Glucosamine HCI & Sulfate (shellfish source) - Glucosamine is a natural occurring chemical compound (amino sugar) in the body and is often used in joint supplements to relieve joint pain caused by arthritis. Glucosamine sulfate is the most common type of glucosamine and is the one most studied in animal trials. It contains sulfur which is required in the construction of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and a thick fluid that is found around the joints. (Flexin.com, medlineplus.gov)
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - MSM is A natural sulfur-containing compound that can be found in your horse’s body. The compound splits into methionine and Cysteine, two important amino acids. MSM is primarily used as a joint supplement to aid in the health of collagen and cartilage. It helps reduce inflammation and improve circulation. Skin, coat, and health supplements often contain added MSM for the sulfur. MSM may benefit a horse healing from an injury or suffering from chronic arthritic changes in its joints as well.

Octacosanol - used to improve exercise performance including strength, stamina, and reaction time.
Soybean Oil - classified as a vegetable oil it contains the good unsaturated fats with omega 3 essential fatty acid's and vitamin E. The omega-3 essential fatty acid's balance out the omega-6 your horse gets from other food sources.
Vitamin E - Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which plays a role as the #1 antioxidant & immune booster in the body. It also helps to prevent free radical damage to specific fats in the body that are critical for health and is an important vitamin that is required for the proper function of many organs in the body. In addition to being an antioxidant, Vitamin E is a “potent anti-inflammatory when given in high levels,” according to a University of Florida study. Your horse does not make Vitamin E. Daily outside sources of Vitamin E are required to maintain the right blood and tissue levels to help protect cells. Nerve tissue especially requires Vitamin E to function properly. Horses quickly get deficient if they engage in moderate to high amounts of physical activity. (Holistichorse.com DVM Frank K Reilly)
Zinc - The most important job of zinc (Zn) in your horse's body is to be a part of enzymes. It is a part of many important enzymes, including those responsible for insulin production, blood clotting, and wound healing. Zinc is required by animals for numerous functions including: immunity, reproduction, skin and hoof integrity, muscle development, and milk production. (Understanding-horse-nutrition.com)
