Unsoundness in the leg is by far the most common cause of incapacitation in the horse, due to pressures of training and competing.
Five Star Superflex contains; organic sulphur, glucosamine, l-glutamine, chondroitin sulphate and natural antioxidants for the optimum nutritional support of joints. Sulphur is the essential building block of life; and in its amino acid form represents a key constituent of healthy cell tissue. Cell regeneration requires regular supplies of sulphur to support the natural healing process. Glucosamine and l-glutamine are found as integral parts of the cartilage within the joint.
It is thought that cartilage is the first part of the joint to suffer under increased pressure, therefore it is vital that cartilage health is supported. Chondroitin sulphate is also present within healthy synovial fluid, which itself is essential to soundness and joint integrity. Many minor strains and traumas, which are part of the everyday training of performance horses, occur at the subclinical level and go undetected by the trainer or owner. If not efficiently repaired by the body these minor stresses can turn into serious problems, such as strained tendons or stiffness.
Therefore Five Star Superflex represents the premium joint formulation available for both where history dictates, and as an insurance measure. Five Star Superflex is also recommended for the older horse, as the natural regenerative processes diminish.
Horses 3 measures (13g) per day.

Five Star Superflex (per 13g dose):
Glucosamine HCl 4600mg
Chondroitin sulphate 165mg
Glucosamine HCl is well proven in research for supporting cartilage integrity and flexion. MSM is similarly well established, and recent research suggests that Glucosamine HCl and MSM should be fed in combination. Chondroitin sulphate is less important, but its role is thought to be synergistic with glucosamine. The addition of l-glutamine supports cartilage repair and comfort. Five Star Superflex also contains a unique, clinically proven herbal antioxidant complex to further support joint integrity. It is recommended both where the horse’s history dictates, long term flexibility support for life.
