New: Joint Eclipse

21 February 2011

Joint Eclipse is a totally natural complementary feed suitable for those horses whose joints you wish to support. It is made from two proven ingredients: linseed, which is the most valuable plant source of the anti inflammatory, essential omega 3, and rosehips from the wild dog rose. In trials with arthritic people, doctors reported that rosehips were 40% more effective than glucosamine and that in 3 weeks another group had an 82% reduction in their pain. Something this good deserves our attention! We have sourced the very best rosehips from an accredited source through a supplier we know and trust; the linseed is grown especially for us by responsible farmers in Suffolk.

 How much to use: Good support is offered by using 20 g per 100 kg of horse, so a 500 kg TB type will use 100g per day. It is helpful to use a “loading dose” of double this amount for the first 4 weeks or as long as necessary. Add to your horse’s normal feed.

 Contra-indications: None. Suitable for all equines and compatible with all systems of management and feeding. GMO free. Vegan.

 Ingredients: Whole linseed, cooked and ground; whole rosehips from Rosa canina, dried and ground or chopped.

 Presentation: 5 kg and 10kg Polypacks.  5kg is sufficient for a 500 kg horse fed at the standard rate for 50 days.

 Appearance: Brown coloured meal with a pleasant aroma and mild, slightly sweet, nutty taste.

Linseed is a good natural source of phosphate, potassium, copper, zinc and selenium; rosehips, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and selenium. Up to 50% of the oil is essential omega 3.
