What does Hyaluronic Acid do for horses?
Hyaluronic Acid is a vital component of synovial fluid. It acts as a lubricant and absorbs shock within the joint. A swollen joint means, the synovial membrane can only produce a small supply of hyonate. As a result this dilutes the quality of the joint fluid.
What does MSM do for horses?
MSM or Methylsulphonylmethane is a bio available source of sulphur. MSM is important for aiding in the repairing of sulphur containing bonds, such as collagen. Thought to have anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore means this can be beneficial when a horse is recovering from injury.
