Chondroitin sulphate for horses is useful not only for helping the health of cartilage in the body but also for maintaining healthy skin and providing excellent nutritional support where rubbing of manes and tails is seen.
Chondroitin sulphate is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) – also known as a mucopolysaccharide – a type of compound that binds to collagen and elastin in the formation of cartilage.
Chondroitin sulphate is a biological polymer derived from connective tissue and supports cartilage production. It is very effective at sustaining the joint and vertebrae health of older horses where nutritional support is needed for normal cartilage health.
Chondroitin is present in the lining of the horse digestive tract, blood vessels, mucus membranes and arteries and helps promote normal blood flow throughout the body.
The nutritional benefits of chondroitin sulphate are complimented when used in conjunction with spirulina to nutritionally support healthy skin and help maintain normal immune system response to challenges from fly and midge bites.
