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 workload 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.
