Description

Joint disease especially wear and tear of the cartilage which covers the articular surfaces of bones within the joint is one of the most common causes of reduced performance and ultimately lameness in performance horses.

In a healthy joint, cartilage is continuously undergoing repair to micro-damage, but as cartilage doesn’t have its own blood supply, it relies on the bone underneath and the synovial or joint fluid bathing the joint to supply nutrients and key compounds to complete these repairs. As the horse ages, or the daily impact of training and competition increase, the ability of the underlying bone and synovial fluid to provide these nutrients may not be enough to keep up the rate of repair needed, and damage, with the resulting pain, loss of performance and eventually  lameness become evident.

So it is vital that high performance horses receive a dietary supply of these key nutrients to maintain the rate of repair, to ensure the cartilage and joint fluid retain their  elasticity and shock-absorbing properties to help maintain peak performance.

 

What are the benefits of Glucosamine 12 : 10 Plus?

Glucosamine is one of the key compounds in supporting joint health, and has 3 important roles:

  • To stimulate the production of proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which help produce the strong, elastic, shock absorbing properties of the collagen matrix in the cartilage.
  • To help reduce the degradation of cartilage.
  • It has antioxidant properties and helps promote a normal inflammatory response.

MSM  helps to promote a normal inflammatory response to help reduce on-going damage. It also provides a bio-available source of sulphur to support and help strengthen the bonds in the structural matrix of the cartilage.

Green Lipped Mussel  is a natural source of chondroitin, a key compound in maintaining the structure, elasticity and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage, partly through its water-retaining properties. Our Green Lipped Mussel is sourced from sustainable stocks in the Malborough Sound region of New Zealand.

Hyaluronic Acid  is important in maintaining the viscosity and elastic shock absorbing properties of joint fluid, and is increasing recognized as playing a vital role in joint health.

Manganese Glycinate is a very bioavailable source of manganese

Glucosamine 12:10  Plus provides these key ingredients to provide nutritional support for cartilage repair and to help maintain healthy joint fluid to lubricate and nourish the joint, maintaining the vital shock-absorbing properties in hard working joints. Glucosamine 12 : 10 Plus will also help maintain a normal inflammatory response and joint comfort in high performance horses.
