Silicon is an important element to maintain healthy bones, tendons and ligaments in the horse. Osteon® contains a highly bio-available natural form of silicon called zeolite to support bone strength and bone healing. Osteon is also recommended when equine cartilage or tendon support is needed.

Supplementing with a natural, highly bioavailable form of silicon like the zeolite found in Osteon, can provide effective support for bone strength, bone development and bone healing. The trace element is also important to the formation of articular cartilage and connective tissues. Additionally, silicon is also a key element in the structure of hyaluronic acid, which supports fluidity, cushion and lubrication of the joints. From bones to connective tissue to cushion, silicon plays a role in maintaining a healthy body structure.
Healthy connective tissues (cartilage, ligaments, tendons and bone) are vital to keeping your horse sound. Learn about the important role silicon plays and the benefits of feeding Osteon, a highly bio-available, natural form of silicon.

“I imported Ultime Espoir, which means Ultimate Hope in French, over 2 years ago. Just recently after showing signs of some soreness and having an MRI, we found an active bone bruise. Tumi is going through IRAP injections. I asked Dr. Carter if something was missing in his diet, and he recommended Platinum Performance CJ and Osteon. I see a difference in his progress already, and we are only one month in.”

“We are devoted users of your products – most notably, Equine Osteon. This product was recommended to me by a family member who saw major improvements in a palomino with a broken injury. My vet also recommended it. ‘Amber’ is recovering from a fractured navicular bone that prevented us from showing this season. But, I am just starting to get back on her for very light riding. We are so thankful for your products and wonderful customer service.”
