    I’ve used this for a mare needing lung support and can’t stand being stabled. She is much happier in the stable.

    My horse loves this and eats it straight out of my hand. I got it to support his navicular bone and the sesamoids and collateral ligaments. He has been taking this, and AAKG, for a couple of months now and is feeling better than he has for a long time.

    I got this for two purposes
    One is in Conjunction with MSM and spirulina for my mare’s lungs in relation to dusty hay and it works great to strengthen her.
    Second is for my IR gelding to support blood flow to his feet, again it works beautifully

    I got this to manage joint health in the horse, alongside other things. At the beginning I didn’t notice any difference, but with constant use it seemed to me that the movements were more fluid and the horse more comfortable. I cannot swear this is what made a difference, but it convinced me enough to order it again. Worth a try, also because it seems to have many benefits.
