Silicon stimulates bone formation and is a key element in the structure of substances such as hyaluronic acid, which cushions and lubricates joints to protect them from compressive forces. In a study of Standardbred race horses supplemented with zeolite (a form of silicon), it was proven that the supplemented horses had faster middle-distance run times and had fewer injuries than horses that were not supplemented. The authors of the study concluded that silicon supplements may allow horses to train at faster speeds for longer periods of time without incurring injury.
Silicon is the second most abundant mineral on planet earth. So, you would think that horses are bound to receive an adequate amount of it in the typical equine diet of forage. However, the form of silicon that is readily available (silicon dioxide or silica) is not bio-available (absorbable) in the horse's body. It is important to supplement with a natural form of silicon such as zeolite, which is the form used in Platinum Performance® Equine, Platinum Performance® CJ and in Platinum Osteon™, to obtain the benefit from supplementation.
"I've always believed that Platinum puts the right building blocks into a horse. I've always considered the company and the people behind it. Ultimately I guess the proof is in the pudding, it's how your horses look and how they respond to the program. You can see the difference in them."
