FlexiMover® – optimum purity, winning combinations

By Admin

Pegasus Health’s range of FlexiMover® supplements – FlexiMover®, FlexiMover® 10:10 and FlexiMover® GOLD provide joint support to all types of horses in a wide variety of situations:

Older horses who struggle in colder weather, becoming stiff, will benefit from the powerful effects of FlexiMover®, and it is also ideal for hard working horses during time off after injury.

FlexiMover® 10:10 is the ideal choice for all working horses, to supply building blocks for healthy joint cartilage. Feed it long term, before mobility is limited.

FlexiMover® GOLD is a must after injury, and for young horses of any age who need support for their orthopaedic development. It is safe to feed to horses and ponies of any age, so is ideal for the very young, who require extra support.

Many of our horses are at high risk of musculoskeletal problems, due the athletic demands we put on them. Their joints take a great deal of wear and tear throughout their lives and extra support can help keep them comfortable and keep them working well into old age.

Joint supplements are the most popular nutritional supplements bought by horse owners. Supplementation can be an effective way to support the joints of working and older horses, especially those showing signs of wear and tear. Joint supporting supplements can also be used prophylactically i.e. to help support good health and function before any problems occur. Both hard working and older horses will benefit from supplementation as will young, developing horses who need extra joint support. Supporting the healthy performance horse with supplementation before any wear and tear is evident is prudent.

For extra herbal support, add NatureBute® to either FlexiMover® 10:10 or FlexiMover® GOLD. Where instant results are required, use NatureBute® Solution first, followed by one of the FlexiMover® products. The tincture extracts of NatureBute® Solution get to work fast and give instant support to joints.

All the FlexiMover® products, NatureBute® Solution and NatureBute® Powder are safe feed supplements, not drugs. They will not mask injuries or other problems, and will not cause cartilage degradation over time. They gently support and nourish the joints to help maintain health.

Joint supplements containing glucosamine, chondroitin and/or MSM need to be fed long-term for effectiveness, and results may take up to 6 weeks to be seen. When moving from one brand to another, the new product may take up to 6 weeks to be effective if the previous one did not supply adequate levels of the building block ingredients glucosamine and chondroitin. NatureBute® and original FlexiMover® contain herbs, which will tend to give faster initial results than FlexiMover® 10:10 or FlexiMover® GOLD. For best results, feed all the FlexiMover® products long-term, to ensure that joints are supported and nourished adequately. All the FlexiMover® products are safe to feed long-term.

A plethora of joint supporting supplements is available, but the key is to ensure adequate levels of active ingredients. Many of the useful ingredients are expensive, and some products simply do not contain enough. Pegasus Health® joint supplements are formulated to supply horse, not human level doses.

They do not contain bulkers or fillers like dextrose or other sugars, or alfalfa, and are free from colourings, flavourings and preservatives. If you look at our ingredient lists, there are no additions of tiny amounts of essential nutrients like manganese or vitamin C, which will come from a balanced diet. We only add pharmaceutical-grade ingredients that will have an effect, based on evidence to date. For this reason, at the present time you will not find hyaluronic acid in our joint supplements. There simply isn’t enough evidence that it is useful when fed as a supplement.

Pegasus Health® takes care about the sources of their product ingredients. For example, chondroitin is obtained from avian sources, not sharks or other non-sustainable sources.

Pegasus Health® has a policy of clear, informative labelling information, with no misleading claims. Where grams of an ingredient are included, we will use grams rather than milligrams, to make it clearer how much of an ingredient is supplied. 1 g is equivalent to 1000 mg so 20,000 mg is simply 20 g and should be written as such.

Neither do we recommend loading doses, because we believe that the standard dose should be the effective one. You can try reducing the dose of some of our joint supplements after you see effects or if your horse’s problem lessens. You may, however, have to feed the full dose long term if your horse needs ongoing support.

Our products offer exceptional value for money. Choose a joint supplement with the highest levels of active ingredients, which will help support your horse’s musculoskeletal health now and for the future.
