Rebuild and Support Bone Health in Your Horse. Cur-OST EQ Bone Support utilizes purified Shilajit, which is a heavy mineral extract that has been used in its raw form for centuries as a rejuvenative type of adaptogen, helping to restore and rebuild the body, including the bones and joints. There are many organic and inorganic elements found within Shilajit including fulvic acids, humic acids, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, nickel, calcium, potassium, manganese, silicon, stronium, sodium, sulfur, iodine, phosphorus, carotenoids, terpenoids, vitamins B, C, E, polyphenols, phenolic acids, oxalic acids, and tannic acids. One of the main ‘active’ ingredients based on research is the fulvic acids, which is concentrated into a 50% extract in the purified Shilajit. Fulvic acids, when combined with the natural mineral base of the Shilajit, have been used and researched to promote health bone and joint function. Added adaptogens including concentrated Eleutherococcus and Hawthorn Fruit help to combat the effects of stress and cortisol, while also directly encouraging bone health and joint function via inflammatory pathways.
The herbs and ingredients found in the Cur-OST EQ Bone Support also support healthy wound healing, cardiovascular health and circulation, and may positively impact performance and energy in the horse.
Considering the nature of bone and cellular turnover rate, this supplement is designed for long-term support, with improved condition often evident in 30 or more days.
