Why It Works

The game-changing benefits of L-Carnosine

L-Carnosine is a protein building block composed of two amino acids: Alanine and Histidine. Critical to numerous tissues in both human and animal systems, it is present in high levels in skeletal muscle and also within cardiac, brain and organ tissue.

Antioxidant Properties + Toxin Removal

Recognized for non enzymatic free radical scavenging activities,  and ability to improve antioxidant capacity.

Inflammation Modulation

Prevention of cellular degeneration and toxicity by boosting cellular defense mechanisms against oxidative stress is key to moderating inflammation and associated the pain cycles.

Impact on Athletic Performance 

Carnosine buffers the PH decline that occurs in muscles during high intensity exercise to reduce muscle fatigue, maintain stamina, and expand power output.

Effect on Muscle Soreness / Tension

Minimizing a buildup of excess lactic acidity is critical to maintain proper muscle function and reduce the effects of stiffness due to overexertion.

Anti-Aging Benefits

As the body ages, carnosine levels plummet. Studies show it both slows the aging of cells, protects against age inducing processes such as glycation and mitochondrial dysfunction 

Before & After

Thermal Imaging: 1 Hour

Thermographic images taken before and after application of Prime to a horse's hip. Thermography detects inflammation and tissue stress by measuring heat signatures. Chemicals released by stressed or damaged tissue increase heat in the area, which will then read as “hot” on a thermogram. After Prime was applied, thermal images "cooled" as stress and inflammation improved.

Before & After

Bandage Bow: 36 Hours

"Swelling around the tendons is always nerve wracking. This bandage bow appeared when it seemed some bandages were on too snug. We could only ice and start using Prime in hopes it would come down because the horse was supposed to be competing FEI. I can't believe how fast this ugly looking bandage bow came down. Record time."

Before & After

Bruised Heel: 36 Hours

"It's hard to believe this didn't access! The mare must have caught the ledge in the wash rack behind the shoe. We pulled shoe and wrapped with it up with plenty of Prime. When farrier could get to us the next evening we were pretty shocked by both the improvement and the fat she was still sound! Fantastic result!"

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do each of the active ingredients in Prime Equine do?
    • Chondroitin 4-Sulfate is a foundational component of
      the body’s soft tissue matrix, and essential to the health of joints and
      tissues. At the cellular level, its antioxidant properties help to manage
      inflammation by neutralizing free radicals and minimizing the cellular
      degeneration that cause inflammation and soreness.

    • L-Carnosine is a protein building block
      naturally synthesized in the body, with several anti-oxidative properties
      critical to the circulatory, immune, and metabolic systems. L-Carnosine is
      shown to reduce oxidative stress at the cellular level. At the muscular
      level it works to improve circulation and serves as a buffer to help
      minimize the buildup of lactic acid which causes muscle fatigue and
      performance decline.

    • Magnesium Sulfate is a naturally occurring mineral
      critical to the proper function of muscles and nerves. It acts as a
      drawing agent to assist in removal of swelling and inflammation and plays
      a key role in assisting the transportation of L-Carnosine through the
      Stratum Corneum (outermost skin layers) to the tissues below.
  • How does L-Carnosine remove toxins?

    Circulation and blood flow are a vital part of the health and performance of the body's tissue. Blood delivers oxygen, which is necessary for the prevention of cellular damage, and carries away toxins built up in a tissue as a result of cellular stress and normal metabolic processes. Prime enhances circulation which is key for effective "flushing" of these toxins out of tissues where they may be concentrated, and into the blood stream where they can then be filtered out for excretion from the system. 

  • How do I apply the Prime Equine?

    Apply to a clean coat, free of grooming products or debris. Work gel through coat to ensure thorough contact with the skin.

  • How much Prime Equine should I use?

    Approximately 5-10ml for tendon area or 25-35ml for larger muscle group.

  • When do results begin with Prime Equine and how long do they last?

    Results generally begin within 45 minutes of application and typically continue for 6-10 hours. For rehabilitation support, you may apply up to four times daily and used under support bandages if desired.


  • How often should you apply Prime Equine?

    Effects begin within 45 minutes of application and often benefits experienced will increase with continued use.  Allow 25 minutes for absorption to occur prior to application of sport boots or saddle pads. If desired, coat may be cleaned with a damp towel. For post-performance recovery, work into clean coast as soon as possible
    after the effort.  

  • What about a horse going through rehabilitation for an injury?

    For the management of chronic pain, or for rehabilitative support apply 4 times daily, or as desired to meet horses’ individual needs.

  • Do you recommend for use under infrared or ceramic bandages?


  • Where is it manufactured?

    Prime Performance Emulgel is manufactured in the United States.

  • Is Prime Equine safe for other animals or humans?

    The active ingredients in Prime Equine are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) for use on all animals and people alike.  

  • Is Prime Equine fragrance free? Are there any steroids in Prime Equine?

  • Are there any warnings to be aware of for Prime Equine?
    • For external use only.
    • If swallowed, contact a Poison Control Center.
    • Do not apply to wounds or open skin.
    • Do not use in eyes or if allergic to any ingredients in this product.
    • Stop use and ask a veterinarian if skin reactions such as redness, itching, rash, excessive irritation, burning sensations, swelling, or blistering occur.
    • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Can you mix Prime Equine with other topical products?

    Prime Equine should be applied on clean skin, free of any oils or grooming products. If other topical products are used, they should be applied after Prime Equine is completely dry.
