ADVANCED NUTRITION FOR
BONE HEALTH & SOFT TISSUE REPAIR
Supporting Strong Healthy Bones
A healthy horse starts with good bones, your horse’s skeletal system is the foundation of its health. Platinum Performance® Equine provides silicon, a trace element important for the formation of articular cartilage and connective tissue, in combination with amino acids, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids to help facilitate proper bone formation and calcification. Osteon® can be fed in addition to provide higher levels of highly bio-available silicon for bone strength and healing. Feeding Platinum Performance® Equine and Osteon® in combination delivers an advanced level of support.

Natural vs Synthetic Silicon
Choose a bone health supplement that contains a natural source of silicon. Silicon is an important element for healthy bones, tendons and ligaments. Zeolite, found in Osteon®, is a natural source which means it is absorbable in your horse’s system.
Bone and Tendon Health With Silicon
Connective tissues (e.g., cartilage, ligaments, tendons and bone) are critical components of body structure and maintaining soundness. They are vital for the overall health and performance of all horses whether they are used for pleasure riding or competition. Silicon is one of many nutrients required for normal development and maintenance of connective tissues.
Silicon has been established to play an important role in the development, growth and maturation of bones and other connective tissues. Several studies indicate that an insufficient amount of silicon in the diet is associated with poor growth rates, developmental abnormalities, and a reduction in bone collagen and mineral content.1-3
