Glucosamine is a key factor in stimulating bone cells to produce more collagen, proteoglycans, and chondroitin sulfate. This is the process the body uses to rebuild cartilage. If cartilage metabolism is supported, the reversing of cartilage damage and joint pain often occur.
Results Based Guarantee: This is NOT a 30-day money back guarantee. Since nutrition cannot solve problems within a month, why waste your money on a product that has a guarantee for only 30 days? Our guarantee covers the initial treatment period, usually 6 to 24 weeks, depending on the problem. (For serious problems, please call MD"s Choice for the most effective dosing.) You WILL see results or get a full refund for the containers you purchased (limit 3 containers). No formal testing is required for reimbursement. Now that"s a results based guarantee.
The ONLY joint and connective tissue supplement on the market that GUARANTEES that horses suffering from Navicular Syndrome, arthritis, spavin, joint injuries and other joint related problems will be returned to a sound condition! Used by professionals and competitors around the world for prevention, maintenance, therapy and treatment of foals through geriatric. Developed and formulated by doctors to provide the key nutrients required for total joint and connective tissue health. It helps to repair and maintain cartilage, joints and joint fluid to reduce pain in active horses, as well as for use in young, fast-growing horses to avoid joint problems during growth and later in life.
Contains human grade ingredients, including 4,668 mg glucosamine sulfate 2KCl per serving. This nutrient not only helps build and maintain joint fluid and hyaline cartilage, but has shown to return horses suffering from spavin and even navicular disease to normal function. Also contains 2,336 mg MSM, 1,000 mg sodium ascorbate, and 32 gm manganese per serving.
Glucosamine Sulfate 2KCL is the basic building block of all cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and joint fluid, and is vital for joint health. It is the highest quality and most bio-available form of Glucosamine available. Gluquestrian does not use Glucosamine HCl because HCl must be exchanged in the body with a sulfate molecule before the Glucosamine can be used in joints. We use the sulfated form to begin with to ensure maximum benefits.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) supplies biologically active sulfur which is required to build joint cartilage and connective tissues (such as tendons and ligaments). It is also important in the organs, skin, coat and hooves.
Manganese has been found to be essential in the formulation of skeletal cartilage and is required in the chemical processes that use Glucosamine.
Ascorbate is used in this product for ingredient stability and product shelf life. Horses naturally manufacture their own Vitamin C.
Gluquestrian does not contain Chondroitin Sulfate (which is extracted from animal by-products and is too large to go directly into a joint to be used). Studies have shown that up to 90% of Glucosamine Sulfate is absorbed when taken orally, while other studies show Chondroitin Sulfate is only absorbed to about 30%.
