Equine Joint + Muscle
Ingredients: Green Lipped Mussel, MSM
Green Lipped Mussel
Green Lipped Mussel is a sustainably sourced mussel from New Zealand. It is a natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, aiding in ligament and tissue health. It improves flexion and joint comfort.
Studies directly in the equine industry are very limited - but luckily there has been a study done on green lipped mussel in hoses with chronic joint lameness. Send us a message for a link to this article, but they concluded that horses supplemented with GLM "showed a significant reduction in severity of lameness, improved response to the joint flexion test, and reduced joint pain..." (Cayzer, Hedderley, and Gray).
Green Lipped Mussels (GLM) have also been used for centuries for their potent nutrients and minerals. GLM contains nutrients such as omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc, copper, iodine, and manganese, amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants, as well as the natural forms of glucosamine and chondroitin.
GLM provides your horse with 3 forms of omega 3 fatty acids - EPA, DHA, and ETA. ETA is a rare form of omega 3 fatty acids which lowers an enzyme that causes inflammation. This results in increased mobility for your horse through less pain and inflammation.
TriSana Nutrition MSM is a potent natural anti-inflammatory and painkilling product. This versatile supplement is a powerful product to ease any sort of inflammatory condition in the body - from allergies to arthritis to respiratory issues.
MSM provides the sulfur required by your horse for many daily processes. It is used to form a molecule called cysteine, as well as being needed for methionine synthesis. The body uses a methionine derivative to combat many ailments, such as pain, inflammation, allergies, arthritis. TriSana Nutrition MSM is a natural pain killer- it actually blocks the pain impulses through nerve fibers as well as boosting the activity of natural anti-inflammatory hormones. This methionine derivative is also used to promote normal keratin levels in hair, skin, and hooves!
MSM additionally improves joint and muscle health, by playing an active role in the production of collagen and glucosamine, both of which are required for optimum mobility.
MSM can also help increase the uptake and longevity of many different minerals, vitamins, and nutrients, such as Vitamin A, D, E, and C, all B-vitamins, magnesium and many others. While increasing cell membrane permeability to allow easier uptake of these minerals, it also increases a cells ability to detox waste products.
Since MSM is such a potent anti-inflammatory, it also helps the body boost the immune system. TriSana Nutrition MSM binds to mucosa and provides a protective layer against allergens. It helps to bind and inactivate harmful free radicals in the body, and get rid of those harmful irritants. This is an effective way to deal with allergies and sensitivities, as well as hives and sweet itch.
MSM is one of the few anti-oxidants that are able to cross the blood-brain barrier - meaning it has access to a few areas in the body that not many other supplements are able to reach. Due to this, MSM is able to help clean out, repair, and prevent damage to nerve cells to assist with neurological diseases.
Metabolic or insulin resistant horses may also benefit from MSM supplementation, as sulfur is a component of insulin. By providing adequate nutritional sources of sulfur, biologically appropriate levels of active insulin can be produced, helping to achieve proper metabolism.
Newer research is also showing MSM as a potential supplement to help slow or limit the growth of cancerous tumours.
Together these two work synergistically to boost your horses' all-around health and comfort, while building up resistance for potential disease.
These two pure ingredients have been scientifically proven to:
- Maintain muscle health and condition
- Maintain a healthy immune system
- Maintain healthy joints and mobility
TriSana Nutrition Equine Joint and Muscle is recommended for all horses in training or competition. It is an excellent joint care preventative for recovery and health, as well as a great choice to help mitigate symptoms of inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.
Green Lipped Mussel is also offered as a separate product.
