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?
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?
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?
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?
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
