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 gelding was just a little off when trotting or loping from a injury he received as a yearling. I put him on Equi-bone and he's going sound.
This is second horse I put on Equi-Bone and both times the product fixed both horses.
This product is awesome.

I personally have a horse with navicular. As long as he is on the Equibone, he stays sound and is competing at a high level. I have tried to take him off 3 separate times, and he goes lame again. Needless to say, he won't come off this product again! I have recommended EquiBone to many of my clients with similar results. The product works. Enough said :-)

My horse could hardly move and I was considering putting her down. Thought I would try this product and started to see a change. She is. Now on maintenance level and is walking again.
