Support Bone Strength and Recovery with DuraPlexBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · May 23, 2017
DuraPlex® is a proprietary blend of specific proteins, minerals, and vitamins shown to increase bone mineral density and bone area in both performance and growing horses.
Studies with exercised Thoroughbreds at Kentucky Equine Research showed positive changes in bone quality after only one month of supplementation. DuraPlex was also shown to prevent the natural demineralization that occurs when access to free-choice exercise is restricted such as when young horses enter a training environment or during stall rest due to injury.
Duncan F. Peters, D.V.M, M.S., uses DuraPlex for his equine patients. “I have used DuraPlex for postsurgical cases in need of proper bone support. DuraPlex helped to supply the essential compounds for proper bone remodeling and repair,” he explained. “It supports the healing process and allows the horse to meet its potential as a performance horse.”
