Help with muscle supplements

Getting my older guy back in shape. Have been slowly getting back into training schedule - hills, poles, collected walk/trot/canter. I would like some feedback on muscle building supplements that any of you guys have tried. He is currently on joint supplements and a senior multi vitamin w/ probiotics. I dont need a supplement with all the extras added, just whatever it is that helps build/repair muscle. Any helpful advice would be great.

I would usually recommend dac Bloom and dac Orange together.

But if you are happy with the combination you are already using maybe just add dac Oil. I don't know what joint supp you are giving and hopefully it is a good one. Achy joints will keep them from putting on muslce/weight too.

dac Oil contains fatty acids from flax oil, fish oil, wheat germ oil, soybean oil, rice oil, and corn oil. It has very little settling in the bottom of the jug - and that is seen more during the cold months, I have never had any go rancid on me and ALL of my guys are on the Oil or Bloom year-round.

My horses have done so well on dac that I became a rep. Stand behind 'em 110%.

Amino acids are the building blocks for building muscle. I'd look at Uckele's Tri-Amino. It's a basic supplement, just the main amino's needed for muscles.
