FLEXADIN UCII is an original complementary feeding stuff formulation based on a revolutionary concept, a patented undenatured (natural) type II collagen (UCII®) in combination with MSM and manganese (IPALIGO®).
UCII's difference lies in its patented extraction process that ensures the undenatured (natural) preservation of its natural triple helix structure as opposed to the hydrolysed collagens often employed. This natural form enables it to behave differently from other type II collagen ingredients once administered to the horse. Upon reaching the small intestine, UCII's novel interaction with the digestive tract is thought to explain its capacity to contribute to the continuing good health and mobility of the horse’s joints. MSM is a naturally occurring sulphur compound and nutritional component of many foods. Bioavailable sulphur is an important component of the glycosaminoglycans GAG matrix. The readily assimilated chelated manganese plays a key role as a co-factor during healthy collagen synthesis.
FLEXADIN UCII is recommended for athletic horses requiring optimal joint health and mobility.
- Initial administration 15 g once daily for 12 weeks
- Maintenance administration 10 g once daily
Due to the presence of manganese with maximum set limits, administration must not exceed 3000 g per 500 kg horse per day. This feeding stuff contains collagen - shall not be fed to ruminants.
