Granules or Gel? Which supplement is best for your horse?

One of the questions that pops up frequently in our online community is this: “what’s right for my horse? 4CYTE Granules, or 4CYTE Epiitalis Forte Gel?”

So let’s break it down!

Both daily feed supplements contain our exclusive active ingredient, Epiitalis, a natural plant seed oil patented for its revolutionary cartilage repair and pain relief properties. They’re also safe to use long-term, non-swabbable, palatable and endorsed by veterinarians.

Your choice depends on your circumstances. If your horse requires treatment for acute joint disease, injury, pain or post-operative support, Epiitalis Forte Gel is for you. Its concentrated formula complements prescription joint pain treatments, and addresses initial signs of osteoarthritis, such as:

  • Intermittent lameness.
  • Reluctance to rise or move.
  • Stiffness (especially after vigorous exercise or prolonged periods of rest).
  • Swollen joints (may be warm or tender).
  • Visible joint deformities.
  • Painful joints when touched, palpated or moved.

To protect and actively maintain your horse’s joint health, 4CYTE Granules are your go-to product. Not only does the Epiitalis target and address the cause of joint disease, the ingredient blend of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel, abalone and marine cartilage combines to improve your horse’s coat, general health and well-being.

We hope that helps you with your 4CYTE product selection! Feel free to email us with any questions – we’re only too happy to help!
