The types of horses most likely to benefit from joint supplements include horses subject to extreme athletic demand e.g. those used for dressage, show jumping, eventing, endurance, driving and western riding. Also likely to benefit are horses subject to repeated wear and tear e.g. the elderly or those working on poor surfaces.
TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support contains a generous combination of natural sources of glucosamine (10g/500kg horse/day) and MSM (10g/500kg horse/day). Glucosamine is a precursor and component of GAGs, of which hyaluronic acid is a well known example. GAGS are essential constituents of cartilage and synovial fluid.
MSM is a bio-available source of sulphur and helps to maintain optimum function in connective tissues such as tendons, ligaments and muscles. It promotes fluid dispersion at injury sites via its role in the permeability of cell walls.
TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support also contains a blend of anti-oxidants, i.e. vitamins C, E, beta-carotene and natural tocopherols, to combat excess free radicals around the joint.
Ideally TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support should be fed with TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer but it can be fed with any combination of feeds or supplements. The benefits of TopSpec Comprehensive Feed balancer plus the scientifically recommended rate of glucosamine are now combined in TopSpec Joint Feed Balancer.
