The health of bones, joints, tendons and ligaments is essential to equine performance and overall health. Optimizing nutrition is an important step in maintaining and supporting skeletal health at all ages.
- Vitamins D and K are important for the deposition of Calcium in bone.
- Vitamin C plays an important role as an antioxidant to protect connective tissue, including tendons and ligaments, from the damaging effect of free radicals. Is also an essential element for the formation of tendon, ligament, bone scaffolding and joint cartilage.
- High quality protein, such as whey in combination with specific amino acids, support the production of connective tissue, which forms the framework of bone, joint cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. These amino acids include Lysine, Proline, Isoleucine, Alanine, and Glycine, as well as Hydrolyzed Collagen.
- MSM, Yucca, and the enzyme SOD – Superoxide Dismutase provide protection from the damaging effect of free radicals on joint tissue.
- Silica supports bone and joint health. Other minerals important to bone, joint and connective tissue health include Boron, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Strontium, and Calcium.
- Joint cartilage and joint fluid are supported with the structural components Chondroitin Sulfate, Hyaluronic Acid, and Glucosamine Hydrochloride.
