CARTIFLEX is recommended for athletic horses for which an optimal joint function and comfort is desired, particularly during work programs (training, racing and competing season), when the joints structures (cartilage, tendons and ligaments) are heavily solicited.
Contains an original combination of natural Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) and brown seaweed extracts, as well as the antioxidants vitamin E and Selenium.
Green lipped mussels are naturally rich in glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and lipids, key constituents for joint cartilage health. Brown seaweed, like green lipped mussels draw from the sea an incomparable wealth of not only mineral, vitamin and trace elements which can account for up to 36% of dry matter, notably present are calcium and magnesium, both vital components for the joint structure but also algal phytonutrients (phlorotannins), which provide a wide range of potential biological activity. Lipids represent 1-5 % of algal dry matter and show an interesting polyunsaturated fatty acid composition particularly with regard to omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids which contribute to joint health.
Selenium and vitamin E contribute to the formidable antioxidant network of the horse.
