Copper has potent anti-fungal and antibacterial properties as well as an essential trace element for the normal function of many tissues and is indispensable for the generation of new capillaries and skin. CuTech® allows copper ions to be released from the yarn which can be beneficial in the healing of cuts, wounds, and hard-to-treat skin pathologies.
Copper complexes are highly effective anti-inflammatory agents. The elastic fibers of connective tissue need copper for tensile strength. Wearing copper bracelets is a time-tested anti-inflammatory treatment, but the amount of copper absorbed is relatively low. When adding CuHorse™ to your horse's therapy program, you will be able to safely provide therapeutic copper to your horse.
CuTech® is effective in reducing odor control as well. It promotes healthier-looking skin. Because skin regenerates every 2 weeks, the antimicrobial CuHorse™ can promote wound healing, as infection is known to reduce skin regeneration. With the use of CuTech® fabric, CuHorse™ continuously reduces bacterial contamination, achieving 99.9% reduction within 2 hours of exposure. This surface kills greater than 99.9% of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria within 2 hours of exposure. This surface delivers continuous and ongoing antibacterial action, remaining effective in killing greater than 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours. It can continue to kill even after repeated contamination. CuHorse™ helps inhibit buildup and growth of bacteria. Peer-reviewed scientific publications show Antimicrobial Copper to be effective against bacteria, viruses, fungi, molds, MRSA, H1N1 Influenza, Clostridium difficile, VRE, Staphylococcus aureus, E-Coli and many more. Bacteria typically are not 'mobile' by themselves; they don't fly or crawl from place to place. They are transported solely by contact. CuHorse™ helps to prevent this transportation.
Because of the inherent nature of copper, copper plays a major role in the transfer of heat. As horse owners, we understand the need to keep heat from being built up in the legs and body. At PHT we are firm believers in homeostasis. By incorporating copper CuTech® into our CuHorse™ products we are able to bring a powerful player to homeostasis* in our horses. *Homeostasis: a process by which biological systems tend to maintain stability while adjusting to conditions that are optimal for good health.
Copper is an important nutrient that plays a significant role in the synthesis of hemoglobin, myelin, body pigment melanin, and collagen. It helps protect the myelin sheath of surrounding nerves. It is also actively involved in the production of elastin in the connective tissue.
Copper is essential in the production of red blood cells, Hemoglobin, and bone matter.
Copper is a vital part of the healing process and ensures better wound healing.
CuHorse™ powered by CuTech® allows copper ions to be placed as close to the skin as possible for effectiveness.
"If I added up what I spent on things a year whether its entries, vet bills, board, feed, etc.. why would I go cheap with therapy compared to everything else? PHT, CuHorse, and MagnaCu products are well worth every penny you purchase them for!"
