MSM (Methyl sulphonyl methane)
Why feed MSM?
MSM (Methyl sulphonyl methane) is a natural source of bio-available sulphur found in all animals and some plants. It is an important component of connective tissue playing a particularly important role in hooves, bones, joints and skin. MSM is found in the horse’s natural diet (including grass and trees) but is largely driven off by the processing of hard feed and preserved forage. Therefore, the diet of the stabled horse is likely to be deficient in this most important of nutrients. Feeding Horse Herbs MSM at the recommended rates ensures the correct levels of sulphur are donated to the areas where it’s most needed, such as the soft tissue elements of the joint.
