How it works:
Glucosamine supports the production of new cartilage, which acts as a cushion between joints.
Chondroitin sulfate stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid and proteoglycans, which are integral components of your horse’s joints. In addition, it inhibits the enzymes that break down cartilage.
Hyaluronic acid is an integral component of joint fluid and articular cartilage that provides both lubrication and shock absorption.
MSM is a bioavailable form of sulfur for building and repairing cartilage, and supporting a normal response to the inflammation associated with exercise and activity.
Herbs like devil’s claw, yucca, and boswellia are used to fight discomfort in joints and other tissues, along with supporting a normal inflammatory response.
Why it matters:
Every horse’s joints are under stress. Your horse’s body has a limited ability to repair and rebuild the minimal “wear and tear” to joints that comes with being a horse in its natural state, and research has shown that even wild mustangs can develop joint deterioration. When you add in the increased demands of riding and training, it’s easy to see how your horse’s joints may be experiencing more damage than his body can keep up with. Luckily, there are ingredients that can help by ensuring that your horse always has a steady supply of the ingredients he needs to cope with the stress of exercise and maintain healthy joints.
