Equine Devil's Claw

Equine Devil's Claw


Devil's Claw is a dried root named after the tiny hooks that cover its fruit. Originally from Africa, this root has been used for centuries to help alleviate many ailments due to it's active ingredient harpogoside. This compound is a potent anti inflammatory, and works in the same pain pathways in the body as conventional NSAIDs. It is an active area of study, as promising results are leading to physicians in Germany and France recommending it to patients for arthritis and back pain.


Devil's Claw in horses has been scientifically proven to support and maintain joint and bone health. It can be provided to horses of all ages to maintain tendon and cartilage health and function, whether dealing with previous injuries or wanting to prevent. Additionally it has been scientifically supported for recovery of both muscles and joints after strenuous training or after competition. 


It is also a great root for mares, to support a healthy reproductive system.


Devil's claw has been studied in horses and has been shown not to be a gastric irritant, even with extended use.
