Glucosamine is a naturally occuring compound found in cartilage and other connective tissues in a horse's body. It is used by the horse to maintain and repair cartilage in its joints. It also plays an important part in controlling the inflammatory processes. As a horse gets older its natural production of glucosamine slows down. Feeding glucosamine can help protect a horse from the consequences of this ageing process. This can slow down the deterioration of the joint and in many cases an improvement in the horse's movement is seen.
