The use of Steroids are banned in all equine sports because their action is to increase muscle strength and endurance, allowing the horse to train considerably longer and harder giving a clear advantage.
While many racehorse owners and trainers argue that steroids have a beneficial effect in the treatment of various conditions in horses and also to help them recover from surgeries and injuries, using these drugs to enhance performance is not only detrimental to the horse but damaging to the sport as well.
Steroids have many unwanted side effects and health issues that make therapeutic long term use undesirable. The side effects are caused by the androgenic action and include liver damage, water retention, aggressive behaviour and breeding difficulties.
Scientists manufacture steroids to give the maximum anabolic action and the minimum androgenic action the latter contains the side effects. Unfortunately scientists have failed to separate the anabolic from the androgenic and this class of drugs is destined to remain a banned substance.
However in a recent scientific breakthrough a natural compound has been extracted and stabilised with a higher anabolic (110% increase in protein synthesis) action and no androgenic side effects which means for the first time trainers can reproduce and improve on the effects of a steroid without using an illegal drug.
Superfix Performance has been compared with a synthetic steroid known for its muscle enhancing properties in an experiment involving muscle fibres and protein synthesis. Methandrostolone did not have the same effect on protein synthesis as ecdysterone did which confirms that synthetic steroids act in a completely different way and their effect involves hormonal action including testosterone.
The anabolic action begins in 2 hours and lasts for 24hrs.
The compound in Superfix Performance does not raise testosterone in horses but it does activate the serine/threonine protein kinase (Akt) pathway. Currently, Akt is one of the most actively studied kinases or kinase pathways in drug development areas.
Activated Akt plays a key role in mediating signals for cell growth, cell survival (anti-apoptotic), cell-cycle progression, differentiation, transcription, translation, and glucose metabolism.
Protein synthesis begins to increase after 2 hours and rises to a maximum after 4 hours with no sudden drop in energy levels.
Dosage: £3.00 per daily dose (10 mg) give 1 month results noticeable in 1-5 days.
Delivery & Returns
We want to be crystal clear when it comes to managing your expectations; our website is stock-managed to show you what items are available for same-day dispatch and those that are externally warehoused and therefore, will take a little longer to arrive with you.
Simply make your product selections and a message will pop up telling you how long it will take us to dispatch your order; we call this our product availability message. If you are happy with the product availability message on the item, checkout your order and we will ship your order in the timeframe stated.
If you have lots of items in your basket, please use the longest product availability message to work out when your order will arrive. We care about our environmental impact, so we don't split ship orders unless you get in touch to request that we do so. We will let you know on your order confirmation when we expect your order will arrive with you.
Whilst we do our best to meet the handling times stated in the product availability message, occasionally we can experience some delays in the delivery network. At these times, a team member will email you to keep you updated on the progress of your order.
Selecting FedEx or DPD does not change our expected handling times; the service selected is always from the point of despatch not purchase.
If you do require an order urgently, please contact us before ordering to ensure we can accommodate your requirements as we hate to be party poopers!

· It is earlier than 1pm (if it is later than this please get in touch before ordering as we may still be able to assist)
· It is a weekday (weekdays are Monday - Friday)
· All items on your order show a product availability message of "Express warehouse: immediate despatch"
· You have selected FedEx or DPD as your delivery option during checkout
Delivery is the next working day (please note Saturday and Sunday are not considered working days; if you require a Saturday delivery there will be an additional charge and you will need to contact customer services prior to ordering)
If you are unsure, please call our team and we will do what we can to help you get your order promptly.
Which couriers do you use?
Before choosing a courier, please make sure you are happy with the product availability message as these handling times apply before we ship your order. This appears in a green box beneath your product selections.

We use FedEx, DPD and Royal Mail for most of our deliveries. Some large items may come with other trusted 3rd party couriers.
Our Royal Mail economy service is usually delivered in two to three days. You will receive a text message and an email confirming the day of delivery; Royal Mail provides a four-hour time window for delivery.
FedEx and DPD are delivered the next day from point of dispatch for UK mainland addresses or in two working days for Scottish Highlands, Islands, Northern Ireland, and Irish addresses. You will receive a text message and an email confirming the day and an hour's time window for delivery. Selecting FedEx or DPD does not mean your order will bypass our handling times; FedEx and DPD are from the point of despatch, not the point of purchase.
We offer a no hassle 30 days returns policy for refunds and exchanges. This starts from the day you receive your order.
We offer a low cost returns service at a charge of £4.99 which covers the cost of returning your item and receiving your replacement order, further details can be found on our returns and exchanges page.
