MAX FLEX™ CHONDROITIN PELLETS:
Helps maintain healthy joints.
Contains chondroitin sulfate in a regular strength formula. Max
Flex Chondroitin. Chondroitin Sulfate, regular strength.
Chondroitin Sulfate in Alfalfa Meal. Chondroitin Sulfate, is
95+%pure. Feed Supplement for all classes of horses. GUARANTEED
ANALYSIS: Chondroitin Sulfate, min 1.750 mg per oz. INGREDIENTS:
Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal, Chondroitin Sulfate, Mineral Oil,
INDICATIONS: Max Flex Chondroitin contains 1,750 mg per oz. of
95+% chondroitin sulfate in an alfalfa meal base without any
non-nutritional fillers. Chondroitin sulfates are found in the
cartilage and connective tissues of animals, and are part of the
family of glycosaminoglycans, which are produced naturally in
the bodies of animals. DOSAGE: Feed 1 oz. per day in regular
grain ration. Feed 2 oz. per day for initial loading dose (3 or 4
weeks). (Based on a 1100 lb. adult horse). 1 oz. measuring scoop
included. 3.6 KG/8 pound tub. 60 day supply. Retail
FLEX FREE MAXIMUM STRENGTH by VITA FLEX:
Vita-Flex® in 1988, Flex Free® was the original chondroitin
sulfate (CS) supplement for horses. Over the years we have
watched many “copycat” products come and go, but Flex Free® has
endured the test of time. Known and trusted throughout the
world, Flex Free is known to deliver 1,750 mg of high-quality CS
per ounce. Thanks to its quality ingredients and performance,
Flex Free has become the standard for equine GAG
supplementation. It is the original and still the best. Horses
are subject to great wear-and-tear of the joints. Both can be
characterized by the breakdown of the joint's cartilage, the
part of the joint that cushions the ends of bones. Cartilage
breakdown causes bones to rub against each other, causing
swelling, pain and loss of movement. As the rate of swelling
increases the breakdown of the cartilage also increases, causing
a “vicious cycle.” Oral CS has been shown to reduce swelling in
the equine joint, as well reducing certain protein markers in
the synovial fluid, the fluid that acts as a shock absorber in
the joints. Flex Free can help to break the vicious cycle,
allowing your horses to resume a more normal and pain free life.
Ingredients: Chondroitin sulfates. Recommended Feeding: Feed ½
scoop twice daily for 3 to 4 weeks. Reduce to 1/2 scoop daily
for maintenance. To assure economical use, measure accurately
and blend thoroughly with feed. Increase feeding of large breeds
proportionately according to body weight in excess of 1,000
pounds. A serving scoop is included.
8 oz. container/110 day supply. Retail $85.99...SALE $39.99!!!
4 oz. container/55 day supply. Retail $50.99...SALE $24.99!!!
**Are Chondroitin Sulfates Absorbable? Studies over the past 40
years in Japan, the US and Europe have clearly shown that
chondroitin sulfates can be absorbed in intact, biologically
active form following oral administration. Using a variety of
techniques with laboratory animals, dogs, and humans,
researchers have found that up to 40% of dietary chondroitin
sulfates can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
