BETTALife® PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA, a new benchmark in British Equine Nutrition

BETTALife® products are developed and produced exclusively in the UK and batch tested for purity, ensuring that only components that are of significant benefit are included. This guarantees that you are not paying extra cost for unnecessary ingredients. You can also be safe in the knowledge that our products are provided with highest grade levels of active ingredients ensuring maximum impact and the best possible care for your horse’s joints.

Joints and Soundness

There are countless different commercially available products all claiming to have amazing abilities to resolve your horse’s problems. There is also a minefield of information so to assess the benefits it is worth looking at each component individually to fully understand which components are necessary. Of the oral products marketed there are really only a few research proven compounds (Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, & HA) that can be completely justified for use in maintenance of healthy joints.

It is a mistake to assume that a product which contains more component compounds is better. Although many commercial products do contain additional compounds this is usually to the detriment of Glucosamine and Chondroitin levels. Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM are virtually completely absent from a horse’s ‘normal’ diet, thus making them an important addition to an already balanced diet.

Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl) 11,000mg

Glucosamine is by far and away the most studied ingredient when it comes to joint care and studies suggest results are superior when combined with Chondroitin. Most Joint supplements for horses contain the cheaper Glucosamine Sulphate, with PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA we have used 2 varieties which are of the highest quality, Glucosamine Hydrochloride and N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine.

Glucosamine (HCL) is an amino sugar used as a building block to form tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and synovial fluid (joint lubrication). It gives cartilage its strength, structure and shock absorbing qualities.

Glucosamine is a natural substance whose effectiveness has been demonstrated in countless scientific studies. It has been said to be superior to conventional choices as it does not merely mask issues but instead works on a cellular level to target the origin and actual cause of the problem.

N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine (D-GlcNAc) 1,000mg

There is growing evidence to support N-Acetyl-D-glucosamine as having anti-inflammatory properties, essential in treating joint problems. N-Acetyl-D-glucosamine is a derivitised glucose monomer found in polymers of bacterial cell walls, chitin, hyaluronic acids and various glycans which can also help repair cells.

MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) 12,000mg

MSM is a natural form of bio available sulphur essential for the health and elasticity of tendons, ligaments, and muscles. The sulphur found within MSM is needed for the proper repair and maintenance of collagen, such as that found within the connective tissue of healthy joints. It also helps to maintain the natural anti-inflammatory actions of the metabolism.

Chondroitin Sulphate 4800mg

Chondroitin is a natural source of essential amino acids that the body needs for cartilage synthesis and inhibiting the enzymes that destroy cartilage molecules, thereby promoting cellular nourishment. This facilitates the creation of watery spaces within cartilage, giving it back its elasticity. By restoring fluid to the cartilage, Chondroitin supports the repairing action of Glucosamine, working at a cellular level to alleviate the actual cause of joint discomfort and stiffness.

Vitamin C (As L-Ascorbic Acid) 500mg

Vitamin C is for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth. It also helps the body absorb iron from nonheme sources.

HA (Hyaluronic Acid) 300mg

Ha is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG), which is a substance that attaches to collagen and elastin to form cartilage. HA not only helps keep the cartilage that cushions joints strong and flexible, but also helps increase supplies of joint-lubricating synovial fluid. Each of these compounds is a synergist, which means that when administered together they help each others effects, providing a more powerful joint supplement.

Magnesium Sulphate (Mg) 200mg

Magnesium plays a number of important roles in your horse’s body. In his muscles, it attaches to ATP (adenosine triphosphate. basically its ‘energy currency’ in the body, formed by respiration) so that the ATP can be used by the muscle cells. If the Magnesium is not present, the ATP cannot be used and the muscle would not be able to generate energy to carry out any functions. It also plays roles in your horse’s blood, as well as acting as an activator for many enzymes throughout the body. It is necessary for many of the enzymes that work with ATP.

Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate 100mg

Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate is involved in a number of body enzyme functions. It is important for healing

Copper Chelate 50mg

Copper is an essential trace mineral. All tissues of the body need it for normal metabolic functions. It is excellent for reducing inflammations, strengthening connective tissue, restoring hair colour and the oxidative energy metabolism as well as fighting parasites and it may even improve brain and liver functions.

