Frequently asked questions about PrimeVal Gelatinaat for horses
What is gelatin and how does it work?
PrimeVal Gelatinaate consists of 66.57% collagen hydrolyzate, which contains a special amino acid spectrum. Amino acids link together in chains of which thousands of combinations are possible. Many of these combinations correspond to a type of protein found in the horse's body. The special amino acid chain of PrimeVal Gelatinaat corresponds to that of the cartilage in the joints of the horse and is a main component of the connective tissue, hooves, bones, tendons, ligaments and skin. PrimeVal Gelatinate versus glucosamine Without prejudice to the significance of glucosamine for the cartilage, it should be mentioned that Gelatinate has a broader effect in the body than glucosamine alone. In addition to chondroitin, msm sulphur, omega fatty acids, calcium, copper, magnesium and iron, Glucosamine is one of the most important nutrients for cartilage. However, gelatin is also active in bone, ligaments and tendons, hooves and hair; so in fact in the whole horse, with the exception of his muscles.

What is the difference between Primeval Gelatinate and how Glucosamine works?
PrimeVal Gelatinaat works differently from glucosamine; is better than glucosamine. PrimeVal Gelatinaate has a broader effect on the cartilage than glucosamine. Cartilage consists of 70% collagen and almost 30% proteoglycans. Glucosamine acts exclusively on the proteoglycans, which corresponds to almost 30% of the cartilage. The innovative PrimeVal Gelatinaate therefore works on almost 100% of the cartilage, namely on both the collagen and the proteoglycans. What is Gelatinate and how does it work?
