The elements behind healthy bone remodeling are more complex than simply ingesting calcium. There is a particular series of actions that needs to be performed between the nutrients that are essential for bone health. In other words, the activation process for bone restoration requires the proper balance of nutrients to be effective. TLC's Equi-Bone follows 3 principles to help establish the most effective use of these elements.
1) Ideal Mineral Ratio for Calcium Solubility - Proper mineral balance will aid to improve the rate at which calcium is converted to liquid, meaning that the calcium is in its proper liquid state to be absorbed by the bone cells.
2) Alkaline pH to Improve Calcium Retention - Providing a positive balance of bone building effects because diets consisting of acid forming foods lower pH values and lead to bone loss. Diets consisting of alkaline forming foods raise pH values and show bone preservation.
3) Circulation - Now that we have established the optimum nutrient levels, supported calcium availability and balanced the pH levels, we provide nutrients that support healthy circulation to be sure that these nutrients reach their targeted area effectively.

The Science Behind The Program - Bone deterioration is a result of bone resorption, a process in which bone cells, called osteoblasts, break down bone and release the minerals resulting in a transfer of nutrients from the bone matrix to the blood. Another type of cell, called osteoclasts, remove bone tissue by removing its mineralized matrix and breaking down the organic and inorganic portions of bone (i.e. they remove the minerals which make up bone density), transporting the degradation products away from the area. Bone resorption is stimulated or inhibited by signals from other parts of the body, depending on the demand for specific nutrients. An acidic diet will induce such effects. For example, in humans, the western diet consists mostly of acidic foods such as meat, dairy, soda and alcohol and we have the highest incidence of osteoporosis of any other country or individual nationality. It is inherently important to provide a proper dietary delivery of bone building minerals in specific proportions to minimize or even eliminate degeneration effects.
Calcium, phosphorus, sodium, chloride, copper, magnesium and potassium are used to support calcium solubility and to raise the cation-anion balance. By focusing on a high cation-anion balance, the body will experience an alkaline pH level, aiding in retaining more calcium in the bone. Over time, the end result is that more minerals are stored in the bone, leading to a greater bone integrity.
TLC'S EQUI-BONE IS DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER TRIED BEFORE!
Commercial "flex" products may provide joint support but the elements included in those products focus only on supporting the joint. We focus on providing the nutrients required to support healthy bone development in one easy to feed formula.
THE POWDER VS. THE PELLET FORMULA
Our EQUI-BONE pellet will last one horse for 2 months at the loading rate. The powder will last one horse for 2 1/2 months at the loading rate.

My jumper gelding had serious ring bone that was making him lame and refuse to jump. My top mare has side bone was consistently lame. Both have been on this product and both have improved x-rays and are back to work fulltime. It is pretty awesome. It took about six weeks but well worth the wait.

My horse got an abscess that came out the top of his hoof, when the vet xrayed the bacteria was so bad it had started eating the coffin bone. My sent the xrays to a specialist and the prognosis was to put the horse down. My vet suggested antibiotics, keeping the hoof wrapped and to start him on TLC Equi Bone, within 3 weeks he had new bone growth. We were all amazed, this is my baby, I love Buddy and because of TLC, I still have him to kiss and love on. Thank You so much for this amazing product.

June 2016 my horse injured his knee area. No breaks or chips but a calcification formed on the inside ligament creating a unsightly lump on the inside of his leg.I have been using Equi Bone for the last several months and the size of the lump is reduced down to 1/4 of the original size it started from.I will order another bucket next month. I ordered the powder first but it has to be mixed with water and poured on his feed for him to eat it. I will order pellets this next time only for my own convenience. I have recommended this product to several of my riding buddies.
