MSM contains sulfur in a form the body can readily use. Sulfur is necessary for the production of collagen, glucosamine, and chondroitin, all of which are building blocks of cartilage. Sulfur is necessary for the formation of all connective tissue in the horse's body, including cartilage in joints. Sulfur also works with thiamine, pantothenic acid, and biotin to promote metabolism and communication between nerve cells. Sulfur is found abundantly in keratin, a major component of hair, hooves, and skin, and it's included in some horse skin, coat and hoof supplements. Sulfur is also necessary in the formation of glutathione, which functions as one of the body's best natural antioxidants.
MSM is one of the most commonly administered joint support products for horses.
Primary benefits of MSM are its anti-inflammatory and circulatory enhancement properties. MSM has a number of health normalizing activities. It reduces the time for recovery from a maximum competitive performance effect. Recovery time to normalcy is about 25% of the pre-MSM experience.
MSM also has an anti-allergic effect by competing with ingested toxins or allergens for binding sites.
Specific conditions that have responded to MSM use are:
- epiphysitis in young growing horses
- joint issues
- anti-inflammatory assistance
- acute laminitis
- early navicular disease
- hoof growth problems
- hair coat condition
- infertility in geriatric mares
- gastric ulcers & other problems of the digestive tract in young foals
- nourishes the digital cushion and the 'gel pad' in the hoof (minimises concussive impact)
anecdotally many owners also report an increase in hoof and hair regrowth.
