Several Components Of Equine Inflammation Management Supplements

By Anthony Johnson

People domesticated horses to help them in various things such as work, transportation, sports and even warfare during the older times. They have different behavior, locomotion, breeds, markings, colors, sizes and life stages with a specialized vocabulary in describing them. Young ones could walk when they were born usually and trained starting at two or four years old.

Because of their several uses in many fields, their body could become weaker due to old age and may develop illness. This is the reason that equine inflammation management supplements are needed to help in keeping longer their good condition. These nutraceuticals have various ingredients contained in them in varying amounts that makes their effectiveness different with each horse.

Studies were done for these ingredients for numerous years now to know more about how the horses are really affected by them. This would help people understand which supplements are capable in helping your animals better because their labels may read something not in them. The following are a few components these nutraceuticals have in common.

Intensive studies have been done for glucosamine compared with other joint supplement ingredients because of them being the basic building blocks of every connective tissue. Some products may extract them from a natural source like the sternum or trachea of catle. Others get hydrolyzed collagen from other sources like skins, ligaments and tendons.

tGlucosamine is effective to relive pain and usually after a short time of ten days to fourteen and could encourage healing and would slow cartilage. Each day, a dosage of six thousand until ten thousand milligram is needed, with the latter amount suitable for working horses best. During the first or second week of treatment, higher level is recommended in giving them this substance for a therapeutic level.

Components work best when combined specially if their suggested therapeutic dose has been followed for each ingredient. Chondroitin and glucosamine combined is an example that together works better rather than separately taken. Vitamin C for healthy joints is essential although too much is harmful and zinc and copper are antioxidants which can help as well.

Chondroitin is a structural component of tough connective tissues, bone and cartilage with its effects not very obvious compared to glucosamine. Observers report though that horses appear to move fluidly when they have taken this. Formal studies have mixed results about them with the prevention of further breakdown in cartilage found as its greatest benefit.

Combining both chondroitin and glucosamine shows superior results when they compared it with separately using them. Many supplements though have combined them but their dosage, compared to separately taking them, are lower than what is required. These products are claiming that lowering the dosage will have the same effects still when combining them although no study has proven it.

Some products combining these ingredients, though not all, are effective actually although not studies can show the reason why. The best thing that you could do is finding supplements containing a full glucosamine dose with a chondroitin closer to its proper dosage. There are some other ingredients but these are the major ones for now.