Bioperine (Piperine) 50mg

What levels should joint components be fed at in order to be effective?

In order for your joint supplement to be fully effective it is vital that you feed your horse with the correct help. The body of scientific literature indicates that most effective treatment is given by a product that provides adequately high levels of the active compounds per kg of body weight.
Research shows a 600Kg horse, should be administered a daily level of
10,000mg+ Glucosamine
10,000mg+ MSM
4000mg+ Chondroitin
100mg+ Hyaluronic Acid

Levels that are substantially lower than this will give reduced benefits, and minimal levels are likely to be completely ineffective especially in horses that are competing or working hard.

Why should your horse take BETTALife® PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA?

The most common cause of problems in horses according to vets and equine specialists, is joint discomfort. Any form of exercise, especially over a prolonged period, causes micro-damage to muscle and bone. For the horse, a heavy work load or competition is essentially traumatic and physiologically unnatural, causing joint damage.
Specialisation in a particular discipline causes the same muscles & joints to be used repeatedly, causing damage beyond natural repair (similar to repetitive strain syndrome in humans).

Advancing age, as well as exercise, can lead to a breakdown in the natural regeneration process, where damage starts to outweigh repair, resulting in joint discomfort, stiffness, and other joint problems. By feeding a joint supplement you are helping to rebalance this process allowing your horse to stay more comfortable for longer and helping to maintain healthy joints long term.

For your horse to be able to perform to his full potential it is vital that his joints are given the best possible care. The most effective way to do this is by feeding a joint supplement that boosts the natural joint repairing substances in the body. BETTALife® products are the British Nutrition specialists solution to long term joint health – we make no extravagant claims. Your horse’s health and working career is paramount which is why BETTALife® products have been formulated with this as their utmost priority.

How long does it take for my joint supplement to work

This varies from horse to horse and is also affected by your horse’s situation. In most horses, if fed at the correct levels, the effect of BETTALife® PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA will be noticed after about 7 – 10 days of administration but benefits are usually seen even earlier than this. You will notice your horse becoming happier and a little easier in doing what he has always done, the hard working youngster or competition horse becoming less likely to damage or degrade his weight bearing joints and the horse who has had arthroscopic surgery is likely to see a fuller recovery in a shorter timescale.

  1. Mari Akhurst

    Both my horses are currently on it; they have always been on a joint supplement and are doing better than ever on Pharma Quin. Bear is 7 and Sky is 17 and definitely doesn’t look or act 17 thanks to this super supplement.
    I would definitely recommend this supplement to anyone, why not give it a try! It won’t be long before the benefits start coming!

  2. Jade Clark

    Most amazing joint supplement, our dressage horses have gone from winning one national title in the last 4 years to winning 4 national titles in one season! The horses thrive on it! Always a quick delivery too!

  3. Amanda Stoddart-West

    Helped our 17 year old TB no end – highly recommend this product to anyone

  4. Becky Vale

    My trainer suggested I try this product. I currently have two Advanced dressage horses on the joint supplement. One is 17 and the other is in rehab after an operation. Both horses are doing very well, especially the horse who is in rehab, within days she was visibly looser and she went from looking a bit stiff at the start of the session, to looking her old awesome self straight from the stable. This is the first joint supplement I have tried that actually shows a noticeable improvement.

    Review from Sarah Mangham on Facebook

    I saw this product at countryside love me at the time was having a complete meltdown as my veteran was very lame. She has always been on a joint supplement since she was about 7. I enquired with the guys on the trade stand and was informed about the product and they talked me through the differences between this product and the one I was currently using. Price not too much difference really but would it help my princess pony in her retirement?? Yes they had to give their sales pitch but the thing for me was they offered me a money back guarantee. They must have faith in their product for them to do this. They said I could use the whole tub and if I want happy I could still have my money back. Well bettalife you can keep my money as my little veteran was sound within a week and the only change to her life was swapping her old supplement for this one!! I ordered my new tub a few days ago and it’s already been delivered and I got a phone call from the guys to say it has been dispatched. Not an email or a text a phone call!!

