  1. Vroni (verified owner)

    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.

  2. Mariablumenthal (verified owner)

    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

  3. hrbacchini (verified owner)

    Quality product, I have used for delivering nitric oxide for supporting vital hoof ligaments and hoof growth, used for great lung health as well.

  4. Kate B (verified owner)

    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.

  5. hrbacchini (verified owner)

    Quality product, I have used for delivering nitric oxide for rehabbing injuries and hoof growth, used for coughing as well.

  6. Kelly Elliott (verified owner)

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

  7. Kelly Elliott

    I’ve used this for a mare that coughs and can’t stand being stabled. It’s significantly reduced her coughing and she is much happier in the stable.

  8. Carrie Place

    I’ve been using this for over two months now & notice a difference in my donkey. Her feet are growing well, helping with healthy hoof growth. I’m hoping internally with the correct diet & trim, her foot structure is getting a good supply to improve strength & healing. She certainly gives the impression with confident steps using her hoof well. It also helps her mood I think.
