If our horse is lame, if an obviously devastating d iagnosis seems to threaten the common future with our horse, turning to nature for help c an sometimes provide a more than valuable and adequate solution. In recent years, there has b een mounting evidence for the crucial role of diet in the development of joint and tendon dise ases, as well as for general mobility problems. It has been verified by studies that an a dequate supply in trace elements and minerals, high-quality fatty acids and antioxidant vitamins as well as a range of metabolism- activating herbs are highly beneficial for the hors e’s general mobility and well-being. New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels in particular have bee n found to contain a range of highly valuable properties in this regard, and their posit ive effects have already formed the subject of countless scientific studies with humans and animal`s.

Movicur has proven itself over years of application, and its ri ch variety of nutrients makes it an ideal supplement for hard-working competition horses, for valuable youngsters and older approved horses.
Research subject green lipped mussel
JThe most crucial nutritional component of Movicur is the New Ze aland Green Lipped Mussel extract. According to the marine scientist John Croft, its special nutritional impact is based on interacting biological functions.
However, according to his findings, only high-quality, premium m ussel extracts have been found to unfold their entire beneficial effect as this mussel extract contains a spec ial carbohydrate complex that is capable of controlling white blood cell proliferation the body produ ces in response to infection, but without suppressing the body’s immune system. Mussel extract also contains special long-chain f atty acids and enzymes which promote the formation of infection-inhibiting prostaglandins that are kn own for smoothly counteracting infections.
John Croft also talks about a third mechanism of action. It is the n utritious supply with mucopolysaccharides, also known as glycosaminoglycan. The body’s own chondrocytes are normally able to produce this type of protein- sugar compounds that contribute to the proper development of th e cartilage tissue, giving the cartilage its pressure- and shock-absorbing and the synovial fluid its friction-reducin g properties. Unfortunately, a horse’s diet is frequently too unbalanced, and years of deficiency can sever ely disturb the glycosaminoglycan-synthesis.
Efficient nutrient supplementation
The combination of the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel with he rbs, fermented brown millet and horsetail as sources of natural silicon, collagen-forming proteins, ocean- derived ground algae extract that protects the tissue, and the special supply with trace elements make Movicur a unique and extremely efficient supplement, serving different purposes. It sustainably supports the body’s ability to r egenerate and build up connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joint, and with additional ingredients such as vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids derived from mussel extract and linseed as well as complex sugar derived from algae, Movicur contains a huge range of natural tissue-protective active ingredients.
A healthy and balanced diet can efficiently reduce any risk of loss of elasticity and progressive cartilage degeneration as well as the thinning of the synovial fluid which is also associated with a considerable loss of its lubricating properties.
Approx. 40 g per 100 kg body weight and day. Approx. 20 g per 100 kg body weight are sufficient as prevention feed supplement.
