THE FACTS ON JOINT CARE

We all want the best for our horses but it does get confusing when there is so much spin published on joint care ingredients. 

Q: Is the molecular weight of Chondroitin Sulphate really important?

A: Absolutely.  Low grade Chondroitin, often just powdered cartilage, has a larger molecular structure and a higher molecular weight and therefore is not as bioavailable through intestinal absorption. 
Shark Net delivers 4,000 mg pharmaceutical grade bioavailable Chondroitin per treating dose.

Q: Glucosamine Sulphate or Glucosamine HCL, which is best?

A: Studies suggest Glucosamine Sulphate is more readily absorbed but again it’s the quality that counts not the source.  What is most important is the actual amount of Glucosamine delivered in a dose.                                                           Shark Net delivers the recommended 10,000 mg pharmaceutical grade bioavailable Glucosamine Sulphate per treating dose.

Q: What is MSM & why is it so important?

A: MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)  is a bioavailable form of sulphur, a vital component of collagen.  Included at sufficient levels, MSM not only supports the active ingredients, it hs wider physiological benefits to the animal as a whole. It is widely claimed to have natural anti-inflamaitory and ciurculation boosting properties and to be effective in treating and preventing epifisitis in growing horses.
Shark Net delivers 16,000 mg of MSM per treating dose.

Q: What else should a good oral joint treatment have in it?

A: The other essential ingredients of any good joint care formula are Manganese, a required cofactor for enzymes involved in cartilage metabolism, and Ascorbic Acid, a component of hydroxyproline, an amino acid that plays a key role in collagen stability.                                                        Shark Net delivers both at the level required to insure that all essential nutrients for articular cartilage and synovial fluid production are in sufficient concentrations.
