Comprehensive Joint Supplement
High Potency for Maximum Results
EZ MOTION is an all natural nutritional supplement, safe for daily use, which is formulated to provide the nutrients necessary to build and maintain healthy joint structures. The ingredients in EZ MOTION have been shown to decrease joint and muscle pain, inflammation and stiffness and to prevent joint degeneration. They act to inhibit the inflammatory enzymes that destroy cartilage, bone and other components of the joint. In addition, they promote the healing of inflamed joints and surrounding tissue and enhance the healing of fractures. They also have been demonstrated to increase flexibility and range of motion and reduce the accumulation of uric acid.
The standard treatment regimen for joint pain and inflammation for horses includes the use of cortisone-containing drugs and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as, phenylbutazone (bute) and aspirin. These drugs help to manage the pain, but do not come without serious side effects. Cortisone can cause cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes, liver disease, thyroid suppression, osteoporosis, bone necrosis, peptic ulcer and lowered immunity to disease. The side effects of NSAIDs include gastrointestinal ulcer, liver and kidney disease and failure and bone marrow suppression. In addition, there is evidence that long-term use of cortisone and NSAID drugs actually damages the joints and accelerates the progression of joint deterioration. In contrast, EZ MOTION is a natural, effective alternative free from undesirable side effects.
99% pure Glucosamine sulfate is a major ingredient in EZ MOTION. Glucosamine sulfate is the preferred and most effective form of glucosamine. It is the only form that has been used in over 300 scientific investigations and in over 20 double-blind studies and is registered as an aid in arthritis in over 70 countries.1 In animal and human studies, Glucosamine sulfate has been shown to have an absorption rate of up to 98% when orally administered.2 Glucosamine sulfate is a building block of skin, eyes, bones, connective tissue and joint cartilage. Connective tissue forms the tendons of muscles and the ligaments of joints, while joint cartilage covers the articular surfaces of bone, preventing bone from rubbing on bone. Glucosamine sulfate is also a source of glycoaminoglycans which are essential components of cell membranes, cell surface proteins and structural molecules that hold cells together.
Glucosamine sulfate is crucial to the strength and integrity of the joints. Scientific studies indicate that decreased glucosamine production plays a part in the development of arthritis. On the other hand, these studies show that the administration of glucosamine sulfate acts to normalize cartilage metabolism, inhibits its breakdown and stimulates its growth so that joint function is partially restored.3 Glucosamine sulfate has also been found to exert an anti-inflammatory action unrelated to the mechanism by which cortisone and NSAID drugs work and exhibits no negative side effects. In addition, Glucosamine sulfate is a major contributor to the production of hyaluronic acid, another ingredient of EZ MOTION. Hyaluronic acid is a chief cushioning component of the joints and provides joint lubrication and shock absorption. Hyaluronic acid has become a major player in the prevention and treatment of arthritis in horses.
Boswellia extract (containing 65% Boswellic acids) is included in EZ MOTION to improve the blood supply to the joints, to restore the integrity of blood vessels weakened by prolonged physical stress and to significantly decrease pain and inflammation. Boswellia has a powerful anti-inflammatory action as it helps reduce both chronic and acute pain and inflammation. It has also been demonstrated to increase the viscosity of the synovial fluid. Patrick Maloney, D.V.M. of Louisville, Kentucky, has found Boswellia to have improved the condition of horses with a wide range of chronic joint soreness and arthritis.4
Perna canaliculus (New Zealand green-lipped mussel) and Yucca extract are other crucial components of EZ MOTION that act to help decrease joint and muscle pain and stiffness while increasing circulation. Perna is a rich source of essential amino acids, RNA, DNA and hyaluronic acid, and has a high concentration of gycosaminoglycans (building-blocks of connective tissue) which promote the healing of soft tissue injuries.5 Yucca has been used by the Southwestern Indians for centuries to treat arthritis and rheumatism.
Vitamin C and MSM (organic sulfur), nutrients essential for joint function, are also included in EZ MOTION. Vitamin C and MSM are involved in the production of collagen and help maintain connective tissue health. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant as are Zinc, Selenium and Vitamin E. They help prevent cell destruction and aging. Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese and Copper are crucial for building and maintaining strong bones. L-Proline is an amino acid which is a component of the collagen matrix and is also needed for joint health. Flaxseed, a source of Omega 3&6 fatty acids, helps inhibit the production of compounds that cause inflammation, swelling and pain. And lastly, the Anti-Inflammatory Herbal Complex 1TM is a special therapeutic herbal base which consists of a combination of specific herbs demonstrated to aid in the relief of joint inflammation and to promote increased joint flexibility and stamina.
All of the ingredients and flavors in EZ MOTION are of the highest quality, free of chemicals, synthetic preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, colors or sucrose. MANN FORMULATIONS contain Human Grade ingredients which are the highest grade ingredients in terms of purity and potency. They are far superior to feed grade ingredients. In addition, all of the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients used in MANN FORMULATIONS PRODUCTS are also in their most absorbable form. EZ MOTION is processed specifically to be palatable to horses. When first introducing EZ MOTION, use a small amount mixed in feed such as alfalfa and molasses or bran, and over a period of days, work up to the recommended dose to allow the horse to become accustomed to the flavor.
