Scientific Nutritional Products has added green lipped mussel into its supplement Horse Joint Right Supreme to give more protection for older horse’s joints in the cold winter months.

Also know as perna canaliculus, green lipped mussel is known for its soothing effect on joints.

“This beneficial ingredient works by encouraging synovial fluid production which acts to lubricate and cushions joints thus optimising joint function,” said a company spokesman.

“With the colder weather on the horizon Horse Joint Right Supreme supplement now with green lipped mussel will prove beneficial for older horses, horses with still joints or can be used as preventative measure.”

Stiff joints can result in reduced stride length, reluctance to work through and forward, refusing at jumps and sometimes a depressed attitude.

In winter time the drop in barometric pressure often results in troublesome joints causing more problems.

“Including a Horse Joint Supplement in your equine’s diet can help alleviate these problems and can also protect a younger horse or pony from these issues developing in the first place,” said a spokesman for Scientific Nutritional Products.

The supplement with the green lipped mussel is available at no extra cost to the original.

Prices start at £22.75 including free delivery. For more information visit the company’s new website at: www.horsesupplementsdirect.co.uk or tel 01377 245900 to speak to a member of the team.
