MSM powder – for the nutritional support of healthy joints, skih and hooves
MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) is a high quality, bioavailable form of organic sulphur, which is found naturally in fresh forage, but is largely lost by processing feed and the drying process of preserved forage (hay and haylage). This means that many stabled competition horses and ponies may not receive enough of this essential nutrient.
Sulphur plays many important roles in the horse’s body. It is a vital component of some amino acids and certain vitamins, and crucially, sulphur also plays a very important role in the production of collagen – a key component of connective tissue (ligaments and tendons) and cartilage – the “shock absorbing” layer in joints. All these specialised tissues are made from proteins, bonded by flexible sulphur compounds, which gives these important structures their vital elasticity.
Equine America MSM Powder is produced from the highest quality MSM, from NOPS and UFAS accredited suppliers and is available in 500g and 1 kg pots.
MSM–sulphur is believed to have many benefits to the body as it has the ability to pass through cellular tissue with ease.
• To provide additional Sulphur to the diet to encourage assimilation of other nutrients.
• MSM may also be beneficial for soft tissue injuries to aid in reducing swellings.
For an average 500kg horse, feed 14gm daily for 10 days with the horse’s regular feed. Thereafter, feed 7gm daily for maintenance.
Feed others according to body weight, less for smaller horses and ponies, more for larger breeds.
