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.

Sweet Itch 2500mg to 5000mg per 225kg of body weight twice per day
