Glucosamine is an important and effective agent in helping to support healthy joints. Glucosamine is vital for cartilage metabolism and for the renewal of connective tissue in and around the joints. It is required for the formation of synovial fluid, the joints’ natural lubricant, and provides the building blocks needed for damage caused by wear and tear and the natural ageing process.
Organic MSM (Methyl-sulphonyl-methane)
Dynamic takes advantage of the powerful synergy between glucosamine and MSM. Our organic, bio-available MSM provides the building blocks for protein, vital for tendon and ligament health. Proteins are a key component in cartilage formation and can aid muscle recovery and promote circulation.
Evening primrose, linseed and soya: Evening primrose oil and soya oils are the best sources of omega 6 for horses. Omega 6 is required to form prostaglandins, which aid a horse’s reaction to injury. Linseed oil is the best vegetable sources of omega 3– perfect for a herbivorous horse’s digestive system. Both omega 3 and omega 6 oils lubricate joints ensuring maximum mobility.
Antioxidants and bioflavenoids
Vitamins C and E are essential vitamins with strong antioxidant properties. The two act synergistically with enzymes such as peroxidase to naturally ‘mop-up’ free radicals. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in the formation of collagen, an important protein in joints. Selenium is a key antioxidant that helps the immune response within the joint and the maintenance of joint tissues. Mint helps to support joints that may be compromised due to wear and tear. Grapeseed extract aids the immune response of joints and maximises joint flexibility.
Dynamic’s herbal formula includes yucca, a rich source of saponins, which help to nourish joints. Yucca has been used for decades by Native Americans to look after their horses’ joints. The yucca used in Dynamic is specially grown from a sustainable source.
Horses in need of a joint supplement often need a bone supplement. Dynamic includes: organic manganese – essential for bone formation, calcium and phosphorus – correctly balanced to ensure strong, dense bone (14% of bone is made of phosphorus) and silicon, a vital ingredient that helps with the utilisation of calcium and is often missing from processed horse feeds.
