Arti-Base contains a high dose of hydrolysed collagen and glucosamine; important nutrients for maintaining cartilage. It also contains MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), an antioxidant with an alleviating action on the joints.
Devil’s claw (Harpagophytum) has a soothing effect on joints that are under a heavy load or have cartilage damage.
Thanks to the addition of apple flavour, even the pickiest horses readily eat this powder when it is sprinkled over their normal feed.
Warning: Harpagophytum is on the FEI’s doping list (“controlled substances”) because of its alleged anti-inflammatory properties (source: http://prohibitedsubstancesdatabase.feicleansport.org/). The administration of Arti-Base should therefore be stopped 3 days before taking part in competition. Alternative feed supplements during the competition are Arti-Sport and P-Block.
