Cavalor® Arti Matrix provides the appropriate nutrients to support the musculoskeletal system of sport horses when they are under additional stresses. Cavalor® Arti Matrix offers a matrix solution for problems associated with bones, joint capsules, tendons, cartilage and synovial fluid, which mainly manifest themselves in horses with a sensitive musculoskeletal system or horses subject to heavy physical exertion. Acute or structural joint problems call for a different requirement of specific nutrients. In addition to joint supporting nutrients, Cavalor® Arti Matrix also provides nutrients that support certain physiological processes to ensure that the musculoskeletal system can quickly and effectively return to its optimum condition.
Type II hydrolysed collagen: Type II collagen produces fibre. This collagen fibre network supports the joints and strengthens tissue.
Methylsulfonylmethaan (MSM): is an organosulphur compound. Sulphur is important for the muscles, joints, cartilage, bones and blood; MSM is the most easily absorbable and biologically available source of sulphur.
Glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and hyaluronic acid: Glycosaminoglycans are vital building blocks for ligaments, tendons, bones and synovia (synovial fluid). The chondroitin sulphate we use has a low molecular weight, which means that it is easily absorbed into the horse’s body. Similar to other raw materials, quality is also a benchmark for price and effectiveness in this case. Cavalor® selects raw materials with the highest active ingredient content. For example, the chondroitin sulphate contains 90 % active ingredients.
L-Glutamine: Is a building block for glutathione, an antioxidant. Glutathione is important in the recovery process following an injury.
Whey protein isolate (WPI): a glutathione precursor. Glutathione is a very powerful antioxidant. Pure glutathione cannot be administered orally. Cavalor® uses a nutrient complex by the name of WPI that stimulates the production of Glutathione in the body. Glutathione protects the cells from the destruction caused by increasing attacks from free radicals. Glutathione combined with other antioxidants such as vitamin C, E, bioflavonoids and selenium neutralises these free radicals.
Vitamin C + E + beta-carotene + bioflavonoids (grape seed extract): have a significant antioxidant function, are important for the absorption of active ingredients and strengthen the immune system.
B vitamins: folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12: play a key part in supporting the body’s metabolic processes.
Combination of inorganic and organic (Intellibond and chelated) minerals copper, zinc and manganese: Organic minerals have a better biological availability but inorganic minerals are more stable.
Lithothamnion: calcareous marine algae which contain different forms of calcium that have a beneficial effect on bone strength.
It’s all in the mix – a complex mixture of botanical ingredients
Specialist mixture of herbs and essential oils including Ananasus comosus, Curcuma longa, Boswellia serrata, Equisetum arvensis, Echinacea purpurea, Citrus aurantifolia and Tanacetum parthenium. The ingredients in this mixture have a cumulative and synergetic effect, which has been scientifically proven in our research programme 1,2,3. The combination of herbs and essential oils ensures, for example, that all ingredients easily reach the joint, promote repair and reduce stiffness. Again we focus specifically on the quality of the raw materials, which really makes a difference with herbs in terms of their guaranteed concentration and efficacy. For example, the form of Curcuma we use contains 95 % curcuminoids, the active substance
