Performing puts strain on your equine partner’s joints, so it’s imperative that they get additional support to protect and maintain their joints. Give your horse a competitive edge and improve training outcomes with TRI-ACTA.
Therapeutic Solution to Maintain Horse Joint Health
TRI-ACTA products can be used alongside NSAIDs and other medications to assist in joint injury treatment and recovery. With no risk of contraindications with medications, TRI-ACTA and TRI-ACTA H.A. provide your horse with the therapeutic dose of active ingredients necessary for repairing joint function and integrity, while also offering a natural solution to relieving pain and inflammation. Horses on stall rest or that are returning to gradual work post-injury can experience accelerated healing, reduced pain and inflammation, and prevention of injury recurrence by using TRI-ACTA products along with other veterinarian prescribed protocols. Ask your veterinarian today about how TRI-ACTA products can improve outcomes related to an injury.
TRI-ACTA plays a vital role in maintaining optimal joint function and mobility in your equine partner. For long-term usage, TRI-ACTA products are an effective proactive solution to repair joint structures, reduce inflammation, maintain mobility, and minimize the risk of injury.
Sport Horse Performance
Keep your sport horse or racehorse performing their best by supporting their joint health with Integricare. Our TRI-ACTA for Equine products help maintain joint fluidity, ensuring your horse can continue performing for years to come.
TRI-ACTA products help enhance the stride length of your performance sport horse or racehorse. Glucosamine sulphate encourages the formation of collagen in the body, enabling soft and connective tissues to remain elastic and extend more effectively during physical exertion. Meanwhile, MSM is an antioxidant that provides whole-body inflammation and pain relief. Minimising inflammation is essential for repairing and strengthening the supporting soft tissue.
The TRI-ACTA H.A. Maximum Strength formula includes the added benefit of hyaluronic acid which works to effectively lubricate the joint and minimise friction of cartilage. When a joint is properly lubricated, symptoms such as stiffness and immobility associated with joint degeneration and arthritis are mitigated and inflammation can be prevented altogether. This results in joints that move freely, fluidly and are able to extend and perform during the rigours of competition and training.
Hyaluronic acid contributes to the production and viscosity of synovial fluid within the joint capsule. When joints are properly lubricated and are encapsulated in viscous synovial fluid, they can more effectively absorb and dissipate shock. This not only protects the joint from degeneration and inflammation, but it also reduces the strain and impact felt on connecting tissues such as ligaments and tendons.
Supplementing your horse with TRI-ACTA H.A. allows proper lubrication to reduce friction between articulating joints, averting pain and inflammation and improve the resistance to compressive forces. This effectively minimises wear and tear on weight-bearing joints during training and competition. Furthermore, glucosamine and chondroitin contribute to the production of new cartilage and promote the integrity and elasticity of connective tissues. This provides stability to the joint, allowing the supporting tissues to return to their original state, preventing tear and strain.
Why Use a Horse Joint Supplement with Two Types of Glucosamine?
Glucosamine repairs cartilage, which is essential for keeping joints healthy and working properly. For some background, glucosamine is one of the building blocks in the creation of the substance glycosaminoglycans, which combines with hyaluronic acid to create proteoglycans. Proteoglycans and collagen are the main components of cartilage.
The two types of glucosamine that we use in TRI-ACTA products are called glucosamine hydrochloride and glucosamine sulphate.
Glucosamine hydrochloride is highly bioavailable, which means that your horse’s body readily absorbs it and is able to use it immediately. Glucosamine sulphate provides additional support for cartilage repair and contributes to the production of collagen.
When these two glucosamines are combined with chondroitin sulphate, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), and hyaluronic acid, it creates a complete solution for your horse’s joint health.
Chondroitin is necessary for the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans. But more importantly, it inhibits and neutralises destructive enzymes in the joint. In doing this, chondroitin acts to prevent the breakdown of cartilage. Studies show that supplementing glucosamine and chondroitin together enhances the efficacy of both components individually.
MSM is an organic sulphur-containing compound found naturally in plants and animals. It is a powerful antioxidant and provides whole-body pain and inflammatory relief, giving your horse additional comfort in the healing process.
Hyaluronic acid, within the joint, works to increase the supply and viscosity of synovial fluid. When the joint lacks proper lubrication, friction between cartilage and bone occurs, leading to pain, inflammation and decreased resistance to compressive forces.
The increase supply of synovial fluid helps keep your horse’s joints moving as they should.
