Joint Guard Equine Powder 5kg
Most performance horses risk serious damage to joint structures at some time. The use of Jointguard as a low cost daily dietary supplement provides added cartilage protection, & also effectively reduces the likelihood of further cartilage breakdown following the release of destructive enzymes which occurs after trauma to cartilage.
Where existing joint cartilage damage already exists, Jointguard is effective at stimulating cartilage repair.
Jointguard provides all of the essential raw mineral and cofactors necessary for cartilage repair and maintenance. It is formulated specifically for regular, cost-effective low dose and administration.
1.5kg of Jointguard contains 25 days supply at the treatment dose, or 125 days supply at the maintenance dose.
Each 20 g contains:
Glucosamine HCl 1800 mg,
Chondroitin sulfate 600 mg
Also contains: MSM, Manganese gluconate, Calcium ascorbate (Vit C), Zinc, Copper
Research trials show a significant synergy between the components in Jointguard. The effect is both cartilage-protective & mildly anti-inflammatory, serving to both reduce cartilage degeneration and to stimulate production of healthy cartilage matrix.
Glucosamine Hydrochloride - stimulates the formation of of synovial (joint) fluid and the cartliage matrix
Chondroitin Sulphate - provides protection from the enzymes which break down cartilage, and is the major component in cartilage.
Manganese & Vitamin C - are essential in the pathways to manufacture cartilage.
MSM - provides an anti-inflammatory action.
Dose & Administration:
Give Joint Guard at a dose rate of 40 g daily mixed in feed for a regular protective and preventive effect. By using low daily preventive doses from an early stage it is possible to avoid the expense of administering very high doses of product after any injury in an effort to achieve high blood levels rapidly.
In the event of existing cartilage damage where therapy is required, it is recommended that the daily dose of Joint Guard be increased for an initial period of 6 - 8 weeks to ensure rapid availability of all essential raw materials, and rapid response.
In cases where joint injury requires therapy, discuss the use of Pentosan Equine in combination with Joint Guard with your veterinarian. Joint Guard will provide a joint protective effect when used alone as a daily dose, and will also significantly improve therapy of existing joint damage when used in combination with Pentosan Equine injections to further stimulate joint repair.
