​Contains 13 Active Nutraceuticals

Nutraceuticals are nutritional substances that provide additional health benefits.  Through the addition of the following nutraceuticals, Joint Aid Plus provides a complementary support for all horses and ponies.

 KB  - For more information see Knowledge Base article: 'The Role of Nutricines in Health...'

1 - Biotin

 

Biotin has been shown by extensive trial work to aid the hardening of hoof horn and so prevent cracking. It is an essential requirement for keratin production in the hoof, laminae and the coronary band and is critical to maintain overall hoof integrity and condition.

2 - Collagen Matrix

 

Collagen possesses great tensile strength and provides the framework that gives tissues their firmness and resilience.  It is essential for connecting and supporting the bones, tendons, muscles and cartilage.

3, 4 & 5 - Copper, Manganese & Vitamin C

 

All three are essential to maintaining the growth of tendons and ligaments, the formation of cartilage and the elasticity of connective tissue. It is very important for the working horse to maintain its freedom of movement and suppleness when in motion.

A complex structure like the hoof of the equine and the pressures it endures will include substantial supportive networks of tissues, as a basis for hoof integrity.

6 - Hemp Oil Derived Omega 3 Fatty Acids

 

Hemp Oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 fatty acids found in the plant world.  This unique combination enables the animal to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils and are crucial for maintaining the natural anti-inflammatory action of the body.

7 - MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)

 

MSM is a source of sulphur, which helps to form cross links with other molecules that maintain the strength and integrity of connective tissues. It is also essential for the manufacture of collagen.

8 - Oligosaccharides

 

Oligosaccharides from yeast cell wall and concentrated oat bran sources that help support natural expulsion of antagonists in the digestive tract and maintain a high level of natural immunity.

9 - Zinc

 

Horses with poor hoof quality have been seen to respond when extra zinc has been added to their diet.  It helps to maintain keratin, which is the fibrous protein that gives the wall of the hoof its hardness. The amount of keratin found in hooves can vary and this determines how tough the wall of the hoof is.

​The Unique Oatinol Delivery System

 KB  - For more information see Knowledge Base article: 'The Oatinol Delivery System'

 

Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies four active nutraceuticals to:

 

  • Maintain gut cell integrity.

  • Maintain the lining of the gut.

  • Support the immune system.

  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

 

10 - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

11 - Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E.  They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

12 - Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.

13 - Phospholipids

Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.
