Dosage When introducing 4CYTE™ Equine to your horse start on 1/4 scoop mixed with feed, slowly increase over the first 5 days. If you are using 4CYTE™ preventatively the maintenance dose is 1/2 scoop (10.5g) per day. For horses following surgery or with symptoms of poor joint function it is recommended in the first 4 weeks to feed 1 scoop (21g) per day. After 4 weeks you can reduce the dose to the maintenance dose of 1/2 scoop daily
Epiitalis® • Apparent increase in chondrocyte viability, in the presence of Interleukin-1, which potentially reduces the rate of degradation of the cartilage1. • May increase the number of chondrocytes (chondroproliferation), which potentially increases the health and longevity of the cartilage1. • May reduce build up of negative chemicals Abalone • Source of Omega-3 fatty acids that may stabilise cell membranes, prevent oxidation, and therefore may promote better joint mobility2. • May inhibit the production of degradative agents and in turn inhibit chondrocyte death, reduce cartilage degradation and may decrease poor joint function2. New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel • May provide elements to assist with suppression of agents involved in cartilage breakdown3. • Source of amino acids, which may provide the scaffold upon which the cartilage matrix is supported2. • May assist in reducing GAG release from the cartilage matrix into the synovial fluid2. • May improve cell viability2. Marine Cartilage • Provides a natural source of essential GAGs and HA, which are necessary for the health of the synovial fluid and cartilage matrix2. • May inhibit the production of related chemical mediators, potentially adding to the complementary effect of the other ingredients2.
