Founded by the visionary Bruce Snipes, Equine America offers a fine collection of equine nutritional supplements formulated to address a variety of health issues. Snipes has proved to be something of a pioneer as Equine America became the first range to incorporate electrolytes and to use biotin in order to improve hoof health.
Equine America is perhaps best known for Cortaflex, a supplement to aid joint mobility. A Horse’s joints naturally suffer from wear and tear as the animal ages but this process has been accelerated by domestication. Carrying riders, working on hard or heavy ground and the concussion caused by metal shoes mean that horse’s joints are stressed. Joint supplements can help to redress the natural balance.
Cortaflex is a fabulous supplement from Equine America which features chondroitin and glucosamine. These are produced naturally by the body and are vital to tissue repair. Cortaflex is now also formulated to include hyaluronic acid for joint lubrication. This supplement is the choice of many leading equestrians and trainers and could help to keep your horse’s joints supple and pain free for longer.
The Equine America range also includes Coff-Less, a supplement featuring aloe vera and glycerine to soothe horses’ throats. It has been formulated to clear the lungs and to support the equine immune system. This supplement is for short term use. Your horse’s respiration can then be supported by Equine America’s Airways powder which is a blend of natural ingredients including garlic, fenugreek and kelp meal.
Vitamins, Minerals and Glucosamine
You will also discover vitamin and mineral supplements for general health in the equine America range, fine shampoos and glucosamine. A vital building block for cartilage, glucosamine is an amino acid sugar which helps the body’s tissues to repair themselves. Horses’ glucosamine production slows with age and this can lead to cartilage damage. Studies have shown that Glucosamine supplements can improve equine joint health.
The Equine America range features an impressive collection of equine supplements which have been carefully formulated to provide the support that horses need. They could make all the difference to the health and happiness of your horse.
