What is ProFlex?
ProFlex supports the skeletal, endocrine, nervous and circulatory systems. It may provide a rejuvenating effect on the horses joints and organs and may also increase the growth of new cartilage.
ProFlex has been designed to provide the horse with the precursors necessary for the natural synthesis of ingredients that play a vital role in joint and ligament health. In doing so the horse can continue to regenerate collagen, ligaments, cartilage, and connective tissue as required.
Sometimes when we continue to provide the horse with an ingredient they would usually synthesize themselves, the trigger to produce that ingredient is switched off. The unique ingredients in ProFlex avoids this by nutritionally supporting the systems involved in the long term health of the horse.
ProFlex is not a quick fix. While horses may show improvement over a few days, to utilise the results of this supplement it should be fed over a long period of time. ProFlex is not a drug and is a non toxic feed supplement.
About the Ingredients
Glucosamine is found in tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid, muscle membranes and several structures in the eye, blood vessels and heart valves. The inclusion of gelatin enhances the glucosamine spectrum and may increase potency.
Methlysulphonylmethane (MSM) is a source of sulphur that is converted into an important component of connective tissue. It may have a role in alleviating osteo and oxidative stress. MSM may also have anti-inflammatory benefits.
Lysine is an amino acid that when hydroxylated by Vitamin C, is extremely important in the structure of cartilage tissue and protein synthesis.
Vitamin C is an essential element for the formulation of the hydroxyl groups needed in cartilage synthesis. Vitamin C deficiency may result in reduced production of collagen - the protein based structure in tendons and ligaments.
Zinc is required by over 70 different enzymes to function. In this instance Zinc is used in the hydrolysis and cross linking needed for collagen formation.
The Citrus Bioflavenoid Hesperidin in ProFlex acts as an antioxidant protection to mitigate free radical activity, which occurs as a result of cartilage degradation.
Gotu Kola is a herb thought to support the integrity of blood vessels and connective tissue, as well as the horse’s production of Chondroitin Sulphate and Hyaluronic acid.
