The sheer weight of the horse places considerable stress on its joints. Supplementation to support joint health makes sense with further challenges to the joints from difficult surfaces, exercise, imperfect conformation, and poor trimming and shoeing.
Glucosamine is a normal metabolite of glucose formed inside the body's cells. In joints, Glucosamine is converted to Chondroitin Sulfate and to Hyaluran.
Chondroitin Sulfate is a major structural molecule in tissues and gives joint cartilage its elasticity.
Glucosamine, alone and in combination with Chondroitin Sulfate, has been shown to maintain balance in tissue maintenance within joints. There is evidence that the combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin is superior to either alone because of their synergetic properties.
