Fatty acids are very important nutrients: for humans as well as for animals. Some fatty acids are essential: this means that the body can’t produce them itself. This is why our (and our animal’s ) food needs to contain these fatty acids in adequate amounts.
The Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are essential for horses as well. Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) is an Omega 3 fatty acid and can be used by the horse to produce EPA and DHA. Omega fatty acids are important for the heart, blood vessels and nerves. Linoleic Acid (LA) and Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) are examples of Omega 6 fatty acids and are important for the functioning of the brain.

The use of nutritional supplements for joint problems is widespread. A lot of people use them their selves and a lot of people also administer them to their pets or horses. The term “glucosamine” is well known by a lot of us. Nevertheless a few facts at a glance:
* In the case of arthritis the amount and the quality of the joint cartilage diminishes. This results in pain, diminished range of motion and joint swelling.
* Glucosamine is a building block of cartilage. Long-term (!) intake of glucosamine can decrease symptoms caused by arthritis. The combination of glucosamine with chondroitin may enhance the effect.
* Other ingredients are often added to joint formulas, all for a specific reason. MSM for example has pain soothing properties and supports the repair of tendons, joint capsules and ligaments. Boswellia and vitamin C are added to relief stiff and painful joints.