  6. Emma Widdowson

    The joint supplement is fantastic,after trying all sorts on the market my horse, who has had previous problems with stifles and other joint issues, is like a different person after just a couple of weeks on pharmaquin.She is starting to pick up the correct lead in canter on the left rein (something we have struggled with for years) and her saddle has stopped slipping. Her jumping also seems to of improved,Will definately be reordering another pot!

  7. Crystal Chapman-Smith

    I absolutely love your product. I researched joint supplements and saw lots of great feedback about your product so I gave it a go. My veteran who is 19 and has hock arthritis has been on this 6 weeks now and I am noticing a huge difference. He feels and looks fab. Thank you so much x

  8. Becky Laycock

    Just bought my second tub.my 18 year old arthritic cob seems much more comfortable now on this and moves much better with less stiffness.I’ve even started to gently lunge him,which I haven’t done for a few years!would definitely recommend trying this especially with money back guarantee which I WON’T be asking for!

  9. Ashleigh Jones

    I use Pharmaquin to help prevent any joint issues with my horse, and was reassured by the quantities of the active ingredients in Pharmaquin. When compared to other supplements on the market, many of which contain nasty unwanted fillers, Pharmaquin is an obvious and easy choice.

    Competing Internationally, I have to be confident that anything my horse has is FEI legal, in order to comply with clean sport policy. Prince has gone from strength to strength over the past 12 months, without any issues as we have pushed his level of training up several gears, so we are delighted with the results.

  10. Yvonne James

    Not only is this joint supplement an outstanding product delivering results up and down the country, but the owners of the company also work really hard to support so many up and coming riders across the country, no wonder you were nominated business of the year. Thank you for all that you do XX

  11. Kylie Vaud

    This product is definitely the best joint supplement I’ve ever come across! I recommend this to anyone, way better than other joint supplements by far! My horse has improved so much since using this and I’ll be sticking with this joint supplement.

  13. Anne johnson

    Hi I’m writing to just say how impressed I am with pharmaquin. My 8 yr old cob is stiff and needs suppling work (dressage)but after the 1st tub he’s finding work easy and allowing me to askfor bend an offering contact where prev he found this work a challenge. It’s brilliant and I’m keeping him on it despite the cost. Beware of the size of the scoop tho. The 1st tub went more quickly than it should as the scoop size is too big for my requirements. I’ve located another scoop so should see it last a bit longer.

    • admin

      Hi Anne,

      Thank you for the positive review and I am glad you are seeing fantastic results. I am sorry you find the scoop a little big however it is the right size for the measurements of the recommended daily amounts. Best wishes, Ryan #TeamBETTALife

  14. Victoria Russell

    I have been using PharmaQuin since it was launched for my now 25 year old dressage horse, having spent 10 years in a riding school before I brought her she had had a significant amount of stress on her joints and she struggled with suppleness. Within a week of using this joint supplement she was a different horse to ride and has been back out competing and enjoying her life. I can bring her out of her stable and ride without her having to loosen off first. I also know when she hasn’t had it and even my trainers cannot believe how much it has transformed her. Now all my dressage horses are on PharmaQuin.

      Hi Victoria,

      Thank you for your lovely review, we really appreciate it. I hope we can be of continued service 🙂 Best wishes, Ryan #TeamBETTALife

  15. Jane (verified owner)

    My boys been on pharmaquin for approx 2 months now and I’m very pleased with the results. He’s 14 years young and since being on it he now lies down in his stable which he rarely ever does.. he shows stiffness in his hocks which seems to be improving all the time.. hopefully he will continue to blossom on this product. I certainly won’t be taking him off it. I also started pharmatrac as he has suffered from ulcers and that seems to b helping him too . Thank you Betta life for 2 great products

  16. Elizabeth Elias

    I have to admit I was very sceptical about try yet another supplement for I 16’2 warm blood with kissing spines and arthritis in his sacroiliac. I have even had stuff from my vet that didn’t help. But Bettalife really has changed his life! Even after 3 months of box rest for stress laminitis he was never stiff coming out of the stable when before he started having it I would dread leading him out. He would be so stiff and uncomfortable walking. It has been absolutely amazing I can’t believe the difference. I’m so grateful
