Why use Suplijoint?

The Action of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Suplijoint is based on cooked whole linseed, nature's richest source of Linolenic acid. The digestive system breaks this down into the EPA and DHA

Omega-3 fatty acids as found in fish oils. These essential fatty acids are well known for their nutritional benefits to joint health, helping to ease movement and aid the circulation, thus allowing the synovial fluid (joint oil) to flow freely over the joints working surfaces. Other obvious benefits are a healthy skin and coat.

Joint Lubrication

Glucosamine is an amino sugar used to build tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial fluid (joint oil). It stimulates production of GAG's (glucosaminoglycans) in synovial fluid to enhance lubrication. In addition to being a lubricant this fluid acts as a shock absorber cushioning the joint during exercise. Synovial fluid tends to become thinner with old age and wear and tear and thus loses some of its lubricating properties.

Glucosamine is a soluble natural product obtained from crustacean shells.

After being consumed it is absorbed through the wall of the intestine into the body. It is then attracted to the joint cells where it provides the raw material to build up synovial fluid.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is one of the most important glycosaminoglycans (GAG's) playing a crucial role in the cushioning and lubrication of joints by increasing the viscosity of synovial fluid. It has been used for many years in injectable form, but is now also available as an oral supplement.

Cartilage wear and tear

Most bones end in cartilage, a plastic like material which lines the joints preventing bone grating against bone. If this lining wears out the joint becomes stiff and creaky. Chondroitin is chemically similar to glucosamine and is a constituent of cartilage. Chondroitin sulphate works in synergy with glucosamine to maintain a sound cartilage coating.

Healthy Connective Tissue

MSM is a naturally occurring form of organic sulphur vital for the building of joints, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It therefore plays an important role supporting glucosamine and chondroitin in the maintenance of healthy joints. Lysine and Methionine are two sulphur based amino acids which have been added to support the bodies natural production of MSM.

Antioxidants

Vitamins E and C nutritionally support the immune system by neutralising free radicals. Vitamin C, like MSM, is very important for maintaining joint tissues and is known to play a major role in making collagen.

Feeding Guidelines (Based on 500KG horse)

Feed 50g (3 heaped measures) for the first 15 days. This provides 10,000mg of Glucosamine hydrochloride and 4,000mg Chondroitin sulphate. After 15 days and for continuous maintenance feed one heaped measure per day to provide 3,333mg Glucosamine hydrochloride and 1,333mg of Chondroitin sulphate.
1Kg container gives 60 days supply at maintenance level.

N.B. Glucosamine and Chondroitin levels are often not declared. Chondroitin in particular is very expensive. Always compare analyses when checking prices.
