Start the new year off right with four new supplements that could help your horse!
If your New Year’s resolution included taking the best care of your horse possible, you might be interested in these four new supplements from our friends at SmartPak. This latest generation of supplements represents cutting-edge research to help your horse feel his best, from taking care of joints and tendons to helping the aging horse find his maximum comfort.
SmartStride Ultra Pellets
This unique formula was designed to provide your horse with cutting-edge ingredients for healthy joints, tendons, and ligaments. The foundation of this formula is a significant serving of collagen, which has been demonstrated to help support healthy, resilient cartilage and comfortable movement. Next, it includes potent antioxidants such as turmeric and resveratrol. The key benefits of turmeric include supporting a normal response to inflammation and addressing the discomfort that can come from exercise, while resveratrol is known for its ability to help protect cartilage from the damaging effects of free radicals. This formula also provides Cinq-B™, a specialized blend of boron, which is a mineral that plays a role in joint and bone health. Finally, it includes MSM, glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid for well-rounded joint support.
This comprehensive formula provides carefully selected herbs and other ingredients such as devil’s claw, yucca, MSM and cetylated fatty acids to help support your horse’s comfort. It also provides potent antioxidants such as vitamin C and turmeric root to fight oxidative stress and support a normal response to inflammation. SmartComfort Pellets are perfect for adult and senior horses that need added support for day-to-day stiffness and aches.
SmartBreathe Ultra Pellets
The unique formula includes spirulina, a fresh water blue green algae that has been reported to help horses prone to respiratory issues, especially those associated with seasonal allergies. This supplement also contains DHA from fish oil, another key ingredient that may be beneficial for horses with respiratory stress associated with seasonal allergies. A recent study in horses with airway syndromes has documented the benefits of supplementing the diet with DHA, a specific type of omega 3 fatty acid also found in these pellets. Next, it provides MSM and herbs to help soothe your horse’s airways and promote a normal response to inflammation. Finally, it includes vitamin C, turmeric, citrus bioflavonoids, and other antioxidants to support respiratory cell health.
This formula includes hydrolyzed collagen to support a healthy bone matrix, as well as silica and other vitamins and minerals to promote bone strength and normal healing. Finally, it provides Cinq-B™, a specialized blend of boron, which is a mineral that plays a role in bone health. SmartOsteo™ Pellets are the perfect choice for performance horses and for horses in recovery, especially those who are on stall rest or have limited activity.
