In healthy conditions glucosamine is synthesised by chondrocytes (cartilage cells), aided by the enzyme glucosamine-synthetase. In the ageing horse this enzyme seems to be having a diminished activity, causing the production of glucosamine to be diminished as well. Supplying glucosamine orally then is required to help keep joints supple.

Also, in the event of a starting osteoarthritis caused by inflammatory mediators, the glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans are broken down, causing damage to the cartilage. This proces can become a vicious cycle and needs to be interrupted to stop worse from happening. Rest, anti-inflammatory medication and suppletion of recourses are then necessary.

Glucosamine is the substrate for the formation of glycosaminoglycans (GAG´s) and proteoglycans (like chondroitin sulphate en Hyaluronic acid, so called PSAG´s).

(Often comparable products of our con-colleagues have added chondroitin to their glucosamine concoctions. We have not added chondroitin to our product because a plant based form of chondroitin is not available. Chondroitin is usually made from cartilage received from chickens and/or pigs from the animal feed sector and therefore is not suitable for use in horses.)
