Natural Help Options – for Hock & Stifle Joint Problems in Horses
The Hock and Stifle, as the main lower and upper rear-leg joints of the horse, bear not only a majority of horse and rider weight, but they are subject to the brunt of all the abuse that comes from pushing off or propulsion, as well as the demands of extended running or trotting. Then, you have more dramatic demands involved in jumping or twisting activities such as barrel racing or other events such as calf roping and such. No wonder that these joints are especially susceptible to injury, trauma, or wear. Once any such damage is done, lameness is likely to be apparent – due to the pain and inflammation. The demands of such complex activities – the quick turns, pivot maneuvers, sudden stops, and sudden acceleration, can take a toll on any horse. The Hock joint is also where the Achilles tendon is attached, and this can add increased opportunity for injury or trauma.
It may be feasible to expect the body of a horse to handle all these challenges and stresses while carrying no weight other than his own, but the added weight of a rider complicates the equation. All that being said, it is easy to understand how easily a horse might sustain injury or trauma to such a joint. Only a slight misalignment being in play when tremendous pressure enters the picture, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Natural Support for Hock and Stifle Joints
The Super-food protein found in our Sprouted Granules enables your horse to produce a whole series of metabolic enzymes, such as Superoxide Dismutase, Catalase, Glutathione Peroxidase and others in that group. Their primary role is in maintaining cellular health by removing toxic build-up. Healthy cells are the foundation for general health. When the cells are healthy and thriving, healing and repair issues can be advanced; inflammation and stiffness can be controlled; greater energy can be released, and general overall health will be promoted. We believe this is the best way to promote effective and speedy recovery – via the natural processes involving this set of enzymes.
In this realm – of supporting enhanced enzyme functionality – we have a solid history of significant success with the Nzymes® Sprouted Granules product covering a wide variety of serious issues involving hock and stifle problems in horses. Therefore, we feel very confident that this product is the best possible ‘all natural’ answer to providing help for your horse.
