Gelatine hydrolysate promotes the formation of synovial fluid and thus supports the formation of stable bones and cartilage. Feeding feed with gelatine hydrolysate can help prevent degenerative joint and bone wear (e.g. arthrosis) or reduce existing conditions. The positive effects of a dosed supplementary feed have been confirmed by scientific studies (1) and veterinarians recommend it for sport horses as well as for age- and load-related signs of wear.
