Joint Performance is an Australian owned niche-company solely focused on providing high quality joint health products to the Australian equine industry. Dr Georgina Learmonth is a Research Scientist and established Joint Performance Pty Ltd in 2004 whilst undertaking her PhD in the field of equine virology and immunology at Veterinary Faculty of The University of Sydney. Her much loved horse Romke was diagnosed with DJD earlier in 2004 and it became Georgina’s focus to develop and designed a joint health product to support the joint health of her own horse. Given her research background and her understanding of immunology she was then able to develop a product that is of the highest quality and based on sound research.
At Joint Performance we understand the importance of your horse’s joint health and the effect it can have on your horse’s performance. Joint Performance – Equine Joint Support Formula One and Two are made from the highest grade of naturally occurring biomolecules delivering optimal joint health to your horse.
To support the health of your horse’s joints nothing performs like Joint Performance…the science behind joint health.
PRODUCT FEATURE AND BENEFITS
Our Glucosamine sulphate is a naturally occurring biomolecule and is co-crystalised: this ensures stability and bioavailability.
Our Chondroitin-4-sulphate is lower in molecular weight (small particle size) than chondroitin-6-sulphate, which is found in shark cartilage. On average shark cartilage contains less than 10% chondroitin-4-sulphate compared to our products which contain greater than 90% chondroitin-4-sulphate : a low molecular weight is essential for efficient absorption as well as being small enough to enter the joint capsule.
Both our Glucosamine sulphate and Chondroitin-4-sulphate are of the highest pharmaceutical standard available internationally and have been assayed for purity.
Joint Performance – Equine Joint Support Formula 1 and 2 are highly palatable: horses will eat readily resulting in no waste due to sifting etc.
Glucosamine is essential for the production of healthy cartilage and joint fluid. Glucosamine sulphate (as found in Joint Performance – Equine Joint Support Formula 1 and 2) is considered more bioactive than the commonly used Glucosamine HCl. Moreover, sulphate has been shown to mediate the effect of Glucosamine.
Chondroitin-4-sulphate is the major form of chondroitin found in young healthy joints. It is one of the key components that gives cartilage its ability to absorb impact and resist wear.
