In this article I would like to spill the beans and share with you what every single horse owner should know about equine joint supplements. I have been working in the equine industry for little over two years now and I have learned quite a bit about what happens behind the curtains in the equine supplements industry.
In this article I would like to share with you some really important information about joint supplements. More specifically I would like to share with you a list of three ingredients that you should look for in an equine joint supplement if you want to make sure that your horse’s joints get all of the essential materials that will strengthen and support your horse’s joints.
Glucosamine HCL is proven and tested by time and it is probably the single most important agent when it comes to supporting healthy joints. Research has shown that Glucosamine HCL plays a particularly important role in the renewal of connective tissue in and around the joints.
Glucosamine HCL works in perfect synergy with organic MSM, methyl-sulphonyl-methane. While Glucosamine HCL aids in the renewal of connective tissue in and around the joint, MSM provides the building materials, proteins, which are vital for tendon and ligament repair.
It is really important to make sure that your horse’s joints contain healthy amounts of synovial fluid which is horse’s natural joint lubricant. HLA is a major component of synovial fluid and is necessary to maintain the viscosity of it. You want to make sure that there is plenty of synovial fluid around your horse’s joints to make sure that the bones don’t grind against each other.
Now, when it comes to joint supplements it is also important to point out that there is very little concrete scientific evidence to support the claims made by companies making joint supplements for horses, but this does not mean that such products are useless.
The fact is that such products have been around for decades and millions of horse owners worldwide have used them with great success to strengthen and support their horse’s joints.
If you want to minimise the risk of joint disease, if you want to make sure that your horse does not suffer from mobility problems, if you want to make sure that your horse stays healthy and active then you should start supplementing your horse’s diet with products that contain active ingredients that I have just shared with you.
