B-L Pellets instead of Bute?

My QH gets 1 tablet of Bute in the AM and one in the PM for soreness and swelling due to arthritius - I noticed this product and wondered if anyone here has used it in lieu of Bute?

B-L Pellets
The Horse Journal's Two-Time #1 ranked natural pain relief formula is now available in a concentrated pellet form. B-L Pellets boasts the same active complex as industry leader B-L Solution in an alfalfa base horses love and horse owners know won't freeze. In 2000, the HJ reported B-L was "equivalent to 1.5-2.0 grams of Bute" and in June 2005, HJ said B-L produced the "Most rapid results and at the best price." B-L Pellets is a sure hit!

Contains Devil's Claw, Yucca and Vitamin B-12 in an apple and molasses flavored alfalfa pellet. Feed 1 oz., for an average horse (1100 lbs), daily with feed. 1 oz. Scoop inclosed.

I would be more likely to go with a Glucosamine supplement to help with joint discomfort, at least it's been proven in studies as being effective. Also, if you aren't exercising your horse a little every day, that will help minimize stiffness and pain from arthritis.

Also, talk to your vet about Adequan IM. It's a product that you can give yourself and I've seen really good results in our old arthritic patients when they were put on it.
