Joint in­flam­ma­tion, also known as syn­ovi­tis, is one of the main causes of lame­ness, es­pe­cially among sport horses, and can lead to os­teoarthri­tis and car­ti­lage loss. Taking good care of your horse’s joints will help to keep them flex­i­ble and healthy. Lieselot Hamer­linck of Cavalor ex­plains: “It’s more com­pli­cated than this but, a bit like a sad­dle pad, syn­ovial fluid func­tions as a shock ab­sorber, cush­ion­ing the im­pact from the horse’s move­ment. “If the syn­ovial fluid is dam­aged, it thins and ab­sorbs fewer shocks and this re­duced shock ab­sorp­tion can lead to dam­aged car­ti­lage and even dam­aged bone. A joint sup­ple­ment for a per­for­mance horse needs to keep the syn­ovial fluid healthy, and should also re­duce the in­flam­ma­tion.” This is why Ar­tiTec con­tains a pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion of anti-in­flam­ma­tory agents (Turmeric root and Boswellia Ser­rata), joint health nu­tri­ents (Glu­cosamine, MSM, Chon­droitin, Hyaluronic acid and black­cur­rant ex­tract) and pain re­lief in­gre­di­ents (fever­few and pineap­ple). This liq­uid sup­ple­ment is easy to use — sim­ply add daily to your horse’s feed.
