LitoVet Equine Joint Health Supplement 1.5kg (Equine)
LITOVET is a unique, patented horse feed supplement for equine joint health. It's made from the specially cultivated rose-hip Rosa Canina containing high levels of the active ingredient GOPO® (glycoside of mono and diglycerol), which is scientifically documented to help maintain joint mobility in humans and horses.- GOPO is scientifically documented to help maintain supple, healthy joints and joint tissues. - LITOVET is rich in antioxidants and contains several minerals and vitamins beneficial to horses, including high levels of Vitamin C - essential for formation and maintenance of connective tissues - including joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments and bone. - 100% natural. - No known side effects. - LITOVET is tested for absence of the prohibitive substances: caffeine, theobromine, theophylline, hyoscine, hordenine, atropine and morphine as defined by the BHA and the FEI. - Suitable for all ages and types of horses and ponies. - Available in a 1.5kg and 3kg tub. Benefits of GOPO: GOPO is one of the beneficial active ingredients in LITOVET. Scientists have documented the striking effects of GOPO in humans for several years. Now similar studies on horses fed LITOVET, containing high levels of GOPO, suggest it has a similar effect in horses. - Improved suppleness after exercise and willingness to work were just some of the results from research on over 70 horses at Charlottenlund Travbane, a Danish trotting track. - LITOVET can also increase the Vitamin C status in horses by up to 40%. Vitamin C is essential for the formation and maintenance of connective tissues - including joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments and bone. - GOPO and the unique process used in the manufacture of LITOVET are both protected by patents. - If you are using another supplement containing rose-hip extract that does not contain certified levels of GOPO then it has not been shown to help maintain joint mobility.
