10:10 Joint Support

TopSpec - 10:10 Joint Support

A nutritional support system to promote the comfort zone in and around synovial joints.

The types of horses most likely to benefit include:

Horses subject to extreme athletic demand e.g. those used for dressage, show jumping, eventing, endurance, driving and western riding.

Horses subject to repeated wear and tear e.g. the elderly or those working on poor surfaces.

Owners of valuable bloodstock may also consider it a wise insurance to offer additional joint support to breeding and growing animals.

TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support contains a generous combination of natural sources of Glucosamine (10g/500kg horse/day)and MSN (10g/500kg horse/day).

Glucosamine is a component of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are essential constituents of cartilage and synovial fluid. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a well-known GAG that plays an important role in maintaining the viscosity of joint fluid. This thick fluid acts as a lubricant for joint surfaces and together with cartilage provides most of the shock-absorption to minimise the concussive forces travelling up the limbs. Glucosamine is also an important precursor of chondroitin, a constituent of cartilage. Ample glucosamine is produced in healthy joints but damaged joints produce less. MSM is a bio-available source of sulphur and helps to maintain optimum function in connective tissues such as tendons, ligaments and muscles. It promotes fluid dispersion at injury sites via its role in the permeability of cell walls. Sulphur is needed for the production of collagen, which is an important component of cartilage. It is common for insufficient healthy cartilage to be made when joint function is compromised.

TopSpec Joint Support also contains a blend of anti-oxidants.

Vitamins C, E, beta-carotene and natural tocopherols are included to combat excess free radicals around the joint. Ideally TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support should be fed with a TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer or a TopSpec supplement. It can be fed with any other straights, blends or compound feeds.

TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support is supplied in 1.5kg tubs which last a 500kg horse for one month at the full recommended rate but will last two months for certain horses at a maintenance rate.
