There are two major forms of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a common form of arthritis that involves inflammation of the joints, swelling, pain, and loss of function. The primary symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is inflammation of the synovial membrane. The membrane thickens and synovial fluid accumulates. The resulting pressure causes pain and tenderness. The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis, is a degenerative joint disease that is far more common than rheumatoid arthritis. It is characterized by the deterioration of articular cartilage and the formation of new bone in the subchondral areas and at the margins of the joint. The cartilage slowly degenerates and as the bone ends become exposed small bumps of new osseous tissue are deposited on them. These bumps decrease the space in the bone cavity and restrict joint movement. Phycox Equine Granules Supplement is a new use patented product found to function as a natural COX-2 inhibitor. Scientific research has shown that Phycocyanin is effective at treating arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Horses love the taste of Sweet Apple and Molasses flavor. It's readily accepted by horses in 99% of the instances they were offered in a free-choice palatability study.
