  • Blend of highly active natural compounds: Chondroitin, Collagen, Curcumin, Glucosamine, Glutamine, Hemp Oil derived Omega 3 fatty acids, MSM and Vitamin C, plus Oatinol derived: antioxidants, polar lipids, Beta Glucans and Galactolipids.
  • Using the patented Oatinol Delivery System, Joint Aid Plus quickly helps maintain a healthy digestive system with rapid absorption of essential active ingredients, vitamins and elements.

Ingredients Benefits

Active Ingredient Why we use it
Chondroitin Chondroitin is essential for the resilience of cartilage by maintaining the resistance to compression. It also aids the repair and formation of connective tissue.
Collagen Collagen possesses great tensile strength and provides the body’s tissues with their firmness and strength. Referred to as the “glue that holds the body together”, it is essential for connecting and supporting the bones, tendons, muscles and cartilage.
Curcumin Curcumin is the active ingredient of the spice, turmeric. It is a natural and powerful antioxidant and supports the normal anti-inflammatory action of the body.
Glucosamine Glucosamine gives cartilage its strength, structure and shock absorbing qualities. It is involved in the formation of tendons, skin, bone and ligaments and is found in high concentrations in connective tissue and cartilage.
Glutamine (Glucose Fermentation) Glutamine is a protein derived amino acid that supports the natural immune response and is essential for gut wall integrity.
Hemp Oil Derived Omega 3 Fatty Acids Hemp oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids found in the plant world. This unique combination enables the horse to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils, but are crucial for the health, fertility, condition and performance of the animal.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) MSM is a source of natural organic sulphur. Sulphur is found in high concentrations in joints and helps to form cross links with other molecules that maintain the strength and integrity of connective tissues.
Vitamin C Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen in the body that forms the matrix of connective tissues in mammals. It directly affects the level of tissue growth, development or repair after injury so is crucial for healing and the body’s immune system.

Contains the Oatinol® Delivery System For all of the above active ingredients to be utilised, they have to be absorbed from the horses’ digestive tract. Oatinol supplies natural antioxidants, polar lipids, beta glucans and galactolipid emulsifiers, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Active Ingredient Why we use it
Oatinol - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that help establish the perfect medium for enzyme activity in the gut to absorb feed components
Oatinol - Natural
Tocotrienol Antioxidants
Tocotrienol antioxidants are found naturally in oat bran. This tocotrienol form of vitamin E is 40 to 60 times more readily recycled in membrane systems and supports tissue integrity.
Oatinol - Oat Derived
Beta Glucans
Beta glucans provide nourishment for beneficial fibre degrading microbes and helps maintain a high level of natural immunity.
Oatinol - Polar Lipids Polar lipids are found in high concentrations in cell membranes and are essential for tissue integrity and the controlled passage of materials into and out of cells.

Is the GWF joint supplement ok to be fed to lamanetics?

I have a 17 year old who even though hasn't had any signs of laminitus for the last few years he is prone to it and has to be managed carefully he is now showing early signs of artheritis so am I ok to feed him the GWF?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

It should be fine to give this supplement and it might well help with symptoms of arthritis, some people report good results, some are not so sure.

Improve Arthritis

22nd Sep 2015
amie-sian

will this help improve mild arthritis in stifles ?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

The hope is that it will do exactly that. In practice it does often seem to reduce the symptoms of stiffness and discomfort from joints with arthritis, but it is not an absolutely consistent thing. Some horses appear to improve while others show no obvious benefit. This product and similar supplements do sell in large quantities and remain very popular, so the anecdotal evidence is that they do work. They are not licensed medicines so there is no scientific proof of their effect yet.

Do you still need to feed a balancer with this?

8th Jul 2015
Karen Richards
  • VioVet Customer Since: November 2014
  • From: Sir Gaerfyrddin, United Kingdom

I've been feeding this for a while now and all is good, I feed it with hifi and fibre beet, just been wondering if I should be feeding a balancer ae well???

  • Customer Service Operative

A balancer is a low-intake, concentrated source of essential protein, vitamins, and minerals, which is designed for all classes of horses when additional calories are not required. Feed balancers are really important if you are not feeding the recommended volume of feed to your horse, as they may not be getting all of the specific nutrients that they need. A lot of balancers contain biotin, amongst other products, which help to improve the quality of the hooves, skin and coat. They can also contain prebiotics and probiotics to help the horse to properly utilise the feed that they are already getting.

Balancers are especially important for the younger, veteran or active horse, as they require a full spectrum of readily-available vitamins and minerals which are so important for maintaining a happy, healthy horse.

Competition legal?

Is this ok for horse to compete on?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This product does not contain any banned substances and so is perfectly acceptable to give to competition horses.

Does this help with bone spavin

11th Apr 2015
sharon

I use Newmarket joint supplement to help with my horse who has mild bone spavin, it doesn't work as good as it use too. Will this product help better than the Newmarket supplement

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

The GWF product has a much wider range of ingredients, though a lower concentration of one key ingredient. Basically they are different products and it is difficult to know which one would give the best results in your horse because all horses vary. Some seem to respond better to one product than another and this varies and is difficult to predict. If you are finding that the results presently are disappointing, then it makes sense to try a different type of product and see how it goes. I would try the GWF one.
