The modern horse is very much like the modern athlete. We have more and more expectations of them, and a horse or pony does not necessarily have to be old to have Flexijoint. It contains high levels of Chondroitin, which provides the components that are the shock absorbers of cartilage. It does this by binding large amounts of water into the cartilage. Another constituent of Flexijoint is Glucosamine, which is essentially the building block for lubricants and shock absorbers in the body. Then we include MSM, an organic form of sulphur, which is needed for the synthesis of connective tissue. Antioxidant vitamin C is included too, because it helps to rid the body of free radicals. For horses in competition Flexijoint Liquid with Bromelain is an alternative. Bromelain is a very effective product derived from pineapples and is approved for competition rules. Our sister company makes a human version of Flexijoint in capsule form, so ask your retailer to get some in for you! Other joint products in the Equimins range are herbal and include Mobile Mover Dried Herbal Blend and Mobile Mover Liquid. Oils can also help stiff joints and A & R Cod Liver Oil has been formulated with precisely this in mind.
