    I got this for two purposes
    One is in Conjunction with MSM and spirulina for my mare with coughs in relation to dusty hay and it works great to strengthen lungs
    Second is for my gelding with chronic laminitis to improve blood flow to his feet, again it works beautifully

    I got this to manage arthritis 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 confortable. 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.
