Animal nutrition is as many a varied field as its human equivalent and, while there are certainly some stark differences between us and our four-legged friends, we all need to stay healthy. In this new blog series, we will be exploring some of the major ingredients and products for supplementing pets and equines. If you’re interested in the kind of product innovation needed to secure a coveted stake in a global market valued at an estimated $17.01 billion, look no further than Cambridge Commodities as we take you through the ins-and-outs of our first spotlight ingredient for pets and equines: Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM).
While it’s unlikely to win you any spelling bees, MSM is well-positioned to win you more than a few customers. A highly popular dietary supplement for use in animal feed, MSM is a naturally occurring chemical found in plants, humans, and animals alike. Although it’s often employed as an anti-inflammatory agent, MSM can introduce a range of benefits to your pet and equine product line due to its additional function as a contributor to healthy collagen formation. This makes it a key ingredient for supporting the maintenance of healthy skin, hooves, and respiration in animals.
Joint health can be just as important for pets and equines as it is to humans as they age, if not more so. From happy hackers and competition horses to canine athletes, MSM can be an essential source of joint support for all pets and equines when applied to animal feed as a food supplement. When further paired with other approved ingredients such as Glucosamine and Chondroitin, MSM can be employed in multifaceted joint health and antioxidant formulations tailored to the needs of even the most high-performing pets and competing equines
