Product focus: Equitop GLME, from Boehringer Ingelheim
With more than 100 equine joint products to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. This month we’re taking a look at Equitop GLME, made by the world’s leading manufacturer of equine veterinary medicines, Boehringer Ingelheim.
If you’re familiar with Equitop Myoplast, Equitop GLME has been specifically developed to complement this product, by supporting the healthy function of your horse’s cartilage, joint capsules, tendons and ligaments.
Developed especially for horses, Equitop GLME favours natural ingredients over synthetic; featuring sustainably harvested Green Lipped Muscle Extract (GLME). The high-quality premium ingredients offer nutritional support and help to maintain soundness.
GLME is a natural source of:
Glycosaminoglycans including chondroitin sulphate
• Omega 3 Fatty acids
The ingredients combine to help maintain joint functionality by supporting the maintenance of normal joint lubrication, the stability and elasticity of ligaments and the existing shock-absorbing properties of cartilage - as well as supporting the body's natural anti-inflammatory processes.
From the moment horses reach skeletal maturity, the ageing process kicks in and ongoing joint wear and tear is a key consideration for all owners. This is particularly important for horses in moderate to hard work, as every time they are exercised they will be encountering stresses and strains.
Equitop GLME’s unique pearl granules formulation makes it exceptionally easy to measure and feed - mix with feed or feed separately, depending on your horses feeding regime.
Equitop GLME is tested free from prohibitive substances, so you can use it with peace of mind before, during and after competition periods. The product is endorsed by vets and top international riders Scott Brash, Richard Davison, William Whitaker, alongside many more.
