Joint decisions

Not all that long ago, joint supplements were only given to older horses, but we’re seeing more people using joint supplements as a way to help prevent conditions as the horse ages, by promoting joint health. Whatever your requirements, we have a superb range of products, meaning that whatever your needs and whatever your budget, we have something to suit…

equimins-glucosaflex-10000-joint-supplementLet’s start with Glucosaflex 10,000. As the name would suggest, it contains glucosamine…at a rate of 10,000mg per 30g dose. The glucosamine is combined with MSM and ascorbic acid, and helps to nutritionally support the cartilage and tendons. This supplement is a great way to help maintain healthy joints, and it’s very cost effective too, as a 900g tub, which lasts for 60 days at maintenance level, has a RRP of £16.75…28p per day.

Our Flexijoint is a really powerful joint supplement and can be used to help maintain joints or when a problem exists. It helps to flexijoint_600g_tubpromote strong joint structure and the quality of synovial fluid through combining a superb range of high specification ingredients at high levels. In addition to glucosamine, MSM and ascorbic acid (as per Glucosaflex 10,000), Flexijoint also contains chondroitin sulphate and hyaluronic acid. Interestingly, many people believe that glucosamine is the magic ingredient in a joint supplement, and whilst it is a great lubricator, the chondroitin and hyaluronic acid actually attract moisture into the cartilage to help keep it spongy. Chondroitin sulphate is over five times the price of glucosamine, but we believe that the high levels we use in Flexijoint are one reason why our customers love it. In fact, we’re so confident in Flexijoint that we offer a money back guarantee…how many joint supplements do you know that do that? Another point to note here, is that you don’t need to feed all that much, so it really lasts. The average horse receives around 15g per daily dose, but many people feed even less and still report great results.

Flexijoint1LIn addition to our powdered Flexijoint supplement, we also have two liquid versions that contain the same range of ingredients, but are supplied in a different way, using a liquid base. One of these is our standard Flexijoint Liquid, which uses a Devils Claw herbal tincture, and Flexijoint Liquid with Bromelain, which replaces Devils Claw with bromelain, a derivative of pineapples. As per our powdered supplement, dosing rates are good, with 1 litre lasting between 50 and 60 days.

For horses requiring anti-inflammatory help, we’ve created Inflam-E-Rase. This helps to provide nutritional maintenance for bones, ligaments and joints. It contains Devils claw, bromelain, b vitamins, organic minerals and 14 different herbs. It can be used for horses prone to discomfort and, in some cases, can be used as an alternative to prescription drugs. Most horses receive 20g per day.

For those looking for purely herbal help, there’s Mobile Mover Herbs and Mobile Mover Liquid Herbal Tincture, and we also sell other great value joint products such as Arthritis & Rheumatism Blend, Cider Apple Vinegar, Liquid Devils Claw, Devils Claw Root, MSM and Superjoint HA.
