Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids cannot be produced in sufficient quantities by a horse's body to support health, and therefore must be consumed in the equine diet. In the wild, horses are natural grazers and consume 2-5 times more healthy Omega-3 fatty acids than Omega-6s, where the modern grain-based diet provides 17 times more harmful Omega-6 fatty acids than Omega-3's.
This dietary imbalance causes excess inflammation and can predispose horses to a host of chronic and severe health conditions. By feeding a forage based diet and supplementing with Omega-3's, antioxidants and amino acids, you can help to support normal healthy levels of inflammation in your horse's body.
Feeds can go rancid for a number of reasons. It is common for commercial feeds to have elevated levels of rancidity for a number of reasons such as ingredients like corn and distiller grains, the high heat/high moisture manufacturing process and normal storage methods. Rancidity damages fat content in feeds, causing excess oxidation that is harmful to a horse's body and cell structure.
The high levels of antioxidants in Platinum Performance® can help to maintain normal levels of oxidation and positively impact a horse's overall health and performance.

Less Lactic Acid - Minimizes production of exercise induced lactic acid.
Muscle Support - Intramuscular fat stores are front-line support during exercise.
Encourage Recovery - Helps delay the onset of fatigue and supports muscle.
Resveratrol is a compound that has received much public and scientific attention in recent years for its effect on inflammation(1). However, resveratrol has limited potential due to its poor bio-availability and its rapid degradation once absorbed. Pterostilbene (ter-o-STIL-been) is a methylated analogue of resveratrol that is far more promising as a nutritional supplement. For example, pterostilbene is 70-90% bio-available after oral intake, whereas resveratrol has a 20-30% absorption rate(2). Furthermore, pterostilbene remains intact in the blood for up to 7 times longer than resveratrol(3). Learn More About Platinum Longevity

What is the difference between tendons and ligaments?
Tendons link muscle to bone and are designated as either flexor or extensor, assisting in bending and extending equine joints.
Ligaments link bone to bone and act as stabilizing structures that hold bones together and prevent them from overextending.
Platinum Performance® CJ and Ortho-Chon® HA formulas contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA) to help lubricate and cushion your horse's joints. Although it is commonly administered intra-articularly (injected), orally administered HA has been shown, in several studies, to be bio-available (absorbable) and effective in supporting joint health.
By providing your horse a daily dose of HA it is constantly available to the body and actively working to help support your horse's joints. If your horse has an existing joint condition, or is subjected to activities that can lead to joint degeneration, you should consider an oral HA supplement to help support his joints.
