Robank Equi-Ease® is an oral joint supplement formulated to provide essential building blocks for assisting health and repair of equine joints.
Equi-Ease® contains the following nutrients:
Glucosamine HCI – is used in many body tissues including tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The lack of glucosamine in the joints may lead to specific tissue weakness. As tissues in the joints become damaged, the lubricating synovial fluid in the joint spaces becomes thin and watery. Therefore the normal cushioning effect within the joint is lost, leaving the bones and cartilage to grind against each other inside the joint space, eventually leading to pain, inflammation and osteoarthritis.
Chondroitin Sulphate – provides structural components to the articular cartilage matrix and provides protective and nutritive functions to the joints.
Sodium Hyaluronate – provides structural components to the synovial fluid and provides protective and nutritive functions to the joints. It functions as a tissue lubricant and is thought to play an important role in modulating the interactions between adjacent tissues
Algirich® – an omega-3 fatty acid commonly found in marine oils including algae, fish and phytoplankton. Algirich® has been shown to have benefits regarding to:
- Increased recovery rate in horses.
Milled Wheat, Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Limestone, Chondroitin Sulphate, Algirich®, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Bentonite and flavouring.
