In recent years it has become increasingly clear that poor nutrition plays a major role in the development of joint and tendon problems as well as general movement disorders. An effective supply of trace elements and minerals, high-quality fatty acids and vitamins with an antioxidant effect as well as many metabolically active herbs can demonstrably contribute to improving free mobility. With its range of nutrients, the Movicur, which has been tried and tested for many years, offers high-quality additional nutrition for sport horses, young horses and older horses.
- To support tendons, ligaments and joints
- Contains New Zealand green-lipped mussel, collagen building blocks and silica
- Rich in specific active herbs, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants
- Biotechnically refined brown millet as an organic silicon compound
RESEARCH OBJECT GREEN-LIPPED MUSSEL
According to marine scientist John Croft, their special nutritional effect is based on interlocking biological functions. A special carbohydrate complex was found in the mussel extract, which keeps inflammation-activating white blood cells in check without suppressing the body’s resistance. Furthermore, special long-chain fatty acids and characteristic enzymes were detected. They promote the formation of prostaglandins, which counteract inflammation in a gentle way.
THE SECRET OF THE GREEN-LIPPED MUSSEL
John Croft speaks of a third mechanism of action. It is the mucopolysaccharides, also known as glycosaminoglycans. Protein-sugar compounds of this type are also made by the body’s own cartilage cells. They serve to build up the cartilage tissue, giving it pressure- and shock-absorbing properties. In addition, glycosaminoglycans are responsible for the lubricating function of synovial fluid. Long-term supply deficits due to one-sided feeding can inhibit the self-synthesis of glycosaminoglycans.
EFFICIENT NUTRIENT BALANCE
An essential nutritional component of the Movicur is the extract of the New Zealand green-lipped mussel in a very special quality (Biolane ®). Together with herbs, fermented brown millet and horsetail as sources of silicon, collagen-forming proteins, seaweed extracts with a tissue-protecting effect and a special supply of trace elements, the proven, nutritive combination effect of Movicur is created. This provides the body with good conditions to sustainably regenerate the connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints and build them up naturally. Since the articular cartilage is not a blood-supplied structure, its ability to regenerate itself is limited. A healthy, balanced diet can counteract the loss of elasticity and progressive degradation of articular cartilage. The reduction of nutrients in the synovial fluid, which lead to the deterioration of its lubricating properties, can be slowed down or largely prevented. Movicur also contains natural active ingredients for tissue protection with vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids from mussel extract and flaxseed and complex sugars from algae.
Offer approx. 40 g per 100 kg body weight per day mixed with the crib feed. Approx. 20 g per 100 kg of body weight per day are sufficient for supportive feeding . Note: Not suitable for demand-covering mineralization.
1 measuring cup corresponds to approx. 115 g
instructions This supplementary feed may only be fed to horses up to 8.3% of the daily ration (including hay) because of the higher content of vitamins and trace elements compared to complete feed. Please follow the feeding recommendations.
This supplementary feed contains mussel meal and must not be fed to ruminants.
