Performance horses are pre-disposed to increased wear and tear on their joints. This can lead to an imbalance between the production and breakdown of cartilage tissue. When the rate of breakdown exceeds the rate of production, cartilage tissue will begin to break-up causing erosion of the cartilage matrix. This can lead to serious problems, such as; osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease and articular lesions in the cartilage tissue. GLUCO-FLEX provides the components necessary for the nutritional maintenance of a healthy cartilage matrix.
Gluco-Flex is a specially formulated liquid feed supplement containing Glucosamine and MSM.
Glucosamine HCI is an essential component of Hyaluronate which forms an integral part of Synovial fluid – the joint lubricant.
MSM is a source of bioavailable sulphur. Sulphur is needed for the synthesis of connective tissue.
