Our proprietary blend of ground flax seed, fish oil and fenugreek serves as a palatable base for the active joint nutraceutical ingredients. Powders can settle to the bottom of the feed tub and get left behind, and liquids are messy, cumbersome and the active ingredients may not stay in suspension, both of which lead to inaccurate dosing. This blend combines the desirable characteristics of powders and liquids into an easy-to-measure, easy-to-feed, palatable, moist granule. Further, our proprietary blend is a significant source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA and EPA that have anti-inflammatory properties. Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for proper maintenance of healthy plasma membranes and they have been shown to modulate inflammatory reactions in a variety of equine tissues, including joints.

Yeast culture has been scientifically shown to support enhanced digestion and digestive efficiency, particularly the digestibility of important macro- and micro-minerals (Ca, P, Cu, Zn, and Mg), integral to healthy bones and joints.

Glucosamine sulfate is commonly used as an oral supplement for the treatment of osteoarthritis as it is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans (GAG) in joint cartilage. Glucosamine sulfate may help rebuild cartilage and slow degeneration of cartilage.
Chondroitin sulfate is a sulfated GAG that is an important structural component of cartilage providing much of its resistance to compression.

Hyaluronic acid is a non-sulfated GAG widely distributed throughout connective and neural tissue. It is an important component of articular cartilage as it binds water and is responsible for the resilience of cartilage.

Methylsulfonyl methane (MSM) is an organosulfur compound that serves as a supplemental source of sulfur and when used in conjunction with glucosamine and chondroitin has been shown to help prevent osteoarthritis. Also there is evidence suggesting that MSM has anti-inflammatory effects in osteoarthritic joints.

Glycine is the smallest of the 20 amino acids commonly found in proteins. Due to its unique non-chiral structure, it makes up approximately 35% of collagen, the most abundant protein in mammals. Collagen is integral to the structural integrity, growth and development of bones and joints.
