Arginine - An amino acid and potent nitric oxide enhancer that causes vasodilation of both smooth and skeletal muscles. It dilates the vessels of the skeletal muscles, thus providing more blood flow. The vasodilating properties work well in horses that tie up and is extremely useful in treating "Bleeders" because it reduces resistance to the blood flow through the lungs (racehorsemeds.com)
Hyaluronic acid (buffered) - HA a lubricating fluid that's naturally found in the skin, eyes, joints, fluid, and connective tissue. HA provides more lubrication than glucosamine due to how it holds water which is more beneficial to the joint fluid and important for shock absorption. HA is an integral component of synovial fluid and articulate cartilage (draxe.com)
Magnesium Hydroxide - used as an antacid to neutralize stomach acid and also as a laxative. In some cases, it is prescribed to help relieve mild colic (equimed.com)
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - MSM is A natural sulfur-containing compound that can be found in your horse’s body. The compound splits into methionine and Cysteine, two important amino acids. MSM is primarily used as a joint supplement to aid in the health of collagen and cartilage. It helps reduce inflammation and improve circulation. Skin, coat, and health supplements often contain added MSM for the sulfur. MSM may benefit a horse healing from an injury or suffering from chronic arthritic changes in its joints as well.

Octacosanol - used to improve exercise performance including strength, stamina, and reaction time.
Soybean Oil - classified as a vegetable oil it contains the good unsaturated fats with omega 3 essential fatty acid's and vitamin E. The omega-3 essential fatty acid's balance out the omega-6 your horse gets from other food sources.
The active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin, which regulates the activity of protein-nuclear factor Kappa B. Kappa B controls the activity of genes regulating inflammation. Turmeric has strong anti inflammatory properties which modulate a number of proteins and pathways that support inflammation. Turmeric can also serve as an alternative to steroids, influences bone health, and is a natural anti microbial agent.

Vitamin E - Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which plays a role as the #1 antioxidant & immune booster in the body. It also helps to prevent free radical damage to specific fats in the body that are critical for health and is an important vitamin that is required for the proper function of many organs in the body. In addition to being an antioxidant, Vitamin E is a “potent anti-inflammatory when given in high levels,” according to a University of Florida study. Your horse does not make Vitamin E. Daily outside sources of Vitamin E are required to maintain the right blood and tissue levels to help protect cells. Nerve tissue especially requires Vitamin E to function properly. Horses quickly get deficient if they engage in moderate to high amounts of physical activity. (Holistichorse.com DVM Frank K Reilly)
