

Calm Performance Matrix is a focus product containing 3 mushroom species of specific chemistry and activity. Calm Performance Matrix contains Cordyceps militaris, which is a COX-2 inhibitor (anti-inflammatory), and improves oxygen uptake by 30% while increasing ATP by 25% which all contribute to increased performance. Calm Performance Matrix also contains very specific glycol-proteins that have specific cell receptor signal transductance pathways to DNA expression. This activity is primarily derived from the Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) mushroom and works explicitly with the horse’s immune response. Additionally, the product contains a large percentage of the King Trumpet (Pleurotus eryngii) mushroom mycelial biomass and fruit bodies. The King Trumpet mushroom is another COX-2 inhibitor but, as or more important, also contains significant amounts L-ergothioneine and anti-oxidant cycle enzymes, which significantly improve cell integrity in responding to oxidative stress. This is significant in producing the “calming” effect of Calm Performance Matrix. This “calming” effect is generally the first response horse owners and trainers notice in their horses after administering Calm Performance Matrix.
