About Boswellia

The gum resin of the Boswellia serrata tree, also called frankincense, was prized by ancient herbalists, particularly in India, the Middle East, and in Northern Africa for everything from colitis to snakebites. Today, boswellia serrata is renowned for the support of a healthy inflammatory response.

About Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin sulfate is a naturally occurring molecule found in the cartilage and connective tissues of people and animals. Chondroitin is the substance that enables cartilage to provide cushion to healthy joints, and it is what the body uses to make new cartilage. Chondroitin also serves a vital role in the maintenance of healthy skin/coat. Chondroitin can be taken as a supplement to maintain healthy cartilage, joint lubrication, and healthy skin, nails, and hair.

Not all chondroitin is created equal

The chondroitin used in dietary supplements is extracted from the cartilage and connective tissues of animals. The most common animal sources are cow, pig, chicken, and shark. Chondroitin varies depending on the source, and scientists have separated it into three distinct classes: a, B, and C. this is important because chondroitin-a has greater health benefits than B or C, and some animal sources have more chondroitin-a than others. for instance, chondroitin sulfate sourced from beef trachea cartilage (used by springtime) has among the highest concentrations of chondroitin-a. Conversely, some products on the market are labeled as 100% chondroitin but contain little to no chondroitin-a, rendering them woefully ineffective. Chondroitin sulfate is one of six related substances called glycosaminoglycans (gags), which are also referred to as mucopolysaccharides. Adequate amounts of chondroitin are vital for normal joint function and maintenance as well as many other self-healing mechanisms.

"She seems to get stronger and stronger and more beautiful everyday..."

Dear Springtime,

I own and operate a horse rescue in Massachusetts by the name of Smokey Chestnut Farm. Two years ago I rescued Annie and Helen, a bonded pair of blind Belgian mares who were on their way to slaughter. 25-year-old Annie was much older than Helen, and struggled physically. It was very difficult for her to get up from a resting position. Even when she was standing she would continuously shift her weight from back leg to the other back leg. I knew I needed to give her something other than quality food to help her build her strength and integrity.

Your product, Joint Health Formula, was highly recommended to me by my sister, Jeanne. Within a short time, approximately several months, of giving Annie Joint Health Formula, I started to see a difference in her. Her comfort level started to increase and she was able to get up more easily after lying down to rest. She had been on your product for about two years and I can honestly say she seems to get stronger and stronger and more beautiful everyday. Thank you for making quality products and for caring about animals!

With gratitude, Heidi, Annie, and Helen.

Fractured Pelvis - Amazing Recovery

Dear Springtime,

I'd like to comment on how good the Joint Health Formula is. My 16 year old, 16.3 hand endurance Quarter Horse fell last year and fractured his pelvis. It was a bad fall. A friend recommended the Joint Health Formula. Immediately, I started him on it. At his two month check-up after his accident, my vet said that in almost all the cases he had ever seen he would have had to put the horse down at the two month mark. However, he was amazed at how well my "Cowboy" was doing. It has now been nine months later and he is doing great – even get a little buck out of him every once in a while. We still aren't riding him, but if anything, he is a retired, happy, comfortable horse. Thank you, Springtime!

Longer Strides – "I saw a difference in a week"

Dear Springtime,

Lately, my 12 year old TB gelding,Woody, has had a difficult time "making the distance" (strides) between fences at the hunter/jumper shows. A friend suggested I try Joint Health Formula after several competitor's products failed to succeed with improving Woody's suppleness and stride length. I saw a difference in a week. It was especially gratifying when my trainer commented on the increase in Woody's stride without knowing I had been using Joint Health Formula for only 10 days! Woody is a happier camper in the show ring and around the barn. He simply feels better and has been playing like a colt outside. Thank you for making showing fun again for me and especially for Woody.

"…he could remain sound"

Dear Springtime,

I used to have a horrible time trying to keep my horses free of bot fly eggs. I am happy to report that the Bug Off Garlic granules really works!!! Ranger, a Buckskin Paint, is on your Joint Health Formula. I was thrilled to discover he could maintain soundness – thank you! I appreciate what you do for my animals.

In the photo I sent, the gentleman is my husband Albert. He is riding Ranger (Texas Ranger), and I am riding my oldest horse, Charlie (Charlie Brown).

No More Abscesses or Horse Flies!

Dear Springtime,

I don't normally leave feedback but I had to say something about your product, Joint Health Formula. I have always liked this horse named Hawk since I first saw him four years ago at my trainer's ranch. Just last year in 2015, the trainer decided to let Hawk go and I asked for him.

During the summer when I got Hawk, I noticed that with just a little rain he would get an abscess in his right hind hoof and become lame. He would stay lame for two weeks, heal up, but then another rain would come and in just a few hours he would again get the abscess.

However, I read that the Joint Health Formula helps with inflammation and I thought I would give this product a try. Hawk no longer is inflamed on his hoof, and the best part is yet to come. For the past three weeks this year we have had steady rain, and Hawk has not been lame from a single abscess. He had an abscess one time earlier during the rainy spring, but it was not a bother for even two days.

I am happy to say that Joint Health Formula supports my "flat foot" horses' natural healing process and abscesses and lameness are better managed. He will be on Joint Health Formula for the rest of his life. I stand by this product whole heartedly. This is by far the best formula for him and any horse for that matter with abscess problems.

Your Bug Off Garlic is also amazing. I have always fed the garlic to my young four year old female (her name is Kenya, she's my baby). Anyways, Hawk used to be tormented by the horse flies and he used to get bitten especially on his privates. He would stomp his two hind feet, put his head down almost to the ground like he was going to pass out. But now with the Bug Off Garlic, he is so much happier and grazing is much easier for him.

Moving Merlin.

"Having actually felt the difference in Merlin's movements...I can attest that the Joint Health HAS made a difference."

Dear Springtime,

Last year my farrier had mentioned to me that my 21-year-old Quarter horse, Merlin, had a hard time keeping his hind legs up when getting his feet trimmed. In fact, he was afraid that Merlin was going to fall. Fortunately, that did not happen. Around the same time, one day while we were out riding down a paved driveway, I noticed that Merlin dragged his left hind foot for a number of steps, but then he was ok.

I mentioned this to Margaret, the owner of the barn where Merlin is boarded. She said that the owner of an older pony had just given her a container of Springtime's Joint Health Formula that she was trying out, and to offer it to anyone else that was interested. The timing was perfect, and we started Merlin on it right away.

Weeks later, the farrier told me that Merlin was maintaining normal function when he trimmed his feet. I also noticed that Merlin was much smoother, and less hesitant when we rode down hills. This made me realize that age related issues had been creeping up on Merlin, and I hadn't really noticed until I felt how much smoother he was, on the Joint Health Formula.

Having actually felt the difference in Merlin's movement while riding him and with the feedback from the farrier, I can attest that Joint Health Formula HAS made a difference. Merlin will be on this formula from now on. I recommend anyone with an older horse to try this formula to see if it makes a difference for them.
