Amino-Joint Plus is a specific formulation of amino acids and sugars which supply the equine body with the necessary components to significantly reduce joint pain and repair joint damage.
Will Vitamin Deficiencies Affect Performance?
The combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulphate may be more effective in preventing or treating osteoarthritis in horses than either product alone . Glucosamine energizes the process of forming synovial (joint) fluid and cartilage matrix synthesis. Chondroitin is the most important component which is naturally found in cartilage. Chondroitin Sulphate protects the cartilage from the enzymes which attempt to break it down.
Amino Complex assists in the production of chondrocyte protein synthesis. The ability of equine chondrocytes to mount a robust stress response may be important in the processes of tissue damage and recovery in articular joints of horses .
Collagen naturally exists in the cartilage in large quantities. Although glucosamine and chondroitin treated group showed significant (P < 0.05) reduction in pain compared with pretreated values, the efficacy was less compared with that observed with collagen. In fact, collagen was found to be more effective than glucosamine and chondroitin in arthritic horses . The study also suggest is well tolerated .
MSM is found during the process of connective tissue synthesis which takes place in the joint capsule.
