Bone Mineralisation Support

£178.95 £178.95
Per tub

SUITABLE FOR:

  • Young horses in confinement, or on box rest due to injury
  • All box resting horses, regardless of age
  • Racehorses or foals and yearlings recuperating from orthopedic surgery

FEATURES & BENEFITS:

  • A special protein source for bone collagen production, supporting bone density and maintaining bone area
  • Helps maintain healthy bone metabolism, tissue, and structure in performance horses
  • Supports bone quality at high-risk times, such as when young horses enter race training
  • Supports bone health at times when bone can naturally demineralise - when limited or no turnout is available, including during box rest due to injury
  • Provides specialised postsurgical nutritional support

DuraPlex® is proven to support optimal bone mineral density and bone area in both performance horses and growing horses. DuraPlex® is a proprietary blend of specific proteins, minerals and vitamins scientifically proven to support bone health during the natural process of bone demineralisation. These occur when access to free-choice exercise is restricted, such as when young horses enter a training environment, or during periods of total confinement in stables when box resting due to injury, or as specialist post-surgical nutritional support. DuraPlex supplementation helps to lessen that loss.

Studies at Kentucky Equine Research demonstrated positive changes in bone quality after just one month of supplementation. DuraPlex® supplementation was also shown to maintain bone health at times of demineralisation, which can be a naturally occurring episode.
