Equine Joint Supplements | Hagyard Flex-tra 200
Even when not racing or galloping, your equine's legs withstand a tremendous amount of force on a daily basis. Synovial fluids lubricate the joints and cushion the pressure, allowing your equine athlete to keep the smooth, energetic joint action that their lifestyle demands. But constant wear and tear on the joints can over time, lead to a breakdown in the synovial fluid. Without proper lubrication and dissipation of force and pressure, the bones begin to rub together. Cartilage and ligaments are damaged, and the horse's mood and performance is affected, perhaps even perpetually.
The most common treatment is to inject hyaluronic acid directly into the joints. While this fixes the problem, it's also expensive, inconvenient, and carries additional risks and complications. In addition, you have to wait until the horse exhibits signs of pain and discomfort, meaning the issue has already caused damage to the body.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. And that's exactly what Hagyard's Flex-tra 200 does for your horse.
Developed by the Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, Hagyard's Flex-tra 200 is a revolutionary equine joint supplement designed to maintain healthy, flexible, pain-free joints in horses. The key ingredients in Flex-tra 200 have been clinically proven to improve joint mobility in horses using a double-blind study at Michigan State University. Unlike direct injections into specific joints, Flex-tra 200 works on all the joints in your horse at once.
Our solution is a preventative measure. Instead of injecting hyaluronic acid straight into the horse's joints after the problem has already caused damage, our supplement is administered orally. When used as directed, Flex-tra 200 is safe and very beneficial for your horse. Hyaluronic acide, glucosamine, and chondroitin are very useful in maintaining healthy joint cartilage and tissues, and our Flex-tra 200 contains all 3 supplements.
Using this supplement, even horses with exhausting exercise programs may never experience the damage and pain caused by lack of fluid on the joints. This allows them to stay in peak condition on the track, on the ranch, in the hunt, or on the show ring for extended periods of time. Have complete confidence in the quality and effectiveness of Flex-tra 200, the best oral joint therapy solution.
Why Flex-tra HA?
Hyaluronan, also known as hyaluronic acid or HA, is a natural biomacromolecule found throughout the body in all mammals. It has many functions and purposes including, but not limited to: cell signaling, skin healing, retaining moisture, lubricating connective tissue, absorbing shock in joints, filtering synovial fluid, and supplying nutrients to cartilage. Located in high concentration in synovial fluid and cartilage, HA's main purpose is lubrication and shock absorption in order for joints to function comfortably and efficiently.
HA also has properties that contribute to reducing pain, easing inflammation, and are chondroprotective. Although naturally occurring, HA quantities and production decrease with time, and deficiency may become problematic in older or actively competing horses.
Hagyard Flex-tra HA is a nutritional supplement containing MHB3 bioactive hyaluronin to provide horse owners and trainers an easy and effective way to administer this valuable biological compound. Hagyard Flext-tra HA is a quality option for treatment of problem joints or maintenance of healthy ones. This formulation of HA is optimized for oral administration with most absorption occuring in the mouth and esophageal mucosal tissues before reaching the stomach. MHB3 Hyaluronan is made from the highest quality ingredients and contains no animal by-products. It contains the highest concentration (240mg/oz) of Hyaluronan available.
