TENDON & LIGAMENT
Keeping Connective Tissues Healthy
Horses put a lot of stress on the tendons and ligaments that hold their bones and muscles together! There are several nutrients that are supportive in this area, and provide the building blocks required for strong connective tissues.Shop Formulas
Support with Silicon
Silicon supports both bone formation and calcification, and proper development of cartilage in the joints and connective tissues. Silicon deficiency causes slowed collagen formation, creating a negative impact on bone and connective tissues.Learn More about Osteon
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.

"Sienna Sky was diagnosed with a small tendon tear in her DDFT down in her foot near the navicular bursa. She was given a strict rehab program and a daily supplement of Platinum Performance CJ and Osteon. The Osteon to help support and heal bone and connective tissues. After 8 months, she is doing great and should be ready to enter the show ring soon. Even being layed up, she stayed in great physical condition." — WenDee C.

"About 1.5 years ago, my horse Salomon had foundered, injured his tendon sheath and fractured a bone in his leg all in the span of 2 years. After he foundered, I was concerned if he would be able to come back to full training. With the help of my vet, he made an incredible recovery — partly due to her recommending Platinum CJ. He looks great and is moving like his former self. We are back to competing and enjoying life together." — Marybeth L.
