Used before a race, Vita Oil limbers up the muscles, and induces circulation, giving ease and freedom of action. Between heats it prevents soreness and stiffness from tension and strain, restoring the muscles to their original state of suppleness and elasticity. After a race it prevents stiffness of muscles, shoulder lameness, soreness of tendons and cording up over the loins. There are several advantages to using Vita Oil. It has no alcohol or acetone or other quickly evaporative substances that can dry skin, but instead contains a combination of all natural oils and spices that remain moist and active for hours. The use of Vita Oil produces little or no scurfing.
