Kentucky Joint Super Strength Powder
Kentucky Joint Super Strength Powder
Kentucky Joint Super Strength Powder is designed to support and maintain healthy joints, as part of a balanced diet.
Each 35g serve provides powerful joint support for performance horses, supplying:
- Glucosamine HCl 12,000mg - to support cartilage structure.
- Boswellia 1700mg - to support the horse's own anti-inflammatory processes.
- N-acetyl Glucosamine 1100mg - to support healthy cartilage.
- MSM 12,000mg - to promote cartilage elasticity and shock absorption.
- Hyaluronic acid 330mg - to support joint fluid health and elasticity.
- Key bio-available trace elements (from chelates) and vitamins - to support vital enzymes in maintaining joint health.
- BETA NOPS and UFAS accredited, ensuring our products do not contain prohibited substances and are suitable for horses competing under FEI regulations and the Rules of Racing.
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 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 becomes 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.
Ingredients & Nutrition
A complementary feed for horses and ponies, designed to support and maintain healthy joints, as part of a balanced diet.
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 to 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 support the horse's own anti-inflammatory processes.
N-Acetyl D Glucosamine - an additional source of glucosamine that is particularly important in supporting the horse's own anti-inflammatory processes.
Chondroitin Sulphate - is a key compound in maintaining the structure, elasticity and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage, partly through its water-retaining properties.
Boswellia - The Boswellic Acids, in particular, AKBA (Acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid) have been shown to support the horse's own anti-inflammatory processes, helping to maintain performance levels. Boswellia also provides antioxidants and other important phytochemicals to support joint health and comfort.
MSM - promotes a normal inflammatory response to help reduce ongoing damage. It also provides a bio-available source of sulphur to support the bonds in the structural matrix of the cartilage, and the tendons and ligaments.
Hyaluronic Acid - is vital to maintain the viscosity and elastic shock-absorbing properties of joint fluid, and is increasingly recognized as playing a vital role in joint health.
Vitamin C - plays a key role in the production of collagen, which provides the structural framework for the vital shock-absorbing cartilage.
Manganese, Copper and Zinc Glycinates - are a bioavailable source of key trace mineral which plays a key role in many enzymes systems involved in joint health.
Magnesium Sulphate - provides a source of magnesium to support many enzyme systems involved in supporting the musculoskeletal system.
Black Pepper - provides a source of piperine, which is thought to help the absorption of these key ingredients to support joint health.
Kentucky Joint Super Strength Powder contains optimum levels of these key ingredients to provide essential nutritional support for cartilage and to help maintain healthy joint fluid to lubricate and nourish the joint, helping to promote the health and vital shock-absorbing properties in hard-working joints.
Kentucky Joint Super Strength Powder will also help support the horse's own anti-inflammatory processes to help maintain joint and muscle comfort in high-performance horses.
