MSM is a naturally occurring dietary source of highly bioavailable sulfur. MSM makes cell walls more permeable allowing water and nutrients to flow freely into the cells while allowing waste and toxins to flow out. The body uses MSM and Vitamin C together to build healthy cells. The MSM used in Stride Free is distilled and not crystalline. The distilled is a purer form, more consistent, and manufactured in the United States.
Glucosamine Hydrochloride is a cartilage protective nutraceutical. Glucosamine is an amino monosaccharide produced by chondrocyte cells (mature cartilage cells) and used to make glycosaminoglycans (GAGS) and proteoglycans. Proteoglycans, GAGS, chondrocyte cells, and collagen make up cartilage.
Yucca is made entirely from the stem of the yucca shidigera plant. It has beneficial effects on arthritis, improves feed digestion, suppression of fecal and intestinal protozoa, such as those found in EPM.
Vitamin C - necessary for tissue repair, formation of collagen tissue, aids in healing wounds, and sound bones.
Vitamin E - helps in weight gains and feed efficiency, prevents tissue destruction in the body, makes for improved reproduction, acts to protect Vitamin A, is an antioxidant which retards rancidification of fat sources, protects the body against toxic substances, works with selenium, helps prevent anhidrosis.
Manganese - necessary for normal bone formation, growth and reproduction. It is also necessary for cholesterol synthesis and the metabolism of energy, fat, and protein. Manganese is necessary for the formation of cartilage and synovial fluid.
