Equine Nutrition Supplements
Promote Optimal Bone Health in Horses & Increase Bone Density and Flexibility with Bio-available Silicon
Osteo-Sil™ is a mineral supplement formulated to promote optimal equine bone health. Osteo-Sil™ contains a bio-available form of silicon (silicic acid), clinically proven effective as supported by the journal article titled “Mineral balance in horses fed two supplemental silicon sources,” published in the 2007 Journal of Animal Physiology and Animal Nutrition.
Function of Silicon in the Horse
Silicon has an important role in bone physiology and metabolism by increasing bone building activity and decreasing bone demineralization activity in the horse. Silicon acts as a regulator for calcium and phosphorus uptake and directly contributes to a healthy bone cortex and a well-calcified bone matrix in the horse. Silicon also plays an important role in the formation of collagen and connective tissue.
Field Proven, Used Widely Among Veterinary Institutions
The benefits of Osteo-Sil™ an an equine bone supplement include:
- Increased uptake of calcium and phosphorous into bone (density)
- Increased production of collagen in bone and soft tissues, such as cartilage, tendon, ligament, hoof, and hair (flexibility)
- Proven to increase the ability of horses to stay in training without injury when compared to horses not supplemented with silicic acid
Osteo-Sil™ can be fed to horses at all life stages when optimal bone and soft tissue development and repair is needed.
